He’s baaaaaaacccck! Former Chief Justice Roy Moore was removed from office in 2003 for being a self-righteous asshole refusing to abide by a federal judge’s order to remove his 5,280-lb. graven image of the Ten Commandments (the second of which prohibits graven images) from public display in the state judicial building.
Now he’s “seriously considering” running to regain that office.
Judge Roy Moore said Tuesday he’s seriously considering running again for chief justice eight years after being kicked out of the job for refusing to remove a Ten Commandments monument.
Moore, 64, told The Associated Press in an exclusive interview that lots of people have encouraged him to enter the Republican primary and he expects to decide by Jan. 1.
That sound you hear? It’s me retching.
Let us not forget that this is the man who wrote in reference to LGBT people:
The State carries the power of the sword, that is, the power to prohibit [homosexual] conduct with physical penalties, such as confinement and even execution. It must use that power to prevent the subversion of children toward this lifestyle, to not encourage a criminal lifestyle.
Of course, Roy also “seriously” considered running for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, but he decided against it. He actually ran for the Republican gubernatorial nomination in 2006 and 2010 – and was soundly trounced both times. We can only hope for similar results this time around.
