Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore spoke from the pulpit, and make no mistake, it was a sermon.
"Let's get real," he said. "Let's learn our history. Let's stop playing games."
Moore spoke to the Pastors-for-Life in Mississippi in January, but video from that speech only began to make its way around the Internet in the last week. In it, Moore argues that "religion," as defined in the First Amendment, applies only to God the Creator.
"Everybody, to include the United States Supreme Court, has been deceived as to one little word in the first amendment called 'religion,'" he said. "They can't define it."
Moore insisted that freedom of religion applies only the God of the Bible, and therefore the protections of the establishment clause do not extend to other religions, such as Islam and Buddhism.
