Alabama Chief Justice Issues Massive Order in Defiance of U.S. Supreme Court

Same-sex couples in Alabama will have to hold on and wait a few weeks before proceeding with their nuptials, thanks to an order issued by the Alabama Supreme Court.

The court issued an order on Monday that essentially prohibits probate judges in the state from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples for 25 days.

This has effectively stalled the Supreme Court’s gay marriage ruling in Alabama, while providing time for interested parties to file motions and petitions contesting the ruling.

“Basically it states that in the court’s judgment, it (the U.S. Supreme Court ruling Friday) is tabled effective until after the hearing (before the Alabama Supreme Court),” Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore said. “It’s not in effect until after this hearing in this 25 day period” . . .

“I am not real clear what it’s saying .. it’s very unclear,” said Jefferson County Probate Judge Sherri Friday, who is continuing to issue licenses to same-sex couples while attorney’s review the order from Alabama’s highest court.

    If more States Attorneys had this attitude (States Rights), this SCOTUS ruling would be over-ridden. I am for Free Choice – BUT the G&L groups do not want to ‘pay’ the Consequences*; they just are looking for Legalized Sex.
    *many posts and articles on Consequences.

    Texas should follow suit…this ruling by the elists supremes is unlawful and unconstitutional.

  • Nam1

    All states should ignore this opinion by the high court, because thats exactly what it is, an opinion… If Obama can pick and choose his laws, so can we.

    • Daninfla6th

      Statements like that are best said by people that have several hundred million people of like mind behind them with guns in their hands!

      Oh, YEAH, they are!

    The SuperCreme court is outside their jurisdiction, they cannot force a religion like LGBTBFD on the citizens, period.
    They have no authority.
    All the justices should be arrested and jailed for criminal acts.

    Nullification sounds like good strategy, good sense.

    Thank GOD for these Champion American Patriot Warriors Jim Hood, Ken Paxton and Roy Moore who have sagacious understanding of Constitutional Rule of Law and the stalwart determination to stand up and fight against this evil perversion and tyranny. GOD bless them all! 2 Chronicles 7 : 14 “ if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and forgive their sin and heal their land. “

  • Joe Miller is a waste of a tax-paid education. He should pay us back for it, because this is clearly sedition. What ever happened to patriotism?

    I’m not a West Point grad, just a working stiff vet, E-5, Honorable Discharge. But at least I am a patriot. Mr. Miller should move to a country more in keeping with his governing philosophy, which is that the laws and the courts don’t matter. I hear the Taliban has an opening at the top.

      First off, you are not the only vet around….These people making laws are now and have most of our history are lying lawyers that have perverted the constitution over and over again. Laws and courts DO matter, that is why these feel good decisions are a sham. So you just stand in line like a good little so called patriot like the Jews did with the Nazi’s…

      • Kent2012

        wonder if repack just floated in from the huffy puffy posty, most of the followers of the ho huffington are not what you would label ardent conservative adults that want to see America turned around and the free fall to failure…

    • Kent2012

      not sure how you were able to get “so far” E-5?? soft or hard?? Unfortunately you have not followed the news very closely…missed seeing that “illegal alien” from africur fraudulently placed in the oral office only to begin issuing “edicts” that go far beyond any “presidential” authority and “installing” lezzies into the supremo courto that openly follow communist concepts..only to watch them fail to recuse themselves when dealing with issues that are not supported by most Americans and almost completely fall into the category of “legislation from the bench”…you are a better candidate and my recommendation would be as an E 4 1/2 for isis…they need help translating recruiting posters for more brain dead clowns from outside of “goat humperville”….

      • mak

        Kent, I bet mr e-5 didn’t understand a word you wrote….well, maybe the hard or soft part. I think you should write at a lower level, say 8th grade…

    If the US congress can’t straighten out judicial abuse of power, as I
    see it, there are only 2 options left to the states, and the people. One
    is civil war, which has been talked about extensively in social media,
    but no one in their right mind would truly want to go there before all
    other options were exhausted. The second is for all states with
    constitutional amendments for marriage between a man and woman as the
    only legitimate form of marriage, to pass laws making it illegal in
    their respective state, to cooperate with unconstitutional mandates,
    laws, or judgements. This would not only apply to marriage of course.

    If states are not willing to cooperate with the federal government on
    matters the state finds unconstitutional, the federal government would
    have no enforcement power. Some folks would say, well the feds would
    just send the military, the FBI, and other fed departments to enforce
    the law. Well, at last count 31 states had marriage amendments in their
    respective constitutions. I say to the feds, good luck with that, when
    virtually no state authority is willing to help in those 31 states.

    This would just be a form of civil disobedience, and the safest way to
    force change in a government that no longer listens to the people they
    are supposed to serve. Neither the military, nor any of the federal
    departments are large enough to handle this many states, or people. It
    is a form of anarchy, but a peaceful one.

    The government could threaten all it wants, but how are they going to
    enforce something that the people simply refuse to accommodate? Many
    folks like the state governor, or the police will say they took an oath to defend
    and abide by the US constitution, and therefore consider this non
    compliance against that oath. Well, I myself took that same oath, and
    served my country for 21 years of my life, but that oath also meant that
    I would refuse to accommodate unconstitutional laws or orders.

    The supreme court is not the final arbiter of constitutionality that
    everyone assumes it to be, the people are. We are also the ones who have
    to live with the arrogant decisions that an out of control federal
    government makes. It is well past time for that to change…

    God bless you Judge Roy Moore !! God Bless the Heart of Dixie !!
    Sweet Home Alabama !

    Judge Sherri Friday needs to be replaced since she cannot understand a direct order.

  • As much as I appreciate the intent of these men and even wish them well, in the long haul, America’s still doomed.

    Despite the fact that Roy Moore is heads and shoulders better than the vast majority of his associates in the Judicial branch, the sad fact of the matter is he didn’t place his hand on the Bible and swear to uphold Yahweh’s sovereign law but instead the biblically antithetical Constitution as the supreme law of the land. And its this document that’s the reason SCOTUS was able to rule in favor of same-sex “marriage”:

    “…3. [Man’s inherently wicked heart aside] Every problem America faces today can be traced back to the fact
    that the framers failed to expressly establish a government upon
    Yahweh’s immutable morality as codified in His commandments, statutes,
    and judgments. (Would infanticide and sodomy be tolerated, let alone
    financed by the government, if Yahweh’s perfect law and altogether
    righteous judgments were the law of the land? Would Islam be a looming
    threat to our peace and security if the First Amendment had been
    replaced with the First Commandment? Would Americans be in nearly as
    much debt if usury had been outlawed as a form of theft? Would crime be
    as rampant if “cruel and unusual punishment” had not been outlawed and
    criminals were instead punished with Yahweh’s altogether righteous
    judgments? Would we be on the fiscal cliff if we were taxed with a flat
    increase tax rather than a graduated income tax?)….”

      The only way America is doomed is if you get your wish that the U.S. Constitution is destroyed. We will never be defeated by outside forces. The real danger to our way of life is from enemies within like you. You are a domestic enemy who works to destroy our Constitution.

        All from someone who proffers the bible in one hand and the humanistic document in the other and refuses to have integrity to compare the two.

        You’re like smoke in the breeze.

        And your fuel source can not stand the light of Scripture you claim you hold.

        • Grundune

          Why would anyone want to compare the Bible and the Constitution? I read the Bible and enjoy the liberty the Constitution secured for me.
