The liberal media is already working hard to make Alabama Republican Roy Moore look scary and extreme. Chuck Todd made himself look like a complete idiot while doing so. Our founding documents explicitly claim our basic rights come from God, not the government. Todd thinks Moore is extreme for pointing this out.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
Chuck Todd: Roy Moore Doesn’t ‘Believe in the Constitution’ Because He Thinks Rights Come From God
MSNBC host Chuck Todd said Wednesday that Republican Alabama senatorial candidate Roy Moore doesn’t believe in the U.S. Constitution because he believes in God-given rights.
Todd, introducing his discussion of the former Alabama chief justice, said that “the phrase ‘Christian conservative’ doesn’t even begin to describe him.”
“First off, he doesn’t appear to believe in the Constitution as it’s written,” Todd said.
He then played a clip of Moore saying, “Our rights don’t come from government, they don’t come from the Bill of Rights, they come from Almighty God.”
“Those are just a taste of what are very fundamentalist views that have gotten him removed from office twice as Alabama’s chief justice,” Todd said.
Moore’s views are actually well in line with the philosophy of many of the Founders. As they saw it, the Constitution and the government only protected inalienable rights that were endowed by God or some other divine provenance.
