The Alabama Supreme Court was recently overruled by the Supreme Court of the United States of America.

A reminder that the Alabama Supreme Court is home to Judge Roy Moore (pictured) and his Ten Commandments monument that eventually was removed from the Supreme Court building after he literally snuck it in there at 4:30 in the morning.

But back to the current case....

It was a case where two women who had raised children together split up. The biological mother of the three children had consented to have her partner adopt the children in Georgia as part of their family relationship.

The adoptive mother sued in Alabama court for visitation rights and the Supreme Court of Alabama said, as they so often have in the past, "No, because you are gay."

On March 7, the Supreme Court of the United States said to the Alabama Court, "Nuh uh, the adoption was a legal thing in Georgia and you have to accept that."

So last Friday, the Alabama Supreme Court said "FINE! SHOVE IT DOWN OUR THROATS ALREADY LIKE YOU ALWAYS DO."

There was no comment from the Alabama Court about what took them so long.

Please note these are not direct quotes from the court documents. But here IS a direct quote from the Alabama Court:

"Inasmuch as there is no merit in E.L.'s [the biological mother's] other arguments asking this court not to enforce the adoption decree, we affirm the judgment of the Court of Civil Appeals."

In other words, they only stopped the visitation because of the gay thing. And they admit it.
