    The state can still appoint someone else to do it.

    Good for her. It'll set the groundwork for states with intelligent political representatives to tell Obama to go fist himself on October 1, if they decide to fight Obamacare.

    No, she had the duty to defend the constitution against a law like this.

    You can stop drooling because PPACA is a federal law, not state.

    Doesn't matter. We'll still see a fight, hopefully.

    If not...then I guess I support this woman jailed.

    5.) I don't see why this should be controversial.
    1.) and per her job description and laws she fulfilled that duty 100%, she aslo has a duty to defend both federal and local consitutions
    2.) meaninglessness to the thread
    3.) yes it is fine no matter you opinion on the matter because thats the law
    4.) thats not a problem at all since thats not happening, nor is it necessarily true.
    5.) I agree but for some reason you seem to think it is

    I very much respect this woman for standing up for her principles. I believe she should leave her job because it is her job to defend the state's laws. However, great to see her standing up for what she believes is right. Tough call on her part.
    She took an oath of office to defend the law and the state constitution. This woman is a fraud who should be thrown out of office.

    There is nothing principled or moral about gay marriage. Gay marriage is a sham and an abomination.

    but gay marriage is not illiegal in some states.

    It does matter. Because the task of defending Obamacare would fall to the Federal government. Not the states. Unless you think the Obama administration is going to elect not to defend Obamacare...

    She was doing that. Defending the state and Federal constitution against an unconstitutional law. (by not defending that law in court)

    The real abomination before God is your judgment and condemnation of the love others share. Do you really think He grants you this authority?
