Roy Moore: Judge. Candidate. Poet?


I've had my eye on this page at Snopes.com, a site specializing in verifying or debunking common urban legends. The site mentions a poem supposedly written by an Alabama gubernatorial candidate. Snopes still has the status of this urban legend as "incomplete" meaning they have not determined if the information in question can be attributed to the alleged author.

Well, luckily PoliticalWire (a great source for national political news) points to proof that this poem was indeed authored by Alabama's own Roy Moore. Slate and the Atlantic Monthly independently confirmed the work as a Moore original. I think the poem speaks for itself and frankly I don't know what to say about it.

So without further ado, here is Roy Moore's poem "America the Beautiful":

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.

I had been trying to verify if this is real before I posted it and all I could find that was semi-legitimate was a World Net Daily column that referred to it. Do you know if he actually wrote it?

Yes, he wrote it and he's read it in speeches before.

www.truthorfiction.com has it as truth as well. here's what they say:
Patriotic Poem Written by Judge Roy Moore-Truth!

Summary of the eRumor
A poem said to have been written by the famous "Ten Commandments Judge" Roy Moore of Alabama.

The Truth
According to the folks at the Foundation For Moral Law this poem was written by Judge Moore.
The Foundation For Moral Law had championed the cause of Judge Moore and his defense of The Ten Commandments.
The name Judge Roy Moore became well known across America when he was sued by the ACLU for a wood-burned miniature of The Ten Commandments that was on display in his courtroom.
He won that three-year case on a technicality.
He later became Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court and had a 2 1/2 ton monument of The Ten Commandments brought into the Supreme Court building.
He was again sued by the ACLU and that case resulted in an order to have the monument removed.
Judge Moore refused and was removed from his post as Chief Justice.

Yeah JNN gives a lot of good evidence. The main thing I was going by was this article at Political Wire.

Moore DOES write poetry. He read one of his poems at the VFW in Wetumpka back in December.

I read this poem to my adult Sunday School class last week and everyone thought it was wonderful. I guess your reaction to this poem depends on your spiritual convictions and your moral backbone. Personaly, I believe that Judge Roy Moore is a great American and I wish him well in his bid for Gov. of Alabama. This country could use more men like Judge Roy. Men of conviction whose moral compass is not swayed by every wind of social liberalism. Wake up America!! Time is running out.
