PRATTVILLE, Ala., Feb. 13 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Today at the Legends Conference Center, former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, U.S. Senator Richard Shelby and U.S. Congressman Robert Aderholt from Alabama's 4th Congressional district announced the introduction of legislation limiting the authority of the federal judiciary. This brief but powerful legislation outlines the jurisdictional limits of the federal judiciary on cases involving the acknowledgement of God as the sovereign source of law, liberty and government, the interpretation of the Constitution and clarifies the definition for impeachment of federal judges. The Christian Coalition of Alabama, a strong supporter of Chief Justice Moore in the Alabama Ten Commandments battle, greets this announcement today with great enthusiasm.
"You can always depend on Chief Justice Moore, Senator Shelby and Congressman Aderholt to do the right thing and fight for the values deeply imbedded in our Constitution," stated Christian Coalition of Alabama President, John Giles. "We have supporters approaching us daily about what they can do to help reign in our run away federal courts; we now have another constructive measure to lobby Congress, bringing about lasting change," Giles continued.
"The greatest unbridled abuse by the federal judiciary for over forty years has been in the area of redefining the acknowledgement of God as the sovereign source of law, liberty and government. We define this as judicial activism, making law from the bench. These unconstitutional rulings have gone unchecked by other branches of government. Some rulings even use international law versus the U.S. Constitution and for some reason these reckless judicial actions have not merited judicial impeachment, " Giles further stated.
"This profound piece of federal legislation, penned by Chief Justice Roy Moore, will serve as a standard and lighthouse to the federal judiciary that has wandered in the fog for decades on these issues. I will share this legislation, born in Alabama, with my counterparts around the country and we will all call on Congress to take swift and positive action on this legislative measure," Giles concluded.
