Roy Moore: Media 'will not print the truth'

Embattled judge decries 'prejudice' of journalists, skewers AG Pryor

In the second of a two-part interview, Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore takes on the man who prosecuted him before the Court of Judiciary for defiance of a federal judge's order to remove a Ten Commandments display from the state Judicial Building. State Attorney General William Pryor is in his own battle, with his nomination by President Bush to the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals facing stiff resistance by Senate Democrats who have questioned him about his strong religious beliefs. WorldNetDaily caught up with Moore in St. Louis Oct. 25. In the first part of this in-depth exclusive, conducted by freelance writer and radio host Jim Bennett, Moore not only argued his case but responded to his harshest critics in the Christian community. In part two, he takes aim at the media, at the controversy surrounding Army Lt. Gen. William Boykin, under fire for his comments in church meetings, and the case of Terri Schiavo situation, the brain-damaged Florida woman.

Q: How do you view the way the media have covered your story?

A: I am actually shocked to see the disinformation that comes out of the media. I've watched it in Alabama; it's particularly atrocious. They write articles that have no basis in truth. They will not print the truth. They avoid anything favorable, and they jump on the least accusation from someone. It's vicious, that's all I can say. I'm experiencing it right now, as we speak.

The former governor of Alabama, who hasn't said a word, more or less, to the press for six or seven years, he came out and made an affidavit in support of my motion to recuse the attorney general of Alabama [William Pryor] from prosecuting this case. The governor said, when he appointed the attorney general to the office, he explicitly questioned him on violating court orders which intrude into the sovereignty of the state.

The governor asked the AG what he would do if, for example, the governor were found in contempt. And he indeed said he would support the governor. Today, he turns around and he says that he would obey the rule of law. He will obey a judge who tells him he can't acknowledge God, despite the fact that the Constitution of Alabama says we must.

We find today that that very appointed attorney general, who has since been elected, has reversed his position. And he'll do whatever man says, despite the fact that he knows it violates the Constitution of Alabama and the Constitution of the United States, which he even admits. His position today is directly contrary to his position when he took office. This is what I'm finding. This was put out by the governor. Will the press print it? No. They'll make a mention of it in an article, and then they go on.

If I were caught in the same situation, it would be on every editorial page, every day, over and over. I can find no major newspaper in Alabama which has had a single positive thing to say about the Ten Commandments case.

I am very shocked, very surprised, at the attitude of the media the written media, the newspapers regarding this issue. I find less prejudice in the televised media and the radio media. The talk shows, there are some that are favorable and some that are not. But they're at least honest opinions. They allow people to voice their opinions.

The written media, they're particularly atrocious. I had my attorney tell me the other day and I won't mention the paper but my attorney told me that one of the writers for this particular newspaper actually told him that they could not get their story through the editors. That's how bad it is.

In this whole procedure, every motion we've made has been denied. The point of the attorney general getting out of the case, when he clearly has a personal interest two people on the ethics committee are extending past their term of office as appointed by the governor but the attorney general says that's okay. The justices of the Supreme Court turning to the attorney general for advice on the law I find it completely hypocritical. They're supposed to be justices on the Alabama Supreme Court, not doing whatever the attorney general says. Yes, there are some weird things going on, quite frankly.

Q: Returning to the accusation that you've created this situation for political gain, what is the personal price you're paying to continue in this fight?

A: Well, besides all the criticism I endure from the papers, you realize that I'm at risk of losing my job because I've acknowledged God. Not only that, I could lose my retirement. My family goes through these agonizing things also, because I'm the only breadwinner. My wife's not employed. This is my career. And I could lose my career. But nothing will stop me from acknowledging God.

Not only do the scriptures speak that we must acknowledge God, but also the very Constitution I'm sworn to uphold says I must acknowledge God. So, we've just gotten to a point in this country where we've let judges take away that acknowledgement. And we've got to stand up for our rights, or else we're going to lose them.

What I'm doing is not for me. It's for the children, and grandchildren and for generations to come. If we don't turn back to recognition that our rights come from God, the creator, then we're going to lose our rights.

We've already lost so much in this country. Our morality has simply gone to pot. You can open any newspaper in any city, and find things that would never have occurred 50 years ago. People are losing their sense of right and wrong. George Washington said in his farewell address on the 17th of September in 1796, "Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle."

Well, today we're not cognizant of our reason and experience. It should teach us that the further we get away from God, the more crime, the more violence, the more theft and lying we shall have. But we haven't learned that simple lesson. Reason and experience haven't taught it to us.
