From Crooks and Liars:
The Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court has done everything possible to delay the arrival of marriage equality in Alabama, sowing confusion and disorder rather than let the people of Alabama marry whomever they wish. Last week, Roy “Ten Commandments” Moore went on Jorge Ramos’s Fusion Channel show America to demonstrate his willful ignorance by proffering that LGBTs are “free” to marry a person of the opposite sex, after all.
Moore dismissed comparisons between gay rights and civil rights, saying they are not the same.
“You’re talking about sexual preference, that’s a completely different matter. It’s not a civil right to choose what sex you wanna be.”
“Do you think that people choose to be gay or not to be gay?” Ramos asked.
“I’m saying, that’s what you choose. That’s not the way you were born. … You’re born male or female. You can’t choose to be a woman by transgender.”
So apparently Roy Moore ignores not only federal supremacy but also his own state’s laws:
