  • Fighting The Good Fight?

    At least they are trying...

    At the Jefferson County Courthouse here, Judge Michael G. Graffeo of Circuit Court officiated, at times tearfully, at the civil wedding of Dinah McCaryer and Olanda Smith, the first to emerge from the crowd of same-sex couples who lined up Monday morning. “I now pronounce Olanda and Dinah are married spouses, entitled to all rights and privileges, as well as all responsibilities, afforded and placed upon them by the State of

    But in the small town of Troy, all was quiet at the Pike County Courthouse, where Judge Wes Allen of Probate Court, like his counterparts in some other counties, had decided that rather than issue licenses to same-sex couples, he would not grant marriage licenses to anyone. “We don’t have any appointments, and we have a sign up saying that we aren’t issuing any licenses at this time,” he said.

    On Sunday night, the state’s chief justice, Roy S. Moore, sent an order to county Probate Court judges, telling them not to issue the licenses, in defiance of a Federal District Court ruling that is being appealed by the state. But on Monday morning, the United States Supreme Court refused to stay the District Court order pending the outcome of that appeal.

    “Effective immediately, no probate judge of the State of Alabama nor any agent or employee of any Alabama probate judge shall issue or recognize a marriage license that is inconsistent” with the Alabama Constitution or state law, Chief Justice Moore wrote in his order late Sunday.

      This cracks me up.

      Conservatives: "Gay people want to destroy marriage!"
      Liberals: "Um, how exactly would gay people getting married affect you?"
      Conservatives: "We will stop the straight marriages to stop the gay ones!"
      Liberals: "Um, wouldn't that make you the ones destroying marriage?"
      Conservatives: "BUT TEH GAYZ MADE US DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

      The Republicans seem to have the same approach to the question of government: They're willing to shut down the entire government just to express their objections to not getting their way on every issue.

      Nutters.

        Obama shut down the government just as much as Republicans did. Republicans got the blame due to liberals still owning most media mouthpieces.

          Your sheer level of disconnection from reality is priceless.

            Shutdowns require at least two to tango. You can't have a disagreement with yourself.
