ALABAMA: Roy Moore’s Hate Group Says Federal Court Has No Jurisdiction To Enforce SCOTUS Ruling

Yesterday a federal court issued a permanent injunction barring Alabama officials from defying the Supreme Court on same-sex marriage. This afternoon Roy Moore’s Foundation For Moral Law issued a typical response. Via press release:

Foundation President Kayla Moore noted, “Judge Granade’s jurisdiction extends over only the Southern District of Alabama. She has no authority to bind officials in other parts of the State.” She added, “It’s not over just because Judge Granade says it’s over. In fact, her order acknowledges that the Alabama Supreme Court’s March 4, 2016 order denying the parties’ motions and petitions did not vacate or set aside the Court’s March 3, 2015 writ of mandamus directing probate judges to follow the Alabama Constitution. That’s what we’ve been saying all along.”

Foundation Senior Counsel John Eidsmoe stated further, “Much more than same-sex marriage is at stake here; this involves the whole federal versus state relationship in our constitutional system. The Obergefell decision was procured by illegitimate means because two Justices who had personally performed same-sex marriages refused to recuse, and it is utterly devoid of constitutional support. Article VI, Section 2 says the Constitution, federal laws, and federal treaties are the supreme law of the land; it says nothing of federal court decisions. Nothing in the Constitution says every federal, state, and local official has to march to the beat of a federal judge’s drum, no matter how erratic that drumbeat may be.”

Kayla Moore, of course, is Roy Moore’s wife.

PREVIOUSLY ON JMG: In 2014 John Eidsmoe filed a SCOTUS brief which demanded that Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Elena Kagan recuse themselves from all marriage cases. In 2011 Eidsmoe called for Congress to have “ex-gay” torture provided to the US military. That same year he declared that gay service members will molest children. He has also said that all women must submit to their husbands and that the United States must impose biblical laws and punishments or else the nation is doomed. Eidsmoe, NOT incidentally, was Michele Bachmann’s professor at Oral Roberts University.

    This really is antebellum thinking.

    Roy, honey, we (thankfully) lost the Civil War. Let it go. Move on. See if you can force yourself let go of your Gone With the Wind fantasy and learn to live in the real world with the rest of us.

          • Joseph Miceli

            Not only that, but Jesus was a virgin birth. That’s parthenogenesis which results in two xx sex chromosomes. Jesus, however, identified as a man. The Evil Sky Fairy sure is inconsistent with the messaging.

            I sometimes check to make sure the person who has posted the piece on YouTube isn’t a nutcase, and that the comments aren’t by crazies.

            I thought this was a beautiful rendition, and didn’t notice the absence of women in the orchestra. (The only person I much noticed was the conductor.)

            Honestly, what EXCUSE is there, anymore, for not having even ONE woman in a modern symphony orchestra??

          • Edward von Behrer

            Most major symphony orchestras audition without seeing the player who is behind a screen and who conveys any questions for the judges through a 3rd party. Sex, race and all that do not enter into the selection process. I would rather have an orchestra made up of the 100 best possible players than an orchestra made up X number of men, X number of women, X number of this race or that race. The Vienna Philharmonic does, indeed, have women members, though the NY TIMES has started jumping up and down that there are not enough Asian players in it to suit the NY TIMES. Despite all this the Vienna Phil. is still considered one of the very top orchestras in the world (for some it IS the top orchestra and has been for decades), despite not having the politically correct number of both sexes, all races, blahs, blah. And you are right, this is a fantastic performance, one that cannot be touched by any US orchestra.

          • another_steve

            I assume social scientists have dissected this subject to pieces. The male-to-female ratio among professional symphony orchestras.

            Historically, women were conditioned to make music to please mommy and daddy and attract the attentions of a male suitor. Not to make a career out of it. The making of it a career is probably a relatively recent development for women.

            Only guessing here. I’m not a social scientist.

          • billbear1961

            I read something not long ago that said, thanks largely to Europeans coming to the States to conduct and teach, that there are many U.S. orchestras today on a par with their European brothers and sisters, and that, sadly, some European orchestras were beginning to slip.

            It sounds like exactly the right way to do auditions! But it really does surprise me that so few women make it through this process in Vienna.

          • MusicBear88

            Vienna Philharmonic has always been a men’s club. About a decade ago, the Austrian government told them that if they didn’t start having blind auditions like other orchestras and admitting women, they would lose their government funding. They made the decision to stay as they were and are now privately funded.

            The Boston Symphony was the first orchestra to employ the blind audition policy. It wasn’t long before they noticed that women were being hired much more often, and they even had their first female principal player, the flutist Doriot Anthony Dwyer, who still thinks that if she didn’t have an odd name, she never would have gotten an audition.

