Alabama’s chief justice: The ‘pursuit of happiness’ means following the Bible

Published

on

The “pursuit of happiness” mentioned in the Declaration of Independence refers to following biblical teachings, according to Alabama’s chief justice.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness,” Roy Moore said Thursday at the Family Research Council’s Watchmen on the Wall event, reciting the Declaration of Independence.

The pursuit of happiness, he continued, did not mean “two cars and four television and five homes and a lot of food.”

“It’s laws of God, for he is so intimately connected, so inseparably interwoven the laws of eternal justice with the happiness of each individual that the latter cannot be obtained but by observing the former, and if the formerly be punctually abated it cannot help but induce the latter. You can’t help but be happy if you follow God’s law and if you follow God’s law, you can’t help but be happy,” Moore explained.
