Last week, liberals everywhere rejoiced when the Supreme Court ruled that gay marriage would be legalized in every state. However, this week it was revealed that these liberals may have started celebrating too soon…
Yesterday, we reported that the the Supreme Court’s ruling may be overturned thanks to a new bill proposed by the GOP. Now, individual states are rebelling against the ruling, letting the government know that they aren’t going to be performing same-sex marriages anytime soon.
Immediately after the ruling, officials in the state of Mississippi immediately started thinking of a way to throw it in Obama’s face. Today, they have figured it out: according to Conservative Tribune, Mississippi officials are considering getting rid of marriage licenses altogether.
“I personally can see pros and cons to that,” State House Judiciary Chairman Andy Gipson told the press. “I don’t know if it would be better to have no marriage certificate sponsored by the state or not, but it’s an option out there to be considered.”
Gipson, who is also a Baptist minister, told reporters that the Supreme Court can’t change the conviction of “most Mississippians” that “marriage is defined by God as the union of one man and one woman.”
“As Bible-believing Christians, we will not change or alter our religious convictions to suit the whims of the court or the culture,” he concluded.
Mississippi House Speaker Philip Gunn agreed, adding that the Supreme Court’s “decision is in direct conflict with God’s design for marriage as set forth in the Bible.”
As of Monday, Mississippi was only issuing marriage licenses to heterosexual couples, and officials were waiting for the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals to follow up on the Supreme Court’s decision and lift their own ban on gay marriage. However, once this stay is lifted, it looks like nobody will be getting married in Mississippi whether they are gay or straight.
