Openly anti-gay Chief Justice of AL Supreme Court vows to openly defy marriage equality

by Jeremy Hooper

His name being so associated with conservative activism, it's easy to forget that Roy Moore is actually the Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. And here is his latest transgression:

In a letter to Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley, Moore details what he calls “legitimate concerns” about whether the federal courts have the authority to consider the constitutionality of Alabama’s marriage laws — asking the governor not to enforce the ruling.

Citing the Bible and an 1825 letter from Thomas Jefferson, Moore declares, “Our State Constitution and our morality are under attack by a federal court decision that has no basis in the Constitution of the United States.”

Moore is asking the governor to just ignore the federal court rulings and instead continue to enforce the Yellowhammer State's discriminatory marriage amendment.

Yeah, and I once asked Santa Claus for a pink flying pony. We don't always get what we want simply because we want it and have a rich enough fantasy life to support it.
