Judge Roy Moore on Respecting Rights: We Can’t Be Fair

Here come a couple of interesting tidbits which show the true colors of Roy “Ten Commandments” Moore. This one came (props) from the Montgomery Advertiser:

Moore fielded questions from four members of the audience and the media on topics such as rule of law, evolution in the classroom and the Ten Commandments monument.

Sarah Wires of Birmingham, secretary of the Libertarian Party of Alabama, asked if Moore thought that the stand that the religious right wing movement has taken is the reason there is such tension over religion when it comes to lawmaking.

“I really don’t understand what you’re saying,” Moore said. When Wires attempted to further explain her question, Moore said he thinks the problem is with special interest groups.

One would have to be the absolute nuttiest in a whole flock of wingnuts to not understand that there is controversy about the teaching of evolution in the classroom and other related matters. Even the grand poobah of nutty moonbat wingnuts certainly has to understand there has been plenty of controversy over the placement of the Ten Commandments monument, especially since he was at the heart of it. Moore did get one thing right. This is about special interests — his own.

Loretta Nall attended, blogged, and video taped (mirrored version) the same event:

Before his speech one of the reporters asked Roy Moore a question about fairness to people of different faiths and beliefs.

In case you had trouble with the video, I’ll skip to the significant part:

Moore: Well, let me [tell you?]. I was asked one of the questions by one of these lovely ladies sitting up here and it was a good question. It was a very good question. People [wanna?] say, “Well, we got to be fair”. Well, guess what? We can’t be fair. It was a question of how can we be fair? Again, we’re not.

Even believers in the Ten Commandments don’t wish to be forced to worship graven images or to grovel at the feet of American Taliban.
