Christian Judge removed for “Gay” Wedding Refusal

Neely, Ruth

Judge Ruth Neely

Forward this email to anyone you know in Wyoming.

“The case of Judge Ruth Neely in Wyoming shows, in stark clarity, that it doesn’t actually matter whether religious people do their jobs well and keep their religion to themselves. It’s unacceptable to think and believe certain things, such as marriage being an institution between one man and one woman, and if you do that, forget about going into the legal profession…” reports The Federalist.

“Ruth Neely has been a municipal judge for more than two decades. She hears cases about the types of things you normally see in small towns: traffic citations, parking tickets, animal control cases, alcohol infractions, and petty crimes. Marriage is not listed in the duties and responsibilities of this position. Neely also serves part-time as an unpaid court magistrate, and this position allow for solemnizing marriages. The Wyoming Commission on Judicial Conduct and Ethics (CJCE) has recommended that Neely be removed from both of her positions, including the one that doesn’t even perform marriages, simply because she has chosen to not solemnize gay marriages, a voluntary part of her unpaid job.

“Neely has remained firm in her religious convictions. She’s an active member of a Missouri Synod Lutheran church in Pinedale, and bases her personal morality on that faith. Addressing the ethics committee’s concerns, Neely stated:

‘Homosexuality is a named sin in the Bible, as are drunkenness, thievery, lying, and the like. I can no more officiate at a same-sex wedding than I can buy beer for the alcoholic.’

“The Wyoming commission ‘claims that because Judge Neely’s religious beliefs prevent her from solemnizing same-sex marriage, she cannot be a judge in Wyoming, even in a position that does not have authority to perform marriages.’ Since legal decisions at this level are not about one person or situation, this touches the lives (and careers) of all people who have religious beliefs about certain actions.”

[Dr. Chaps’ comment:  Like Judge Roy Moore, and Clerk Kim Davis, this Judge Ruth Neely is a hero, standing for everyone’s religious freedom to refuse to participate in other peoples’ sin.  Will the Wyoming legislature protect her freedom, as they did in Kentucky?  The Wyoming Pastors Network has a free petition you can sign, here, so please forward this to all your Wyoming friends.]

Judge Roy Moore to stand Trial for opposing Gay ‘Marriage’

As I return from my trip to Alabama where I stood with Judge Roy Moore, the national headlines continue to roll in.  Judge Roy Moore will stand trial that could remove him from office, because he believes in traditional marriage.

“Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore is headed to trial next month,” reports AL Public Radio.

“The nine members of the Alabama Court of the Judiciary decided yesterday’s hearing wasn’t enough to address the ethics charges against Chief Justice Moore. The Chief Justice is accused of abusing his power as chief justice to promote an agenda against same-sex marriage. The Judicial Inquiry Commission says Moore encouraged the state’s probate judges to defy a U.S. Supreme Court decision that had already legalized gay marriage nationwide.

“Moore addressed a crowd of supporters outside the state judicial building after yesterday’s hearing. He says he did nothing of the sort.

“They said that I urged the federal courts – or the probate judges to disobey the federal courts – there is nothing in any of that administrative order that says that. Nothing. In fact, I said I’m not at liberty to give you guidance. That’s the Alabama Supreme Court that gives you guidance.”

“Moore’s trial is scheduled for September 28. If the court decides he violated judicial ethics, he could face his second removal from office.”

[Dr. Chaps’ comment:  It was good to stand up for Chief Moore yesterday at the hearing (see our new photo below), because he stood with me so many years ago.  Now he stands for all Americans’ right to not be trampled by sodomites who wish to deprive children of a mother or father, by redefining “marriage.”]
