Chris Sevier, an extreme anti-LGBTQ activist who has previously attempted to sue House Representatives for displaying rainbow flags, is now taking legal action to have his marriage to his laptop recognized by the state of Alabama. He is doing so in order to protest the "moral relativst[s]" of the Supreme Court who legalized same-sex marriages.
Sevier has taken out a series of stunt suits against the states of Texas, Utah, and Colorado, according to AL.com. At one point, he attempted through legal action to force a baker to make him a wedding cake in celebration of his computer bride.
Sevier, a lawyer and EDM artist, also has a notable criminal background. He has previously been charged with stalking and harassing country singer John Rich and an unnamed 17-year-old girl, according to an extensive report from The Daily Beast.
This latest suit was filed in Alabama's Northern District on August 31. Sevier alleges that his rights were violated by Governor Kay Ivey, Attorney General Steve Marshall and Blount County Probate Judge Chris Green.
"Defendant Green issues marriage licenses to individuals who self-identify as homosexual, but he refuses to issue marriage licenses to zoophiles, machinists, and polygamists license on a basis that can only be described as procedurally arbitrary," the complaint states.
John Gunter Jr., Whitney Kohl and Joan Grace Harley, who identify as polygamists, are also named as plaintiffs in the suit.
Judge Green had previously denied marriage licenses to polygamists. "I just said I wouldn't do that in Blount County. No way, no how," he said.
The complaint states that Alabama has given special treatment to gays and lesbians that are not extended to polygamists and "machinists." The suit also describes the Supreme Court as "moral relativist [sic] who have infiltrated the bench like a cancer [and] cannot be permitted to monkey with the Fourteenth Amendment just because they believe that 'the ends justify the means.'"
"In Alabama, the probate Judges are issuing marriage licenses to self-identified homosexuals based on their sexual orientation or self-asserted sex-based identity narrative. The governor and state officials are providing full marriage benefits and privileges to leally self-identified homosexuals but not to self-identified polygamists and machinists for procedural and moral reason," says Sevier.
“The case is not a ploy to undermine same-sex marriage rights,” he has previously claimed. “It is a demand that the courts restore Constitutional integrity.”
