Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore has reached Level: Hellfire in his grief process following the marriage equality ruling by the Supreme Court. The very conservative politician, who is best known for wanting to keep a monument to the Ten Commandments on public grounds, was understandably upset by the ruling, and now he’s gone apoplectic over it, predicting an actual war, like with guns and battles and things, in the United States of America over the persecution of Christians.
Moore appeared in an interview posted by anti-abortion activist Randall Terry, who seems to egg Moore on in trying to admit that the ruling might merit actual violent, revolutionary resistance because if Americans went to war with Britain over taxes, then Christians won’t be forced to live in a country that, to paraphrase Terry, is being turned into “Sodom and Gomorrah.” Watch below:
It’s a lot of hellfire and brimstone, which is to be expected from these extreme types, but they go into some really apocalyptic territory in their conversation that includes but goes beyond just asking the nation’s governors to defy the ruling. No, Moore and Terry think that the country will be torn apart by a war over marriage equality because now Christians are being forced to “accept evil.”
You’d almost think that it somehow actually affects them personally.
