Alabama’s Senate candidate, Roy Moore, said that Islam is a “false” religion. He also doubled down on the same-sex marriage beliefs that got him booted from the Chief Justice bench.
He made the comments Monday at a meeting of the North Jefferson Republicans club at Jim N’ Nick’s Barbeque. In response to a question from a resident, Moore said that Islam doesn’t align with American values.
“False religions like Islam, who teach that, ‘you must worship this way,’ are completely opposite with what our First Amendment stands for.”
He maintained that his actions after the Supreme Court ruling did not violate judicial ethics. He also falsely maintained that the Supreme Court ruling did not make same-sex marriage legal across the land.
This asshole can’t follow the law, how can we trust him to write them?
This is also the same guy that tried and failed to have a Ten Commandments Monument at the Alabama court house.
CAIR-Alabama, a Muslim civil liberties organization, Executive Director Khaula Hadeed said in a statement:
“Statements that espouse Islamophobia and cast out fellow Alabamians, implying that they do not have the same rights under the law, are unAmerican. We invite Judge Roy Moore to visit a mosque, meet with Alabamian Muslims, and learn about their Islamic faith and about the Muslim constituents he intends to serve as a representative. As a candidate for Senate, this is perhaps the best time for him to do so.”
Roy Moore is an asshole.
