CALL TO CHRISTIAN RESISTANCE II
Rally, Pray-in to Support Moore, Ten Commandments

If you do not obey these commandments I will set My face against you (Lev 26:14-21).

Yesterday, a federal appeals court cleared the way for Circuit Court Judge Myron Thompson to require Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore to remove the Ten Commandments monument he erected in the State Judicial Building. Christian leaders are responding with a traditional rally in Montgomery and a peaceful "pray-in" with civil disobedience, only if necessary, to prevent removal of the Commandments (see www.prayeralert.org/judge/archives/index.html ).
.

  • Dr. Herb Titus, Moore's attorney, told reporters Moore will appeal his case to the U.S. Supreme Court and would not speculate about what Moore will do if ordered to remove the monument.
  • Rev. Pat Mahoney (Christian Defense Coalition), Rev. Rob Schenck (National Clergy Council), and John Giles (Alabama Christian Coalition) are calling believers to join them in Montgomery for a peaceful "pray-in" outside the Alabama Judicial Building. Giles told reporters, "We don't want the monument to come outeven if it requires us going to jail."
  • Judge Moore will "neither encourage nor discourage" nonviolent protests. "People have a right to stand up for what they believe," he said in a recent Alabama Television interview.
  • Baptist Pastor Rick Scarborough (Vision America), who resigned his Texas pastorate to call pastors to faithfulness in civic duty, is asking "thousands of pastors, God-fearing Americans and elected officials" to rally at the Alabama Supreme Court on Saturday, August 16, at 10 a.m. (see http://www.vision-america.org/-messages/030721rsrallyappeal.htm ).
  • Polls say Alabamans support Judge Moore (77%) and that a majority (52%) approve of civil disobedience to support him. Neither the Alabama Supreme Court police, nor Alabama's State Troopers are likely to respond to a federal order to remove the commandments. 
  • Attorney General John Ashcroft and President Bush must decide whether to force compliance.

The precise date for any effort to remove the commandments is uncertain. Rev. Mahoney is urging supporters to attend Rev. Scarborough's rally on the 16th and to stay extra days. He will post actual dates and times, when the information is known (plus hotel & motel information), on his Web Site www.christiandefensecoalition.net). He is receiving email at savethe10@aol.com.

Please Stand with Us in Special Prayer:

  • Lord, Strengthen Judge Moore for the days ahead. Give Gov. Bob Riley & every Alabama official Courage to stand. May President Bush & Atty. Gen. John Ashcroft stand for RIGHT & ACT to RESTRAIN the overreaching Federal Judiciary (Ps 94:16; 119:53; Pr 21:22; 28:4; Dan 3:16-18; 6:10; 11:32; Acts 5:4; Rom 13:11; Eph 5:14-16).
  • MOTIVATE thousands of Christians to STAND UP for the Ten Commandments in Alabama. May the American Church REPENT & ACT to restore what decades of apathy & inaction have destroyed. In Jesus' Name, Amen (Ex 1:17; 2 Sam 15:21; 22:40a; 1 Chr 12:18, 22; Ps 18:29-30; 97:10; 105:14; 119:116-120; Is 41:10; 54:17).
