that are new to birth order theory you should know
that all birth orders have both
positive and negative characteristics. A trait thought by some to be positive
may be negative to someone else. Every birth order has these two aspects. A look at Judge Roy Moore’s birth order will allow you to see him more clearly.
Moore was born February 11, 1947, the eldest of
five children. Jerry his next
younger sibling turned 69 this year
so the boys were very close in age. His
next younger siblings
were Nancy 1953, Michael 1956, and Toni 1959. Their
Roy Baxter Moore was a farmer and construction worker. A
disciplinarian, the children wished for the hickory stick
rather than his
hour-long lectures. The family was so poor that
they didn’t have indoor
plumbing until Roy’s senior year in
high-school. His mother said, “Roy was a
studious child. I
never got any trouble out of that boy, he’s always loved
to church.He never went outside.
I’d find him studying in his
room at 3am in the morning. Kids used to make fun
”Moore worked various jobs during his school years from
vegetables, to stock boy, to lunchroom worker. He
graduated in 1965 with straight A’s having also played on the
football team and won election as
president of the student
government. After graduation he won an appointment to the
U.S. Military Academy at West Point.
Firstborn Birth Oder
Roy is the
firstborn; this is the child that likes to enforce the
family rules.There is a lot of pressure on this position
succeed in anything they do. Failure is not an option as it
has a direct
effect on their ego. Many firstborns drop out if
the pressure is too great. They
also have to protect their
throne from the next younger sibling.Firstborns are already
ahead of their
siblings in school; this leaves only athletics
for the younger sibling to
create his identity in the family.
Roy seems to have taken this opportunity
away from his
sibling rival. Working and studying didn’t give Roy much
a social life.His religious upbringing
put this aspect of his life on the back burner or ignored,
socially inept. Firstborns believe that they know
what is right, and love to
give orders to others.

rule enforcer. He got stronger
as he survived intimidation
by the underclassmen. He was seen as very
and intolerant of people with different points of view.
in 1971 Captain Moore took command of the
188th Company, 504th
Battalion supervising a military
stockade. He says he was “shocked” by the lack
discipline and set about to correct this. The soldiers under
called him “Captain America,” not as a
compliment. He recalls sleeping on
sandbags so his own
men wouldn’t take the opportunity to roll a grenade under
his cot as his men had threatened him with fragging.
from Vietnam he entered the Alabama Law
School and graduated in 1977. His first
job was deputy
district attorney for Etowah County. He ran for Circuit

He moved to Texas and learned the skill of kickboxing.

traveled to Australia and worked
on a cattle ranch for a

“We must return God to our public
life and restore the

difficulty admitting they did anything wrong.
The Real Roy Moore

was founded upon God. It is
the fallen nature of man that the
Constitution meant to restrain. It appears in
his quest for rules
that he feels he is enforcing the rules of God and therefore
cannot be wrong. This may have blinded him to leave any
room for rational
argument. The voters of Alabama will make
the call. Roy would leave it in the
hands of God.
