Judge Says Supreme Court Is Too Flawed To Make A Decision On Same Sex Marriage

Recently, Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore received a “Letter from the Birmingham Jail Courage Award,” from the Coalition of African-American Pastors.

In his acceptance speech, he thanked the organization, but also compared segregation laws to the current fight for marriage equality.

In his speech, he referenced Plessy v. Ferguson, which is the court case that upheld the constitutionality of racial segregation. He also referenced Dredd Scott v. Sandford, which found that slaves and free black people weren't American citizens.

From these references, Moore argued that Supreme Court decisions had been deeply flawed in the past and that could still be the case today. He went on to say “The other states have been forced by courts to distance themselves from their laws and attitudes regarding marriage. The problem is that federal courts have no authority in that area. Marriage isn't based on love. Marriage is based on law."
