This Alabama Judge Has Figured Out How to Dismantle Roe v. Wade - ProPublica

This Alabama Judge Has Figured Out How to Dismantle Roe v. Wade - ProPublica

If unemployed, Parker was hardly finished. He went to work at Moore’s Foundation for Moral Law, a think tank devoted “to protect[ing] the Constitution and protect[ing] the heritage of our Country.” It promoted the far-right strain of Christianity known as Reconstructionism — supporters believe that the Bible should be the governing text for all areas of civil and political life; that America’s Christian founders intended it to be a Christian land; that there is no law without God; that the law and the Constitution don’t evolve any more than humans do, but are fixed and immutable.

Read that again.
Law and constitution don't evolve.  Whatever the 'founder's of our country wrote down, is the law forever and forever [as interpreted of course, by these Christian groups, and cherry-picked to adhere to and enhance their agenda].

If this judge and his beliefs don't scare the pants off you, then you must be a right wing fundamentalist who has no problem with making god's law THE law of America, and no rights extended to those who choose not to believe.

But of course, these are the same people doing their darndest to re-write the state constitutions, to promote their agenda. So, if they push the law, it's OK. If they don't then it's bad.
