Will Bush Be in Contempt of Court?

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]swisscelt)

As you may know, Alabama State Court Chief Justice Roy Moore has been in defiance of a federal court order to remove a monument to the Ten Commandments from the rotunda of the state's judicial building. Now comes Dr. David C. Reardon of the Elliot Institute to suggest to Justice Moore that he appeal to President Bush to openly defy federal jurisprudence by refusing to enforce the federal court order. The Alliance Alert offers this explanation:

Some will complain that what I am counseling will lead to a constitutional crisis. My response is we already have a constitutional crisis. Federal judges, including the Supreme Court, no longer limit themselves to interpreting the law but are unduly anxious to create laws reflecting their own personal convictions and beliefs through creative interpretations of the Constitution. The logic offered to justify these interpretations is often ludicrously weak and clearly [at] odds with the original intent [of] the Constitution’ s articles when they were adopted. What I am proposing is the solution to the crisis we already have.

Social engineering and legislating from the federal bench must be stopped, or at least curtailed. This can done simply by electing a president who recognizes his coequal authority as a sworn defender of the Constitution and has enough spine to tell the courts: "Send in your own troops. We’re not going to enforce court orders which are clearly unconstitutional. To do so would place my Administration in violation of my oath to uphold the Constitution."

Some folks will stop at nothing to force their religious beliefs upon us all, even to the point of throwing the Constitution on a funeral pyre. Here's the open letter from Dr. Reardon to Justice Moore: http://www.alliancealert.org/aa/2003_08_20_01.htm
