gay marriage

Occupying Alabama

Gay marriage is legal through all of the United States of America. The U.S. Supreme Court, one out of three branches of government, says so. The reason I’m stating is this because apparently not everyone has received the information.

Take the chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. This Bama bunghole directed all local judges in his state to stop issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

Roy Moore is a religious wack job and has used his position on the bench to heap his religious views upon the citizens of Alabama. Last February he expressed concern about federal courts stepping on Alabama and wrote “have always recognized the biblical admonition stated by our Lord.” He’s also argued the state should keep children away from gay parents. He supports public prayer but only if it’s Christian.

As chief justice he installed a Ten Commandments monument at the court house and was then thrown off the court for refusing to remove it. He was later elected back to the bench.

We can expect Moore to be found in contempt and maybe even removed once again. That should be fun.

Virginia has a ban on gay marriage.  The new Attorney General Mark Herring has stated he will not defend the law in court.  His rationing is that it will lose in the Supreme Court, as other states have lost similar battles, and it would be a waste of money.  He’s also in favor of gay marriage so that probably has a something to do with his decision also.

A lot of Republicans are upset about this.  They say he’s not doing his job.  The argument goes that it doesn’t matter how an attorney general feels about a law, it’s his job to defend it.  If you look at examples of our last attorney general, Ken Cuccinelli, he initiated lawsuits over “Obamacare” and global warming and lost in court.  Clearly he wasn’t fighting for the state’s best interest, but for his own personal agenda and wasted millions of taxpayer dollars in frivolous pursuits.

I think Herring is right not to fight for this very stupid law.  It will die eventually.

Here’s the rough.

I had a couple of other ideas we picked over.  Here they are.
