Roy Moore is truly frightening

Roy Moore is truly frightening. The greatest threat posed by Roy Moore is not the possibility that he is a pedophile; rather it is his admitted and proud proclamation that he is a theocrat. Specifically his evangelical Protestant faith. As a judge, He has stated that he interprets law based on his personal religious beliefs. Think about this for a second. Imagine if you had to face a judge that ignored the constitution in the execution of the law and instead followed their beliefs as a Protestant, a Mormon, or a Jehovah’s Witnesses, or a Scientologists, or a Sunni, or Hindu, or Yanomamo, or sharia, or the great Flying Spaghetti Monster, … (I am not specifically picking on any of these belief systems, you can insert any religious belief that you do not follow to make the point). Yes, pedophiles can destroy the lives of individuals and families that they assault, but a theocrat denies the freedom of all citizens and destroys the foundation of a democratic society.

This admission should absolutely nullify Roy Moore’s eligibility to serve as a judge or serve in any public office.
