The Worldnutdaily did an interview with Roy Moore, who was once again elected to be the chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court this month. There’s so much irony in this article that if you sat it on your desk, it would point to the north pole. Like this:
“The Constitution is the rule of law, and [my job is] to uphold is to uphold the rule of law,” he said.
This from the guy who was removed from office for refusing to comply with a federal court order because, he says, “God’s law” supercedes the constitution.
“Without an understanding of God,” he told WND in a recent post-election interview, “you can’t understand the Constitution.” …
Moore, many will remember, was the judge who was removed from the same position he’s now assuming 10 years ago for refusing a federal court’s order to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the state judicial building in Alabama.
He’s explained repeatedly that he has no plans to bring that back, because the monument became a distraction from the real issue: the acknowledgement of God as explained in the national and state constitutions. And he says there’s no possibility of true justice without that.
Ah yes, “true justice.” Like demanding that a lesbian mother be put in jail or put to death because Leviticus says so, which he actually did in an opinion in a custody case that had nothing to do with the mother’s sexual orientation. “True justice” means killing all the people God says to kill.
