Alabama Chief Justice Roy MooreHomosexual activists and their supporters want Alabama's Supreme Court chief justice thrown out of office.

Last summer, after the U.S. Supreme Court made homosexual "marriage" possible, Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore ordered the state's probate judges not to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Hannah Ford of Sanctity of Marriage Alabama tells OneNewsNow that opposition resumed last week when the judge reminded the probate judges of that ban.

"... After the Supreme Court decision in June that reportedly legalized same-sex marriage in the whole United States, [Judge Moore] just noted that since then, two federal courts have stated that that decision only applied in the four states that were parties to the case," she explains.

LBGT activists, abortion supporters, atheists, and humanists gathered in Montgomery for a demonstration calling for the removal of Judge Moore from the state bench. Ford shares her take on that gathering.

"It's interesting because they were blaspheming God really," says the advocate for natural marriage. "They hate God's institution of marriage; they really don't understand the Constitution very well – and then they try to remove one of the few people in the nation who's standing up for all three of those things: the chief justice."

Ford says it's vital that the Alabama Supreme Court rule on a case before them that calls for rejection of the Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v. Hodges. That, she explains, would reinforce Judge Moore's instructions to probate judges.
