Alabama Republican Senate Candidate Roy Moore co-authored a study course, published in 2011 and recently obtained by ThinkProgress, that instructs students that women should not be permitted to run for elected office. If women do run for office, the course argues, people have a moral obligation not to vote for them. The course is also critical of the women’s suffrage movement, which in 1920 secured some American women the right to vote.

The course, called “Law and Government: An Introductory Study Course,” includes 28 hours of audio and visual lectures given by Moore and others, as well as a study guide.

The course is available for purchase on Amazon, where “Chief Justice Roy Moore” is listed as a co-author alongside Doug Phillips, Dr. Joseph C. Morecraft, and Dr. Paul Jehle.

Lots of creepy and corrupt stuff about Roy Moore is coming to light. More and more, all the time. The very creepy pedophila was just the tip of the iceberg. It will be very interesting to see if the voters in Alabama, after seeing all this, are still bat-shit crazy and morally degenerate enough to vote him into office.

Thanks for posting the info in the OP. That anti-democratic, hyper-patriarchal, mysoginistic, semi-fascist, (pseudo-)"Christian" Supremacist, Male Supremacist, supposedly "educational" bullshit he created is just one more reflection of his bigoted, boarderline insane character.

That crap got published in 2011, and I was curious if he produced those videos while serving as Chief Justice, so I wanted to see just which periods of time Moore was serving as Chief Justice in Alabama, so I looked at his Wikipedia entry and noticed something very, very interesting in the corruption department....one has to wonder if some rightwing wacko billionaire, has been funneling money to his bogus foundation......here's a few short excerpts....perhaps it will hit the mainstream media in a bigger way soon....

Moore is considered an advocate of far-right politics.[9][10][11] He attracted significant national attention and controversy over his strongly anti-homosexual and anti-Muslim views, his belief that Christianity should order public policy,[12][13] and his past ties to neo-Confederates and white nationalist groups.[14][15][16][17][18] Moore was a leading voice in the birther movement, which promoted the debunked conspiracy theory that former President Barack Obama was not born in the United States.[19][20] He is also the founder and president of the Foundation for Moral Law, a non-profit legal organization from which he collected more than $1 million over five years, more than the revenue the organization disclosed on its tax filings.[21]
***

The Foundation for Moral Law
Moore founded the nonprofit Christian legal organization Foundation for Moral Law in 2002.[130] Moore's wife, Kayla, is the president of the Foundation for Moral Law.[131] In 2005, Moore's Foundation for Moral Law accepted a $1,000 contribution from a neo-Nazi organization founded by Willis Carto, a prominent Holocaust denier. The donation attracted attention during Moore's 2017 campaign for a Senate seat.[132][133][134]

Undisclosed salary payments
Moore publicly said that he did not draw a "regular salary" from the organization. In October 2017, however, The Washington Post reported that Moore had arranged an annual salary of $180,000 for himself from the foundation.[21] From 2007 to 2012, he collected more than $1 million, a number that far surpasses what the nonprofit declared in its public tax filings.[21] Furthermore, The Washington Post reported that Moore arranged the salary and that, in 2012 when the charity could not pay his full salary, Moore received a note promising that he would get the salary in back pay or a stake in the assets of the foundation.[21] The foundation also paid for Moore's health-care benefits, travel expenses, and bodyguard, and the foundation's website has regularly promoted Moore's speaking arrangements and book.[21] Furthermore, the foundation employed at least two of Moore's children and Moore's wife. She was paid $65,000 annually after he again took his seat on the Alabama Supreme Court.[21] The Washington Post also noted that there was considerable overlap between the charity and Moore's political activities, with previous top officials of the charity leading Moore's 2017 Senate campaign and with the charity using the same fundraising firm as Moore's campaigns.[21]

The foundation's former chair, Alabama Circuit Court Judge John Bentley, denied that the board did anything wrong intentionally, but was unable to explain shortcomings in tax filings and audits. He admitted that the board failed to provide sufficient oversight and that he personally had been less involved than his position required. He acknowledged the foundation was effectively run entirely by Moore and his family.[21]

The IRS warned the foundation about discrepancies in its tax filings in 2013, saying that the issues "could jeopardize your exempt status".[21] A number of charity and tax law experts have said that the foundation's activities "raised questions about compliance with IRS rules, including prohibitions on the use of a charity for the private benefit or enrichment of an individual".[21] Additional reporting by The Washington Post that October found that the $498,000 that Moore was guaranteed in back pay was not declared to the IRS; tax experts say that it should have been and that Moore would have had to pay more than $100,000 in federal tax.[135]

Read the Amazon.com summary on it. We don't need no stinkin' separation of church and state.

The Amazon entry doesn't accept C&P, it must be an image.

Then why do you support government interference in Churches if you believe in separation.


(Separation is a TWO WAY street)

Latest Example of government interference is a CA Town preventing the Church to do its mission of feeding the poor.

MALIBU, Calif. -- A Malibu church that has helped the homeless for years has been asked to stop feeding people who are down on their luck.

CBS Los Angeles spoke to the people at the United Methodist Church about the request.

Workers at the church say they are able to serve as many as 100 people. They've been serving meals on Wednesdays since 2014.

But now, the food service will come to an end after Thanksgiving at the city's request.

"It's a safe place," said Michah Johnson, who is homeless. "And everyone is welcome. And the food is really good. It's home-cooked. And there's TLC involved."

"The church is very helpful," he added. "They keep my spirits up. They keep me accountable. When you're homeless, it's very easy to slip off and become jaded."

The church says the city sent an email asking members to attend a meeting on Monday, where they were asked to stop feeding the homeless.

"Very succinctly," said Dawn Randall, who works with the United Methodist Church. "They claimed we are increasing homelessness."

"I think many of them eat out of dumpsters and trash cans when they aren't eating with us," said Kay Gabbard, who also works with the United Methodist Church. "We can't pretend like (homelessness) doesn't exist in our backyard. We can't pretend that it only exists outside Malibu."

CBS Los Angeles reached out to Malibu's mayor for a comment. They have yet to hear back.
