ALABAMA (NEWSWATCH33) – Despite the Supreme Court ruling on legalizing same-sex marriages in all 50 states, Alabama refuses to accept the decision, placing a 30-day ban on same-sex marriage licenses. To add to their fight against same-sex marriage, some Alabama officials are attempting to ban the popular candy, Skittles, “Taste The Rainbow” commercials because they believe it advocates same-sex acceptance.
The Alabama Supreme Court immediately ordered probate judges not to issue same-sex marriage licenses for 25 days. The Supreme Court picked this time frame because that is the amount of time the state has to file a petition to rehear the U.S. Supreme Court decision. Despite any petition period, Alabama must adhere to the U.S. Supreme Court decision as federal law supersedes state law.
