Controversial Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore has warned that the Supreme Court’s decision in favor of same-sex marriage could lead to a new “war” in the United States. He made those fiery comments in an interview that was posted online on Monday.
In an interview posted on YouTube and conducted by “Voice of Resistance” host Randall Terry, Moore predicted that the Supreme Court’s decision on gay marriage would face “a great backlash” from the American people. He drew comparisons between the actions of the high court and King George III during the American Revolution.
“I hope we don’t have a war,” Moore said. “I hope we don’t have conflicts, but we definitely need to recognize that same-sex marriage is something that has not existed on a government level.”
Moore added that “people have not seen what the consequences of this court’s ruling are yet.” He also claimed that state governors can disregard the Supreme Court’s decision in their states . . .
According to Jacob Kerr of the Huffington Post, Moore ordered county probate judges to ignore a federal district court’s ruling that legalized same-sex marriage in Alabama in January. He later recused himself in March from an Alabama Supreme Court order to stop all same-sex marriages in the state.
