He has kept a relatively low profile here in Alabama, but one state away, Roy Moore is issuing a vocal challenge to Christians. The suspended chief justice spoke Saturday at a Promise Keepers convention in Atlanta.
Moore told the crowd that Christians are in a war between good and evil. In the midst of the legal battle over his Ten Commandments monument, he told them that they must fight against those who want to deprive them the right to acknowledge God.
"Though we face the wrath of hell, against those gates we shall prevail," he said. "In homes and schools across our land, it's time for Christians to take a stand."
Moore was scheduled to speak at an Atlanta church Sunday. Back in Montgomery, he faces a trial in the court of the judiciary for violating a federal court order. Meanwhile, he says he still plans to appeal the Ten Commandments monument case to the U.S. Supreme Court when the justices return from summer break in October.
