Chief Justice of Alabama's Supreme Court Issues Order Banning Gay Marriage in the State

He says there's "confusion" in the courts on the issue, which I don't think is really true; the US Supreme Court was clear.

Still, I can't say I mind a little rebellion here and there.

Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore cited conflicting rulings and said until they are resolved, a prior directive from March telling judges to comply with the state’s gay marriage ban would remain in effect.

He wrote: "Until further decision by the Alabama Supreme Court, the existing orders of the Alabama Supreme Court that Alabama probate judges have a ministerial duty not to issue any marriage license contrary to the Alabama Sanctity of Marriage Amendment or the Alabama Marriage Protection Act remain in full force and effect."
