Former and almost certainly future Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore, an unabashed theocrat, joins the long list of wingnuts who are convinced that anything bad that happens must be God’s punishment on us. Conveniently, that punishment is being meted out because of all the things Moore himself opposes, abortion and gay marriage.
My favorite part is where he says that “they” are “trying to take away that natural union of a man and a woman.” Really? Who wants to take that away? No one is trying to prevent straight people from getting married, for crying out loud. To be fair, though, he may be right; I can almost believe that God is punishing the people of Alabama by inflicting this authoritarian clown on them again. Actually, they’re going to do it to themselves by voting him in.
