Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore was the headline speaker at an event kicking off a week of activities by the radical group Operation Save America.

The Concord, North Carolina group grew out of Operation Rescue National. It is headed by Flip Benham, the father of social conservatives David and Jason Benham.

According to, about 300 people on Saturday filed in to the Fresh Anointing House of Worship in Montgomery to hear Moore speak.

Moore, who has led a campaign urging officials to defy federal courts, including the Supreme Court, and not issue marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples, spoke for about a half hour, telling the audience that the United States was under attack.

“If we don't know God, we don't know our country and we don't know our constitution,” Moore said. “It's about one nation under God.”

He said that the decision by the “federal beast” – a reference to the high court – was an attack on Christians.

“In 2015 when they make same-sex marriage a fundamental right they put actions behind it. … They say every probate judge must issue a license; every cake baker must bake a cake; every photographer must take a picture; every decorator must arrange flowers. What I am trying to tell you is this: We just suffered a loss of religious liberty.”

Moore ended his remarks with a poem he wrote.

“One Nation under God was their cry and declaration,

Upon the law of Nature's God they built a mighty Nation.

For unlike mankind before them who had walked this earthen sod,

These men would never question the Sovereignty of God.

That all men were 'created' was a truth 'self-evident,'

To secure the rights God gave us was the role of government.

And if any form of government became destructive of this end,

It was their right, indeed their duty, a new one to begin.

So with a firm reliance on Divine Providence for protection,

They pledged their sacred honor and sought His wise direction.

They lifted up an appeal to God for all the world to see,

And vowed their independence forever to be free.

I'm glad they're not here with us to see the mess we're in,

How we've given up our righteousness for a life of indulgent sin.

For when abortion isn't murder and sodomy is deemed a right,

Then evil is now called good and darkness is now called light.

While truth and law were founded on the God of all creation,

Man now, through law, denies the truth and calls it 'separation.'

No longer does man see a need for God when he's in full control,

For the only truth self-evident is in the latest poll.

But with man as his own master we fail to count the cost,

Our precious freedoms vanish and our liberty is lost.

Children are told they can't pray in school and they teach them evolution,

When will they see the fear of God is the only true solution?

Our schools have become a battleground while all across the land,

Christians shrug their shoulders afraid to take a stand.

And from the grave their voices cry, the victory has already been won.

Just glorify the Father as did His only Son.

And when your work on earth is done, and you've traveled where we've trod,

You'll leave the land we left to you, One Nation Under God!”
