Remove Judge Roy Moore for Putting His Religion Above the Constitution
Judge Roy Moore is the Chief Justice of the state of Alabama, but he apparently has no clue how the Constitution works. He has issued an order PROHIBITING lower-court judges from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples – ignoring the clear ruling of the U.S. Supreme Court!
“Until further decision by the Alabama Supreme Court, the existing orders of the Alabama Supreme Court that Alabama probate judges have a ministerial duty not to issue any marriage licenses contrary to the Alabama Sanctity of Marriage Amendment or the Alabama Marriage Protection Act remain in full force and effect” -Chief Justice Roy Moore, 1/6/16
This decision flies in the face of the law and the Constitution, and Justice Moore must be removed from the bench for putting his personal opinion above the law – and having the gall to ORDER other Alabama judges to do the same.
And this isn't the first time he has defied the Supreme Court on marriage equality. He earlier argued that he could ignore it because the US is a "Christian" nation, and the laws of God supersede the rulings of the Supreme Court. This is pattently absurd, and flies in the face of what the Constitution's framers put right in the Contitution for all to see.
Moore must resign immediately, or he must be removed from the bench. A judge cannot hold a state hostage to his religious beliefs, and he certainly cannot defy the Constitution itself.
Moore was removed once before from this job, back in 2003, for similar actions. Sign your name, and demand he be removed again:
"Judge Roy Moore must resign immediately or be removed from the bench."
