As we await the Supreme Court’s expected ruling on national marriage equality, a prominent conservative judge has churned out hatred-fueled nonsense. (In other news, water is wet!)
Here’s the lowdown:
Alabama's Chief Justice Roy Moore has something to tell us, and it’s going to be hard to hear. Of particular concern to Moore, currently, is the fact that the U. S. Supreme Court could very well make marriage equality the law of the land this month. Moore has already called for Ruth Bader Ginsburg's head because he thinks she's too friendly with the queers. And he's called for out and out rebellion if the Supreme Court doesn't tell gays and lesbians to crawl in a hole and die.
In an interview with CNS News on May 29, Moore foretold the looming destruction of America, because gays:
“What [SCOTUS is] doing is they're toying with something that's like dynamite and will destroy our country. I think there's an attempt to destroy the institution of marriage, and I think it will cause, literally cause, the destruction of our country or lead to the destruction of our country over the long run.”
Note the repeated use of the words “destroy” and “destruction” in his statement. In other words, same-sex couples who have been waiting years for the kind of legal recognition that Moore can take for granted are enemies out to "literally cause the destruction of our country."
When he tried to backpedal on his word choice, he didn’t get very far:
"I'm not saying that everyone who's homosexual wants to see the country destroyed. I'm not saying that. I'm saying there's a push for it," Moore clarified.
Got that, people? Not all of us queers are out to destroy the country, but some of us just can't wait!
