My Roy Moore Prediction

Jeff at Politics in Alabama notes that Roy Moore has filed an amicus brief in the latest battle over the pledge of allegiance. (The brief is here).

For now, I'm not going to comment about the case, or Moore's brief. But I think the brief does indicate Moore's career path, something we've all been curious about since he was thrashed in the primary.

The butt-kicking he received in the last election rules out a life in politics. He spoke and the people rejected him. There is no bad guy to blame this time. No one is persecuting him. He just lost. This, I think, means Moore's career as a public servant is over.

However, he probably is not going to fade away either. He had a chance when he was a judge in Gadsden to act justly, love mercy, and to walk humbly with his God. Instead he chose to do his acts of righteousness before men, to be seen by them. To be fair, the ACLU thrust Moore into the spotlight initially, but Moore never stepped out of it. Not for him was the call the humble service, no, he had a crusade to lead. His call was to glory.

He won't reject that calling now. Sure, he may never be president, or even a judge. He can remain in public life, though. I think he is going to try to turn the Foundation for Moral Law into somethink like the Thomas Moore Law Center: A legal group dedicated to advancing the establishment of the Christian religion. The amicus briefs the Foundation is filing are advertisements. Sooner or later we are going to hear that the Foundation has signed as a client some poor, persecuted school district that the nasty ol' ACLU is suing for making kids pray in school.

That is my prediction, anyway.

    From the beginning, the Foundation had said they were only involved in Moore’s defense at the current time. They’ve always said they would expand their outreach at a later time. Now that Roy Moore isn’t running for governor, they may have the perfect spokesperson.

    Oh goody! I was wondering last night if it would be safe to remove my “No Moore” bumper sticker. Guess not.
