Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore Is Un-American
There is no way any reasonable person can disagree with me that Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore is a most dangerous and un-American citizen. There is just no other way to state the obvious.
My reason for stating this can be summed up in the pages of American Gospel by Jon Meacham. Read it and better come to understand the role religion must be viewed in our constitutional republic. This is no better or insightful read that I can offer which will allow the rank-and-file citizen the historical background we need to know and accept so to place the Roy Moore’s into context. (And then put them in their place.)
Today I am most pleased that Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore was suspended from the bench for telling probate judges to defy federal orders regarding gay marriage. There is no legal or ethical manner in which his actions can be defended.
If this were the first time this three-thumb character has acted against the laws of this land it would be bad enough. But it is the second time Moore has been removed from the chief justice job for defiance of federal courts – the first time in 2003 for refusing to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the state judicial building.
The Alabama Court of the Judiciary issued the order today suspending Moore from the bench for the remainder of his term after an unanimous vote of the nine-member court.
Can I hear a Hallelujah!
Amen brothers and sisters, you may be seated.
Today the words from the COJ were clear to all. “For these violations, Chief Justice Moore is hereby suspended from office without pay for the remainder of his term. This suspension is effective immediately. ”
The court found him guilty of all six charges of violation of the canons of judicial ethics. Moore’s term is to end in 2019, but because of his age, 69, he cannot run for the office again.
And again let us call out Hallelujah!
This is not the first time I have let it be known what I think of this ‘mental luminary’. In 2012 I made it clear as to why Moore should not have been elected.
After he was kicked off the bench this ‘mental luminary’ weighed into the arena concerning gay marriage and stated, “”same-sex marriages corrupts American society.”
I suspect given Moore’s background that in another era he would have owned slaves and found a biblical basis for beating them. That is the way with folks like Moore.
What makes Moore appear in a post on CP is that he is now thinking that he should again be chief justice, and thinks the voters might offer him another chance at mixing politics and religion which makes most level-headed people nervous.
If Moore thinks liberals do not understand the Constitution, let me assure him that his tortured reading of the Constitution and the supporting documents is mighty flawed both in terms of religion, and the right to privacy and gay marriage.
What I find most interesting is the split of opinion about Moore in Alabama from the business type Republicans, and the evangelical crowd. It is really amusing to watch oil and water try to mix. The mature crowd of business folks are tired of being tarred with ‘the stupid brush’ that comes from standing too close to Moore.
There is a tonic for that–vote against Moore!
What I find most galling about this man who wants to be chief justice of the court is the disdain he shows to the judiciary as a whole.
For instance, though Supreme Court has ruled on the national health care law Moore thinks the federal health mandate is still unconstitutional despite what the high court ruled. That really is quite ballsy.
Today Roy Moore was finished and now can–for all I care–go straight to hell.
