Roy Moore Hopes He Doesn't Have To Sacrifice His Life To Stop Gay Marriage

Right Wing Watch Reports:

At yesterday's "Defense of Texas Marriage Amendment Rally," Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore joined Texas politicians, including the state's lieutenant governor and attorney general, in denouncing the gay rights movement and federal judges who rule in favor of marriage equality.

Moore said he was motivated to speak at the anti-gay rally even though "normally judges don't speak in public about issues like this," he felt that "if I should hold back my opinions at such a time as this, I would consider myself guilty of treason toward my country and an act of disloyalty to the majesty of heaven which I revere above all earthly kings."

"There's today another threat, not only in Texas and Alabama, but across our country where state and federal court judges have overruled constitutional amendments passed by the people of those states, and people have just sat by and watched it out of fear of the federal government," Moore said. "But nothing in the Constitution of the United States, nothing in the laws or precedents of the federal courts give federal courts any authority over domestic policy of family and marriage in the state of Texas, in the state of Alabama, or anywhere else."
