We need a modern day Sherman to plow under this shithole:
The Alabama Supreme Court on Tuesday night ordered probate judges around the state to stop issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, ruling in direct opposition to a federal judge that the state’s ban on same sex marriage did not violate the United States Constitution.
In a 7-to-1 decision, the court ruled that “Alabama law allows for ‘marriage’ between only one man and one woman,” and that the state’s probate judges “have a ministerial duty not to issue any marriage license contrary to this law.”
While the court found that the state’s probate judges were not legally bound by the multiple rulings by a Federal District Court judge, Callie V. S. Granade, in favor of same-sex marriage, it also delivered a long and forceful rebuttal of her decision and the findings of federal judges across the country on same-sex marriage.
“Government has an obvious interest in offspring and the consequences that flow from the creation of each new generation, which is only naturally possible in the opposite-sex relationship, which is the primary reason marriage between men and women is sanctioned by state law,” the court ruled.
The ruling, on a petition brought by two conservative groups and joined by a county probate judge, is only the latest round in a battle over jurisdiction on the question of same- sex marriage in Alabama. The fight is likely to be decided by the United States Supreme Court.
Ok lawyers, why isn’t this simply a Supremacy Clause issue, and if it is, why have these guys not been curbjawed yet?
