Justice Roy Moore strikes a major blow against judicial tyranny

    One News Now: State justices can, as Justice Moore has done, defy unconstitutional federal rulings which have overturned marriage amendments. Governors, such as Gov. Bentley, can defy unconstitutional federal rulings by forbidding county clerks to issue marriage licenses which would be in violation of the state constitution. (First Amendment law firms such as the Alliance Defending Freedom have pledged to defend pro bono any clerks who refuse to issue same-sex licenses on grounds of conscience.)

    Town Hall: Second, you can call the folks at the Alliance Defending Freedom (see www.TellADF.org). I began working together with these guys in the spring of 2006 – just months before they would represent me in a First Amendment retaliation case. I often spoke at campuses with patently unconstitutional policies and tried to challenge those really bad policies by finding really good plaintiffs. We overturned numerous policies by working together. Best of all, many of the students that decided to stand up earned names for themselves and enhanced their resumes – not to mention their standing in the conservative movement.

MLK on law and morality

    Acton Institute: As Ryan Anderson put it in a speech delivered to the Alliance Defending Freedom in 2013, “The upstream/downstream metaphor can be misleading. Culture shapes law, but so too does law shape culture. The law both reflects our values and teaches values—especially to younger generations. The better metaphor, I think, is that of two coasts connected by a tide, that comes in and out, that picks up and drops off on the shorelines. Law and culture reinforce each other, either for or against human dignity and human flourishing.”
