The Human Rights Campaign has launched a petition which demands that Alabama take disciplinary action against state Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore:
Justice Moore has offered that the United States Constitution does not give the federal government the authority to regulate or define marriage. In the past, he has expressed his opinion that the state should have the power to punish homosexual behavior and has even authored a court opinion stating a parent’s sexual orientation should be grounds for a parent losing custody over their own children. It is time for his invidious actions against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people to stop. HRC refuses to remain silent when a figure who was appointed to implement the law accordingly and follow the rules decides to abuse their power. Please sign our petition below urging the Judicial Inquiry Commission to take action against Alabama State Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy S. Moore: he has acted unethically and overstepped his authority to the detriment of the people of Alabama — both straight and LGBT.
NOTE: Signing the petition will put you on HRC’s email list.
