Judge Roy Moore, running for U.S. Senate in Alabama, blasted the Koran in a Thursday interview, saying that it’s not compatible with the United States Constitution.
“I’ve often criticized Muslims who take an oath on the Koran because you can’t take an oath on the Koran to uphold the constitution because the Koran exactly disputes the constitution because religious liberty is not there in the Koran,” Moore said. “[In Islam] Government dictates how you believe and how you worship.”
Moore is the former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court whose 2017 U.S. Senate campaign was derailed by unproven allegations of sexual misconduct from decades ago, which have spurned several lawsuits against his accusers. To this day, none of his accusers have sworn to their statements under oath – choosing only to give them to The Washington Post. Naturally, the weak GOP relinquished its support for Moore, and subsequently a Senate seat that is rightfully Republican.
But Moore is back at it, and still fiery as ever.
“Throughout our history, if you wanted to immigrate to the us you had to support the united states. The constitution. The declaration,” Moore said. “Every state that entered the union had to take an oath to uphold principles of the Declaration of Independence which includes God. I think a big problem is we don’t see the relevance of God. We all appreciate religious freedom to worship as we want to, and government has no right to interfere with that. But that’s because there is a God and we recognize this God gives religious liberty, not government.
And when we remove the recognition of that God, we lose our religious liberty, we lose our rights we lose our freedoms. And that’s what’s happening in our country. We should remember that if we forget the relevance of God, we lose our morality.”
Moore faces several primary opponents in his 2020 Senate bid, but appears suited to take the election by storm.
