Alabama Supreme Court: Stop Issuing Same-Sex Marriage Licenses

0
(WDEF) The Alabama Supreme Court is ordering the state’s probate judges to stop issuing marriage licenses to gay couples.
     The court sided with conservative organizations Tuesday in ruling that the U.S. Constitution doesn’t alter the judges’ duty to administer state law.
     The court says Alabama defined marriage as between only one man and one woman for about 200 years.
     And it says a federal court used "sleight of hand" in a case that resulted in most of Alabama allowing gay marriage last month.
