Judicial Impunity

   Chief Justice Roy Moore has once again stepped outside of his authority, and has issued a decree that no Probate Judge in the State of Alabama shall issue marriage licenses to any same sex couples. This dictate is in direct conflict with the ruling and subsequent clarification by A Federal District judge which struck down the amendment cited by Moore in his proclamation.

    These actions are not very surprising to anyone familiar with the history of Judge Moore. 12 years ago, The Honorable Moore, was removed from office for refusing to comply with a court order concerning a monument. He has repeatedly shown his personal, theocratic bias at every opportunity.  He has declared non Christians to be removed from the rights of the Constitution.  He equates gay marriage to the ultimate downfall of our society.

   He is the founder of the Foundation for Moral Law, but stepped down as its head when his wife and son took over concurrent to his election.  Hes has invoked his religion in his rulings and was removed from office for his refusal to remove a monument by court order.He also was criticized for opening his sessions with prayers directed at the jury pool.

   Judge Moore has shown, and continues to show his disregard for the rule of law. He refuses to be bound by the rules that form the stability of our legal system.  Roy Moore believes himself above the law, on par with only the law of his God.  He sees himself as some sort of mythological hero, destined to save the righteous from the vile, heretical hordes of Jews, Hindus, Atheists and Muslims.  He disregards any part of the legal frameworks that do not agree with his preconceived determination.  He uses the bench to promote his religion. He does this instead of and in conflict with the oath he swore and the authority he has been granted.

It is time for him to go, again. No more, Moore.

Here is a link to my petition to have him removed. I will deliver it to any group filing actions against him and any media outlet that would like to see how many people agree with his removal
