US District Court Judge Granade issues permanent order in support of gay ‘marriage’

BIRMINGHAM — U.S. District Court Judge Callie V.S. Granade issued a June 7 order attempting to ensure same-sex “marriage” in all 67 Alabama counties.

Granade’s June order was issued in the Strawser v. Alabama case, a lawsuit filed by same-sex couples seeking marriage equality.

“Given the actions by Alabama state and local officials during this litigation, both before and after the Supreme Court decided Obergefell (the national same-sex ‘marriage’ case), it cannot be said with assurance that there is no reasonable expectation that Alabama’s unconstitutional marriage laws will not again be enforced,” Granade wrote in the order.
