America the Beautiful

My brother just made me aware of this poem by judge Roy Moore. I thought I'd pass it along:

America the beautiful,
or so you used to be.
Land of the Pilgrim's pride -
I hope they never see

Babies piled in dumpsters,
abortion on demand.
Sweet land of liberty,
your house is on the sand.

People wander aimlessly,
poisoned by cocaine.
Choosing to indulge,
when God said to abstain.

From sea to shining sea,
our country turns away,
From the teaching of God's word,
and the need to pray.

Phony TV pastors
tell lies about our Rock,
Saying God has spoke to them,
while they fleece the flock.

We've voted in a government
that's rotten to the core.
Appointing Godless judges,
who throw reason out the door.

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

You think God's not angry,
that our land's a moral slum?
How much evil will He watch,
before His Kingdom comes?

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

We who are called
need always to humbly turn and pray.
Teach others to seek His holy face,
and leave their evil way.

Then God would hear from heaven,
and forgive us of our sin.
He'd heal our sickly land,
and those who live within.

But America the beautiful,
if you don't, then you shall see.
A sad and holy Father,
withdraw His hand from thee.

Judge Roy Moore
