In Testimonium...

Most distressing about the recent declarations pertaining to marriages in Alabama is that the highest court in these United States declined to stay a federal injunction preventing the Alabama Attorney General from enforcing several provisions of his state's law defining marriage as a legal union of one man and one woman. A dissenting opinion observed that "when courts declare state laws unconstitutional and enjoin state officials from enforcing them, our ordinary practice is to suspend those injunctions from taking effect pending appellate review" and expressed concern that "this acquiescence may well be seen as a signal of the Court's intended resolution of that question."

Please read that last phrase again carefully.
