On February 9th, I posted about Alabama being added to the list of states allowing same-sex marriages.
Yesterday morning however, the Alabama Supreme Court ordered judges to stop issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Judges now have five business days to respond to the order.
Personally, I don’t think it’s right to pass the law allowing same-sex marriages, then take it away just like that. All of these couples get their hopes up and are finally able to tie the knot, then in a blink of an eye their dreams are crushed.
Nebraska was also just added to the list of states allowing same-sex marriages.
The photo to the right was tweeted on Monday, March 2nd by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Nebraska congratulating the state for it’s progression.
There are now only 12 states that do not allow same-sex marriages (not including the recent ban in Alabama):
- North Dakota
- South Dakota
According the article linked in the above paragraph, Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky and Tennessee should be deciding sometime in June whether to lift the ban or not. I think it’s great that more and more states are lifting the ban on same-sex marriages. I understand that in the Bible, it is stated that the bond of marriage is between a man and a woman and nothing else.
Genesis 2:23-24 “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. God created man and then made woman to complement him.”
What I really think everyone needs to realize is that people have changed. Our society has changed. We might not like or want to accept the changes, but it’s going to happen regardless.
