Roy Moore: Gay Marriage ‘Will Destroy Our Country’

Roy Moore: Gay Marriage ‘Will Destroy Our Country’ June 4, 2015

Theocratic Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore is offering his usual hysteria in an interview with CNS News, arguing that federal courts have no jurisdiction at all over what happens in Alabama and that gay marriage literally “will destroy out country.”

The chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, Roy Moore, said he believes that if the U.S. Supreme Court rules in June that homosexual marriage is a Constitutional right, it “will destroy our country,” and added that “there are people who would like to see this country destroyed.”

“What [the court is] doing is they’re toying with something that’s like dynamite and will destroy our country,” Justice Roy Moore told in an exclusive interview last week during the Family Research Council’s annual pastor’s retreat in Washington, D.C…

“What the Supreme Court is about to do, if they do it, is not redefine marriage but destroy the institution of marriage,” Moore said, citing the high court’s 1885 decision in Murphy v. Ramsey, where the opinion stated that marriage is the union of one man and one woman.

Really, Roy? Is your marriage going to be destroyed? Are you going to stop loving your wife and divorce her? Is anyone going to do that? If not, how the hell is this going to “destroy marriage” without having any effect at all on any actual marriages? This is beyond being merely stupid.

“I think there’s an attempt to destroy the institution of marriage and I think it will cause, literally cause the destruction of our country or lead to the destruction of our country over the long run,” Moore said. “And I think there are people who would like to see this country destroyed.”

Yes, the entire country will be destroyed. So rational this man is.

In his own state of Alabama, the state Supreme Court is not abiding by a federal district court’s ruling that banning homosexual marriage in unconstitutional. The state Supreme Court made its decision without a vote by Moore, who recused himself from the case.

“The Alabama Supreme Court is not bound by any order of the federal district court,” Moore said. “Just like they’re not bound by any order we issue.”

Yeah, you know who else made that same argument? George Wallace. He was full of shit. So is Roy Moore.
