Sweet home: 11th Circuit clears way for Alabama equality

by Jeremy Hooper


Soon enough, same-sex couples will be able to marry in Alabama. In AL-A-BAMA:

Today, February 3, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals denied Alabama's request to extend the stay in a federal judge's ruling in favor of the freedom to marry, meaning that same-sex couples should be able to marry on February 9.

Another pretty good indicator that we've won this thing. And even better indicator will be a month or so in when you hear barely a peep from anyone in this extremely red state who really cares all that much or has been negatively affected by the newfound freedom.
