Caleb Moore, the son of Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, was arrested for drug possession on Sunday in Troy. He was also charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana.

According to court documents, Caleb Moore, 24, was arrested after officers responded to the 1200 block of Allen Street on an attempted home break-in call. He was with four other men. Officers found a bag of marijuana, several Xanax pills in the glove compartment of the truck.

Caleb Moore was released on $8500 bond and his first court appearance is set for April 7.

Caleb Moore railed in a Facebook post about the charges that his critics were out to destroy his father. He also blamed the media and the police for his actions:

“This is nothing more than a prime example of how media and crooked police officers and critics of my dad try to not only destroy his career for what he stands for but will go as far as trying to destroy his family,” he wrote. “I am not a drug user as the drug test taken today will show. As for the malicious possession charges, justice will be served.”

Dr. Ben Carson: Prison Proves People Choose to be Gay (VIDEO)

Dr. Ben Carson said he believes being gay is a choice because “a lot of people who go into prison, go into prison straight, and when they come out, they’re gay.” He added, “So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself the question.” What an incredibly ludicrous thing to say. Um, I guess he’s oblivious to the culture of rape in prisons around the world.

Carson made this disturbing comment during an interview on CNN’s “New Day” with Chris Cuomo, who asked whether he thought being gay was a choice. To which he said, “absolutely.”

Um, so how do you explain those gay people who didn’t find themselves behind bars? Ben Carson is a fool. For someone who made such an enormous contribution to the field of medicine, I am appalled, to say the least. Thankfully, Carson isn’t a serious presidential candidate and will drop out of the race quickly. He’s just pandering to the worst elements of the Republican Party.

UPDATE:  Dr. Ben Carson has issued an apology saying he “realized that my choice of language does not reflect fully my heart on gay issues.” He added, “I do not pretend to know how every individual came to their sexual orientation. I regret that my words to express that concept were hurtful and divisive. For that I apologize unreservedly to all that were offended.”

Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore Says No Court Has Right to Define Marriage

Alabama Judge Roy Moore Says No Court Has Right to Define Marriage

Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore doubled down on his position banning gay marriage saying no lower court has the right to define marriage during a contentious interview with Chris Cuomo on CNN. He said he “dissented” from the federal court’s ruling because it was “exactly like” Supreme Court rulings in Dred Scott and Plessy vs. Ferguson that upheld slavery and segregation. Moore said both decisions were wrong and should not have been followed by the states. So, he’s giving himself supreme powers to do as he pleases based on his views of the definition of marriage.

He is framing his disagreement with gay marriage on the grounds that these two decisions were wrong — blacks were property. Typical spin by white right wing evangelicals. Cuomo hit hard when he told Moore, “Our laws do not come from God, and you know that.” Same sex marriage licenses were issued in some counties in Alabama, while 50 judges followed Moore’s advice. Kinda like the mess that unfolded when Wallace balked at desegregation efforts in the 1960s.

Roy Moore dredging up the Dred Scott decision is a favorite ploy of same sex marriage opponents. During the CNN interview, he demanded to know if Cuomo would have ruled in accordance with the Dred Scott decision had he been a justice during that time. Cuomo slapped back, saying Moore was only trying to skirt his obligations by pushing them on others by dissenting. Justices were allowed to dissent on a decision they did not agree with.

Moore said gay marriage is an alteration of the word marriage and that no court has the right to alter the Constitution under the 10th Amendment. He said every person in the U.S. has the right to marry someone of the opposite sex. This reminds me of the dust-up he caused when he refused to remove the Ten Commandments from the courthouse.

Roy Moore said God gave us the definition of our rights for many centuries until recently, when gay marriage entered the fray. He said the question of the definition of marriage will be taken up by the Supreme Court in June.

The battle between Chris Cuomo and Roy Moore went on for 30 minutes before it ended with CNN losing its satellite connection with the chief judge. What Justice Moore has done was to ignore the court’s ruling based on his values. Um, wrong. But this is nothing new. He has a history of forcing his values on the rest of his state.

By the way, SCOTUS Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg believes American are ready for gay marriage. She said, “The changes in people’s attitudes on that issue has been enormous. In recent years, people have said, ‘This is the way I am.’ And others looked around, and we discovered it’s our next-door neighbor — we’re very fond of them. Or it’s our child’s best friend, or even our child. I think that as more and more people came out and said that ‘this is who I am,’ the rest of us recognized that they are one of us,” Bloomberg reports. Good, that should send Roy Moore on another 30 minute rant.

Self-righteous Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee says being gay is part of a lifestyle, like drinking and swearing, CNN reports. Um, we know who won’t be the GOP presidential nominee for the 2016 elections.

During an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash, Huckabee said expecting Christians to accept same sex marriage is “like asking someone who is Jewish to start serving bacon-wrapped shrimp in their deli.”

