Leave it to the "Ten Commandments judge" to inject gay bashing into the tea party convention. In his big speech this afternoon, Roy Moore castigated President Obama for the far-right's usual litany of offenses and added this one for good measure: Obama had the audacity to issue a proclamation for "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month." To Moore, that means the president "has elevated immorality to a new level."

"Go forth armed in the holy cause of liberty," he told the cheering tea partiers.

Here's the money quote from the judge who became a conservative hero for his refusal, as the elected chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, to remove a monument of the Ten Commandments from the state courthouse:

"[Obama] has ignored our history and our heritage, arrogantly declaring to the world that we are no longer a Christian nation. He has elevated immorality to a new level, setting aside the entire month of June to celebrate gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender pride. He now threatens to change our law to allow homosexuality in our military ... He's apologized to the Arab world for our past, subjugated our national sovereignty by bowing down to the king of Saudi Arabia. He has pursued a socialist agenda by taking control of private companies and pushing a national health care plan with a public option. Backed by a willing Congress, he's bought off our senators and representatives with our own money in an effort to mandate his agenda."
