Christian Supremacist Doesn’t Like Non-Christian Prayers

Justice Roy Moore of the Alabama Supreme Court, a genuine Christian totalitarian, is very upset that the city of Huntsville is allowing non-Christians to give the invocations before city council meetings. Never mind that the Supreme Court actually requires them to do so.

The chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court recently stated that a city that allowed atheist and Wiccan invocations at their council meetings was “foolish” for doing so.

“We’re having prayers [by] atheists? We’re having Wiccans say prayers? How foolish can we be? … I’ll say this in Huntsville because I think it needs to be said in Huntsville,” said Roy Moore, known as the “Ten Commandments Judge” for once putting a large Decalogue monument in the rotunda of Alabama’s highest court, earlier this month.

Speaking before the Madison County Republican Men’s Club, Moore specifically denounced Huntsville City Council for their allowance of non-Christian prayers at their government meetings.

“There is one God and it’s the God on which this nation was founded. And it’s the God of the Scriptures. I don’t need applause for that. It’s a truth in history and it’s a truth in law.”

Moore still hasn’t learned his lesson after being smacked down by the federal courts and subsequently removed from the bench a decade ago when he refused to remove the Ten Commandments monument he had put up at the courthouse. You know why he didn’t learn his lesson? Because the voters of Alabama put him right back into office. Because they apparently like theocracy. This is the same judge who wrote in a custody ruling that gay people should be imprisoned or put to death.

    If you don’t have a Christian Prayer the meeting doesn’t count. Look at the minutes after the meeting with the Athiest “prayer”; the pages are completely blank! I rest my case.

    Never mind that the Supreme Court actually requires them to do so.

    Really, Ed! Are you still under the misapprehension that Christians have to follow pesky things like the Constitution? Not when they have the word of God right from his own mouth.

    Judge who doesn’t give a fuck about the constitution still doesn’t. Film at 11.

    “We’re having prayers [by] atheists? We’re having Wiccans say prayers? How foolish can we be? … I’ll say this in Huntsville because I think it needs to be said in Huntsville,”

    What’s this derp about foolishness supposed to mean, besides “me not like”? And would have any more, less, or different meaning if he said it anywhere else?

    Pretending there’s a meaningful difference between religious brand identities again, I see. And that his brand has some exclusive overarching all-encompassing Troof ™.

    @4: Uh, what’s redundant about “Republican Men’s Club?” I know of quite a few Republican women and quite a few Democratic men.

  • tfkreference

    @5: Yes, many Republican fathers and husbands allow their daughters and wives to be Republican.

    @6: Huh?

  • davidworthington

    Huntsville is about the only place in the state where this might happen. They even let scientists live there.

    I’ve been to the Republican Men’s Club. The strippers walk from table to table asking the customers if they’d like “a private talk about tax cuts”.

    Those men are, of course, RINOs who have succumbed to the pinko commie Suffragette agenda.

    “There is one God and it’s the God on which this nation was founded. And it’s the God of the Scriptures. I don’t need applause for that. It’s a truth in history and it’s a truth in law.”

    Prove it, then. Objectively. Scientifically. Honestly. Demonstrate the existence of God in a way that convinces and persuades skeptics.

    Otherwise, it’s stuck under the label “faith” so people can insist that they don’t have to prove what they know in their heart and everyone else ducks their heads and murmurs a vague approval so there aren’t any fights which will end in violence if they’re with the religious or be lost if they’re with the atheists.

    Modusoperandi@9,

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they offer arbitrage on the side!

    And I’ve been a member of several children’s clubs. (A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far, away.)

    So we have this judge who doesn’t understand the difference between what he thinks should be, and what the law actually is?

    .

    Am I …odd, that I think this is a simple concept? Because an awful lot of people don’t seem to have a grasp on this.

    Because the voters of Alabama put him right back into office. Because they apparently like theocracy.

    See, this is why I think judges should not be elected. How can you expect them to protect the rights of minorities when they have to get the majority to vote for them?

    Judges should not be politicians. We already have politicians. Judges are supposed to be a check on them. How does this work, if they share the same voters? How can they be independent?

    Similar arguments work for the police, or the DA.

    The astonishing thing is not that justice in the US is so broken – the astonishing thing is that it is not far more broken.

    Hear, hear! We don’t elect police officers; we shouldn’t elect judges, and DAs should probably not be elected either, except making them appointees instead only assures that (like US Attorneys) they will sometimes be more concerned with elected politicians above them than with the responsibilities they were appointed to fulfill.

    No offence, dan4, but are you, umm, an idiot?

    If I’m honest, being from Australia I often have a vaguely Alice-looking-glass feeling when the subject of US justice/legal officers is on the table. I simply cannot understand how anyone can elect judges or DAs or prosecutors or police chiefs and think they’re getting professional public servants. The prime characteristic of a public servant has to be that their advice/ opinions/ actions are driven by law and explicit policy rather than by political affiliations/ alliances or tit-for-tat directed to political enemies/ friends.

    Reading a lot of crime fiction at bedtime, I then find there are (or at least used to be) places where officials like coroners are also elected. How can that possibly be?!!?? I used to think it was a joke that dog-catchers were elected in many places in the US. Now I realise that that’s an extreme expression of nepotism/ favouritism in political alliances rather than simply a stupid way to employ people who ought to be selected on merit.
