The woman who filed suit to reinstate Roy Moore as Alabama's Supreme Court chief justice now fears his election as governor.
Whether Christian talk show host Kelly McGinley had a falling out with the right wing of the Republican Party or saw a vision of the future, she's saying some chilling things.
From Mobile, Ms. McGinley said Mr. Moore and his followers want to establish a theocracy, or a government by a person or persons who claims to rule with divine authority.
She said they "wish to bring a government based on Old Testament law, which would administer the death penalty for offenses ranging from homosexuality to talking back to your parents." ...
Whether she's got it right or is wrong about Mr. Moore's supporters, the country's radical-right element wants to fundamentally change the nation's government. The Moore wing of the Republican Party is a roiling mass of fearful people who haven't made the transition to the teachings in the New Testament.
As proof of that, Mr. Moore built his candidacy entirely on defying the constitutional ban on mixing church and state.

Former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore, famous for his battle to keep a shrine to the Ten Commandments in the lobby of the Alabama Judicial building and his hatred of Gay people, could be a threat to democracy, according to the editorial board of the The Decatur Daily.
