Ladies and gentlemen, the next chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court

Complaint filed because of prayer prior to hearing – al.com

I’m just going by precedent here.

Anyway, the ACLU — which, as you’d expect, is enormously popular in rural southern Alabama, is on the case, suing Ashley McKathan (a man, if you’re wondering) for ordering the disputants in a case involving church financial records to gather together, hold hands, and pray. Personally, I have always wondered why religious-type people aren’t more offended by secular authorities ordering them to be religious. Some of them did complain, leading to this suit.

This judge previously got everyone to pay attention to him by wearing the Ten Commandments embroidered on his robe, but people eventually decided that he was acting out and ignored him.

    Yep, I’d bet money this guy watched the Roy Moore kerfuffle and thought, “I want my 15 minutes of fame.”
