Alabama Judicial Inquiry Commission at Fault for Politically-Motivated Charges Against Chief Justice Roy Moore, Says Local Organization

/ -- Sanctity of Marriage Alabama faulted the Alabama Judicial Inquiry Commission (JIC) Thursday for acting on politically-motivated complaints and filing unfounded charges against Chief Justice Roy Moore which resulted in temporary suspension from office on May 6, 2016.
"Chief Justice Moore has violated no federal court order and has done nothing wrong," Tom Ford, spokesperson for Sanctity of Marriage Alabama said. "The charges levied by the J.I.C. were the result of politically-motivated complaints fueled by transvestite Ambrosia Starling and organizations such as the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the Human Rights Campaign out of hatred for God and morality. We find in the charges no basis for suspension or further review. All six charges should be immediately dropped and this political travesty be brought to a halt."
Each of the charges against the Chief Justice are based on his administrative order from January 6, 2016 – issued constitutionally within his administrative capacity as head of the judicial system and stating what were the legal and procedural realities in Alabama at that time. If the Alabama Supreme Court had believed that the Chief Justice's administrative order was inappropriate, it could have rescinded it, which it did not.
Ford continued, "The charges are prefaced by nothing short of a witch hunt, and are an attempt to paint a factual administrative order as an ethics violation. The J.I.C. has capitulated to the politically correct agenda of the radical Left and has essentially communicated that a conflict with their 'personal beliefs' about marriage, the Constitution, or the scope of judicial review can result in ethics charges against any Alabama judge. This should concern all of us.
"Chief Justice Moore has been a courageous champion for marriage and the rule of law and it's no surprise those who hate or refuse to stand for both have engaged in a coup to take him down," said Ford.
Sanctity of Marriage Alabama expects elected officials and pastors to publicly stand with Chief Justice Roy Moore recognizing that even as he stands for God's truth, for marriage, and for the law, he has done nothing to deserve these charges or suspension from his position.
Supporters of the Chief Justice, conservative organizations across the State, churches, and elected officials will rally at the Heflin-Torbert Judicial Building in Montgomery on Saturday, May 21st, 2016 from 11:00am – 12:00 noon. www.iStandWithJudgeMoore.com
