[su_right_ad]The charge was “disorderly conduct.”

“I have the man who runs this state’s court system telling me not to issue marriage licenses for same-sex couples,” Judge Booth told USA Today, “I have the federal judiciary telling me I will issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.”

“I want to uphold my oath. But what law do I follow?” added Judge Booth. “Which constitution do I uphold?”

Judge Booth claimed last Friday that his office would not perform any marriages because of the work load.

In response, Anne Susan Diprizio, a minister, offered to perform a same-sex marriage for Courtney Cannon and Morgan Plunkett inside Judge Booth’s office today.

However, Judge Booth called the police and Diprizio was charged with disorderly conduct.

    Is that a Sears law degree you got there Boothy? I guess they didn’t cover the supremacy clause at your law school, huh? Here’s a dime; call your mother and tell her you will never be a real lawyer.

    A judge that doesn’t know how to follow the law and is confused? We have a strange system here in the USA. It seems that federal law and such only applies when we have a conservative president.

    “Which constitution do I uphold?”

    We have a JUDGE confused as to whether or not he should follow the US constitution?

    the work load being, throwing ministers, performing same sex marriages in jail, maybe ?

    He is unsure of which courts rulings he should follow? All of his verdicts should come into question if he doesn’t know this one simple little rule of the supremacy clause which states that the Constitution is the supreme law of the land.

    Only in Alabama will you find thousands of law-abiding citizens imprisoned while the (white collar) criminals roam the streets.
