"The Supreme Court's decision in Obergefell
mandating same-sex marriage throughout the nation is not only wrong, but illegitimate. The oaths that elected officials take is to 'the Constitution,' not to 'the Supreme Court,' and it is high time that 'that eminent tribunal' be reminded that the very essence of its authority comes from the Constitution.

, in a joint press release urging the Alabama Supreme Court to act on the demand
filed earlier this month by the Liberty Counsel.
