4:05pm ET - Last Friday, U.S. District
Court Judge Callie Granade declared that Alabama’s ban on marriage equality was
unconstitutional; however on Sunday she issued a two-week stay on her ruling,
meaning that couples in Alabama will have to wait a bit longer to wed. Her
order gives the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals until Feb. 9 to decide
whether to continue the delay. Although,
as one might expect not everyone in the Yellowhammer State is thrilled about
the coming equality; following this historic decision some conservative politicians
have made disparaging comments about LGBT people and their right to marry,
which caused Alabama's only openly gay legislator, Rep. Patricia Todd, to put her anti-gay colleagues on notice,
saying that if they keep espousing family values rhetoric as a reason to oppose
marriage equality, she'll start making their marital infidelities public. Rep. Todd joins us today to discuss marriage
equality in Alabama and the opposition to it.
