Alabama Chief Justice says same-sex marriage will ‘destroy the country’

Naith Payton June 4, 2015

Chief Justice Roy Moore believes same-sex marriage will destroy the United States.

The Alabama justice spoke to CNS news about the upcoming Supreme Court judgement on same-sex marriage.

He said: “They’re toying with something that’s like dynamite, that will destroy our country. I think eventually, over a period of time, it will.”

“It definitely will, because the gender, the homosexual movement, is to force acceptance of this on everybody.

“You’ve already seen it in cases of bakeries, flower shops, chaplains in the Navy.

“There are a lot of things that I think are trying to be forced because it deals with religious liberty.”

In February, despite a court ruling abolishing Alabama’s ban on same-sex marriage, Chief Justice Roy Moore urged probate judges to disobey– and refuse to issue marriage licences to gay and lesbian couples under threat of legal action.

He recently bizarrely suggested that if two bisexuals or trans people wanted a marriage, it would have to involve four people.

He said: “You’re taking any definition of a family away.

“When two bisexuals or two transgendered marry, how large is that family?

“Can they marry two persons, one of the same sex and one of the opposite sex? Then, you’ve got a family of four or how many?”
