Oh, and I thought we wouldn't see an overturn of DADT?
Yeah, in the gay marriage department and presidential department, you're not batting well at all on your predictions.
Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.
The clerk did the wrong thing. Unlike NM where there is no definition of marriage as being between a man and a woman where the clerks who are handing out marriage licenses to gay couples are doing the right thing, in PA the clerk does have a job to do and should be following through as per the law. We do not get to decide which laws we get to follow and which laws we do not, which is why after gay marriage is passed any state employee who has it within their job description and responsibilities to perform the marriage ceremony should be forced to do marry gays as part of their job as a state employee. The sword will cut both ways eventually, and we will wait to see the hypocrisy of many in this thread when they endorse a judge refusing to marry a gay couple as part of their job responsibilities and state law. Even though i like what the clerk did he stepped way outside of his job and I should say deserves to be terminated for not upholding the laws he was tasked to. I will also endorse pulling any employee from their position for denying to marry gays when they are legally allowed to be.
If you knowingly fail to do your job properly you need to go find one you can do. As for those who think gay marriage is not coming, you are doomed. perhaps a quick and swift death to your hateful morals would decrease your prolonged suffering and get gays on with the rest of their lives which would be best all around, but if you want to fight it for a slow suffering agonizing loss I have some popcorn and plenty of time top watch people like NP whine and have meltdowns time and time again as their hate gets stomped 50 times. Actually 52 if you consider DOMA and DADT.
