title : Same-Sex Marriage Licenses Halted by Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore
summary : Despite a U.S. Supreme Court landmark ruling last June that legalized gay marriage, Chief Justice Roy Moore of the Alabama Supreme Court ordered the state's probate judges Wednesday not to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, based on legal analysis about ministerial duties still being debated in Alabama. Gay marriage activists and legal experts are attacking the order, arguing same-sex couples have the right to marry in all 50 states. Many Christians are voicing support of Moore's stance, indicating they are relieved he is "upholding God's law."
