Roy Moore Has Blown Everyone’s Mind…Again
The Supreme Court of Alabama has issued an order blocking the issuance of same-sex marriage licenses. Chief Justice Roy Moore cited the state’s Marriage Protection Act in issuing the order despite a June ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court striking down such laws throughout the country. Moore has already once been removed from office due to defying a Supreme Court ruling, but was voted back into office.
Unfortunately Roy Moore Is Alabama
I’m wondering why the arguments for banning guns (which no one wants to do) don’t apply to gay marriage (which is definitely what Roy Moore wants to do). If you ban gay marriage, only criminals will get gay married. In reality, the only thing that can stop a bad guy from getting gay married is a good guy getting gay married.
I’m thinking the state slogan should be “Alabama: Because someone has to be on the wrong side of history.” Alabama had to be dragged kicking and screaming into accepting civil rights and interracial marriage. This is no different. The Bible was also used to justify segregation and interracial marriage bans.
In all seriousness, because these are people’s real lives and relationships we are talking about here, why is our country continually subverted by people in authority who use states rights as an excuse to have their decision making guided by mysticism?
Again, Alabama has been on the wrong side of history for generations and Chief “Justice” Roy Moore is just one of a sad and long line of bigots. No state supreme court has jurisdiction over the Supreme Court of the United States of America. This is nothing but religious dogma by a fundamentalist Christian illegally and unethically exercising his judicial power, which is a definitive violation of the separation of church and state.
Chief “Justice” Moore is saying the people of Alabama do not want gay marriage, and marriage has been defined by the state of Alabama as between a man and a woman. Unfortunately for Chief “Justice” Moore, these are the United States of America, and individual states can’t override federal decisions because they’re butthurt.
