So the "Secular Socialists" Are Against Roy Moore?

A Texas man named Mike Sutton, claiming to be a son of Alabama, wrote to my local paper urging locals to vote for Roy Moore in Alabama's Republican Primary on June 6th. Here's a portion of his "logic":

I hear the same mantra over and over from those who oppose Judge Roy Moore. "He broke the law, he broke the law because he refused to remove the Ten Commandments from the courthouse." Nonsense! Judge Moore was the one who stood for the law and the truth. And the law he supposedly broke was no law at all. It was a ruling by Myron Thompson, an arrogant, unelected federal judge who holds in contempt America's foundation principles. ...

On Jan. 21, 1973 the law in America protected unborn babies. The very next day Hugo Black, a misguided U.S. Supreme Court judge from Ashland, Ala., ruled that the law allowed the wholesale slaughter of these same babies. Similarly, throughout history man's laws separated from God's law have led to oppression, bondage and genocide. And throughout history cowardly men have used the word law as an excuse to avoid taking a stand on critical issues. Too often these men are preachers who wrap their cowardice in pious rhetoric, causing their congregations to buy into their treachery.

Thomas Jefferson is the patron saint of those who are feverishly working to separate America from its Christian roots. The historical reality is that Jefferson was an arrogant, slave raping elitist who set about to establish his own scripture because he didn't like some of the more spiritual parts of the Bible. But the last time anyone checked Jefferson's bones were still rotting somewhere in Virginia.

On Easter Sunday most Americans observe the life, death, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, the man whose teachings have formed, built, and sustained America since the day the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock. It is these teachings that the secular socialists so despise, exposing their contempt for America's past and present, exposing themselves as the greatest threat to America's future.

It is your call Alabama. Whose vision of America will prevail on June 6? Will it be politics as usual with Bob Riley, or will you stand with Judge Roy Moore, a man you know you can trust to stand for the principles you hold dear. Will you stand with Judge Moore and send a strong message to the secular socialists that the defense of America's Christian heritage begins in Alabama.

Judge Moore's stand broke the law? No! Hitler's law broke the law. The Dred Scott Decision broke the law. Hugo Black's ruling broke the law. Myron Thompson's contempt for our foundation principles broke the law.

As June 6 approaches I beg you to consider what the future will be like for our children and grandchildren if we allow the secular socialists to rewrite our history and tear America away from its roots. As a son of Alabama I beg you to stand with Judge Roy Moore and let the battle for America's future begin with you.

"A position not founded upon reason cannot be swayed by argument." so I'll not offer a response beyond some likely wondering where the "socialist" portion of his label comes from. At best this is a decent illustration of the "thinking" of the extreme right wing. Maybe you and Reverend Roy can get together and figure out how to ignore this latest evolution support? I know the fossil is fragmented into many pieces, sort of like the Judge's campaign. No wonder Dubyah was elected as Governor of Texas with folks like Mike Sutton out there. On behalf of Alabama, I'm sorry. You can keep him. Peace ... or War!
