AL GOP Leader Supports Moore, Warns of God’s Wrath

In case you get the idea that Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore’s views are outside the mainstream of the Republican party, Alabama Republican party chairman Bill Armistead has written on the official state GOP website that he supports Moore — and that God will destroy us if we let gay people get married.

One of the basic truths that was revealed in the oldest of Scriptures is found in Genesis 1:27 where God created a man – Adam – and a woman – Eve. “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them”. Scripture then teaches that “a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh” (Genesis 2:24). This is God’s word. This is God’s truth.

So, how is it that God’s truth can be turned on its head as the debate now rages in Alabama regarding the meaning of marriage? The answer is that we, as a society, have become our own god. We have made God in our image. But, God will not be mocked. The State of Alabama and the United States of America will reap God’s wrath if we embrace and condone things that are abhorrent to God, such as redefining marriage as anything other than a union between one man and one woman.

I know, right? I mean, we’ve actually been letting people worship other gods in this country, a flagrant violation of the very first commandment. And we let people work on the sabbath. And make graven images. And commit adultery. In fact, we allow literally hundreds of things that the Bible says God doesn’t like. Yet somehow he has not destroyed us yet. I’m beginning to suspect that this big mean God of theirs doesn’t actually exist.

Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, a staunch defender of Alabama’s Constitution, has directed the state’s Probate Judges to abide by our Constitution which prohibits the issuance of marriage license to same-sex couples. Moore also has also released a letter to Governor Bentley saying he intends to continue to recognize the state’s constitutional ban on same-sex marriage and urges the governor to do the same.

Both Chief Justice Moore and Gov. Bentley have voiced strong opposition against same-sex marriage, but their response to the events in Alabama could not be more different. Moore believes that the state constitution prevails in this fight and that our ban on same-sex marriage stands. And while Moore has directed the Probate Judges to deny marriage license to same-sex couples, Bentley has stated that Probate Judges should let their conscience be their guide in issuing marriage license.

Bentley’s statements indicate he is more concerned with how the state might be perceived if we defend our constitution. Bentley said, “I think it’s important for the people across the country to realize that the governor of Alabama today is not the governor of Alabama fifty years ago.”

Yeah, that Roy Moore is far more consistent in defending bronze age values.

    Pot, meet kettle.

    Perhaps, but I think Bentley is more concerned with how Bentley might be perceived.

    They are right. If gay marriage happens in Alabama, Then god will cause Alabama to have poor education, high rates of teen pregnancy, poor health care….

    Uh, because this is a question of human law … the Constitution … not one for ecclesiastical courts?

    I thought that the Republicans were soft-pedaling George Wallace and his brave stand at the schoolhouse door

    Interesting that the twit uses Gen 1:27 with 2:24 instead of 2:22, which clearly implies that the old God Man cloned what must have been a genetically male being (called ‘Evan’ or ‘Steve’ pro tem?) and then transgendered him …um… it …um… her to make a significant other for Adam. And note that nowhere does it say that they were married.

    He probably wouldn’t be able to find many more than 100 million Americans who agree with him.

    … the oldest of Scriptures …

    Uh, that would probably be the Book of Job, Chairman Armistead – though actually appearing to know anything about the history of your sacred book would likely cause you to reap (the majority of) Alabamans’ wrath…

  • Pierce R. Butler

    Oh, and Bill – according to the Book of Job, wives and children are replaceable commodities much like other livestock. Be sure and tell all the voters of your state about that!

    When Braun, Norelco, Schick and Gilette sales are banned in Alabama, I’ll start to take him seriously.

    Say, remember that time that Oregon legalized same sex marriage, and then was immediately wiped off the map by a massive volcanic eruption?

    Me neither.

    Don’t worry, Ed. They’re working on that as we speak. Bryan Fischer is all over that.

    Bill Armistead:

    So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

    […] We have made God in our image [Armistead frames this as a bad thing].

    I don’t think we’re reading Mr. Armistead deeply enough. His objection to gay marriage is only a shallow concern and not his deeper objection.

    Ya see if we men are made in God’s image, then our making God in the image of man must be perfectly A-OK. The problem revealed here is when women do the same. Mr. Armistead’s on a covert mission to discriminate against females, which the Bible clearly commands he do in other passages. [/snark]

    God will destroy us if we let gay people get married.

    And if gay people get married and God doesn’t destroy us…What then sherlock?

  • theguy

    When people say we should fear God’s wrath, they don’t consider that in truth God would be evil for destroying people for legalizing gay marriage. This attitude (to me) screams “might makes right.”

    I suspect it’s just a proxy for what they would do if they could. If Armistead or ShitMoore had a big red button they could press to destroy Alabama (or America) they’d feel justified in doing so to punish us for legalizing gay marriage.
