Roy Moore, Alabama Supreme Court chief justice, suspended for opposing gay marriage ruling

by
May 9, 2016

Roy Moore, the chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, was suspended on Friday for opposing the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges, which struck down state laws defining marriage as the union between one man and one woman.

The Alabama Judiciary Inquiry Commission levied six charges against Mr. Moore, alleging he violated ethical rules by attempting to stop probate judges from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. The complaint prompted an immediate suspension, and the chief justice now faces a potential hearing before the Alabama Court of the Judiciary.

Mr. Moore on Friday said the JIC has no authority to levy the charges.

“The Judicial Inquiry Commission has no authority over the Administrative Orders of the Chief Justice of Alabama or the legal injunction of the Alabama Supreme Court prohibiting judges from issuing same-sex marriage licenses,” Mr. Moore said in a statement.

    This same-sex-marriage thing is getting out of hand! What I see is that there is an effort to create a third type of human being. If I remember right; in my religious upbringing we wer told of the creation of Adam and Eve. Adam was the man and Eve, made from Adams Rib, was the woman. Granted these werr the only two beings (outside of God and the Devil) I read nothing of them choosing to be the opposite sex. Did anyone read it differently? So, then, why is it now so? Whatever sexual tendencies may be does not equate to bodies being different. The people who are trying to change this better come up with a better reason than one has to base their genetic make-up to what’;s inside rather than what’s on the outside. Those in government are not God; though we are told we are made in his image, I dont’ think that meant that mankind was to be a choice of nomenclature rather than the physical description of each.
    If someone wants to be the opposite sex due to whatever they believe, then they make that choice. But to force anyone, let alone everyone to mix the sexes so they can go to the bathrooms that their mind tells them should be where they belong; think again! What your bedroom and bathrom antics your business. But to flaunt them and create a special case in a public toilet facility is not acceptable as far as I am concerned. To push others to bend to their or the government’s wishes is not acceptable to the majority of human beings on this planet, let along this country! I would be tempted to pee on a woman who dare show her face in a mens facility. And would encourage the same on the woman’s side! If God wanted to allow a mixed condition like this, I would have believed God would have given the same sets to both. What you then didn’t need you could dissassemble from your body. Sounds stupid doesn’t it. So does forcing the majority of people to accept and allow this moronic vjew. I wonder how many Democratic-Socialists are homosexuals? I wonder how many Republican RINO’s are as well? No one with a logical mind would want to do such a thing! This is another case of political AH’s create another issue to throw at the majoruity of Americans.
    I don’t know about any one else, but I believe in my right of freedom of choice and my choice is that men in a man’s body use the men’s room adn women in a woman’s body use the women’s bathrooms. When I found out that Target Stores were directed to implement the new rules governing the use of bathrooms for homosexuals, I notified the manager of my local store trhat I would not come back to Target until the owners changed this new piece of crap back to normal use. I also contacted the Corporate Offices as well. Public Relations with the same statement. The one thing that these stores may not consider is that pervers might take advantage of this for their own purposes. Or is this even a concern to the owners? Time will tell.

    Judge Moore should be our next appointed and confirmed Supreme Court justice! NOW! It is amazing how PC BS is attempting to ruin America and our rights! Rise up Americans before we all wind up in a civil war!

      I think this is Obama’s plan, he likes that big OLE house, if U know what I mean!!

