I was just a little kid when Alabama Governor George Wallace gave his famous inauguration speech announcing segregation now, segregation tomorrow, and segregation forever. I had hoped that we, in America, had matured and improved our morality in the last half century.
Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore wants to prove that segregation, and other immoral acts, still get votes in Alabama. The Alabama Supreme Court is elected and today the Chief Justice demonstrated that he will continue to pander to the immorality of voters. He was removed from office in 2003 for idolatry, but the voters support idolatry – as long as it is their version of the golden calf. Because tradition has arbitrarily limited the rights of some Americans, some Americans think that immoral tradition should continue.
These defenders of immorality claim that they are defending Biblical marriage. With so many forms of God-endorsed Biblical marriage, why do they defend only one form? Why not the polygamy that God approved of in the Bible? Why not the selling of a daughter into sexual slavery that God approved of in the Bible? Why do they leave out the parts of the Bible that they find embarrassing?
7 “If a man sells his daughter as a female slave, she is not to [a]go free as the male slaves [b]do. 8 If she is [c]displeasing in the eyes of her master [d]who designated her for himself, then he shall let her be redeemed. He does not have authority to sell her to a foreign people because of his [e]unfairness to her. 9 If he designates her for his son, he shall deal with her according to the custom of daughters. 10 If he takes to himself another woman, he may not reduce her [f]food, her clothing, or her conjugal rights. 11 If he will not do these three things for her, then she shall go out for nothing, without payment of money. Exodus 21:7-11
What about all of the other forms of Biblical marriage that the God of the Bible endorses?
Fortunately, we live in America, so these examples of Biblical immorality are prohibited.
Justifications of slavery are rooted in the Bible and an economic system that is so obscene that it is used as a metaphor for other, less bad economic systems, such as communism and Nazism. We had to defend America against a rebellion by those who wanted to expand slavery. It took half a million deaths in a war to end this Biblical immorality.
Justifications of laws prohibiting contraception are rooted in the Bible. Struck down by the American Supreme Court in Griswold v. Connecticut in 1965.
Justifications of laws prohibiting interracial marriage are rooted in the Bible. Struck down by the American Supreme Court in Loving v. Virginia in 1967.
Justifications of laws prohibiting marriage equality are rooted in the Bible. Struck down by the American Supreme Court in Obergefell v. Hodges in 2015.
To paraphrase what has been written elsewhere, The fact that I can no longer sell my daughter as a sex slave means that we have already redefined marriage. It is just one of many parts of eternal and unchanging laws of the God of the Bible that are illegal in civilized countries.
On the other hand, maybe these Christians are right. Maybe we should return to Biblical marriage. I don’t make much money as a paramedic and my daughter got her looks from her mother. The bidding starts at . . . well, make me an offer. It is the moral thing to do, according to the Bible.
When will we stop listening to Bible thumpers promoting immorality in the name of their interpretation of their Bible?
The American Constitution is in conflict with the Bible, because the Founding Fathers were more interested in fair play than in promoting persecution by the religious. The Founding Fathers could have limited the vote (and political office) to Protestants, but they explicitly forbade such discrimination.
So many of these segregationists claim to disapprove of big government, but demand a big government to enforce their rules of watered down sharia. Hypocrisy seems to be required to defend such blatant immorality.
 The Quixotic Adventures of Roy Moore – Alabama’s chief justice issued an order on Wednesday to keep the state’s same-sex marriage ban intact despite the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling last year.
5:15 PM ET
Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore issued an administrative order Wednesday that effectively banned same-sex marriages in the state, less than seven months after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that same-sex marriage bans violated the Constitution.
The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.
