Crazed, gun-toting Alabama Republican Roy Moore received a warm welcome at the ultra-conservative Voter Values Summit on Friday, where the GOP nominee for the state’s upcoming Senate race insisted that the Supreme Court justices who had the audacity to allow same sex marriage into law should be removed.

Speaking hours after President Donald Trump took the stage to declare a new front in the imaginary war on Christmas, Moore passionately urged Congress to use its powers of impeachment.

‚ÄúSomebody should be talking to the Supreme Court of the United States and say, ‚ÄėWhat gives them a right to declare that two men can get married?‚Äô‚ÄĚ Moore said, according to Right Wing Watch.

‚ÄúTell the Congress,‚ÄĚ he continued, ‚ÄúImpeach these justices that put themselves above the Constitution. They‚Äôre judicial supremists and they should be taken off the bench.‚ÄĚ

Moore‚Äôs homophobia has long been a staple of his public career. In 2005, he insisted that ‚Äúhomosexual conduct should be illegal‚ÄĚ and later compared being gay to bestiality, saying laws that prohibited the later should apply to the former since ‚Äúit‚Äôs the same thing.‚ÄĚ

In 2016, Moore was suspended as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court for instructing judges to ignore laws allowing same-sex unions. At the time, the state judiciary ruled he had ‚Äúflagrantly disregarded and abused his authority.‚ÄĚ

Since then, however Moore’s bigotry and generally bonkers behavior has only gotten more extreme.

In late September, he whipped out a gun at a campaign rally, and several weeks earlier, he mused about the racial implications of ‚Äúreds and yellows fighting‚ÄĚ one another.
