Alabama's Gubernatorial Candidates

---First published on when I used that site--- Sorry for not posting this before - some of the keys on the keyboard were not working and it would have taken a long time to copy and paste. Last Tuesday  some of my family and I had a opportunity to hear the Republican Alabama Gubernatorial Candidates speak!
  1. Tim James
  2. Roy Moore
  3. Bradley Byrne
  4. Bill Johnson
  5. Kay Ivey
  6. Robert Bentley
(I have had only 1 chance to hear them other than Roy Moore speak so any info I provide about them is only from 1 time.) I will be focusing on the first 3 because I don't remember the other three saying anything that showed they were Christian. Tim James - a lot of Christians seem to like him, but I am not sure why.   Because  when he was speaking I did not hear anything showing he was a Christian (there may have been 1 time it was said in his intro).  If he will not say he is a Christian for fear of not being elected I sure don't want him as governor.  I may be totally wrong, but I don't see how someone can forget to say something that important. Bradley Byrne - from what I heard he seemed like a great choice for governor.  He wants a smaller government, he is a Christian, and he was  even bold enough to mention he was against homosexual marriage! Roy Moore - The reason my family is going for him and not Bradley Byrne is because he has had a chance to prove that he fears God more than man.  He was  even removed from the office of chief justice because tyrants in government forced him to choose between not acknowledging God (his duty - he swore to uphold the Constitution which acknowledges God) or acknowledging God and being removed by their unlawful actions.  He chose correctly though it cost him dearly because as the Apostle Peter said "we must obey God rather than men!" Acts 5:29 He is pro-life, anti-sodomite (homosexual) marriage, pro-homeschool.  He wants a smaller, more Constitutional government, and he does what he says he will do! Here is proof that he was absolutely right:
James Madison, our Constitution's chief architect, said: "We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future of all our political institutions upon the capability of mankind for self-government; upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments"
John Quincy Adams said:  "The highest glory of the American revolution was this:  it connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity" George Washington said:  "Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the Providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to to implore His protection and favor..." George Washington also said "It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible" Samuel Adams said "Religion and good morals are the only solid foundations of public liberty and happiness.   [N]either the wisest constitution not the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manner are universally corrupt. A general dissolution of the principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy.  While the people are virtuous , they cannot be subdued; but once they lose their virtue, they will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external of internal invader."
