In a blog post for the National Organization for Marriage, president Brian Brown praised the Alabama State Supreme Court for halting same-sex marriage.
“We praise the justices of the Alabama Supreme Court who have ruled in overwhelming fashion that the laws of Alabama defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman must be followed by state officials.”
“A single federal judge does not have the authority to force a state to redefine marriage and it’s high time that out of control judges were put in their place. We call on other states to similarly order their state’s officials to enforce state marriage laws.”
In light of the Tuesday ruling from the state Supreme Court, the Mobile County Probate Court has decided they would not be issuing any marriage licenses — to same-sex couples or otherwise — while they review the state Supreme Court’s decision.
