Theocracy Alert: Roy Moore wins GOP Senate primary, wants to make gay sex illegal and turn the U.S. into a Christian theocracy.
Roy Moore is a conservative Christian’s wet dream, a dangerous religious extremist who places his Christian faith above the U.S. Constitution, and believes that “God is the only source of our law, liberty and government.”
In fact, Moore was removed not once, but twice, from his position as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court for his refusal to obey the law because it conflicted with his extreme Christianity. Once because he refused to obey a federal order to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the state supreme court, and another time for refusing to obey the Supreme Court decision affirming marriage equality.
Moore believes that God punishes the U.S. for immoral behavior, and “God’s law” can invalidate federal court decisions.
Earlier this month Moore declared:
“God is the only source of our law, liberty and government.”
Last month Moore told Vox that the U.S. Constitution was written to “foster religion and foster Christianity.”
Moore rejects science in favor of religious superstition, and rejects the indisputable fact that biological evolution is true. Recently Moore explained his rejection of science to the Washington Post, claiming:
There’s no such thing as evolution… That we came from a snake? No I don’t believe that.
If Moore’s despicable record of religious bigotry and ignorance was not obnoxious enough, the Senate hopeful from Alabama also writes deplorable poetry promoting his radical Christian extremism. For example:
But I’m glad they’re not here with us to see the mess we’re in
How we’ve given up our righteousness for a life of indulgent sin.
For when abortion is no longer called murder, when sodomy is deemed a right,
then good is now called evil and darkness is now called light…
Our children are told they can’t pray in school and they teach them evolution.
Why can’t they see the fear of God is the only true solution?
Bottom line: Alabama, a very red state, is about to elect a very dangerous religious extremist to the U.S. Senate, a religious extremist who wants to turn the U.S. into a Christian theocracy.
