Alabama Ignoring A Federal Court? Who Would Have Guessed?


With the issue of same-sex marriage pending before the Supreme Court, Alabama has been told by a federal court that it can't deny issuing marriage licenses in those cases.

Today, Alabama Supreme Court Judge Roy Moore said, in effect, "Oh, yes we can" has he ordered all relevant state judges to follow Alabama law (that has been struck down.)

Moore? Where have I heard of him. Oh . . .

I've wondered why a governor or state attorney general hasn't done the same thing....basically telling the federal judge to stick his opinion and we're not going to issue any marriage licenses for gay couples. It's high time the states starting bucking the Feds and fight for states rights.

Like him or not, he stands up for his principals. If it were the other way around you would be touting him as a hero.

Federal courts ignored prop 8 in California. Why should the people honor court decisions?

The separation of powers was a good idea. To bad the left despises everything that has come before them.

Spoiler alert: the Supreme Court tells Alabama its laws are antiquated and the President calls out the National Guard to make certain the state follows the "established law of the land".

Oh, wait a minute. That was the plot for Selma.

Never mind.

at 2:29 x 2 - No, the Fed. Courts did not ignore Prop 8. Marriages were halted after it passed. It was only after a long court fight-through the Fed. District Court, Appeals Court and Finally the Supreme Court that Prop. 8 was struck down as a blatantly illegal use of referendums that civil marriage equality then returned to California. Get your facts straight. And learn how Constitutional Government works.

Maybe he's running on a pro-education bureaucracy platform.

If I were gay then I wouldn't live in Alabama anyway.

Here is how this ends. Supreme Court says states have a right to make their own laws. States will say they will not allow gay marriage. Federal government says "okay that is your right. However if you don't allow gay marriage then your funding for highways, education, etc, will be decreased substantially." This will cause the states to cave. So is what happened with raising the drinking age from 18-21. Tell me this ain't a F'd up system for states. Way to go Alabama. Hope you stick with it!

Gay marriage is just the democrat way to control population.

Love how the Republicans are anti-Activist Judges, until it fits their agenda.

If only you had replaced in your statement "Republicans" with "some people", well then, you would have made a statement worthy of consideration.
