Alabama Senate candidate, former Chief Justice, and known theocrat Roy Moore is at it again. He said that America promotes a lot of “bad things’ like same-sex marriage.
When reminded of the time that former President Ronald Reagan called Russia the focus of evil in the modern world, Moore said that we could say the same thing about America because of the fact that we allow same-sex marriage in this country.
When he was told that his views are similar to Russian leader Vladimir Putin, Moore said:
“Well, maybe Putin is right. Maybe he’s more akin to me than I know.”
Moore also thinks that President Trump was placed in the White House by God. He also, coincidentally, can’t think of any of the Ten Commandments that President Donald Trump has broken.
Roy Moore is the frontrunner to fill the vacancy in the Senate left by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Moore became famous in 2001 when he refused to get rid of the Ten Commandments monument that he had installed outside of the Alabama Courthouse.
Back in September of 2016, Roy Moore was suspended from his Chief Justice position because he issued orders that conflicted with the Supreme Court’s gay marriage ruling. He sent letters to county clerks telling them not to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, directly against the SCOTUS ruling.
He had gotten in trouble for the Ten Commandments in his courtroom back in the 1990s. He was also told to stop having prayers before meetings. He once said:
“Separation of church and state was never meant to separate God and government.”
When asked if he is on the wrong side of history for his views on gay marriage, he once said:
“Absolutely not. Do they stop with one man and one man or one woman and one woman? Or do they go to multiple marriages? Or do they go to marriages between men and their daughters or women and their sons?”
This ignorant bigot does not need to be a Senator.
