Guest essay by William J. Murray
One of the most important special elections this year pits conservative Christian Roy Moore against Doug Jones, a radical leftist who has worked for George Soros- funded organizations.
The differences between Jones and Moore are crystal clear. Former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore seeks a Senate seat to fight for the U.S. Constitution, religious liberty, the right to life of unborn babies and the traditional family.
Democrat candidate Doug Jones has been pushing for felony voting “rights” and worked for a Soros-funded group that seeks to tum U.S. Attorneys into social justice warriors who will use the law to impose a “progressive” agenda on all Americans. It is a core leftist belief in America today that those who oppose their views should not be allowed freedom of speech or press. Right now, this is most obvious on college campuses.
Judge Moore was recently interviewed by WND on what he sees as the greatest threats to America. While external threats are serious, Moore sees internal threats as being more menacing to our freedoms. According to Moore, “We’ve got more of a threat from the internal. That’s why the oath taken is to defend and protect America from all enemies [foreign] and domestic. We’ve got a lot of domestic enemies that are degrading our country and making us weak,” he said. “We are losing our structure of government. No foreign country will destroy us. We will be destroyed from within when we give up an understanding of the Constitution and how it restrains power all the way down to the people.”
He continued: “The hardest thing to relay to the media is the relevance of God to a prosperous country. If we don’t understand that then we lose our country because we don’t understand that things like God-given rights are inalienable because they are not given by government. They are given by God. That means that government can’t take them from you. When we forget that, government will take your rights from you.
“When God gives rights, no government can take them from you. When you deny God, government certainly has an ability to take away your rights, and that’s the problem that we face today. We’ve been convinced that government give us our rights, the Constitution somehow gives it to us. The Constitution doesn’t give us our rights, it takes them from us.”
The special election takes place on December 12. Please pray for Judge Moore. He faces ridicule in the leftist media and a well-funded opponent who will say and do anything to get elected.
