Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver continues to make over-the-top statements in his defense of Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, who was recently suspended from the court for defying federal court decisions on marriage equality, comparing Moore today to African Americans in the 1960s who lived in town where the local sheriff was a member of the Ku Klux Klan.
“It is a terrible situation,” Staver said on his “Faith and Freedom” radio program. “It makes you feel how African Americans may have felt—I don’t want to compare the two, but I’m just telling you that an African American calls the sheriff in in the 1960s for protection, not knowing that, in the evening, that sheriff puts on a KKK outfit. There’s no justice there. Well, there’s no justice still in Montgomery. Justice needs to return.”
