Dotard's Alabama buddy does it again

Roy Moore: Gay marriage ruling ‘even worse’ than 1857 pro-slavery decision


Republican Alabama Senate nominee Roy Moore once argued that the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize gay marriage was “even worse” than its ruling in the 19th century Dred Scott case, which found that African-Americans were not citizens, and therefore property.

“Yes, sir. I was simply pointing out that in 1857 the United States Supreme Court did rule that black people were property. And of course that contradicted the Constitution and it took a civil war to overturn it,” the former Alabama Supreme Court chief justice told the “Here I Stand” podcast last November.

“But this ruling in Obergefell is even worse, in a sense, because it forces not only people to recognize marriage other than the institution ordained of God and recognized by nearly every state in the union, it says that you now must do away with the definition of marriage and make it between two persons of the same gender or leading on, as one of the dissenting justices said, to polygamy, to multi ... partner marriages.”

The podcast was produced by the Christian Emergency League, which describes itself as a group of pastors and theologians.
And on it goes.

Read an article this morning. In it they mentioned that the people in Alabama were so disgusted by the choice between Strange and Moore that LESS than 20% of eligible REPUBLICAN voters turned out.

If the Dems can get even slightly mobilized and get voters to turn out, they could win.

I live in Tennessee now, but I grew up in south Alabama. The fact that a Democrat has even a snow ball's chance in hell is utterly astounding, and a serious statement on how poor a choice Moore really is. When 80 plus percent of voters stayed home ?? Moore didn't really "win", he just didn't lose. Pretty pitiful.

I suspect we'll see similar scenarios play out across the nation as Bannon tries to drag the dead corpse of the GOP even further to the right. Next year is definitely going to be interesting.

Sounds like the 2016 presidential election.
