ALABAMA: State Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore To Hold Presser On SPLC Ethics Complaint

Yesterday the Liberty Counsel announced that crackpot Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore will hold a press conference at 3PM today about the SPLC’s ethics complaint against him. According to a columnist for the Montgomery Advertiser, Moore’s removal from the bench is all but guaranteed. From the Liberty Counsel:

The Chief Justice and his attorneys will address complaints filed with the Judicial Inquiry Commission (JIC) of Alabama against him by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), People for the American Way, Human Rights Campaign, and various Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender individuals.

On January 12, 2016, some of these individuals publicly protested the Chief Justice’s Administrative Order of January 6, 2016, that explained the legal status of the Alabama Sanctity of Marriage Amendment and the Alabama Marriage Protection Act, and an order in March 2015 entered by the Alabama Supreme Court, at the request of the Alabama Policy Institute and Alabama Citizens Action Program, that prohibited probate judges of Alabama from issuing marriage licenses to members of the same gender.

Mat Staver, one of the attorneys in Ex parte State ex rel. Alabama Policy Institute (API), is now representing the Chief Justice. The API case concluded when the Alabama Supreme Court issued a Certificate of Judgment, which is a final order that continued, in effect, the 2015 orders.

Chief Justice Moore and his attorneys will call upon the JIC to dismiss as completely unfounded the agenda-driven complaints of the SPLC, the Human Rights Campaign, People for the American Way, and that group of atheists, homosexuals, and transgender individuals, led by “Ambrosia Starling,” an admitted transvestite, which group on January 12, 2016, performed a same-sex “marriage” ceremony on the steps of the Alabama Judicial Building in open defiance of the injunctions which had been issued in API.

Those injunctions were left undisturbed in the Certificate of Judgment issued by the Supreme Court on March 4, 2016 (copies of that COJ will be distributed to the media and press attending this important news conference).
