Roy Moore is the Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. He’s also an idiot (in my opinion). Why you ask? Because yesterday he said that even though the Federal Court found same-sex marriage bans unconstitutional, the State is not bound by that.
This is the same idiot who, in 2003, was removed from his place as Chief Justice because he insisted that they needed a 5000 pound granite sculpture, 3 ft by 3 ft by 4 ft tall, with the 10 Commandments on it.
Apparently, he never learned about the separation of church and state. That’s like Politics 101.
Anyway, so now he’s all for this same-sex marriage ban. Which, you all know, infuriates me.
Here’s the thing:
Who cares if someone’s marriage is against your religion. Marriage is a legal union. There’s separation of church and state. Religion should not dictate laws.
What bothers me is when states pass these laws that they KNOW are unconstitutional. Then, they waste the taxpayers money in courts as lawsuits are filed against the state. Of course, the state will side with itself, so then it gets appealed to the state appeals, who will also side with the state. Then it goes to federal appeals courts, where of course the state will lose. Because it’s UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Which they knew going in.
But who pays for all this? The taxpayers.
This self-righteous, pompous Moore has been around the block. He should know all this. I’m not even a politician nor a judge and I can tell you how this is going to play out.
With him playing a game with his constituents money.
