Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore has been suspended from the bench for telling probate judges to defy federal orders regarding gay marriage.

It's the second time Moore has been removed from the chief justice job for defiance of federal courts - the first time in 2003 for refusing to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the state judicial building.

The Alabama Court of the Judiciary (COJ) issued the order Friday suspending Moore from the bench for the remainder of his term after an unanimous vote of the nine-member court.

"For these violations, Chief Justice Moore is hereby suspended from office without pay for the remainder of his term. This suspension is effective immediately," the order stated.

The court found him guilty of all six charges of violation of the canons of judicial ethics. Moore's term is to end in 2019, but because of his age, 69, he cannot run for the office again.

The second times the charm here, I guess.

The Constitution clearly says that states must knuckle under the US Constitution and Federal laws. There is no wiggle room.

He had to go. It was a unanimous vote, they all agreed with me.

My own brother [20+ years ago] held that God's Law must supersede man's laws. So, I can sort of understand, but down that road is chaos, because there is not much agreement [even among Christians] just what God's Law requires. To leave it to the individual destroys "the rule of law".
