Ku Klux Klan hails Alabama justice for attempting to block ‘fudgepacker’ marriages

The chief justice of Alabama, who has been attempting to stop judges from marrying same-sex couples, has found some probably unwanted support in the Ku Klux Klan.

Despite that legally, same-sex couples should have been able to marry from Monday in Alabama, Roy Moore instructed judges not to issue marriage licences to gay and lesbian couples.

Moore also threatened probate judges with legal action if they did marry same-sex couples.

The Ku Klux Klan in Mississippi has since put out a statement saying: “The Mississippi Klan salutes Alabama’s chief justice Roy Moore, for refusing to bow to the yoke of Federal tyranny. The Feds have no authority over individual States marriage laws. The fudgepackers from Hollywood and all major news networks are in shock that the good people from the heart of Dixie are resisting their Imperialist, Communist Homosexual agenda!”

District court Judge Callie VS Granade ruled last month that the state’s ‘Sanctity of Marriage Amendment’ – which defined marriage as between a man and a woman – was unconstitutional.

The chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court previously encouraged judges to flout the ruling. 

Justice Roy Moore said in an order that judges in the state are not required to obey the ruling.
