Alabama Senate Candidate Roy Moore (R) claimed that America asked for more shootings by rejecting God according to the Hill. The Pastor and former Alabama Supreme Court Justice made these comments publicly while speaking to a crowd in August.
Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore in an August speech said the U.S. asked for "shootings and killings" because the country has "taken God out of everything." In an Aug. 24 speech to Citizen Impact USA, a Christian conservative group, Moore also lamented the lack of prayer in public schools and city council meetings.
"You wonder why we're having shootings, and killings here in 2017? Because we've asked for it," he said. "We've taken God out of everything. We've taken prayer out of school, we've taken prayer out of council meetings."
