Homophobic Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore Orders Same-Sex Marriage Ban

Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore issued an order Wednesday instructing the state’s probate judges of their “ministerial duty not to issue any marriage license contrary” to Alabama’s constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage.

“Until further decision by the Alabama Supreme Court, the existing orders of the Alabama Supreme Court that Alabama probate judges have a ministerial duty not to issue any marriage license contrary to the Alabama Sanctity of Marriage Amendment or the Alabama Marriage Protection Act remain in full force and effect,” Moore wrote in the order.


Despite the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2015 decision overturning such state bans, Moore argues that Alabama’s law is still valid, and that as chief justice he is has the authority to “take affirmative and appropriate action to correct or alleviate any condition or situation adversely affecting the administration of justice within the state.”
