Three Tennessee counties are debating resolutions calling for an override of the Supreme Court's June finding that gay and lesbian couples have a constitutional right to marry.

Four counties – Sullivan, Greene, Johnson and McMinn – have already approved similar resolutions to those being considered by Hawkins, Carter and Unicoi counties, the Johnson City Press reported.

Christian conservative group the Family Action Council of Tennessee is pushing counties to approve the resolutions.

The non-binding resolutions ask the Tennessee General Assembly to uphold the state's constitutional amendment which excludes gay couples from marrying and to ignore the high court's “lawless” decision in Obergefell v. Hodges as “a binding precedent for any parties other than those involved” in the case.

Counties are considering two versions of the resolution, one of which is described as “more constitutionally sound” by its authors.

Unicoi County Commissioner Glenn White said that the resolution was the first step toward calling for a constitutional convention to override the Supreme Court on the issue.
