Roy Moore’s Latest Campaign Ad for Senate Reminds Alabama Voters He “Fears God”

By Hemant Mehta

Roy Moore, the disgraced Alabama Supreme Court justice who once installed a Ten Commandments monument into the courthouse (without permission, in the middle of the night) and then got suspended (again) for telling judges to ignore the marriage equality ruling, is currently running for the U.S. Senate in an upcoming special election.

He hopes to defeat Republican Sen. Luther Strange in the GOP primary because Strange is apparently too liberal for the state. How dare he pay lip service to the Constitution when the Bible is the only text that matters?

There’s a reason Moore’s called the “Ayatollah of Alabama.”

Moore’s new campaign ad goes all in on Trumpian rhetoric, talking about “draining the swamp,” attacking Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for failing to strip health care from millions of Americans, and (of course) telling everyone he “fears God.” As if that’s a qualification anyone should take seriously.

  1. Why would God be so insistent that we fear him? Strikes me the only people I know of in life whom demand fear are those that’s position is not very secure. The bible reads this way as well he is constantly worried about Baal et al., he can be defeated by iron chariots and really comes across as the stereotype of a pissy and insecure queen – just read his rant at Job with that image in your head

  2. It’s funny, someone who truly believes in a god and truly fears him (and the prospect of infinite torment in the afterlife etc) would surely be OCD about following all the rules, living a blameless life & would surely not be able to function outside of a monastery or the like – certainly not run for office in the swamp of US politics.

  3. @OP – FIGHTS FOR WHAT IS RIGHT
    FEARS GOD
    STANDS FOR THE CONSTITUTION.

    Or more accurately:-

    Fights for what is EXTREME right!
    Is a puppet of his god-delusion,
    Lies about standing for the constitution,
    because his god-delusion stands for
    oxymoronic mental compartmentalism, and deception!

  4. Latest from Washington Post

    Undisclosed deal paid Roy Moore $180,000 a year for charity work

    The Senate candidate from Alabama once stated he did not take a “regular salary” from the charity he founded. But documents show he collected more than $1 million, compensation that far surpassed what the group disclosed in its public tax filings.
