Alabama Judge Roy Moore Book

"This book is a must-read in order to understand how judicial supremacists have denied our inalienable right to acknowledge God."

-- Phyllis Schlafly, Founder, Eagle Forum

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Broadman & Holman Publishers is pleased to announce the release of former Alabama Judge Roy S. Moore's So Help Me God: The Ten Commandments, Judicial Tyranny, and the Battle for Religious Freedom.

Moore's unwavering stand against the removal of the Ten Commandments monument from Alabama's state Judicial Building rotunda, which resulted in his removal from the highest judicial office in Alabama, received international attention. Moore, who has filed amicus briefs in the two upcoming Ten Commandments cases before the U.S. Supreme Court on March 2, 2005, has said that one must acknowledge God to understand both the Alabama and United States Constitutions, a topic he explores in his upcoming Broadman & Holman release.

Kenneth H. Stephens, president of Broadman & Holman, said, "The growing controversy over the issues of religious freedom and freedom of speech, and the specific incident of the ruling to remove the Ten Commandments monument from the Alabama state courthouse, is a topic of concern for all Americans. Chief Justice Moore is uniquely qualified to present the compelling Judeo-Christian views of our founding fathers on the subject, backed by his firsthand experience and vast knowledge of the legal foundations of our country."

Stephens continues, "It is an honor for me to be associated with the publication of the book, So Help Me God, by Judge Roy Moore. As a brilliant jurist, Moore takes on some of the most controversial issues of our day and forces the question, "can the state acknowledge God?" His solid arguments, based firmly on both American history and Constitutional law, will inform both those who agree and those who do not share his views. So Help Me God will clarify issues for both sides of the debate.

"As a graduate of West Point and a combat veteran, Alabama Judge Moore has demonstrated his character as a true patriot and defender of liberty. By taking a stand, at considerable personal cost and sacrifice, on the issue of the state's acknowledgement of God, he has demonstrated his faith as a devout Christian as well as faithfulness as a public servant to the intent and guarantees of our Constitution," Stephens said.

On his decision to publish the book, So Help Me God, Moore said, "It is time that the American people awake to the true meaning of separation of church and state and our unique relationship to God as a Nation. No longer can we afford to sit quietly by while the A.C.L.U. and others take away our right to publicly acknowledge God secured by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution."

List the 10 Commandments.

The list of the 10 Commandments is found in Deuternonmy 5. After the list is given, the below gives us specific instruction about them. Deuteronomy 6:2-3
2     That thou mightest fear the LORD thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son's son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.
3     Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the LORD God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey.
