ALCFC Press Release

Why Can't We Love Our Children

From D-Contamination to Grim Reapers and Father Christmas parent’s group challenges domestic court practices.

Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) December 19, 2004 -- With American divorce statistics rising annually and the majority of divorces involving children who 90% of the time, end up in mother’s custody with fathers being reduced to visitors and a paycheck in their children’s lives, many father’s rights groups have emerged demanding equality in America’s domestic relations courts. One group in particular is the Alabama Coalition for Fathers and Children (ALCFC). The ALCFC has a national and international network of supporters who all claim to be victims of biased domestic relations courts.

On June 18th, 2004 the Friday before Father’s Day the ALCFC staged a D-Contamination raid on the Jefferson County Family Court in Birmingham, Alabama in a symbolic attempt to clean up Alabama Family Law. On October 29th, 2004 group leaders appeared as Grim Reapers at the Jefferson County Domestic Relations Court in Birmingham symbolizing that to fathers and children the court is a real life “House of Horrors” and that the court is responsible for the “Death of Fatherhood”. And once again on December 1st, 2004 at the same court showed up in full Santa costumes and helpers to attempt to “Save Father Christmas”.

Alan Rusmisel, Vice-President and co-founder of ALCFC remarks, “There can be no doubt about the negative effects on children caused by fatherlessness. These courts with their self-appointed social engineers, are the main perpetrator of fatherlessness in America and especially here in Alabama. Here we have a “good ole boy” justice system that is run by nothing more than child abusers. If separating a child from a fit and loving parent is not child abuse, I do not know what is. The ALCFC’s tactics of peaceful direct action is an attempt to bring these issues to the court of public opinion. The judges are not held accountable for their biased and unconstitutional actions against parents and children and the Alabama Judicial Inquiry Commission who is responsible for over seeing judges, is a perfect example of the fox guarding the henhouse. It is my opinion that this brotherhood structure is not an accident but, a well built money making machine for the members of Alabama Bar Association. The sad part is our innocent children are paying the price.”

The Alabama Coalition for Fathers and Children is also addressing these issues in other venues. The ALCFC provided testimony to the Alabama Supreme Court’s Advisory Committee on Child Support Guidelines in March 2004. This prompting the filing of a Federal Lawsuit by member and supporter James Blackston (see Blackston v. Alabama alleging that the state violated a federal court order and gerrymandered the hearings. The ALCFC is supporting the national class-action suit demanding the restoration of parental rights as mandated by the U.S. Constitution initiated by the Indiana Civil Rights Council and filed in Alabama by ALCFC member Dr. Richard Weiss. The group is also preparing equal parenting legislation to be presented to the Alabama Legislature in January 2005.

President and co-founder John Kral added, There should be no reason to have to file lawsuits in order to get permission to take our own children to get an ice crème cone or have lunch with them at their school. These are fundamental issues concerning parent’s and children’s rights and the ALCFC wants judges held accountable for denying these rights. We just want to be able to love and nurturer our children without undue state intervention.”

The Alabama Coalition for Fathers and Children are registering members of families who have been victimized by domestic relation courts at their website This in order to gain support and provide helpful information directly to victims
