Roy Moore: “I Did Nothing Illegal, I Only Suffered Because I Try To Block Gay Marriage”

Sandy Rios of American Family Radio invited former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore on her show on Monday to talk about his bid for U.S. Senate, but instead mostly discussed his suspensions from the state supreme court, once for refusing to take down a Ten Commandments monument which he installed in the courthouse rotunda, and more recently for trying to go against the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision.

According to Moore, he got suspended because he insisted that Alabama judges defy the Supreme Court’s Obergfell decision, which prohibits state marriage bans, more proof that he is being persecuted because he is a Christian.

“I did nothing wrong under the canons, I did nothing wrong legally, I did everything according to the law, but of course if you speak up today you’re going to suffer persecution,” he said. “I don’t like to be persecuted, I don’t like for people to prosecute me without any cause, but that’s just what Christians are supposed to do.”

“I was prosecuted without cause simply because I opposed the agenda of the homosexual and transgender groups,” Moore added, pointing to the complaint filed by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which he claimed is “probably the biggest hate group in our country because they hate God and they hate anything about God and Christianity, and they’re going to continue their deception by hiding behind that word ‘hate.’”
