Chief Justice Roy Moore issued an order today saying that a ruling issued last March by the Alabama Supreme Court remains in effect and that probate judges "have a ministerial duty not to issue any marriage license contrary" to Alabama's law and constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage.

In a four-page administrative order, Moore said the conflict between the state court ruling and the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in June has caused "confusion and uncertainty" among probate judges.

Moore said he issued the order today in his role as administrative head of the state court system. He quoted a state law that says the chief justice is empowered to "take affirmative and appropriate action to correct or alleviate any condition or situation adversely affecting the administration of justice within the state."

  1. The Judge is absolutely correct in what he is doing. Until the individual states pass laws allowing same-sex couples to marry, then the SCOTUS ruling is just five dolts' opinion. To save time (this is what the commies have wanted all along) is to not have marriage as a state-sanctioned activity. This is about property rights and children as heirs, but so many are born out of wedlock, that issue can be handled another way. The polygamists and the bestiality folks will want equal consideration, too, so keep that in mind. If the State isn't involved, then who can force a priest or pastor to comply with the insanity?
