AL Supreme Ct Justice Urges Governor to Defy ‘Tyranny’ of Courts on Same-Sex ‘Marriage’

 

MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore, also known as the “Ten Commandments judge,” is urging Gov. Robert Bentley to defy the federal courts on the issue of same-sex “marriage” and uphold the state Constitution.

 

Moore sent a letter to Bentley on Tuesday following Friday’s ruling by U.S. District Judge Ginny Granade, which declared Alabama’s “Sanctity of Marriage Amendment” unconstitutional.

As you know, nothing in the United States Constitution grants the federal government the authority to redefine the institution of marriage,” he wrote, stating that the recent ruling raised “serious, legitimate concerns about the propriety of federal court jurisdiction over the Alabama Sanctity of Marriage Amendment.”

 

The amendment at issue, passed in 2006 with 81 percent of the vote, states that “[m]arriage is inherently a unique relationship between a man and a woman.”

 

“As a matter of public policy, this state has a special interest in encouraging, supporting, and protecting this unique relationship in order to promote, among other goals, the stability and welfare of society and its children,” it continues. “A marriage contracted between individuals of the same sex is invalid in this state...”

 

Today, the destruction of [marriage] is upon us by federal courts using specious pretexts based on the Equal Protection, Due Process and Full Faith and Credit Clauses of the United States Constitution,” he wrote in his letter to Bentley. “As of this date, 44 federal courts have imposed by judicial fiat same-sex marriages in 21 states of the Union, overturning the express will of the people in those states.”

 

Moore said that the issuance of marriage licenses to same-sex couples would be unlawful, and called upon Bentley uphold the state Constitution as he does the same as Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice.

 

“I ask you to uphold and support the Alabama Constitution with respect to marriage, both for the welfare of this state and for our posterity,” he urged. “Be advised that I will stand with you to stop judicial tyranny and any unlawful opinions issued without constitutional authority.”

 

“As Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, I will continue to recognize the Alabama Constitution and the will of the people as overwhelmingly expressed in the Sanctity of Marriage Amendment,” Moore said.”

The sanctity of biblical marriage is vitally important.   Much of the cultural downfall of our country can be linked to our nation's refusal to sanctify biblical marriage and the biblical family unit in their hearts and in our system of governance.  The biblical family unit is essential to the health of our nation.

On the follow up today, I'm not surprised to see the Southern Poverty Law Center “hate group” coming against the Supreme Court Justice.

 

Isa 5:20-21

(20) Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

(21) Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

Southern Poverty Law Center Files Judicial Ethics Complaint Against Ten Commandments Judge

 

MONTGOMERY, Ala. – The Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization that become notorious for creating its list of Christian “hate groups,” has filed a judicial ethics complaint against Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore after he sent a letter to Gov. Robert Bentley, asking that he uphold the state’s Sanctity of Marriage Amendment...

 

“As you know, nothing in the United States Constitution grants the federal government the authority to redefine the institution of marriage,” he wrote, stating that the recent ruling raised “serious, legitimate concerns about the propriety of federal court jurisdiction over the Alabama Sanctity of Marriage Amendment.”

 

Moore pointed to the Scriptures in his letter, as Jesus declared in Mark 10:6-9 that “from the beginning of creation God made them male and female, [and] for this cause, a man shall leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife, and they twain shall be one flesh.” He also noted a U.S. Supreme Court ruling from 1885, which was reiterated in 1908, which stated that the foundation for marriage and family is “the union for life of one man and one woman in the holy estate of matrimony...”

 

In addition to taking issue with Moore, the Southern Poverty Law Center has been known for compiling its list of what it calls “hate groups” due to their stand for biblical marriage, including Focus on the Family and Family Research Council among its over 1,000 listed organizations.

 

In 2012, Roy Corkins, who was arrested after entering the offices of Family Research Council with a loaded gun, numerous rounds of ammunition and over a dozen Chick-fil-A sandwiches, told the FBI that his planned massacre was motivated by the “hate group” list on the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) website...

 

“Let me be very clear here that Floyd Corkins was responsible for the wounding of one of our colleagues and friends at the Family Research Council,” he stated. “But, I believe he was given a license to do that by a group such as the Southern Poverty Law Center who labeled us a hate group because we defend the family and stand for traditional orthodox Christianity. … I think it’s time for people to realize what the Southern Poverty Law Center is doing with their reckless labeling of organizations they disagree with...”

SPLC is a hate group, maybe it should add itself to its list.

      Hi, I'm Rycee. I'm 20 years old, from the UK. This year's been pretty rough and I've been wanting to go to church for months, but reluctant to join one since I relocate a lot, so I thought I'd try this out instead. Any career/marriage advice is appreciated, thanks 🙂

      I would like to request prayer for a righteous resolution to a pending  divorce and yes children are involved.
      We ask for healing of confusion, hurt feelings,  misunderstandings,  and for  obedience to the Scriptures so that the marriage can remain intact and flourish for Gods glory.
      We wish to prevent the divorce and any custody issues. Help me to be the best husband to my wife and a great father to our children.

      Hi! I wanted to share this sermon by Pastor Nick Nilson called "A Message From The Future You". It is about having Biblically inspired relationships, and not compromising the vision God has put in you. It was a real eye opener for me, and I'm hoping to will help someone today. God bless!!