  • Joseph Miceli

    Nothing in the mother fucking Constitution says that any Supreme Court Justice is required to recuse for conflict of interest and these bigots know it. If that were the case every dirty decision touched by Antonin “Weekend at the Lobbyists” Scalia and Uncle Clarence “Just Take Care of Jinny” Thomas would be vacated.
    A Supreme Court Justice should avoid the appearance of impropriety, but it is unamusing how that standard is only bemoaned when applied to Progressives.
    Follow the fucking law or get ready for the Feds to enforce it!

    • billbear1961

      Hear, HEAR!!

    • There have been cases where a justice recused him/herself, most recently Elena Kagan who had actually worked on the case much earlier in the process. Of course she did the ethical thing and stepped aside. You are right about Scalia and Thomas, both of whom took bribes. Scalia died while on an expensive trip paid for by someone with business before the court.

      • Joseph Miceli

        So, once again the only ethical behavior is that exhibited by the Lefties. What a surprise !!!

    • lizdhm

      The issue before the court wasn’t whether same sex marriages were good or bad, but whether states had the authority to ban them. The justices performed the marriages in Maryland, where equality was implemented by popular vote, and DC where it was done by legislation. There would only be a conflict of interest if they had performed them in states where the bans had been struck down by the federal courts. Which they did not do.

      No conflict of interest whatsoever.

      • lattebud

        And I am sure those other judges performed straight marriages and were also tainted and should recuse themselves.

    • teeveedub

      Agreed. It’s the same kind of bullshit Trump is trying to use against Judge Curiel. Trump himself can make all kinds of bloviating noise about it, but if there were truly a reason to move for recusal, his attorneys would have done it. And they haven’t, because they know they can be sanctioned for making a motion to recuse without solid legal footing.

    • Ninja0980

      Indeed, if one wants to see a real conflict of interest, Roy Moore doesn’t have any further to look then his own court, where fellow Justice Tom Parker refuses to recuse himself from hearing cases the FOFT hate group for Alabama, the Alabama Policy Council brings to them.
      Might not be a big deal other then the fact he is the co-founder of said hate group, which means he really shouldn’t be hearing cases they bring to the court.
      But of course, Moore and others ignore that.
      As you said, only Progressives have to recuse themselves, not conservatives.

    • Chris Baker

      A justice could believe that same-sex marriage was not a federal constitutional right, but a state’s decision, and perform a SSM in a state where it is legal. The question before the court was not “can gays get married” but “can SSM be barred in certain states without violating rights under the federal constitution”

      • Joseph Miceli

        Your point is moot. The question is not same sex marriage but Arcticle Iv, Clause 2, the “Supremacy Clause.”
        A justice could believe anything he wants, once the Supremes have spoken it is the law of the land.

        • Chris Baker

          I was referring to the recusal issue. The justices who performed the marriage ceremonies were doing something that was legal, and the question before the court was not whether SSM should be allowed in the states, but whether it was a federal right. (Not that i don’t believe that judges can hold opinions, and yet be impartial).

    “The Obergefell decision was procured by illegitimate means because two Justices who had personally performed same-sex marriages refused to recuse, and it is utterly devoid of constitutional support.”

    Really, Dudes? This is the best you’ve got? Did Scalia ever recuse himself from any cases involving the Bush administration even though he went hunting with Cheney?
    Shut the hell up!

    • If justices had to recuse themselves whenever they had a well-known opinion on a point of law to be decided, we wouldn’t have any justices left to hear the case half the time! That’s not a conflict of interest. A conflict of interest is when one of the parties gave your wife $100k that you “forgot” to report on your income taxes.

        For one thing, where the same-sex weddings were performed, it was perfectly LEGAL, recognized by LAW where they were performed.

        For another, Scalia and Thomas never made any secret of their opposition to the ACA, but did NOT recuse themselves from cases dealing with it. The same can be said of their opposition to marriage equality, and Thomas has had PHOTOS taken of himself with anti-LGBT activists.

    OT: Not at all sure how I feel about this one!

    P.S. I think legal decisions about bestiality and Roy Moore belong together.

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/bestiality-supreme-court-canada-1.3624312?cmp=rss

    The Supreme Court of Canada has upheld the acquittal of a British Columbia man in a decision that defines the crime of bestiality as penetration involving a person and animal.

    The B.C. man was found guilty three years ago of 13 counts arising from years of sexual molestation of his two step-daughters.

    The charges included one count of bestiality under the Criminal Code, stemming from sexual activity involving the older girl and the family dog.

    The man successfully challenged the bestiality conviction in the B.C. Court of Appeal based on the fact the activity did not involve penetration. (The man cannot be named to protect the identities of the step-daughters.)

    In a 6-1 decision Thursday, the Supreme Court affirmed that ruling, rejecting the notion bestiality is an offence encompassing sexual activity of any kind between a person and an animal.

