Former AL Justice Claims Same-Sex Marriage Would Increase Divorce and Child Abuse

March 20, 2011

Bigots of a feather-stick together… Roy Moore and Rev. Keith Radcliff join forces in an attempt to pursuade Iowan’s to violate the Human Rights of it’s LGBT population.

Crackpot ex-justice and Gadsden Alabama native Roy Moore , of the 10-commandments notoriety, has taken up a new cause siding with Yankee anti-modern family zealots.  He was recently in Des Moines Iowa (a state actively involved in the War of Northern Aggression) to rally against LGBT Human Rights already granted in the State of Iowa. 

Former Justice Roy Moore

Moore, wants to turn back the clock in Iowa and ban LGBT Marriage, which was already granted by the Iowa Supreme Court.  In an ironic twist, Moore, a representative of one of the last states to recognize Civil Rights in the ’60’s, was flanked by the President of the Iowa-Nebraska NAACP Keith Ratliff.   Ratliff, an intolerant, anti-Human Rights advocate in his own right was quoted as saying that LGBT activists are “hijacking the civil rights movement for its own purposes.”– True, we are.  Civil Rights are Human Rights, and we’d like our rights to not be suppressed by bigots like yourself.

DES MOINES, Iowa — About 500 people rallied Tuesday, March 15, at the Iowa Capitol, urging legislators to send a constitutional amendment to voters that would ban same-sex marriage.

The rally featured former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore, who said gay marriage will result in child abuse and divorce. He asked opponents to set an example.

“What happens in Iowa, the rest of the nation watches,” Moore said.


“I’m proud to say that the people of Iowa stood up to the justices on the Supreme Court and voted them out of office,” Moore said.

Also addressing the crowd was the Rev. Keith Ratliff, pastor at Maple Street Missionary Baptist Church in Des Moines, who charged that the gay community is hijacking the civil rights movement for its own purposes.

“In my humble opinion there is no parallel,” Ratliff said. “What an insult to the civil rights movement.”
