Roy Moore on Principles & Values

 

 


Tricked into appearing in TV satire; sued and lost

A federal court threw out the defamation lawsuit filed by Roy Moore against comedian Sacha Baron Cohen. Moore, who served twice in his role on the Alabama Supreme Court & was twice removed from the position, sued Baron Cohen after Moore was interviewed under the pretense that he would receive an award for his support of Israel. Baron Cohen pretended to be an Israeli anti-terrorism expert and claimed he had technology that would show whether Moore was a pedophile--a reference to sexual misconduct allegations against Moore--for "Who Is America?", a Showtime satire series.

Moore alleged that Baron Cohen defamed him, and also alleged intentional infliction of emotional distress and fraud. Moore sued Baron Cohen, along with Showtime and CBS, in 2018, seeking $95 million in damages.

The U.S. District Court dismissed the case after agreeing with the defendants that because Moore had signed a waiver before the interview, and because of First Amendment protection, Moore's claims were barred.

Rejects Trump's tweet that he not run for Senate again

Roy Moore heard the president's request that he sit out the next Alabama Senate race, but he will not be heeding it. "The president doesn't control who votes for the United States Senate in Alabama," Moore told Politico. "People in Alabama are smarter than that. They elect the senator from Alabama, not from Washington, D.C." [Trump's tweet from May 29, 2019]: " Republicans cannot allow themselves to again lose the Senate seat in Alabama. I have NOTHING against Roy Moore and wanted him to win. But he didn't, and probably won't. If Alabama does not elect a Republican to the Senate in 2020, many of the incredible gains that we have made during my Presidency may be lost. Roy Moore cannot win, and the consequences will be devastating....Judges and Supreme Court Justices!"

Sodomy & materialism have taken the place of life & liberty

Q [to Senator-elect Doug Jones, D-AL]: Your opponent, Judge Moore, continues to refuse to concede, saying that this race is not over, and this week issued this video:

(VIDEO CLIP) MOORE: Today, we'll no longer recognize the universal truth that God is the author of our life and liberty. Abortion, sodomy and materialism have taken the place of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

(END VIDEO) Q: Do you think that Roy Moore is hurting Alabama by continuing this contest?

JONES: Well, I just have quit trying to figure out what Judge Moore means when he says things like that. I don't find it in the mainstream of America. I certainly don't even find it in the mainstream of Alabama. I think it's time to move on. And I think he is hurting the people of this state. I want to try to represent everyone. I'm not going to be a senator in which people are going to agree with 100% of the time, but I am going to be the kind of senator the people can talk to, that we can reason with.

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.
