The Supreme Court on Friday kept mum on Alabama's request to delay Monday's implementation of two rulings striking down the state's ban on gay marriage.

U.S. District Judge Callie “Ginny” Granade declared the state's ban unconstitutional in two similar cases, both of which are set to take effect Monday unless the high court intervenes.

Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange turned to the Supreme Court after the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta refused to delay implementation of Granade's rulings. In a separate amicus brief filing with the court, Republican Governor Robert Bentley urged the court to grant Strange's request, arguing that allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry in Alabama would “invite chaos.”

If Alabama begins issuing marriage licenses to gay couples on Monday, it will become the 37th state, plus the District of Columbia, to do so.

Meanwhile, thousands of people are asking Strange to drop his appeals in the cases.