    As I see it, Biblically, homosexuality is a sin. It seems that this may be why such an effort to destroy Christian religions is occurring at this time. It seems that many religious acts are being attacked by those who do not support any relitious view. It appears that there is a major effort to destroy religions, starting with the Christian/Catholic ones first. I seriously doubt that others will be exempted in the future. One group at a time. One religion, Judaism, may be affected due to the Kol Nidre that they are supposed to follow, which is renewed every year when celebrating Yom Kippur. What is being said though, is that they follow the religious portion. What it doesn’t say is that they can pass over it when it rellates to business or government issues. As the document written by H. J. Campbell explains what they can omit or avoid is the things we expect to be followed regarding our lives (all of them). This government that is supposed to be ours no longer exists, thanks to the 49th Congress who sold us out to the British because of the financial debt incurred during the Civil War. In summary, they sold out the American People by selling or giving, depending on your views, the land we call Washington D.C.. to the British. This was confirmed recently by Queen Elizabeth II in an interview she gave to the press. The actions of the 49th Congress was unknown by the American People of the time. So no one knew what was happening to us. The effects of that action has done to us what no other action before or after has; make us part of a PRIVATE corporation without OUR consent!
    The question I present here is that can they do this without our consent and can we rescind that action as a people? I don’t expect that Congress would be willing to do so on their own. Too many of them are a part of this effort to destabilize us and determine for us how this will be into the future. Those culpable are the Socialists on both sides of the aisle. What they are promoting today is going in the direction of a one-world government. We are a stumbling block to that (that’s we the People) as we, if smart enough, would not go for it! Today we are threatened with the inviting of UN Troops into our country; along with the immigration of middle eastern people of which many would be Muslims. What does that do for our own military defenses?
    The question that haunts me is that if the People of that time had not known what was being done and had not voted to allow it to occur, would it still be legal? Who signed that authority to do this? The President or the Secretary of State? If the People were not a part of the process, then can we today take action to reverse the creation of the Corporation? As far as I am concierned, they acted against our Constitution as to their performing such an act and that we should have the power to reverse it today. Not through Congress but throught other legal means to take back our country. Let us recognize that Barrack H. Obama is NOT OUR PRESIDENT! He is the President of THE UNITED ( or JEWNITED) STATES OF AMERICA CORPORATION, a private corporation not validated by the People of the unites States of America. In other words, without OUR consent, they created a fictional corporation, and that we now need to see it dissolved and also create a new site for the return of America to the People of this nation! And in doing so, electing a president of, by and for the American People! In doing so, we then re-establish the three branches of government and electing NEW representatives who answer to the People! This now also gives us the opportunity to set rules to limit the terms of office to both the House and Senate, thus avoiding retirement benefits to them. It has been proven that we cannot allow them to become lifetime retirees on our dime. By cancelling the CORPORATION, we also cancel all debts and actions created by them in our name.
    I ask as to what this existing CORPORATION is operating by? We know that Obama is the president of this CORPORATION. But who is the Chairman of the Board and who are the members of the Board of Directors? That is the structure of most corporations. Are they the ones who are behind the scenes as what I term the puppeteers? Are they the current Board of Directors? Are the executive orders being issued by the President being approved by this “Board”?

  • Rodney Steward

    Judge Moore is right, the JIC has no authority to make these charges, this is a state matter! And you’re right 7papa7, he would be a great addition to the SCOTUS, and he’s also the same Judge that the Gov. removed the 10 commandments on a large stone in front of the courthouse! And by the way, can anyone find in the Constitution where it says anything at all about the separation of Church and State!!

    • sue lenhart

      Are you on Twitter? Can you tweet a suggestion to Donald Trump to nominate Roy Moore to the Supreme Court? I am not on Twitter, or I would do it myself. 7papa7 is not on social media, either.

      • Rodney Steward

        NO, I don’t twitter or face book or anything other than what we’re doing here, I don’t even use a cell phone! 🙂

    • 7papa7

      You are right on the money. He was fired for his stance on the 10 commandments but the people voted him back in. The separation of Church and state was in a private letter from President Jefferson to the Danbury Baptists. See below:

      Jefferson’s Letter to the Danbury Baptists

      The Final Letter, as Sent

      To messers. Nehemiah Dodge, Ephraim Robbins, & Stephen S. Nelson, a committee of the Danbury Baptist association in the state of Connecticut.

      Gentlemen

      The affectionate sentiments of esteem and approbation which you are so good as to express towards me, on behalf of the Danbury Baptist association, give me the highest satisfaction. my duties dictate a faithful and zealous pursuit of the interests of my constituents, & in proportion as they are persuaded of my fidelity to those duties, the discharge of them becomes more and more pleasing.

      Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should “make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,” thus building a wall of separation between Church & State. Adhering to this expression of the supreme will of the nation in behalf of the rights of conscience, I shall see with sincere satisfaction the progress of those sentiments which tend to restore to man all his natural rights, convinced he has no natural right in opposition to his social duties.

      I reciprocate your kind prayers for the protection & blessing of the common father and creator of man, and tender you for yourselves & your religious association, assurances of my high respect & esteem.

