Judge Challenging Alabama Chief Justice On Gay Marriage: ‘We’re On The Right Side Of History’

Judge Challenging Alabama Chief Justice On Gay Marriage: ‘We’re On The Right Side Of History’ – http://huff.to/1yGPwU9

While on the issue of the ten commandments monument I happened to agree with him, he has to decide if he’s a judge or an activist.

A judge can’t defy court orders.  It undermines the rule of law.  Most judges at one time or another will probably have to uphold something they personally disagree with.  It’s part of the job.

He’s not just in contempt of court, he’s urging others, ordering others, to be in contempt of court as well.

So the correct move is to arrest him for contempt in the face of the court.  If done he can hardly object, that is the aim of much civil disobedience, and if done as civil disobedience is something I can respect even if I don’t personally agree with the cause. 

He has implicitly accepted the consequences, why is there no action?  Doing nothing invites more of this kind of lawlessness.
