Alabama CJ Fighting Same-Sex Marriage
Nearly 7 months after the SCOTUS struck down laws prohibiting same-sex marriage, Alabama Cheif Justice Roy Moore still believes it's his state's right to deny them. Moore has been an outspoken opponent of LGBT rights and has garnered support from many anti-gay conservative groups. Although Moore stopped short of requesting officials to deny same-sex marriage licences, he claimed it their right to do so.
A few counties are currently offering no marriage licences, while most are issuing licences to both opposite and same-sex couples.
