Bill Pryor Shocking Comments to Judge Roy Moore
It is extremely important that every American citizen read the exchange between Alabama
Attorney General Bill Pryor and Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore during
Moore's trial. Since The Court of the Judiciary did not allow television cameras or
recording devices in the courtroom, it is up to people like me to get the word out to the
American people as to what Pryor said. The examination of Chief Justice Moore by Bill
Pryor is shocking, to say the least. Here is a verbatim exchange between the two men taken
from the official court transcript:
Pryor: Mr. Chief Justice? And your understanding is that the Federal court ordered that
you could not acknowledge God; isn't that right?
Pryor: And if you resume your duties as Chief Justice after this proceeding, you will
continue to acknowledge God as you have testified that you would today ---
Moore: That's right.
Pryor: ---no matter what any other official says?
Moore: Absolutely. Without --- let me clarify that. Without an acknowledgment of God, I
cannot do my duties. I must acknowledge God. It says so in the Constitution of Alabama. It
says so in the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. It says so in everything
I have read. So ---
Pryor: The only point I am trying to clarify, Mr. Chief Justice, is not why, but only
that, in fact, if you do resume your duties as Chief Justice, you will continue to do that
without regard to what any other official says; isn't that right?
Moore: Well, I'll do the same thing this Court did with starting of prayer; that's an
acknowledgment of God. Now, we did the same say thing that justices do when they place
their hand on the Bible and say, "So help me God." It's an acknowledgment of
God. The Alabama Supreme Court opens with, "God save the State and this Honorable
Court." It's an acknowledgment of God. In my opinions, which I have written many
opinions, acknowledging God is the source --- a moral source of our law. I think you must.
Does everyone understand what Bill Pryor was saying? He was saying that in order for Chief
Justice Moore to resume his duties, he must not acknowledge God. The posting of the Ten
Commandments did not even come up. Roy Moore's "crime" was acknowledging God.
For this, he was removed from the bench.
To require that a public official not acknowledge God not only violates the First
Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, but also Article Six of the Constitution that says,
" no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or
public trust under the United States." To require Chief Justice Moore to not
acknowledge God certainly violates this constitutional obligation!
Therefore, federal judge Myron Thompson and Alabama Attorney General Bill Pryor have
plainly and deliberately violated Roy Moore's constitutional rights under the First
Amendment and Article Six of the U.S. Constitution. For doing so, they should be
immediately removed from office, and Bill Pryor should be denied appointment to the
Bill Pryor, Myron Thompson and the federal judiciary are out-of-control! They must be
reigned in now! Congress has the authority to limit and regulate the jurisdiction of the
federal courts. It must do so immediately. However, moving Congress to action is our job
--- yours and mine. We can make a difference, but we must act now!
