    The Mormon Church staked a deeper claim to middle ground in American society on Tuesday, advocating for compromises between protecting religious liberties and prohibiting discrimination, and criticizing Kentucky clerk Kim Davis for refusing to license gay marriages. The Mormons chose Oaks, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles that guides The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, to give the speech. Oaks declared himself devoted to both church doctrine and the laws of a democratic society. But when conflicts between them arise and are decided, citizens of a democracy must follow court rulings, he said.

    Two more GOP presidential candidates have chimed in on the issue of whether Rowan County clerk Kim Davis must provide marriage licenses for same-sex couples. While three candidates have publicly supported Davis' right to only provide marriage licenses for man-woman couples, three others have said she must do so or resign. This morning, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker told Laura Ingraham, "In the end, this is the balance that you gotta have to have in America, between the laws that are out there, but ultimately ensuring that the Constitution is upheld. I read that the Constitution is very clear that people...

    While reading about that clerk, a thought occurred to me. Suppose a devout Muslim was a cook at a government cafeteria. And suppose pork chops were on the menu that day. Would the muslim be forced to handle the pork chops, or would he be excused from that particular duty?

    I thought it would be interesting to look at the laws by which elected County Clerk of Rowan, Kentucky was elected to abide by. The County Clerk does much more than just issue marriage licenses. This document, Duties of Elected County Officials details the various duties. Concerning marriage licenses this is what it says:The county clerk issues marriage licenses (KRS 402.080) and files and records all marriage certificates (KRS 402.220 and 402.230). Military discharges may also be recorded in the county clerk’s office (KRS 422.090). On or before the 10th day of each month, the county clerk reports to the...
