SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE: “Alabama’s Ten Commandments Bigot Judge, Ray Moore, Suspended for Rest of Term for Defying Federal Judiciary Over Same-sex Marriage” ☮

ray-mooreThe Alabama Court of the Judiciary today suspended Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore for the rest of his term in office.

The Court ruled that Moore violated the canons of judicial ethics by ordering Alabama’s probate judges to defy a federal court injunction requiring them to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples on a non-discriminatory basis. This is the second time in 13 years that Moore has been sanctioned as a result of ethics complaints filed by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
