Roy Moore
Roy Moore has donned his black judicial robes once again. For many, the one bright spot on the November elections was the election of Roy Moore to the office of Chief Justice in the Alabama Supreme Court. After being removed from office as Chief Justice in 2003 for publicly acknowledging the authority of the God of the Bible over our legal institutions with Ten Commandments monument, his re-election represents a vindication of what he stood for, and hundreds of his supporters showed up Friday afternoon to witness his swearing in ceremony and celebrate. The state supreme court judicial building’s courtroom, the same room where the Chief Justice had been removed from office nine years ago, contrary to the Constitution, was the setting for the ceremony, and it was a packed courtroom with standing room only.

“It was right then to acknowledge God,” Moore said. “And it will continue to be so.”

The Chief Justice of Alabama touched on familiar themes to those who have followed his career during a speech after being sworn in as chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court today. He quoted scripture and said the basis of the judicial system was laid out in the Old Testament book of Deuteronomy. He quoted Madison and Washington and talked about the importance of acknowledging God.

“We’ve got to remember that most of what we do in court comes from some scripture or is backed by scripture,” Moore said. “I’m proud to join this court. I think it’s a good court. I think this court is poised to make a difference, not only in our state but in our nation. Alabama has always led our nation. We’ve led in civil liberty, the restoration of civil liberty. We’ve led in religious liberty. We’ve led in state’s rights. And most recently, we’ve led in college football the last four years.”
