Ousted & Disgraced ex-Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice re-Jesuses Voters

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Thursday, March 15, 2012

The appalling irony of it all, is that Moore’s political history is exceedingly marred, because he is the ONLY justice EVER in the history of Alabama to be removed from the Alabama Supreme Court by and through the Alabama Court of the Judiciary November 13, 2003, on ethics charges, for defying Federal Court Order.

Mr. Moore’s job – as any jurist’s job – was to interpret the law, not establish it, not to write it, but to interpret it.

Granted, Mr. Moore is a religious man. No one is disputing his faith. However, we, the people are not and do not elect a chief religious law jurist. We do not elect someone whom is expert in religious law, nor on the basis of their religious expertise, or faith. The United States Constitution specifically states that there shall be no religious test required of any person whom holds any political office.

The No Religious Test Clause of the United States Constitution is found in Article VI, paragraph 3, and states that:

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.

Why, oh why would anyone want to place someone in office based exclusively upon their religion?

Is not that very idea the one which most – if not all – religious people say they abhor in some Middle Eastern nations, in which the religion of Islam is the guiding force?

I find it ironic, if not deeply disturbing that so many otherwise good religious folk want the same thing their Muslim brethren do. But then, I wonder if they see the ironic parallel.

I doubt it.

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Irony: Disgraced & Failed Alabama jurist Roy Moore to ride horse to GOP Super Tuesday poll

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Tuesday, March 13, 2012

The irony is not lost.

Fell off horse. Broke ribs. Gets back on same horse. Returns to campaign for same office from which he was previously ousted.

And what’s that colloquially popular saying? “Fuck you and the horse you rode in on”?

You’ll need to read the news item below to fully grasp the significance. It’s simply too ironic.

Folks, I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried!
