Civil rights groups seek class action status, demand for marriage equality in Alabama

Source: LGBTQ Nation

MOBILE, Ala. — A group of civil rights organizations has filed a motion asking a federal judge to order Alabama probate judges to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples and to add plaintiffs to the suit challenging the state’s same-sex marriage ban.

The request, filed as part of a lawsuit brought by five same-sex couples who previously obtained an order from the same court requiring issuance of marriage licenses in Mobile County, seeks class-action status that would include all same-sex couples in Alabama who wish to marry and have their marriage recognized by the state.

The motion requests that the federal district court expand their lawsuit to cover all county probate judges in the state.

In Alabama, probate judges are responsible for issuing marriage licenses, and the filing asks the federal district court order to require all probate judges to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

7. Roy Moore rules that state SC.

He's not just a fundy whack job, he's racist and likes to ignore federal rulings, like his ugly rock being ordered to be removed, remember that?

8. Besides of being a criminal dumping ground from Europe

America was also a haven for outcast religious groups. Moore reminds me of the evil dressing up as a Christian.

Evils of history, those who ignore it shall re-live it.
