Alabama’s Supreme Court ordered the state’s probate judges to stop issuing licenses to marry to LGBT couples.  The decision was a “slap-to-the-face” to federal judges in Alabama and elsewhere who overturned bans on so-called same-sex marriage where they argued that such bans were a violation of the Constitution.

The court which is composed of Republicans sided with organizations seeking to protect the family and the institution of marriage between one man and one woman.  The judges ruled stating that the US Constitution does not give the authority to judges to reject state law.  They must administer it, which in this case only defines marriage between one man and one woman.  The ruling was worded in a 134-page document.

This is good news and hopefully will inspire the United States Supreme Court to side with traditional marriage.  It is unAmerican and wrong for unelected men and women to decide the law of the land. What is the point of having legislative bodies or voting if unelected judges can decide the laws of our nation?  We must stop this judicial activism before it destroys our nation.
