Top Alabama Judge Says 1st Amendment Applies to Christians

Alabama chief justice Roy Moore suggested earlier this year that the First Amendment only protects the religious speech of Christians, the Huffington Post reports.

Said Moore: "Everybody, to include the U.S. Supreme Court, has been deceived as to one little word in the First Amendment called 'religion.' They can't define it." Moore said. "They can't define it the way Mason, Madison and even the United State Supreme Court defined it, 'the duties we owe to the creator and the manner of discharging it.' They don't want to do that, because that acknowledges a creator god. Buddha didn't create us. Mohammed didn't create us. It's the god of the Holy Scriptures."

He added: "They didn't bring a Koran over on the pilgrim ship, Mayflower. Let's get real. Let's go back and learn our history."
