Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore and the rest of the his court are being attacked from the right. From World Net Daily:
Marriage activists in Alabama have filed complaints with the state Judicial Inquiry Commission against the nine members of the state Supreme Court because they have failed to rule on the application of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in favor of same-sex “marriage.”
The case has been pending in the state court since the nation’s high court ruled last year that the Constitution allows same-sex couples to marry.
Now the complaints, on behalf of Barbour County Tea Party, Alabama Patriots, Rainy Day Patriots, Conservative Christians of Alabama, Common Sense Campaign, Christian Development and Renewal Ministries and several ministers have been filed against Chief Justice Roy Moore and justices Michael Bolin, Tommy Bryan, Greg Shaw, Glenn Murdock, Tom Parker, Kelli Wise, Allen Main and Lyn Stuart.
The state case originally was brought on behalf of the Alabama Policy Institute and others. It came after U.S. District Judge Callie Granada, prior to the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling, ordered the creation of same-sex “marriage” in the state.
“Failure of the Alabama Supreme Court to rule expeditiously in API – despite their own request for briefs, an emergency petition, and a petition for declaratory order in a critical time of legal conflict, suggests nothing less than a dereliction of duty to constituents and other elected officials who are looking to the court for direction. Canon 3 (Canons of Judicial Ethics) was no doubt established to prevent this this kind of extended silence and the negative effect such silence has had in the State of Alabama,” the complaints read.
In a statement released by the parties filing the complaints, Terry Batton said the case is not only about God’s institution of marriage, but “the future of our country, the rule of law, and the preservation of our Constitution and separation of powers.”
Danny Joyner, commander of Alabama Patriots, added: “Never have our families and our faith been attacked so vehemently by so many evil and immoral forces. One day everyone will stand before God and be judged whether they stood and glorified Him or chose to remain mute and by so doing deny Him. It is time to decide whether to be on The Lord’s side or not.”
The complaint demands that Alabama only accept Obergefell as binding on the plaintiffs named in the case.
