Roy 'Ten Commandments' Moore on morality and homosexuality
The disgraced former Alabama Chief Justice and Alabama gubernatorial candidate Roy Moore, notorious for wanting to install a gigantic slab of the Ten Commandments at the state courthouse, is weighing in on General Pace’s inappropriate and boneheaded comment about homosexuality and service in the military. (WND):
As chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, I encountered the same virulent opposition in 2002 when I wrote in a Supreme Court judicial opinion that “[h]omosexual conduct by its very nature is immoral, and its consequences are inherently destructive to the natural order of society.” The opinion concerned the custody of three children whose mother sought to regain custody from the father after she had willingly relinquished custody when she began a homosexual relationship. In making my observations about homosexuality, I merely repeated what statutes, judges and legal commentators had said about homosexual behavior for centuries. I followed the law in Alabama, and for doing so I was excoriated in the press as “hateful,” “prejudiced,” and likened to the Taliban in Afghanistan.
…Samuel Adams, the father of the American Revolution, once said that “no people will tamely surrender their liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and virtue is preserved. On the contrary, when people are universally ignorant, and debauched in their manners, they will sink under their own weight without the aid of foreign invaders.” So it is that while brave men like Gen. Pace seek to defend our country from without, we are being destroyed from within by those who want no part of virtue or morality. For the sake of our nation’s survival, it is time to voice our strongest opposition to homosexual conduct because morality still matters, not only in the military, but also in society at large.
When Roy was on the bench, he railed on about homosexuality at length, stating that it was “abhorrent, immoral, detestable, a crime against nature,” and that gay sex is “an act so heinous that it defies one’s ability to describe it,” an “inherent evil” that “should never be tolerated.” Moore also wrote that his solution to all of this was to wield a biblical “power of the sword” to root out the evil.
