Deja vu all over again

An Alabama judge, a civil rights federal ruling… it all seems so familiar, doesn’t it?

MOBILE, Ala. — A federal judge here ordered a county official in Mobile to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

With the ruling, Judge Callie V. S. Granade of Federal District Court, enjoined the probate judge in Mobile County, Don Davis, from refusing to issue licenses to gay couples seeking to wed.

“Judge Davis may not deny them a license on the ground that Plaintiffs constitute same-sex couples or because it is prohibited by the sanctity of marriage,” the decision said.

The ruling came shortly after Judge Granade heard arguments from lawyers for four same-sex couples seeking to marry and a plea for clarity from the lawyer of a local probate judge. The decision was expected to send a signal to judges statewide who are caught between a federal ruling and an order from Alabama’s chief justice.

  1. That picture needs the Pope up there, too. Sorry Susie – anyone who thinks I’m not good enough as a woman to interpret the “word of God” and that being childless makes me selfish deserves to be up there.

  2. According to most religious types nobody, man or woman, is qualified to interpret the word of God except for the “special ones.” It just so happens that most women, for some odd reason, weren’t “blessed” by God to ever be included that “special ones” category. Tough luck on that. 🙂
    As far as being selfish goes, even the Pope isn’t infallible. Nor does he have any children.

    “The South will rise again.” Just like the Hindenburg.
