Justice Who Ruled That Embryos Are 'Children' Appeared On QAnon Conspiracist's Show

Huffington Post

Alabama Chief Justice Tom Parker, who wrote the concurring opinion in last week’s explosive Alabama Supreme Court ruling that frozen embryos have the same rights as living children, recently appeared on a show hosted by self-anointed “prophet” and QAnon conspiracy theorist.

Parker was the featured guest on “Someone You Should Know,” hosted by Johnny Enlow, a Christian nationalist influencer and devoted supporter of former President Donald Trump. Over the course of an 11-minute interview, Parker articulated a theocratic worldview at odds with a functioning, pluralistic society.

“God created government,” he told Enlow, adding that it’s “heartbreaking” that “we have let it go into the possession of others.”

Where did God lose possession of government? If He is all powerful and all knowing, how did this theft happen? Modern nation States sprung from theories sprouted during the Renaissance and the Enlightenment. Doesn't sound very God-incubated any more than a test-tube is a human being.
