FOR TEN COMMANDMENTS
Internet Kindling Spiritual Grassfire Prayer
Oh, that they had such a
heart in them that they would fear Me and always keep all My
commandments, that it might be well with them and with their
children forever! (Dt 5:29)
Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore filed a petition with the
U.S. Supreme Court last week seeking to replace the monument
he erected in the Alabama Judicial Building. The monument, removed
on the order of a federal judge, now sits in a closet. Meanwhile,
a "Ten Commandments Caravan" made its way from Montgomery
to Washington conducting rallies along the way.
- The "Ten Commandments Caravan," led by Rev. Rob
Schenck, Rev. Pat Mahoney, John Giles & Steve Elliot, arrived
in Washington, D.C., October 5. Hundreds rallied at the U.S.
Capitol in the afternoon, then shared in a candlelight prayer
service outside the U.S. Supreme Court. Most returned Monday
morning for a prayer rally outside the Court before making visits
to their Congressmen to encourage support for the Ten Commandments
- Thousands rallied along the caravan route and thousands more
participated via a "virtual tour" conducted on the
Internet. In Lufkin, Texas, Ambassador Alan Keyes told rally
attendees Judge Moore had birthed a movement that could spark
- Alabama Congressman Robert Aderholt (R) told the Washington
gathering he is crafting a bill to display the Monument inside
the U.S. Capitol. Aderholt's Ten Commandments Defense Act
(H.R.2045) now has 102 cosponsors.
- Grassfire.net's president Steve Elliot informed the
crowd his organization had surpassed its goal to enlist a quarter
million people to petition the Supreme Court to hear Judge Moore's
case and uphold the right to display the Ten Commandments. By
Monday morning, 384,000 persons had signed the petition. (To
sign the petition, visit http://www.grassfire.net/).
- Meanwhile, Judge Moore, temporarily suspended from office
because of his commandments stand, is speaking to churches across
America lighting revival fires wherever he goes.
Moore explains that he is not campaigning for a monument but
for the right and responsibility of American government to
acknowledge God. The Capitol Hill Prayer Alert Foundation
believes Judge Moore's stand against judicial tyranny is like
Elijah's stand on Mt. Carmel. Moore has called America to choose:
do nothing and let our federal courts purge God from American
history, law and life; or REPENT and insist that our nation remain
as God and our founders intended a nation "under God."
