The following video shows Alabama state Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore saying, among other things, “Buddha didn’t create us. Mohammed didn’t create us. It’s the god of the Holy Scriptures.”

During the talk, Moore suggests that America was founded as a Christian nation and he strongly suggests that American law, particularly the First Amendment, protects Christians.

This should not be a shocking legal analysis coming from the man who was removed from office (he was since re-elected) for refusing to remove a statue of the Ten Commandments from public property.
