    Not in a legal respect. In a "he doesn't like it" respect.

    NY Times had a piece out today saying basically the same thing. SCOTUS dicked this one up.

    The probate judge that was the subject of the Thursday hearing has begun issuing licenses in response to the order. The end of this fight is clear so don't fret! =)

    The Alabama opinion failed to demonstrate any causal link (aka rational relation) between banning same sex marriages and the cited government interests. That is to say, the ban doesn't actually further those interests in any way. They are not rationally related. The reasoning is not sound in any way. It is completely without legal basis or factual support and is ultimately just an arbitrary decision based on this one unelected official's personal prejudices.

    ....

    1. Judge Moore is elected

    2. The reasoning under discussion is not about actual gay marriage, but the federal district courts' ruling, which is not binding on the state.

    In all likelihood, yes. But Granade presides only over the southern portion of the state, so technically-speaking, most of the probate judges in the state are not required to abide by the decision, and cannot be forced to do so per this district court ruling.

    Are you denying that the probate judge began issuing the order? You're the one who cited a left coast rag.
