Alabama Judge Faces Removal Over Opposition to Gay Marriage
By the Staff at AFP —
Suspended Alabama Chief Justice Roy Stewart Moore has once again found himself in the crosshairs of the cultural Marxists determined to impose their anti-Christian, homosexual agenda on the rest of America.
Last Friday, six charges were filed by the Alabama Judicial Inquiry Commission against Moore for his public opposition to homosexual marriage and his determination not to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Alabama. The charges were filed with the Court of the Judiciary. Moore has 30 days to respond to the charges, at which point the Court of the Judiciary will respond to the complaints and either dismiss the case or, as was done in the past, discipline or even remove Moore from the bench.
In 2003, Moore caused controversy when he refused to remove a monument of the Ten Commandments from the Alabama Judicial Building in Montgomery, the state capital, despite a federal court order to do so. Moore appealed the decision to the United States Supreme Court, which refused to hear his case. He was shortly thereafter removed from office as chief justice only to be reinstated in 2013.
Moore has the support of the majority of citizens and elected officials in his state. Alabama has a long history of opposition to homosexual marriage. In 1996, Alabama Governor Forrest Hood “Fob” James, Jr. issued an executive order outlawing homosexual marriage as well as the recognition of same-sex marriages performed in other states. Two years later, both houses of the Alabama legislature voted overwhelmingly to ban homosexual marriage in the state, and the bill was signed into law. In 2006, the Alabama legislature once again voted overwhelmingly in favor of Amendment 774, which amended the state constitution banning homosexual marriage. The constitutional amendment was later endorsed by 81% of Alabama voters.
In June 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that denying marriage licenses and rights to same-sex couples is unconstitutional, thus paving the way for homosexual marriage to be imposed on all states, including Alabama. In response, many counties in Alabama have refused to issue marriage licenses and certificates to anyone.
The recent complaints leveled against Moore come at the behest of the Montgomery-based Southern Poverty Law Center, which has targeted the honorable chief justice in the past. Ambrosia Starling, a deranged drag queen, has also made a public spectacle of the situation, organizing a rally and protest against Moore in January on the steps of the Alabama Supreme Court building. Moore has publicly called out Starling on multiple occasions recently, and stated that drag queens, transgendered individuals, and homosexuals would have been classified as having a mental disorder in the past.
As this newspaper recently reported, the federal government is increasing its efforts to impose its anti-Christian, homosexual agenda all across America, despite opposition from local and state governments.
The U.S. Justice Department has sued the state of North Carolina over a state law recently passed prohibiting individuals from utilizing bathrooms not corresponding to their biological sex. The federal government has argued that the state law violates the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and apparently believes gender is a social construct rather than a biological reality.
The cultural Marxist madness being imposed on America shows no signs of abating.
