    I never thought this would happen, but Alabama same-sex marriages will start today, barring any "midnight hour" backhanded political moves to block it at the last minute. Alabama will become the 37th state to allow/recognize same-sex marriage. If it can happen in Alabama, it can happen anywhere.

    Mobile, Alabama has always been one of the most progressive cities in the state. This decision came about because the Mobile County District Court ruled a ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional. I'm proud of my hometown!

    I thought Alabama's lunatic State Supreme Court Chief Justice, Roy Moore, had ordered the Federal Court decision not be obeyed. What's the status of his action?

    I don't think Roy Moore's decision will hold up. There are some protests around the state, but I think he is fighting a lost cause. If the probate judges follow his order they can be held in contempt. We will see how it plays out.
