Here we go again.


The Alabama Supreme Court on Tuesday ordered the state’s probate judges to stop issuing marriage licenses to gay couples, saying a previous federal ruling that gay-marriage bans violate the U.S. Constitution does not preclude them from following state law, which defines marriage as between a man and a woman.

The all-Republican court sided with the argument offered by a pair of conservative organizations when they appealed a decision last month by U.S. District Judge Callie Granade of Mobile, who ruled that both Alabama’s constitutional and statutory bans on same-sex marriage were unconstitutional.

Six justices concurred in the 134-page opinion, which wasn’t signed, but the court’s most outspoken opponent of gay marriage, Chief Justice Roy Moore, recused himself…

The court’s ruling Tuesday came in response to a request from the Alabama Policy Institute and the Baptist-run Alabama Citizens Action Program to halt same-sex unions after Granade’s ruling.

    Not having learned anything from their own socially-regressive mistakes of the past, Alabama strives to once again end up on the wrong side of history.

      One would have thought they might direct their efforts towards education.

    They had genuine concerns.

      And besides, one jackass in the family is enough.

      In NC, both parties have to sign their name, but for them that can’t ‘rite in Alabama, maybe….

      (I think it’s pretty self evident their Supreme Court Justices can’t read).

    why would anyone concerned about this kind of decision live in a mosquito infested, mindless swamp like alabama?

    Constitutionally illiterate Roy Moore still hasn’t read Article VI the federal government’s “Supremacy Clause!” Alabama Chief Moron: ‘Opposition to Equal marriage in Alabama hasn’t changed since 2006 state ban’

    It’s a good thing we have fine upstanding Christians from Alabama instructing us on who to hate.

    best if the Alabama Supreme Court rereads their own State Constitution where the US Constitution has precedence over their State Constitution.
    In the America that REAL AMERICANS love, it’s an EQUAL RIGHTS ISSUE.
