Alabama’s chief justice still wants to ban same-sex marriage

Alabama’s chief justice still wants to ban same-sex marriage | United States Politics | Scoop.it

WHEN the Supreme Court recognised a right for same-sex couples to marry in June 2015, the deep south took the news rather hard. No state was more piqued than Alabama, the least enthusiastic in the country about expanding marriage laws to include gays and lesbians. And no state has a chief justice as shamelessly recalcitrant as the cartoon character known as Roy Moore. On January 6th, Judge Moore—think of a clean-shaven Yosemite Sam with a gavel—ordered probate judges in Alabama to abide by a 134-page ruling of the Alabama Supreme Court issued on March 3rd according to which “probate judges have a ministerial duty not to issue any marriage licence contrary to the Alabama Sanctity of Marriage Amendment or Alabama Marriage Protection Act”. In other words: gay and lesbian couples need not apply. This 10-month-old ruling “remains in full force and effect” pending another ruling from the unhurried Alabama Supreme Court that will decide how last summer’s US Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v Hodgesimpacts the law of marriage in Alabama.

The Supreme Court Is Losing Public Approval and Prestige

The Supreme Court Is Losing Public Approval and Prestige | United States Politics | Scoop.it

The Supreme Court begins its term this year with a smorgasbord of ideologically tasty morsels, including cases on affirmative action, labor rights, the death penalty, religion, and probably abortion. The court has never been more aggressive about resolving the country’s political debates. And yet it is ideologically polarized and more unpopular than it has been in quite a while.

Camron Rauch's curator insight, October 26, 2015 8:08 PM

1. In summary, this article explains how the majority of American citizens, about 53 percent, are unsatisfied with the job that our supreme justices are doing. The court got some of its trust stripped away due to the decisions it made in controversial cases, such as the Citizens United Case. The decisions these justices made revealed their political backgrounds, even though they shouldn't affiliate themselves with a certain party. Often ending in 5-4 decisions, the justices appointed by Democrats oppose the views of those appointed by Republicans. As a result, the people find it hard to place their trust in them because they are each concerned with their own political agenda.

2. In class, we learned about the concept of checks and balances which plays an intricate role in this situation. If the judicial branch becomes too powerful, Congress can step in.

3. The author was biased against the supreme court justices.
