Now Liberty Counsel INSISTS that they won what they lost

Mat Staver - Liberty Counsel
On Friday I posted “Liberty Counsel claims they won what they lost.” Essentially, while providing 170 pages of venting by judges who don't like “homosexual ‘marriage,’” the Alabama Supreme Court conceded the reality that the ruling by the Supreme Court of the United States in Obergefell v. Hodges represents the law of the land. States do not get to nullify rulings that they do not like. Liberty Counsel believed otherwise.

Now Liberty Counsel, which is a designated anti-gay hate group comes out with another email. Imagine my surprise to learn that: “Alabama Supreme Court DID Reject U.S. Supreme Court Marriage Opinion.” The media got it all wrong.
Montgomery, AL - Last Friday the Alabama Supreme Court rejected the U.S. Supreme Court's 5-4 marriage opinion, but some media erroneously reported the exact opposite. Below we demonstrate the fact that the Judgment issued last Friday rejected the U.S. Supreme Court marriage opinion.
This all goes on and on for many paragraphs and it is demonstrably wrong. Yet even if hate group leader Mat Staver is correct, it doesn't matter. A federal judge in Alabama required the issuance of marriage licenses before Obergefell and that ruling is still in place. Those who frustrate the ruling of a federal court face consequences. Sadly, Mr. Staver does not although I would argue that his conduct in the Kim Davis matter (telling her to ignore a court order) should have subjected him to discipline.
