Should Christians obey judge-made law and submit to the homosexual lobby or stand up and refuse? A few judges in Alabama have decided to resist.
Rather than cave, the judges will oppose the assault on decency and the Christian faith. After a court struck down the state’s voter-approved marriage-protection law, other courts in the state began issuing “marriage” licenses to homosexuals.
After a court denied an appeal on the matter, Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore told probate judges throughout the state that they weren’t required to participate in the farce.
An excerpt of the statement (via the Christian News Network):
“Lower federal courts are without authority to impose their own interpretation of federal constitutional law upon the state courts. Not only is the Mobile federal court acting without constitutional authority, but it is doing so in a manner inconsistent with the Eleventh Amendment to the United States Constitution.”
“I’m not going to be a party to it,” Geneva County Probate Judge Fred Hamic said. “I was raised in a Christian home, and I was taught that it is a sin.”
Clarke County Probate Judge Valerie Davis said, “I do not think I am required to compromise my religious beliefs to be probate judge. Alabama law does not mandate me to issue marriage licenses to anyone of any gender.”
I’m not required to do that,” Chilton County Judge Bobby Martin said. “Some judges will choose to continue performing marriages and they can continue to do that.”
In his refusal to cave, Elmore County Probate Judge John Enslen used strong words, calling homosexual behavior “repugnant and repulsive to God…In other words, I believe Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed for just such unnatural conduct between the same sexes.”
The U.S. Supreme Court, which will hear marriage cases this year, has ordered the state to comply and issue homosexual “marriage” licenses.
As America continues to slouch toward Sodom and Gomorrah, it will become more difficult for Christians to keep their jobs, especially if they’re paid by the government.
