‘Unwilling to comply with a federal court ruling that struck down Alabama’s same-sex marriage ban, state Republicans are fast-tracking a bill that would allow judges across the state to pick and choose who gets married’.
‘The Freedom of Religion in Marriage Protection Act, also known as HB 56, has sailed through the statehouse judiciary committee and is now being debated by the legislature’.
‘The bill also grants religious and public officials immunity from civil lawsuits and criminal prosecution if they choose to discriminate against a couple who wants to marry’.
‘Basically, if a judge has a problem with interracial marriage, they can refuse to perform the ceremony’.
‘The clerk could also refuse to issue a marriage license’.
‘The same scenario could also occur if the judge hates Jewish people, or Muslims, or atheists’.
‘For example, remember when a Virginia court official told an atheist couple they couldn’t get married because they didn’t believe in God’?
‘Yeah, just imagine that happening across the country to anyone who isn’t a heterosexual white Christian’.

Republican Rep. Don Young from Alaska :
“How many of you have got wolves in your district?” he asked. “None. None. Not one.”
“They haven’t got a damn wolf in their whole district,” Young continued. “I’d like to introduce them in your district. If I introduced them in your district, you wouldn’t have a homeless problem anymore.”
