Moore Campaign Asks Doug Jones how he can Protect Religious Liberty of Alabamians

MONTGOMERY, Ala. – On Tuesday, the Moore Campaign asked Doug Jones the fourth of twelve Christmas questions.

In light of today’s landmark Supreme Court hearing in the religious liberty case of Jack Phillips, the Christian baker who declined to service a gay wedding, how will you act to protect the religious liberty of business owners and individuals in Alabama?

A few weeks ago, in an interview with The Economist, Doug Jones was asked the following question: “How can you reassure [Roy Moore’s] supporters that you are not out to take away their religious freedom or their guns, their culture?” Doug Jones answered, “I don’t know if I can.”

“Of course he can’t,” Moore Campaign Chairman, Bill Armistead said. “Jones’ backers are waging war on the traditional family and suing business owners for seeking to exercise their deeply held religious beliefs. Doug Jones is a serious threat to the religious liberty of the people of Alabama."

Doug Jones is funded, supported, and endorsed by the likes of George Soros and one of the nation’s largest LGBT rights organizations, the Human Rights Campaign who has spearheaded the opposition to the Christian baker, Jack Phillips and countless other people of faith.

Doug Jones has suggested that he would not have voted to confirm Donald Trump’s latest Supreme Court pick, Neil Gorsuch, signaling that he would only confirm liberal activist judges in the tradition of Ruth Bader-Ginsberg and Elena Kagan.

Since the early days, Judge Roy Moore has tenaciously fought for the religious liberty of Alabama citizens. He has opposed judicial overreach so that Alabamians could keep prayer in the courtroom, the Ten Commandments on display, and the institution of marriage between one man and one woman as established by God.

"Alabamians know that Judge Moore will carry that fight to Washington where people of faith need a champion now more than ever," Armistead said.
