Roy Moore Longs for Theocracy in Non-Concession Speech

Dec 14, 2017

By Hemant Mehta

Last night, Roy Moore reiterated that he wasn’t conceding his Senate race in Alabama to Democrat Doug Jones just yet before reminding us why he had no business ever going to Congress even before the molestation scandal came to light.

Moore sounded like a retiring pop star singing his greatest hits, hitting on his campaign platform of We’re Not Fundamentalist Christian Enough.

Today, we no longer recognize the universal truth that God is the author of our life and liberty.

Abortion, sodomy, and materialism have taken the place of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

We have stopped prayer in our schools.

We have killed over 60 million of our unborn children.

We have redefined marriage and destroyed the basis of family, which is the building block of our Country.

We have even begun to recognize the right of a man to claim to be a woman, and vice versa.

Immorality sweeps over our land.

Speaking of immorality, nowhere in that video was there an apology to the women who accused him of molestation and general creepiness.

    Goodness, how wrong can one be? And this guy was a Federal judge? How can one, even a fundamentalist, conceive of God the author (not creator?) of life and liberty being a “universal truth”? How can it not dawn on these nincompoops that every religion on earth thinks theirs is the universal truth? And that number of adherents does not confer any special attributes to the religion itself (aside from ease of membership)?

    Abortion has been around, both in natural form and assisted form, since human mammals have given birth. Sodomy (as he’s referring to it) is a happily consented to sex act for many people, both hetero and homosexual. Materialism (again, as he likely means it) is the basis of our capitalist society. So to sum up, abortion is a natural part of life; sodomy is a great example of liberty (free will); and materialism can certainly be part of the pursuit of happiness. Did I miss anything?

  • Here’s a post I was going to put on the “Roy Moore: The eyes of the world are on Alabama election”, thread, before this new one appeared, but which I could not up-load while the RDFS site was having work done on it.

    Roy Moore says he will not accept defeat in Alabama’s election, arguing the vote was “tainted” by outside groups trying to stay in power.

    Mr Moore railed against gay rights, abortion, and “the right of a man to claim to be a woman and vice versa”.

    “We are indeed in a struggle to preserve our republic, our civilisation and our religion,” Mr Moore said in fire-and-brimstone remarks.

    The election race, he claimed, was “tainted by over $50 million from outside groups who want to retain power and their corrupt ideology”.

    Which is ironically laughable when it comes from one of the Republican bought stooges, moaning when as an exception to the usual situation, a democrat candidate has better funding than he has!

    The Christian conservative ex-judge also said the American people “no longer recognise the universal truth that God is the author of our life and liberty”.

    Ah! Those “universal trrroooofs” beloved by dominating god-delusions, which are soooo miffed, that more rational people don’t recognise their fantasy claims as part of reality!

    “Abortion, sodomy and materialism have taken the place of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” he added, referring to a famous passage in the US Declaration of Independence.

    There’s a novel example of compartmentalised thinking! An ultra right Republican railing against “materialism” while receiving commercial sponsorship for his campaign!

    Mr Moore crashed to defeat after he was engulfed by multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, including child molestation.

    That sounds about par for the course, with an arrogant posturing sexual abuser, casting aspersions of the sexuality of others!

    “In this race,” he said, “we have not received the final count to include military and provisional ballots.”

    He added that he was awaiting final certification of the results.

    Mr Jones won 49.9% of the vote compared to Mr Moore’s 48.4%, a margin of nearly 21,000 votes out of 1.3 million cast, US media report.

    Alabama’s secretary of state has said overseas ballots can continue to come in until Tuesday next week.

    But he said it was “highly unlikely” the Democrat will not be formally declared the winner.

  • It always strikes me that the louder someone trumpets their religiosity and goodness the worse they actually behave. I’m thinking Ted Haggard railing against homosexuality to get his gullible sheeples to cough up their money and then going home and spending it on gay prostitutes. I’m still convinced Fred Phelps’ (Westboro baptist church) obsession with gays was because he was a closet one himself.

    I doubt most American politicians are actually believers, they just can’t afford to come out as atheist in a country so backwards.

    I think many believe in nothing (apart from self-serving greed), but are sufficiently multi-faced to pay lip service to anything they find expedient!

  • Religion provides easy rationalization for corrupt people to believe they are righteous, all evidence to the contrary.

    One complaint about Moore is that he insists on doing god’s business on the taxpayer’s dime. If I went to my dentist for a toothache and instead of fixing my tooth he proceeded to lecture me on religious matters and try to save my soul, I wouldn’t pay him. He wouldn’t be doing his job.

    At least Moore is forthright about his intentions- to promote a theocratic state, the constitution and laws of this land be damned.

    I’m still convinced Fred Phelps’ (Westboro baptist church) obsession with gays was because he was a closet one himself.

    Possibly. After Fred was excommunicated from the WBC by Shirley for advocating a kinder attitude to defecting younger members, he allegedly said, standing outside the Rainbow House “There are good people in there.”

    Whilst there are many atheists in foxholes, atheists who more often than not go gentle into that good night, I think those summoning Hell in judgement on specific “sinning” others, realise in their own final fox hole, the judgement call cuts two ways for them also. In morte veritas, perhaps.

  • I see Trump has progressively distanced himself from Roy Moore since the loss of the election, but blames “a bad candidate” rather than Trump policies!

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-42343054

    It could also be seen as a rebuke of President Donald Trump, who gave full-throated support to Roy Moore even when other leaders in his party were hesitant.

    BUT Trump has now done an about face since the loss:-

    US President Donald Trump has distanced himself from Roy Moore after the Republican suffered a historic defeat for the party in conservative Alabama.
