OVER 50 ALABAMA PASTORS ENDORSE MOORE

MONTGOMERY, AL - On Monday, the Judge Roy Moore for U.S. Senate campaign announced the endorsement of over fifty pastors who joined in their support of Roy Moore with a powerful editorial. They praised Moore for his stalwart defense of biblical truths and urged the people of Alabama to vote their convictions on August 15th.

"We have the opportunity this Tuesday," the pastors wrote, "to send a man to Washington who shares our convictions, will fight for morality, and will restore integrity in the halls of Congress."

"For decades," they continued, "Roy Moore has been an immovable rock in the culture wars - a bold defender of the 'little guy,' a just judge to those who came before his court, a warrior for the unborn child, defender of the sanctity of marriage, and a champion for religious liberty. Judge Moore has stood in the gap for us, taken the brunt of the attack, and has done so with a rare, unconquerable resolve."

Judge Roy Moore responded to the endorsement Monday saying that: "Genuine change in America does not happen in the Senate; it happens in churches across this land and I am deeply honored to receive the support and endorsement of this group of pastors. They understand that it is acknowledgement of God and the morality of the people that will ultimately make America great again. I am committed to restoring character, courage, and integrity to our nation's Capitol and look forward to being your next United States Senator."

This editorial is latest show of support for Judge Moore from the faith community. Last week Judge Moore was endorsed by Dr. James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family and American Family Association president Tim Wildmon.

Dear friends and fellow Alabamians,

From the pulpit to hospital rooms, from wedding altars to the funeral home, from the Capitol to our prisons, we are called to serve Jesus Christ in every area of life. With our calling comes a responsibility to address such compelling cultural issues as the special election for United States Senate. We have the opportunity this Tuesday, August 15, to send a man to Washington who shares our convictions, will fight for morality, and will restore integrity in the halls of Congress. That man is Judge Roy Moore.

America has never been in a more desperate position of needing a strong, principled leader than we find ourselves in today. Exodus 18:21 gives us wise criteria for selecting our public officials when it tells us to ". look for able men from all the people, men who fear God, who are trustworthy and hate a bribe, and place such men over the people." In acknowledging that wisdom, Noah Webster wrote in 1837, ".let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers just men who will rule in the fear of God. The preservation of a republican government depends on the faithful discharge of this duty; if the citizens neglect their duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted ."

This is a rare occasion where both opportunity and responsibility converge. We are privileged to shoulder this responsibility and vote on Tuesday to elect a senator who is able, who fears God, and who is trustworthy. Judge Roy Moore is uniquely qualified to represent us, fight for our values, and restore integrity and honor to our nation's Capitol.

For decades, Roy Moore has been an immovable rock in the culture wars - a bold defender of the "little guy," a just judge to those who came before his court, a warrior for the unborn child, defender of the sanctity of marriage, and a champion for religious liberty. Judge Moore has stood in the gap for us, taken the brunt of the attack, and has done so with a rare, unconquerable resolve.

As a consequence of his unwavering faith in God and his immovable convictions for Biblical principles, he was ousted as Chief Justice in 2003. As a result, he continued his life pursuit by starting the Foundation for Moral Law, which litigates religious liberty cases around our Nation. After being re-elected again to Chief Justice in 2012, by an overwhelming majority, he took another round of persecution for our faith as he stood up for the sanctity of marriage between one man and one woman.

You can know a man by his enemies, and he's made plenty - from the radical organizations such as the Southern Poverty Law Center and the ACLU to the liberal media and a handful of establishment politicians from Washington. He has friends too, a lot of them. They live all across this great State, work hard all week, and fill our pews on Sunday. They know him as a father, a grandfather, a man who loves God's Word and knows much of it by heart, a man who cares for the people, a man who understands our Constitution in the tradition of our Founding Fathers, and a man who deeply loves America. It's no wonder the Washington establishment has declared all-out war on his campaign.

We are ready to join the fight and send a bold message to Washington: dishonesty, fear of man, and immorality are an affront to our convictions and our Savior and we won't put up with it any longer. We urge you to join us at the polls on Tuesday, August 15th to cast your vote for Roy Moore.
