That will not happen. The arrangement which was made setup a schedule for ALL marriage licenses to be signed by the deputy, with a set, posted scheduled of days available and hours of operation.

I doubt it's this simple. If the position of Town Clerk allowed her to legally pass these duties on to some other entity within local government as a matter of policy, she wouldn't need a lawyer or the argument that New York is required to accommodate her religious beliefs.

The deputy was already signing the licenses when she was on break or when she was out of the office. They just made arrangements for the deputy to do this on a regular basis. So, it was completely within the rights of the local government to make such arrangements.

...she wouldn't need a lawyer...
The reason she needs a lawyer is because these mentally-diseased women didn't like the town setting up an hours of operation to accommodate them. They want THIS WOMAN to be forced to sign their license, even though they have no right to demand who signs it or when they operate their hours.

... or the argument that New York is required to accommodate her religious beliefs.
You do realize that all US government offices and US companies are required to make reasonable accommodations for ALL religious beliefs! If I hire a Muslim, knowing he is a Muslim, and I refuse to allow him to practice his five prayers a day, when I can reasonably accommodate him, then I am violating his rights! Companies have lost lawsuits concerning this very thing. Schools have been ordered to allow kids to take breaks to allow these prayers.

Accommodating religion is not a new thing! The only thing new/different is that these disturbed women think they have more rights than someone else. And even worse, they have a bully pulpit called the MSM with which they are allowed to spout their stupidity!

Bottom line, these women want to force this woman out of her job because she has a religious aversion to their lifestyle.

She has every right to have her job and she has every right to have a religious aversion to their depravity.

The city made legally allowed, reasonable accommodations to issue marriage licenses. These women are making it an issue because this clerk had the audacity to voice her religious beliefs.

That is the long and short of this entire story!
