"On the day that same-sex unions became legal in Alabama, local officials in dozens of counties on Monday defied a federal judge’s decision and refused to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, casting the state into judicial chaos.Gay couples were able to get licenses in about a dozen places, including Birmingham, Huntsville and a few other counties where probate judges complied with the judge’s decision. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled early Monday that it would deny Alabama’s request to put the marriages on hold.But in the majority of counties, officials said they would refuse to license same-sex marriages or stop providing licenses altogether, confronting couples -- gay and heterosexual -- with locked doors and shuttered windows."
Here is my message to judges or others who believe in same-sex marriage: Get in the political arena and persuade voters! Please don't overturn what often large majorities of voters, of every ethnic group, vote for.I would be happy to accept "same-sex marriage" if the voters decided to change the traditional definition of marriage.
