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.
