Explain it to me: Why is the SC Attorney General appealing to Chief Justice?November 19, 2014 - Author: steph - No Comments
The Attorney General in South Carolina is doing everything possible to stop gay and lesbian couples from getting married in his state. If nothing is done, then same-sex couples can get married in just a few days. The Supreme Court has decided not to get in the middle of this issue, and that’s the way that it should be as politics and personal life shouldn’t mix in some instances.This story was passed along to me via Facebook friend Susan McGalla.
Governors and other leaders in various states want someone else to make a decision for them about marriage. Why can’t they make their own decisions since the choice has been left up to the states instead of the Supreme Court? If they don’t want to see same-sex couples get married, then they should be able to stop them instead of needing to seek a higher power, especially when that higher power has already told them to handle the case.
I simply don’t understand. Can we start a discussion on this in the comments?
