Overview

Chief Justice Roy Moore believes the state must acknowledge the moral principles on which America was founded and that it is not illegal to do so. While the separation of church and state may be a credible and legitimate tenet, it has been largely misconstrued and abused during the last forty years.

Moore was sworn to uphold the Constitution of the United States. His critics, both within conservative circles and without, have maintained that he violated the law by disobeying the order of a federal judge to remove a monument of the Ten Commandments. But Moore brilliantly argues that those who have ordered him to violate his oath have, in fact, broken the law.

So Help Me God will articulate why he believes elected and appointed government officials have the right and the obligation to acknowledge God as the foundation of American government and jurisprudence.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
His three-year battle to defend the public display of the Ten Commandments cost Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore cost him his seat on the bench but won him numerous supporters among conservatives and religious fundamentalists. In So Help Me God, the West Point graduate defends his stand and explains why those who ordered him to violate his oath have, in fact, broken the law.
Library Journal
The U.S. Constitution has become a polarizing political, religious, cultural, and emotional issue. That said, readers will either be vehemently for or against this sensitive, intelligent, and clearly religious autobiography of former Chief Justice Roy Moore of Alabama, who was removed from office after refusing to move the Ten Commandments memorial from the State Judicial Building. The main issue is the public acknowledgment of the Judeo-Christian God, who gave us the Ten Commandments and who, according to Moore, inspired the writing of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. Liberal federal courts insist that these documents were framed by deists and secularists, not Christians, and that Moore's book is clearly revisionist history. But Moore insists that the federal courts are also not only interpreting the law but also making the law, taking jurisdiction away from state courts, and accepting the globalization of human rights, which does not always square with traditional American values. Like the Constitution, this thought-provoking book polarizes and should spark meaningful discussion among Americans. Recommended for public and academic libraries.-Gary P.

    Roy Moore wants the government to further his religion

    Roy Moore in his book makes the statement that secular humanism is about humans making themselves a god. Mr. Moore frankly does not know what he is talking about. Secular humanists dont' believe that human beings are a deity (which we as a group dont' believe in) but that human beings are obligated to be mature and make hard decisions about the world. I nor any other secular humanism believe we are all knowing, all perfect, all intelligent etc. We are imperfect of course but since no deity exists then we are obligated to make our way in the world we live in. We have to figure out that murder is wrong not because of the whim of a deity, but because morality is directly related to the concept of harm and without harm then nothing would be moral or immoral. Now, Mr. Moore believes that without a belief in a deity that gave us rights we would not have the freedom we now enjoy. What is freer though, very religious Saudi Arabia or secular Norway? Or, to compare nations with a Christian history, 15th century very religious England or secular 15th century England today? There is a direct correlation to how secular a nation is, to how free it is. That is not surprising. Very religious people believe that laws should be based on the commands of their deity and that doesn't make for a very free nation. Even secular dictatorships such as the Soviet Union were based on this authoritian model. While they did not have a literal deity they had ones analogous in Marx, Lenin, Stalin and historical materialism. Mr. Moore believes it is fine for the government to "acknowledge" religion along as it is his religion. He is so kind of course to allow non-Christians to be non-Christians but they should fully expect their tax dollars to be used to support the beleif in his deity such as through "In God we trust" on our currency or on 10 commandment monuments put up on governmetal buildings. Mr. Moore and others like him, if they believe their deity is true, should be happy to debate that question in the marketplace of ideas and not through the force of government. The question is, what is he and others like him afraid of though?

    Judge Moore: Standing For The Truth

    Chief Justice Roy Moore's book So Help Me God is a fascinating story of a man who dared to stand up against judicial tyranny. Roy Moore shows us that all throughout our nation's history the right to acknowledge Almighty God as the Supreme Law Giver has been evident. More important than his own story, this book explains the background of the whole 'separation of Church and state' argument. Moore was removed from his position as chief justice because he stood by his oath to uphold the Constitution. Moore is a true illustration of how seriously every Christian leader should take his oath.

    GOD BLESS ROY MOORE

    'SO HELP ME GOD' IS A VERY WELL WRITTION BOOK AND VERY HARD TO PUT DOWN. THE HONORABLE ROY MOORE PRESENTS EVIDENCE SHOWING THAT THIS IS A CHRISTIAN NATION AND WE SHOULD HAVE A LEGAL RIGHT TO DISPLAY THE 10 COMMANDMENTS IN PUBLIC AND IN THIS VERY MOVING BOOK HE PRESENTS SOME VERY HISTORTIC EVIDENCE TO PROVE BEYOND A SHADOW OF A DOUBT THAT HE IS RIGHT. GET THIS BOOK FOR A FRIEND AND OR FAMILY MEMBER IT MAKES A GREAT GIFT. ITS A TRUE WAKE UP CALL.