    “The term ‘bestiality’ has a well-established legal meaning and refers to sexual intercourse between a human and an animal. Penetration has always been understood to be an essential element of bestiality,” wrote Justice Thomas Cromwell on behalf of the court.

    “Parliament may wish to consider whether the present provisions adequately protect children and animals. But it is for Parliament, not the courts, to expand the scope of criminal liability for this ancient offence.”

    In a dissenting opinion, Justice Rosalie Abella said she had a great deal of difficulty accepting that in modernizing amendments to the Criminal Code, “Parliament forgot to bring the offence out of the Middle Ages.”

    A good case can be made that by 1988, Parliament intended, or at the very least assumed, that penetration was irrelevant, she wrote.

    • Joseph Miceli

      This is such a “male centered” point of view, that sex only occurs if penetration is involved. Look at the hullaballo here in the states with Stanford Rape case. One argument for leniency is that it wasn’t “real” rape because his penis never penetrated her.
      I beg to differ. Just because there is not penetration does not mean rape did not occur. I think some laws need to be changed.

      • Reality.Bites

        Our laws on sexual assault of humans do not require penetration.

        In the criminal code of Canada, bestiality itself is not defined, but has always been considered by the courts to mean anal or vaginal intercourse with an animal.

        I imagine the government might get around to it during the next major revision of the code, but I wouldn’t expect them to make it a priority.

        The section on anal intercourse needs to be removed in its entirety.

    • Jay George

  • well of course they only listen to SCOTUS…but then they do not even do that and then they only listen if they are specifically listed in the ruling….but then they do not even do that. lets cut to the chase, there is no court ruling that they would ever accept that would legalize same sex marriage. they will always claim it was illegitimate for one reason or another. these people are fully in denial of how our court system works.

    • I suspect, if you dug a little bit, you’d find that they’d feel bound to follow a ruling by the Supreme Court of the Confederate States of America.

  • on a side note the idea that Justices that performed same sex marriages must reuse themselves is absurd. that a justice officiates a same sex marriage in a jurisdiction in which it is legal does not mean that they will rule that all justification must let same sex couples get married. also using their logic any justice that ruled agasint decriminalizing homosexuality should have also rescued themselves as they also would have been biased in the case. they have ZERO argument, they are just grasping at excuses to not recognize the Courts ruling on this.

    • Using their logic, no judge in this country would be able to hear any case.

    And if the ruling had been in his favor, would he be singing the same tune? What a tool.

    • why of course not, if the courts do what they want then they have no objection. but if they do not do what they want then the entire thing is legitimate and must be ignored. they have no consistent position on the courts or their role in the US, it is all just what ever works for them at the moment.

  • coram nobis

    They’re being grotesque. Sure, it’s one Federal district. But what one Federal district within a state does, the other district(s) are apt to follow, even if it’s not binding. The other side need only tell the other district judge, if it comes to that, “Well, Your Honor, the ruling is in something F.Supp. something, and we move for summary judgment.” And in any event, the 11th Circuit could hand down a ruling on this case in short order, if it’s settled law.

    This is EXACTLY what I said would happen (earlier today) when the Federal Court issued their permanent injunction. (see http://www.joemygod.com/2016/06/09/alabama-federal-court-issues-permanent-injunction-barring-state-from-enforcing-gay-marriage-ban/ ) A comment was made that he would have to follow the SCOTUS decision. I noted, “It STILL doesn’t [apply]. That’s a FEDERAL judge that issued the order, not a
    STATE judge, and according to Moore, the Federal Government has no
    jurisdiction over State affairs.”

    Moore is living in an alternate reality and is foolish to think that he answers to no one.

    Roy Moore is so addicted to Bronze Age mythology that he’s unaware that he lives in the 21st century. He pretends to uphold the law, but said law is tribal Jewish law.

  • NowVoyager

    As far as Kagan and Ginsburg not recusing themselves after performing wholly legal marriages — which they were perfectly allowed to do so within jurisprudential bounds — well, let us just look at the real culprits who actually did defied the judicial ethics code (Canon 4C of the Code of Conduct for U.S. Judges).

    “Justices Thomas and Scalia Violate Judicial Ethics By Headlining Right Wing Fundraisers” By Rmuse

    ….”The vice president for policy and litigation for Common Cause, Arn Pearson, said β€œJustice Thomas is among several members of the high court who’ve made a habit of flouting judicial ethics by headlining Federalist Society fundraisers, and he gets away with it because the Court has exempted itself from the Code, but that doesn’t make it right.” Likely, Pearson is alluding to more than conservatives on the Court fundraising for the Federalist Society because it is well-documented that Scalia and Thomas are devotees of the Koch brothers ideological bent and notoriously attended a secret Koch billionaire policy meeting in 2010 with advocates for Citizens United prior to ruling that corporations have the right to buy Republican politicians and influence legislation with unrestricted campaign contributions.”