      Th Jefferson

      Jan. 1. 1802.

      • Rodney Steward

        That was GREAT!!!!!

        • 7papa7

          thanks

      • BillB

        And that wall Jefferson referred to was one that prohibited the government from ever having any say in how Americans worship or where!

        • Rodney Steward

          BINGO!!

        • 7papa7

          That is true and it was also one direction, the government was to stay out of religion but religion was to dominate government. Also if you research it you find that the word religion at this time meant any Christian religion.

          • BillB

            You are correct and I am very aware of that! Thanks for the reply.

          • 7papa7

            I enjoy communicating with intelligent people. It stretches me and I hope them.

  • itsfun

    That is how the tolerant left works. As long as you agree with them, they are tolerant and respect anything and everything you do. But, if you disagree, then the tolerant left will do everything and anything to destroy you, your family and everyone that agrees with you.

  • 7papa7

    Once again Judge Moore is right and those against him are wrong. Support Judge Moore. Boy would he be a great high court nominee. He would very adequately fill the shoes of Judge Scalia who was most probably murdered.

    • sue lenhart

      Great idea! Since Mr. Trump is our presumptive nominee, it would probably be best to have someone send him a tweet on Twitter, making that suggestion. Since I am not on Twitter, someone else will have to do it. Any brave souls out there?

      • 7papa7

        That is a very good idea. I would do it but I am not on any social media sites.

    • Harvey Thomas Creech

      I was with you about Judge Moore until I read the last part of your last sentence. You sorta invalidate your stance(with me)by bringing up conspiracy theories about Justice Scalia. I assume you are a Christian conservative. We don’t do ourselves any favors with the media and the Left by touting conspiracy theories.

      • 7papa7

        The fact that he may have been murder is an opinion that I base on much of what I have read about his death. Far to much just doesn’t make sense and I think needs to be checked out is all. He was never looked at by the coroner. My question is how did he die. Those who saw him said he looked very peaceful so that eliminates a heart attack because they are quite painful. Had he been seen by an ME who actually saw him and checked him out it would be done and done but the ME never saw him and just took the opinion of the police who were on site. I am just saying have someone like an ME or someone qualified actually find the cause of death. If that is a conspiracy theory then so be it.

        • Harvey Thomas Creech

          I live in North Carolina. We have an ongoing problem with medical examiners not showing up on scene after someone dies of an ‘unexplained’ death. An official autopsy of course can be ordered in the event of an accidental death, shooting, suspected suicide, etc. Sounds like Texas may have similar regulations about death ‘investigations’ to NC. So I would not automatically jump to a conspiracy theory. It is tragic that Justice Scalia is not on the SC to provide that balance. I am with those who want to wait until the next President is elected to nominate and appoint a replacement for Scalia(hopefully a conservative Constitutionalist.)

          • BillB

            In the army I worked with our pathologist and assisted with autopsies. He trained me and allowed me to do 80% of the autopsy under his supervision. It is very easy for a pathologist to confirm heart attack as cause of death, as well as most causes of death. I live in Texas and am familiar with the place he died. There should have been an automatic autopsy due to whom died and the somewhat questionable circumstances. End of story!

            Oh yes, Judge Moore should be the next SCOTUS justice! (see post above)

          • 7papa7

            That is a sad commentary on the quality of ME. The only reason that the ME didn’t show up for Saclia is that it was so far away so the police made the call and not the professional. I wouldn’t call it conspiracy how I feel about this just very cautious about it. I would say it if anyone were in that circumstance not because he was a high court justice. I absolutely agree with you about the need for a conservative Constitutionalist. That is why I am so pro Moore. I would also like to see Mark Levin even though he is not a judge but a lawyer who is probably more knowledgeable than at least half of the court now. I also like Louie Gohmert who was a judge. Those would probably be my top 3.

          • Harvey Thomas Creech

            Thanks for agreeing with me about the need for a conservative Constitutionalist in the Supreme Court. It’s so refreshing to hear after the daily attacks by the irrational Trump supporters.

          • 7papa7

            It is the only hope for the survival of America as it was set up to be. As the court has moved further left the country has degraded into what we now have. With judges like Scalia he at least had the ability to slow the decline of America.
