Alabama Senate candidate, suspended Judge, and known theocrat Roy Moore is at it again. He was in an interview on Tuesday and he pulled out a copy of Joseph Story’s 1833 book, Commentaries on the Constitution.
He said this with his eyes lit up:
“The answer is right here. It was the general, if not the universal, sentiment in America that Christianity ought to be favored by the State.”
Moore said during the interview:
“You have to understand what religion is — the duties you owe to the creator.”
“And then it starts there first. You have to understand it was the duty of the government under the First Amendment, according to Joseph Story who was there for 37 years and wrote the stories on the Constitution.”
“It was the duty to foster religion and foster Christianity. He said at the time of the adoption of the Constitution that ‘it was the general, if not the universal, sentiment in America that Christianity ought to be favored by the State so far as was not incompatible with the private rights of conscience.'”
Republican voters will be choosing their candidate in a Tuesday runoff election. The election is to replace Jeff Sessions who left the Senate seat to be the Attorney General.
Moore faces incumbent Senator Luther Strange, who has the backing of the Republican party and President Donald Trump.
His latest theories include saying that parts of the country are under Sharia law. He also waved a gun around in front of a crowd at a campaign speech.
