An exercise in imbecility. Last Wednesday a group of Alabama Tea Party Leaders and conservative Christians filed a complaint with the Judicial Inquiry Commission of Alabama against the Alabama Supreme Court. The basis for the complaint is inaction by the Court for over six months.

Complainants (representing themselves) are
Barbour County Tea Party, Alabama Patriots, Rainy Day Patriots, Conservative
Christians of Alabama, Common Sense Campaign, Christian Development and Renewal
Ministries, Rev. Allen Forte, Jr. (True Love Baptist Church), and Dr. Ken Jackson
(Christian Life Church. The complaint is signed by Dr. Terry B. Batton. Batton is the head of the Barbour County Tea Party.

I tracked down Batton and asked the source of his PhD. It remains unknown. “Dr.” Jackson’s is the usual BS from an unaccredited institution. Pretentious, misleading or both?

While Bob Unruh at WND is thrilled, a ruling by the Supreme Court of Alabama is not relevant. The Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that gays have a constitutional right to marry. That is the law of the land regardless of anything that the Alabama court does. Anyone frustrating that constitutional right does so at their peril.
