Alabama Counties Stop Issuing Marriage Licenses Indefinitely

Pike County officials haven't issued marriage licenses in months, and today Probate Judge Wes Allen announced that his office is now permanently out of the marriage business.

"My office discontinued issuing marriage licenses in February and I have no plans to put Pike County back into the marriage business," Allen wrote in a statement. "The policy of my office regarding marriage is no different today than it was yesterday."

Geneva County Probate Judge Fred Hamic also said he intends to permanently close the marriage license bureau in his office, if his attorneys don't object.

Both judges cited Alabama Code Section 30-1-9: "Marriage licenses may be issued by the judges of probate of the several counties."

The law says "may" instead of "shall", Hamic said, which makes a big difference. He said the law permits probate judges to opt of of isuing marriage licenses.

All states should get out of the marriage business and pass the responsibility to the Federal government. Here's a thought, Only churches and the SCOTUS can hold ceremonies and issue licenses.

great idea!!!!

Makes sense to me.

Good for them. I think every state that has a law against gay marriage should quit issuing marriage licenses!!!

finally, judges with balls, how do you like that Obama.

he actually enjoys blackmailing Judges, ask Justice Roberts.

IMO: Imposing the issuance of marriage licenses and performing ceremony to the churches would be betrayal to biblical teachings; and same churches have already stated they will not comply and will go to jail if that's what happens. 

States...(the voice of the Governors) should proclaim to stand on the 10th Amendment of U.S. Constitution which reads: "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the People".

Everyone should be calling their Governors Monday...and make their voices heard.   

The deadly serpent seed will do anything to destroy a nation.

God formed the beginning of the family....man and woman.  A civilized nation need the family unit to survive. 

Until we as a nation turn back to God's Word, instructions, wisdom, the nation will continue to decline.

What are they going to do when these freaks take it to the next step and want to marry their pet or their daughter or son don't think these freaks of nature will stop with gay unions these Queers will keep on until they control all types of unions. The next for these dopes is to try to sue the churches for refusing to marry them 

Or wait til the Muslims take over men will be able to have 35 wives

when moslems take over the homosexuals will be killed immediately because diaperheads don't care what a judge says about the issue!!!!!

THE METHOD OF MARRIAGE, PRACTICED BY CHURCHES, IS NOT BIBLICAL, IT  IS DERIVED FROM PRACTICING "MAN'S TRADITIONS", BASED ON THEIR LOOSE "INTERPRETATION", OF THE INSTRUCTIONS, IN THE BIBLE. THEIR PRACTICES OF ISSUING A LICENSE, IS EXACTLY, AGAINST GOD'S TRUE METHOD OF MARRIAGE, AND MAKES THE STATE OF ISSUE, ALSO A PARTNER IN THE SO CALLED TRANSACTION. THEREFOR ANYONE MARRIED ACCORDING TO MAN'S TRADITION, IS IN DIRECT VIOLATION OF GOD'S WORD, AND IN HIS EYES, IS NOT MARRIED.  TO FIND GOD'S METHOD OF MARRIAGE, READ GENISIS 24, THE LAST FEW VERSES OF THE CHAPTER, AND PAY PARTICULAR ATTENTION TO VERSE 67, IT HOLDS THE KEY TO HAPPY MARRIAGES, AND GOD'S TYPE OF RESPONSIBILITY.

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.

You don't get to interrupt me
