Go ahead and sign off—it’s like carrying Monopoly money in your wallet anyway—it just ain’t real.
The DOMA is still the law of the land and when a conservative is in the WH,the DOJ will do it’s duty and uphold it—so the homosexuals are just playing house.
queers bullying for more lawsuits
I’m not in favor of gay marriage either, but if gay marriage is legal, and her duty is to sign this document, then she should either sign it, or resign.
Deirdre DiBiaggio, left, and Katie Carmichael argue that state law requires all clerks to give marriage licenses to gay couples.
Do not give them another excuse to draw attention to their perversion.
Treat them just like any other government form, that will piss them off more than anything.
It’s not up to a civil servant to determine which laws she will follow, repulsive as the associated action’s request may be. I believe the saying is “I don’t pay you to think.” If conscience dictates she can’t perform a duty, she should resign.
This situation is quite different than a priest refusing to give the sacrament or a doctor in a Catholic or other religious hospital refusing to commit an abortion. Throughout history individuals have payed far greater prices for maintaining their convictions.
A solution might, if this were an elected position, for her to resign and then run again with her beliefs in full view. If she were to be re-elected with support of the population, she would be able to claim she represents the will of the voters.
Would be helpful if the story told the actual amount of time that the signature would be delayed waiting for an appointment with the deputy clerk.
I expect the time was minimal, hence it was purposel;y omitted by the Times.
We have a Lesbian couple near me. They “married in Mass.,because it isn’t legal here. They may think they are accpeted, but in actuality they are the subject of jokes and laughter.
Their marriage is merely a sham, there is no marriage, just a joke.
It ain’t her job to decide what she will allow.
You should not need religion to object.
ANYONE for ANY reason should be able to avoid doing the homosexual based marriages.
You want to know why this bullcrap is happening in the rural and beautiful Finger Lakes Region of NY?
Because Ledyard is about 25 minutes North of ITHACA. That’s why.
I bet you dollars to donuts the dykes are somehow connected to ITHACA.
The City Of Evil is like a spreading infectious boil on what is otherwise a a very beautiful and very conservative region.
