Judge not lest ye be judged....

A blog I visited today talks about the case of Judge Roy Moore from Alabama . Judge Moore was sued by the ACLU for displaying the Ten Commandments in his courtroom foyer. He has been stripped of his judgeship and now they are trying to strip his right to practice law in Alabama .

The blog quotes a poem written by the judge which ends as follows.

"A sad but Holy God withdraw His hand from Thee.."

What about forgiveness that Christianity preaches, what about tolerance, what about turning the other cheek.

It seems to me that some so-called Christians choose to pervert what Jesus REALLY taught (according to the New Testament) to suit their own narrow minded-ness and the right of others who don't share their beliefs to do what they will with their own lives and their own bodies.

Isn't that what the USA Constitution says along with the right to believe what you will without persecution - even if that isn't a belief in God/Jesus?

You can ASK another person to understand what you believe and offer them the chance to do the same, you can't FORCE them to accept it or IMO you are actually no better than Hitler.

Sort your own lives out, look into your own hearts and minds and find vanity, pride, hatred and self-righteousness. Get rid of those, then you can preach to others what to do with THEIR lives.

I would have fewer issues with the pro-lifers if most of them didn't also speak vehemently against contraception and teaching sex-education and birth control in school. Not just in USA, but worldwide.

This judge has been appointed by the USA to enforce and uphold the law of the land, NOT the law as he sees it.

He should put aside his personal beliefs when he is at work, or if he can't do this, he should resign. It's a simple choice.
