Roy Moore on Principles & Values

 

 


Must act as one nation under God

We must remain a moral and virtuous people, "One Nation under God." I support freedom of worship and the recognition of that God upon Whom we have always relied in peace and war.

God first, then family, then country

Roy Moore today announced he is resigning from his position as the Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court to run for the United States Senate. "I'll stand for the rights and liberties of the people," Moore announced to cheering supporters and to reporters gathered at the State Capitol. "My position has always been God first, family then country," Moore said. He later added, "Before we can make America great again, we've got to make America good again."

Moore said a key to making that happen is making sure the federal government stays within constitutional bounds. "We've got to understand that getting back to the Constitution, getting back to its restraints, are what we need in this country to make it great again."

Removed as Justice for illegally posting Ten Commandments

[In announcing his Senate run], Moore said he has submitted his papers to resign from the state Supreme Court, a position he was suspended from for the remainder of his term. The governor will now be able to appoint a new associate justice to give Alabama's highest court its full 9 members.

Last week, a special Alabama Supreme Court upheld the decision suspending Moore from his position for the remainder of his term. The Court of the Judiciary found that Moore violated judicial ethics by telling probate judges in a January 2016 administrative order that they still had a duty to uphold Alabama's laws against gay marriage. The US Supreme Court had legalized gay marriage in June 2015.

The Court of the Judiciary removed Moore from the chief justice's office in 2003 for refusing to follow a federal judge's order to remove a Ten Commandments monument Moore had placed in the state judicial building. Voters returned Moore to the chief justice's office in 2012. His term was to end in 2019.
