Letter: Intolerance on the Bench
Obispo Tribune, March 4, 2002
P. O. Box 112, San Luis Obispo, CA, 93406
In stating that homosexuality is "abhorrent, immoral, detestable, a
crime against nature, and a violation of the laws of nature," Alabama
Chief Justice Roy Moore has demonstrated that it is he who is absolutely
unworthy of sitting in a place of supposedly unbiased judgment.
Even in a Bible-banging, backward state such as Alabama, this kind of
rhetoric has no place in a court of justice.
Just as Alabama is an embarrassment to America, Moore’s religious
fanaticism is an embarrassment to decency and tolerance, and he should be
removed from office.
