Take A Stand With Chief Justice Roy Moore Against Anti-faith Attacks!
Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore has effectively been banned from the state Supreme Court as a result of a political attack by those who oppose his stand for biblical morals and the rule of law.
Chief Justice Moore is the target of unfounded complaints filed against him by the Southern Poverty Law Center ("SPLC"), People for the American Way, the Alabama Human Rights Campaign, atheists, and pro-homosexual activists. The group filed their complaints with the Alabama Judicial Inquiry Commission (JIC) calling for the principled Justice, who is an advocate of natural marriage, to be censured and removed from office.
The focus of the JIC charge is Chief Justice Moore's January 2016 Administrative Order, which was intended to clear up the judicial quagmire in the state following the U.S Supreme Court's decision to allow same-sex "marriage," which was counter to the Alabama Sanctity of Marriage law.
The Administrative Order of Chief Justice Moore expressly said he could not provide guidance to the probate judges on issuing same-sex "marriage" licenses because the matter was pending before the Alabama Supreme Court. Moore never ordered the probate judges to disregard the U.S. Supreme Court's marriage opinion, but that is the slanderous narrative of the JIC. The JIC apparently wanted the Chief Justice to openly disobey the Alabama Supreme Court and to take matters into his own hands.
On September 30, the JIC - lacking the votes to remove Chief Justice Moore from office - instead voted to suspend Justice Moore for the remainder of his term. Since there is no meaningful difference between suspension for the remainder of the term and removal from office, the COJ did what the rules say they cannot do! They threw out the rule of law in a blatantly politically motivated decision!
Liberty Counsel's legal team immediately filed an emergency appeal with the Alabama Supreme Court. We are calling for a new panel of judges to be convened to hear this case.
Liberty Counsel is now mounting a nationwide "I Stand With Chief Justice Moore" statement of support to rally citizens to stand with the Chief Justice against a rising tide of anti-faith bigotry.
