MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - In response to my guest editorial last week suggesting that Alabama is fighting a losing battle against the federal courts on same sex marriage, we received these comments among others.
"It is time for those who oppose it to realize that they have lost that fight and justice has prevailed as it always has."
"The Republicans want to save tax money, but they are willing to spend it on this. Shame on them."
Another viewer commented:
"We the people of Alabama decided that we do not want gay marriage in our state…
We obviously said, 'NO!' There is nothing left to say."
"A State cannot win in a U.S. federal court on these issues. Leave our rights alone!"
"When the people vote to reject something by an 81% margin and then a judge just strikes it down… What is the point in voting? Wasting tax payers' dollars?
And Valerie commented:
"Well, I think the Supremacy Clause pretty much answers that, especially as it relates to civil rights and/or discrimination."
As always, we welcome your comments.
