Rabbi: Roy Moore Just Sat There While I Got Bullied Over a Christian Monument

By Hemant Mehta

Every day now seems to bring new stories about how Roy Moore allegedly hit on teenage girls (in the creepiest possible ways) and assaulted some while in his early 30s. Those stories should be front and center on the list of why Moore has no business being in the U.S. Senate.

But it’s not like he was qualified before these allegations began coming out. Moore was someone who defied the rule of law multiple times — as the highest ranking judge in the state of Alabama — and someone whose primary goal, it seemed, was to use his public positions to promote his theology. Spreading fundamentalist Christianity meant far more than upholding the rule of law or being a decent human being.

Moore first burst onto the national scene in 2001 when he installed an illegal Ten Commandments monument in the Alabama Supreme Court building, but that was the culmination of a goal to install similar monuments all across the country.

  1. The ten commandments should be:

    1. Do not believe in entities or events that have no evidence for existence in the natural universe by means of our senses or extensions of our senses.

    2. Question all authorities.

    3. Do not believe that different is another word for wrong.

    4. Do not kill another human being unless in the case of self defense.

    5. Take responsibility for your own actions.

    6. Think globally and act locally.

    7. Accept that there is no absolute truth.

    8. Do not assume you know how another person thinks or feels.

    9. Change your ideas if new evidence indicates that your previous ideas are incorrect.

    10. Do not attempt to impose your ideas on other people.

  2. @OP – Moore first burst onto the national scene in 2001 when he installed an illegal Ten Commandments monument in the Alabama Supreme Court building,

    Ah! The “profound knowledge and skill” of the faith thinker at reading LAW, and those unalterable “fixed for all time set-in-stone ten commandments”!

    III. Chart Comparing Four Versions of the 10 (11? 12?) Commandments

    The Catholics seem to miss out the one about “Graven Images”!

    Do not attempt to impose your ideas on other people.

    Yes, but what if my ideas, assertively presented, could result in changes that would be in their own best interest? Otherwise, aren’t I complicit in cultural relativity?

  4. To LaurieB #3:

    Imposition” means turning someone’s ideas into laws and forcing others to agree under threats of imprisonment. torture, or death .”Persuasion” is much different from “imposition” as I am sure you know. Also “relativity” is very different from “absolutism.” Also as you know, absolutism is a result of indoctrination rather than education (learning to think critically). I can’t think I have said anything new to you, but merely clarifying some thoughts on these issues.