On the issue of being gay a lifestyle choice, Mike Huckabee said, “People can be my friends who have lifestyles that are not necessarily my lifestyle. I don’t shut people out of my circle or out of my life because they have a different point of view. I don’t drink alcohol, but gosh — a lot of my friends, maybe most of them, do. You know, I don’t use profanity, but believe me, I’ve got a lot of friends who do. Some people really like classical music and ballet and opera — it’s not my cup of tea.”

So much for the party of inclusiveness. Mike Huckabee has insulted yet another important group of voters, in additions to black, Hispanic and young voters. No word yet from RNC chief Reince Priebus on Huckabee’s comments.

Just to put this all in context, Mike Huckabee also blamed the Newtown school shooting massacre on taking God out of schools.

Every now and then, someone of Fox News makes sense. Shepard Smith compared the states resisting same sex marriage in the U.S. to those states who wanted to keep segregation in tact in the U.S. during the Civil Rights Movement. This comes as the U.S. Supreme Court will hear four different cases challenging same-sex marriage in four different states — Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan and Tennessee.

Smith said, “Not in every case, but in most cases, the same states which were fighting integration are fighting this as well.”

“Those states which always seem to be behind the curve for reasons which are explainable and understandable. Those are the places where this is going to turn out to be the most difficult, especially if the Supreme Court stays with what has seemed to be a trend toward inclusion and away from discrimination.”

He addressed Wall Street Journal editor John Bussey’s comment that “there’s still disagreement on this issue within the American population, saying, “There’s still disagreement on segregation.”

JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL: Mississippi pastor Edward James dressed a horse in a wedding dress and stood outside the federal courthouse to protest same sex marriage. Um, I didn’t realize a horse could consent to marriage in the same way as a gay or straight couple could.

WJTV  reports Pastor James, of Bertha Chapel Missionary Baptist Church of Charlotte, thought of this ridiculous scheme all by himself in response to a federal decision to lift the ban on same-sex marriage in Mississippi was handed down in November.

“The horse is to show the ridiculous idea of two men getting married,” James said. He said,“I’m a Mississippian and I’m praying and hoping that we will remain a state that only recognizes marriage between a man and a woman.”

Edward James said, “I’ve had 100-percent support so far, thumbs up, tooting on the horns, I’ve even had a couple come out and give me a hug and hug the horse.” Oh well, it’s Mississippi.

Here’s the video of Pastor Edward James with his horse:

Joan Rivers raised eyebrows after she was caught on video during an on-the-street interview calling President Obama gay and First Lady Michelle Obama a “tranny.” Um, really Joan? Take a good, long look in the mirror.

After she officiated an impromptu gay wedding at her New York City book signing on Monday, Rivers was asked about whether she thinks the U.S. will see a gay president or woman president.

She responded, “We alread have it with Obama, so let’s just calm down.” She added, “You know Michelle is a tranny.” Wow, really Joan?

The comments sparked outrage on Twitter:

Massachusetts Pastor Scott Lively: Obama Loves Sexual Anarchy, Maybe Gay

Scott Lively, a Massachusetts gubernatorial candidate, thinks President Obama might be gay because he supports same-sex marriage. The ‘wisdom’ of the right wing evangelicals is nothing short of amazing. By the way, this wingnut is a pastor.

Lively told UK’s Channel 4 News, “I think Mr. Obama may well be a homosexual himself.””He’s certainly a radical homosexualist — meaning a person, whether they are homosexual or not, meaning a person who is 100 percent invested in the homosexual agenda.”

Scott Lively also claims President Obama was trying to “legitimize sexual perversion” and destroy religious values.

“He is lending the weight of his office to a movement that’s goal is to overturn the Judeo-Christian sexual ethic and replace it with the gay ethic of sexual anarchy. That’s what he’s doing,” Lively added.

Megachurch pastor Joel Osteen told “Katie” during a recent interview that he wouldn’t marry two gay individuals saying, “No Katie, because I feel that would go against what the Scriptures teaches. He said he doesn’t ‘harp’ on such issues.

Osteen also said “But anytime I talk about this, people say you’re a gay-basher and all that, we are not. We’re for everybody. Our ministry is about lifting people up.”  So, he’s not for gay marriage, but he’s for everyone, right?

Joel Osteen also emphasized that the overall theme in the Bible, which was also echoed by Jesus Christ — “love God and love your neighbor as you love yourself.” Katie Couric asked Osteen “are you worried if you spoke out supporting it [gay marriage] that there would be a backlash against your congregation?”

Osteen said “Well, I think there would be because I don’t feel like that’s what the Scriptures says.” He added, “But again, there’s so many things that we can focus on. I’m not going to harp on one group. I’m for everybody. Jesus said, ‘I didn’t come into the world to condemn people but that the world could be saved.’ Our ministry is about lifting people up. Let them make their own decisions, I’m not the one to judge anybody,” he added.
