Judge Roy Moore of Alabama was the judge at the center of the 
"Ten Commandments" controversy. Below is his rather sad 
lament at what has been happening to his country: 


AMERICA the BEAUTIFUL
~by Judge Roy Moore.

America the Beautiful, 
or so you used to be. 
Land of the Pilgrims' pride; 
I'm glad they'll never see. 

Babies piled in dumpsters, 
Abortion on demand, 
Oh, sweet land of liberty; 
your house is on the sand. 

Our children wander aimlessly 
poisoned by cocaine, 
Choosing to indulge their lusts, 
when God has said abstain. 

From sea to shining sea, 
our Nation turns away 
From the teaching of God's love 
and a need to always pray. 

We've kept God in our temples, 
how callous we have grown. 
When earth is but His footstool, 
and Heaven is His throne. 

We've voted in a government 
that's rotting at the core, 
Appointing Godless Judges 
who throw reason out the door, 

Too soft to place a killer 
in a well deserved tomb, 
But brave enough to kill a baby 
before he leaves the womb. 

You think that God's not angry, 
that our land's a moral slum? 
How much longer will He wait 
before His judgment comes? 

How are we to face our God, 
from Whom we cannot hide? 
What then is left for us to do, 
but stem this evil tide? 

If we who are His children, 
will humbly turn and pray; 
Seek His holy face 
and mend our evil way: 

Then God will hear from Heaven 
and forgive us of our sins, 
He'll heal our sickly land 
and those who live within. 

But, America the Beautiful, 
if you don't - then you will see, 
A sad but Holy God 
withdraw His hand from Thee. 

~Judge Roy Moore
