Karma Curmudgeon: Benevolent Misanthrope: Oh - and this little gem -

He later said that "you can't be happy unless you follow God's law, and if you follow God's law, you can't help but be happy."

Wonderful. As if the asshattery weren't enough, he has to toss in an earworm to boot.

d23: Lost Thought 00: This is a major reason why Alabama is always in a race to the bottom to be the worst state in the nation

Time for a new marketing slogan:

Alabama: Proud To Make Indiana Look Progressive By Comparison.


Alabama: Trying to out Arizona Mississippi.

mediablitz: More proof Christians are persecuted in this nation.


They've got it worse than the Jews in the Holocaust.  The Jews only had to hide themselves or be put in camps and killed; the good Christians of the US are forced to abstain from school led prayer, forced to endure people of other faiths not wishing them Merry Christmas, and they aren't even allowed to persecute the homosexuals.

I read this in the Hyper-chicken's voice:  "Now," he continued, "if technology's supposed to increase our knowledge, how did we become so stupid?"


After centuries of chicken farking, the GOP finally managed to reproduce with one.

d23: Where the preamble declares, that coercion is a departure from the plan of the holy author of our religion, an amendment was proposed by inserting "Jesus Christ," so that it would read "A departure from the plan of Jesus Christ, the holy author of our religion;" the insertion was rejected by the great majority, in proof that they meant to comprehend, within the mantle of its protection, the Jew and the Gentile, the Christian and Mohammedan, the Hindoo and Infidel of every denomination.

Bathia_Mapes: Is he even aware of why the Pilgrims left England in the first place?


I'm guessing he thinks (as I was taught at my Baptist school) it's because god called them to, because they were being persecuted for their true faith, as Christians still are today.

I can honestly say, the most miserable people I've ever known were religious fundamentalists who were scrupulous about following their god's law.


I'm guessing there was quite a few crying jags in Rev. Ted Haggard's house, once the post-orgasmic bliss of snorting meth out of the crack of a rentboy's ass wore off.

Benevolent Misanthrope: Magorn: Benevolent Misanthrope: Chief Justice Moore later defined "life" via Blackstone's Law - a book that American lawyers have "sadly forgotten" - as beginning when "the baby kicks." "Today," he said, "our courts say it's not alive 'til the head comes out."

"Now," he continued, "if technology's supposed to increase our knowledge, how did we become so stupid?" Discussing Thomas Jefferson's use of "life" in the Declaration of Independence, he said that "when [Jefferson] put 'life' in there, it was in the womb - we know it begins at conception. Why aren't we going the right way instead of the wrong way?"

So, which is it?  At conception, or when the baby kicks?  And how do you feel about science knowing that babies move before they kick - is this a gray area for you?  Some babies kick earlier than others - are you going to write a law that gives a time frame, or rely on the mother to accurately report the kicking?

In other words, You're an idiot.

So in other words he supports  Roe v.Wade. which held that during the first trimester,  no restrictions could be placed on abortions, and it was only until the second trimester (which is roughly when Blacktstone's "quickening" occurs) that the state could assert an interest in the life of the potential child

Well, that's the question.  On the one hand he says life begins at the quickening.  But then goes on to say it begins at conception.  I'm pretty sure he has no idea that these are different, though, so vote Republican.


Give Ray Moore Cedit for knowing anything is a stretch .  It really is a travesty that he's not only a judge but the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Alabama.....that's almost unbelievable to me.

And on the list of things he knows jack shiat about add this:
"They didn't bring the Koran over on the pilgrim ship," he continued. "Let's get real, let's go back and learn our history. Let's stop playing games."

well, perhaps not on the   Mayflower itself but that was hardly the first group of colonists in America, and the Koran actually was a pretty common book in colonial times.  This one belonged to someone Ray Moore may recognize named Thomas Jefferson what with him  being a Founding Father and all:
