Epic 25 Minute Interview Chris Cuomo Battles Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore in on Gay Marriage (Video)

From The Last Tradition[1]

This is a very vigorous debate between Chief Justice Roy Moore and Chris Cuomo. I think Chief Justice Moore is doing the right thing and God’s work standing up for traditional marriage which is supposed to be between a man and a woman. Any change to that definition by human law doesn’t make it a marriage between same sex people.

Mediaite[2] reports this you don’t see every day. New Day anchor Chris Cuomo battled Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore for almost thirty straight minutes this morning over Moore’s order that Alabama probate judges ignore the Supreme Court[3] and refuse to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples[4]. Some judges have followed Moore’s order, with same-sex couples filing to hold them in contempt[5].

Cuomo argued that Moore was substituting his own value judgments over the ruling of the higher courts, essentially Joe Scarborough’s argument from a couple days ago[6]. Cuomo pointed out that Moore had a controversial history of doing so, most visibly when he was removed from his post in 2003 after he refused to take down a stone monument of the Ten Commandments in his court room. (Moore was reelected last year.)
