Alabama Senate Candidate Roy Moore Wants To Criminalize Gay Sex, Abortion

Alabama Senate Candidate Roy Moore Wants To Criminalize Gay Sex, Abortion November 25, 2019

U.S. Senate candidate and former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore says he wants to criminalize gay sex and abortion, just like they did in the good old days.

Moore, who has announced he is running for the U.S. Senate again, says he wants to take the U.S. back in time when gay sex and abortion were illegal.

Speaking to the Huntsville Republican Men’s Group earlier this week, Moore said:

We have got to go back to what we did back in the sixties and seventies back to a moral basis. We did not have a national healthcare system. You know when Obama passed this thing rising all our costs and business started going down the tube everybody said it was going to be repealed. You never hear anybody in Congress talk about it now. Our indebtedness was $22 trillion. Back in the sixties and seventies it was much lower. It was a sixth of that. Abortion was not legal when I went to Vietnam. It was passed later. It was OK’d later. We had abortion laws in our country and our state. We did not have same sex marriage. We did not have transgender rights. Sodomy was illegal. These things were just not around when my classmates and I went to West Point and Vietnam.

Moore continued, complaining about “atheists and secular humanists” taking away the Pledge of Allegiance:

We had the Pledge of Allegiance. We said the Pledge of Allegiance. We had morning devotionals. I know most of you in here over the age of sixty probably remember days like that. We are continually under attack from atheists and secular humanists who want to take those laws from us.

And Moore is also angry that “gender identity” is being taught in schools:

We have drag queens teaching kindergarten children in this state and this community….in Huntsville in Mobile they taught kids and they dress them up in drag. Where does this come from? Gender identity is being taught in California to young kids and parents have no choice but to let their kids be taught that.

Many Alabama Republicans continue to support Moore despite the fact that in November 2017, during a Senate special election in Alabama, nine different women came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct, child molestation, and pedophilia against Moore.

According to multiple reports the Alabama politician sexually abused a 14-year-old-girl and pursued many other teenage girls while in his early 30’s.

The fact is, Roy Moore is a dangerous religious extremist and a moral monster not qualified to hold any public office.

For example, Moore rejects science in favor of religious superstition, and rejects the indisputable fact that biological evolution is true. Previously  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.

Moore, like Trump, is also a white nationalist and a birther who repeatedly questioned Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president.

In addition, Moore believes the Supreme Court decision allowing gay marriage is worse than the decision upholding slavery.  

In short, Moore is 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.

Indeed, the GOP senate hopeful believes that God punishes the U.S. for immoral behavior, and “God’s law” can invalidate federal court decisions.

Previously Moore declared:

God is the only source of our law, liberty and government.

Bottom line: Roy Moore, a dangerous Christian extremist who sexually abused a 14-year-old-girl, and pursued sexual relationships with other underage girls while serving as a district attorney, wants to criminalize gay sex and abortion.
