Alabama Justice Roy Moore: SCOTUS Gay Marriage Ruling Could ‘Destroy The Country’
It takes to much time and space to present every ridiculous comment from conservatives who are fearful about the upcoming Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage. Roy Moore’s reaction to something that hasn’t happened yet is significant in that he is the Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court.
…Moore is no stranger to controversy, having previously tried defying the orders of federal courts while urging other state governments to do the same. On Tuesday, Moore gave aninterview for CNS News, where he had some explosive words on the Supreme Court’s decision to hear the same-sex marriage case,Obergefell V. Hodges. “They’re toying with something that’s like dynamite and will destroy our country,” he said.
Moore said a favorable ruling would mean homosexuality’s “force acceptance” amongst Americans by requiring people to provide goods and services for wedding ceremonies. “What the Supreme Court is about to do, if they do it, is not redefine marriage but destroy the institution of marriage,” Moore said. Moore continued to say that he does not think that all LGBT advocates are hell-bent on seeing the country destroyed, but insisted that “there’s a push for it.”
