The Truth Will Out

My friend Melissa passed along this report on Roy Moore’s speech to the Blount County Chamber of Commerce:

The Blount County Chamber of Commerce is in the middle of using its monthly breakfast meeting to host the four gubernatorial candidates. Today, former Chief Justice Roy Moore spoke at the breakfast in Oneonta. The majority of his speech was focused on attacking “Montgomery”, the state legislature, Gov. Riley, Ag Commissioner Sparks, and Ryan deGraffenreid.

At the conclusion of his speech, he stated he would welcome all questions whether they are about his faith, trial, judicial stances, etc. A Blount County resident (a senior aged female) asked Mr. Moore about his thoughts on constitutional reform and a people’s convention. Mr. Moore replied by asking the woman if she had read the constitution and all of its amendments. She stated that she had read some, but not all. Mr. Moore then said that he had read the entire document, that it was a good document and the only changes he would support would be to compile the inactive portions into another document. He then stated that he was opposed to a constitutional convention because special interests controlled Montgomery and would inevitably control a convention. The lady then asked did he not think that Alabamians were smart enough to see through the rhetoric of special interests groups and decide for themselves about a convention and its product. Former Chief Justice Moore quickly, and emphatically shot back, “No.” (emphasis added)

As you can imagine, there was a collective gasp in the room and many were left looking at their neighbor trying to figure out if he had just said what everyone had heard him say. Mr. Moore and the lady then went back and forth for a couple of minutes debating the topic. Afterwards, Mr. Moore asked if there were any other questions. There weren’t.

I’m not surprised that Roy thinks the people of Alabama are stupid. After all, a majority of voters elected him Chief Justice, and many of them still send him money to support his crusade to force his version of Christianity on the rest of us. I just hope his statement is widely circulated so those who might consider voting for him will know what he really thinks of them.

    I’m less offended that as a voter he thinks I’m stupid than I am by his feelings about me as a Christian.

    As a Christian he thinks my faith is wrong because I believe we are required to take care of the poor, I do not believe the state should dictate religion to individuals (including creating graven images related to same) and I do not believe gays should be put to death. Becasue those are my beliefs, His Honor does not believe I am a Christian. That makes me mad.

    What about Loretta Nall?

  3. For all his rhetoric, Roy is still all about Roy — and his own power. Simple as that.

    Hissoner is presently on Don Markwell’s Viewpoint talk radio program (WACV AM 1170, Montgomery) as I type, and he tells a different tale about his answer from what has been reported here and in MSM. Someone has to be evading the truth, or else imagining things as they would like them to be, I suppose.

    Poser, it’s for sure that Loretta is sexier than Roy. ;)

  6. Kathy says:

    Don, I can’t imagine which one that would be. We all know Roy has a firm grip on reality…

  7. Loretta Nall says:

    I support the citizens of Alabama to call a constitutional convention. I will also add here that it worries me because such a convention would surely not include enough third parties and independents like myself to be represented fairly. That said I still support the right of the citizens of Alabama to call a constitutional convention.

    I also support I&R for Alabama. That would solve a great many of our problems in this state.

    In Liberty,
    Loretta Nall
