Roy Moore’s Religious Bigotry

Roy Moore’s Religious Bigotry September 30, 2011

Wingnut extraordinaire Judge Roy Moore may be even more crazy than I originally thought. From the ReligionLaw listserv comes this story from Prof. Paul Finkelman:

When I was the main expert in the Ten Commandments monument case in Alabama (Glassroth v. Moore), Chief Justice Roy Moore said that the Ten Commandments monument could not offend any religion because all religions believe in the Ten Commandments. When asked about Hindus or Buddhists he said “they are not real religions so they are not protected by the First Amendment.”

The man who said that was actually elected Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court.
