Roy Moore: Evolution and Gay Marriage Incompatible with the Constitution

Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice-elect Roy Moore appeared onCity On A Hill Radio to lash out at marriage equality and the theory of evolution, warning that they undermine the Constitution. Moore, who has argued that same-sex marriage leads to divine punishment and will “destroy this country,” maintained that the Founding Fathers “would be up in arms” over President Obama’s endorsement of marriage equality as it will “destroy the very foundation” of America.

What we’re doing in this country is—if Washington and Jefferson and Madison, name one, if they were alive today would be up in arms. None of them, federalists or antifederalists, never believed that it would come to this. Those that were for big government like Hamilton, Washington, Adams would never have believed that our courts would be doing what they’re doing today, that people would be trying to change the definition of marriage. We don’t take a moment just to stop and clear our eyes and our ears and think: what is happening when a President of the United States can get up and say we need to redefine marriage? You know, when they do that they are attempting to destroy the very foundation on which this country was built.

Moore also denied the theory of evolution and said it was warping people’s understanding of the Constitution by covering up its Biblical precepts. “Evolution has so distorted our way of thinking,” Moore said, “we know we were created but they say we evolved from whatever, something out of the ocean, you’ve got to understand that evolution affects your mental processes.” He explained that evolution makes people think that they are “smarter” than their predecessors while the Constitution shows that “human nature doesn’t change.”

Barbara Moore: Judge Moore I want to ask you, as you read the United States Constitution you can see that biblical concepts and precepts are within that Constitution, everything from separation of powers because of the sinful nature of man, and I would think that any Bible believing Christian would feel that when they look at our United States Constitution, wouldn’t you say?

Roy Moore: I think they don’t and I think there’s a reason they don’t and I think the reason like you see it maybe because you’ve studied a little bit but I think it’s not evident to those who have lost the knowledge of God. What I mean to say by that is you know we started by teaching history at the beginning of the program and it’s like going to football games and seeing who wins and who loses and going to football games and forgetting the rules. If you know the rules it makes the game more interesting because you know there is some way they get to the end of the game and win or lose and you got to go by the rules. We’re not going by the rules because we don’t think the rules matter anymore.

Evolution has so distorted our way of thinking. It’s not just about where we came from. Of course, we know we were created but they say we evolved from whatever, something out of the ocean, you’ve got to understand that evolution affects your mental processes. When you think you have evolved then you think you’re better than those who have gone before you. If you’re better than those who have gone before you then you won’t make the same mistakes, you won’t think the same way, you know better, you’re smarter. The point is, human nature doesn’t change and human nature is what the Constitution sought to restrain.

Quoting LauraKW:

 Supreme Court Chief Justice-elect of Alabama, you are a dumb fuck.

And so are the people who re-elected him here. He didnt win by a big margin either, if I remember correctly. The guy running against him was a new comer, too.

I was really hoping that people had smartened up about him after he was removed from the bench for not removing the 10 commandments from his court room years ago. I think he even said in his campaigning that he had learned from that. Apparently not.

I hate living here and cant wait for an opportunity to move.

He obviously didn't get any kind of an education on what the hell evolution by natural selection is. 

I can understand and excuse being under-educated. I cannot excuse being a completely purposely ignorant asshole. 

Suck it and pick up a book someday, Roy. Book learnin' ain't the devil, boy!

I always thought the theory of evolution discouraged people from believing there were civilized people and savages because evolution can point to brain size and say we haven't had any exceptional changes in a few dozen millennia.
The civilized people trying subdue savages and bring mother nature to heel have been almost exclusively white Christians in this hemisphere. But some people need to hate on science because the alternative (looking at what they could do for a better world) is enough to bring on panic attacks. It's much easier to hate the guy buying cafe curtains than wonder why they themselves are impotent in face of all the real troubles we face as a country and individuals. God gets the credit while the gays and single moms get the blame. No justice
