The Biblical View of Marriage Spoken Openly by this Judge May Get Her Disbarred
“September 7, 2016 — On Wednesday, August 17, the Wyoming Supreme Court heard a case that has huge implications for each and every one of us.
“The case involves Judge Ruth Neely, who has served with distinction for twenty-one years as the municipal judge in Pinedale, Wyoming. Because of her beliefs about marriage, the Wyoming Commission on Judicial Conduct and Ethics (CJCE) wants to remove her from her job and disqualify her for service anywhere in the Wyoming judiciary.
“After a year and a half, this case finally came before the Wyoming Supreme Court on August 17.
“The commission was so shocked that she would agree with the Bible that her church (Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod) was called ‘repugnant’ in open court. Moreover, when the Alliance Defending Freedom asked to represent her, the commission filed additional charges against her for “affiliating with a discriminatory organization.
“Note, first, that the idea of ‘sin’ is not a legal category. It is a theological category. Sins are committed against God. Crimes are committed against the state.
“For centuries Americans have accepted that something may be a sin without being a crime. Drunkenness, adultery, greed, and blasphemy immediately come to mind. This concept is at the heart of the distinction between church and state.
“For over two centuries, American judges have been applying the law equitably and fairly to people who engage in all kinds of sins without confusing sins with crimes.
“But now the CJCE wants Wyoming to believe that this particular sin can no longer be called ‘sin’ without threatening the entire judicial system.”
