Overview

In his first overseas trip as president, Barack Obama assured other nations that America is not a Christian nation. Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore begs to differ. Moore, who rose to national prominence when he disobeyed the order of a federal judge to remove a monument to the Ten Commandments from his courthouse, makes the compelling case that 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 misconstrued and abused during the last 40 years. Moore swore 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. But Moore argues that those who ordered him to violate his oath in fact broke the law. So Help Me God articulates why Moore believes elected and appointed government officials have the right and the obligation to acknowledge God as the foundation of American government.

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?
