“They didn’t bring the Koran over on the pilgrim ship, the Mayflower” Chief Justice Roy Moore announced at the Pastor for Life Luncheon, an event hosted in January by Pro-Life Mississippi. In a video obtained and released by Raw Story last Friday, Moore told his audience that religion in the First Amendment only applied to the God in the Bible.
“Let’s get real. Let’s learn our history. Let’s stop playing games,” said Moore at the Jackson, Miss. event.
“Everybody, to include the U.S. Supreme Court, has been deceived as to one little word in the First Amendment called ‘religion.’ They can’t define it,” the state’s chief justice said. “They can’t define it the way Mason, Madison and even the United State Supreme Court defined it, ‘the duties we owe to the creator and the manner of discharging it.’ They don’t want to do that, because that acknowledges a creator god.”
I would just like to say---------I haven’t listened to the whole speech on RAW STORY and am planning on doing so first thing------so it is possible the good Judge may have had his comments taken completely out of context by biased, “interested” parties-------and if so, that is outrageous…
But IF these words and others quoted in the article accurately reflect the judge’s words, then I totally disagree and am shocked the man would express these views.
As it is--------comments are welcome.
