    except obey the Law of the State of Alabama?

    Refresh my memory.

    I still think he would be an excellent Supreme Court nominee unless you can prove otherwise.

    I now throw out the gauntlet. [​IMG]

    I am an Alabamian.

    Judge Moore ingored the ruling of a federal court system that you now advocate him being a major part of.

    Will others have the same freedom to choose which federal laws to ignore in favour of thier state laws if he were a federal justice?

    Sorry to lower your self-esteem, C4K, but I have to agree with you. Although I agree with Judge Moore, I think that he made a tactical error on this issue. He should have obeyed the federal law, appealed the issue, and stayed on as Chief Justice of Alabama. I don't think that Bush will nominate him. I think that Bush is going to nominate Janice Rogers Brown.

    Let me see - does that make twice in our history we have agreed ;) ?

    Judge Moore blew his future. I agree with him on the constitutional reasons for his decision, but a Supreme Court justice cannot have a record of ignoring the federal courts.

    I don't know--I have to laugh at you--that also should lower your self-esteem a couple of notches! I guess we are cyberspace friends and now and then political friends and always Christian friends.

    But the Supreme Court refused to hear the case.

    Makes no difference, IMHO. He ignored the federal court system which he would expect others to obey.

    The federal courts had no business being involved in the Alabama case as the first amendment was not violated.

    Right.

    Still, he will expect others to obey a federal court system which he does not think is worth obeying.

    Talk about a double standard.

    Agree. Roy had no way of knowing the case would not be heard and should have obeyed the orders while following 'chain of command' within the court systems.

    We need a 'do as I do' appointee instead of a 'do as I say'.

    Except I think that a Justice Moore would vote to not involve the court to overturn a State law that allowed such a display as his court had in Alabama.

    I agree, the federal courts were out of line, as they are on so many issues!!

    So we should kick all former civil rights activists out of congress and judicial seats because they refused to obey a system they now expect others to obey?

    Sounds like a case of whose ox is being gored.

    I agree as well, but our system of government is not based on each man's right to obey or ignore the courts.

    Moore chose to ignore the federal courts - as justice he would expect them to be obeyed.

    You can't have it both ways folks.

    "You can't have it both ways folks."

    Sure they can. In fact, I've even said that myself and been told "sure they can".

    That's what I thought, JG and Ken. And how was he supposed to know the Supreme Court wouldn't hear the case?

    Well, the grass roots campaigns and rallies have already started about the next nominee, according to Fox News.

    I say, let him be nominated and then undergo the grilling he will get anyway by the Democrats, and he will have an open forum for explaining everything to the public and the world on CSPAN. [​IMG]

    I would encourage people to ignore the courts when those courts go again the Constitution, like with this recent private land grab, I would encourage home owners to ignore the courts, refuse to leave.
