In a historic ruling, the Supreme Court of Alabama, by a 7-1 decision, affirmed natural marriage and ordered Alabama’s probate judges to immediately stop issuing illegal marriage licenses to same-sex couples. This is a direct challenge to U.S. District Court Judge who ruled to overturn Alabama’s marriage amendment.

The decision stated that “Government is concerned with public effects, not private wishes.” And if marriage was based solely on “love,” “then polygamy also would be constitutionally protected.”

The Court said: “It could not be clearer that … the people of Alabama — have an interest in the respondents’ faithful compliance with Alabama’s marriage laws.
