Roy Moore, that wacknut Alabama State Supreme Court Chief Justice has put on his anti-gay hat again last week and ordered all probate judges in the state to stop issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples because … gay. But maybe he has a bigger agenda than just being a hater and a homophobe who cannot obey the law of the land.
Moore first came to the national news spotlight back in 2001 when, after being elected Alabama State Supreme Court Chief Justice, he commissioned a 5,280 pound granite monument of the Ten Commandments and placed it in front of the State Supreme Court building.
He was ordered to remove it — that whole Separation of Church and State thing — but refused; he fought the battle, twice, in federal court and lost yet he still refused to remove the monument. So Roy Moore was removed from office by the only means possible: the Alabama Court of the Judiciary ruled "Chief Justice Moore has violated the Alabama Canons of Judicial Ethics."
The bad news? Despite his attacks on the rights of same-sex couples in Alabama, despite his failure to follow the rule of law enacted by the United States Supreme Court, Roy Moore cannot be impeached.
The good news? When his current six-year term expires in 2018, Moore will be 71 years old, and over the legal age limit to run again.
"Roy Moore is running for governor."
So, is that your fate, Alabama? You’ll elect the former wacknut justice on your Supreme Court, who was removed from office for trying to mash his religion with the law, and give him even more power as your governor?
Is that what you want, Alabama? You want crazy in charge?
