Pat Gray Unleashed

The State of Alabama may soon allow couples to marry without a marriage license and perform a wedding ceremony however their faith sees fit.  Pat is a fan of removing government from marriage, but could this policy really take effect?

Current state law says probate judges may issue the licenses, but it doesn't say they're obligated to.

"Why is the government involved in it at all?" asserted Pat on Wednesday's episode of "Pat Gray Unleashed."

According to Fox News,

After the U.S. Supreme Court’s Obergefell ruling, then-Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore instructed probate judges to use their power to deny same-sex couples marriage certificates. The conflicting orders led to Moore’s suspension from the court.

Albritton’s legislation, which was approved by Alabama’s Senate on Jan. 16, would end the practice of probate judges issuing marriage licenses to anyone.
