Alabama Supreme Court Justice Tom Parker said Tuesday that he believes the Supreme Court overstepped its authority in striking down gay marriage bans in all 50 states.

Parker, a former Religious Right activist, made his remarks during an appearance on Bryan Fischer's AFA-sponsored radio program.

Parker said that the Supreme Court ruling was not needed since gay men and lesbians are not being denied their constitutional rights. He said that everyone is free to marry someone of the opposite sex.

He went on to call on state courts to defy the ruling in order to foment a “revival” that will return America to its founding principles.

“The states should be a check on the federal government, and the proper organ within a state to do that versus the U.S. Supreme Court would be a state supreme court,” Parker said. “Now, I doubt that it would be a blanket defiance of all jurisdiction on the U.S. Supreme Court, but in regards to the Obergefell decision where it's clear that they jumped outside of the precedents in order to impose their will on this country, that yes, resisting that decision could maybe start a revival of what we need in this country and return to our original founding principles.”

Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore is also an outspoken opponent of LGBT rights and the Supreme Court's summer decision.
