Alabama Permits Same-Sex Marriage

Alabama Permits Same-Sex Marriage

Dee Bush, Laura Bush

The Supreme Court decides to make Alabama the 37th state in America to permit same-sex marriage. CNN reports that a district judge lifted the ban on gay marriage and Alabama was not too pleased about it. Alabama planned on impeding the court’s decision:

In denying Alabama’s request for a delay, the Supreme Court set up a clash with state judicial officials. Roy Moore, the controversial Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, warned probate judges in the state not to issue marriage licenses.

In the order, Moore said effective immediately, no probate Judge of the State of Alabama should issue or recognize a marriage license that is inconsistent with a State constitution. In the order, Moore says that the opinions of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Alabama do not bind the state courts of Alabama but only serve as persuasive authority.

On the other hand, The Associated Press reports that the Supreme Court will not block weddings:

The U.S. Supreme Court said Monday morning that it wouldn’t stop the marriages, and shortly after, probate judges began granting the licenses to couples, some of whom had been lined up for hours and exited courthouses to applause from supporters.

What a great move towards freedom and equality in Alabama today. Love conquers all, again!
