Judge Roy Moore is one of my real life American heroes. He has always stood for the US Constitution, Bill of Rights and the laws of the state of Alabama. He also understands the importance of recognizing America’s Christian foundation and the principles of law based upon the Bible.
As Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, Moore defended the right to display the Ten Commandments at the state Supreme Courthouse. He lost his case, but believed that the law was still on his side. It resulted in him being removed from the state supreme court in 2003, but not without a great deal of public support for him and his position.
This past November, Moore defeated Democrat Bob Vance and won the election to return to the bench as the Chief Justice of the Alabama State Supreme Court. He was sworn back into office on January 11, 2013.
Now, Moore is about to take on another highly controversial case that could have national ramifications – the eligibility of Barack Obama to run or serve as President of the United States.
A lawsuit had been filed in Montgomery Circuit Court asking that Alabama Secretary of State Beth Chapman verify the eligibility of every candidate that was on the November 2012 state ballot. Larry Klayman, founder of Judicial Watch and current leader of Freedom Watch contends that there was sufficient evidence from an official source that questioned the eligibility of Barack Obama to run for president. Having that evidence, Chapman was obligated by state law to investigate and determine whether or not Obama was or wasn’t eligible to run, but she failed to do so. The court dismissed the case at the request of Obama’s attorneys.
