    not at all that is religious discrimination and against the law. religious beliefs are a protected class.




    I know you don't care you prove it every post you make. that still doesn't mean what you think is correct.
    the constitution and religious discrimination laws protects people religious views and rights.

    the government cannot force someone to violate those and they have to make reasonable accommodations.
    the first amendment protection their exercise of religion.
    Cite a case so we can all review the law and how it is applied in an actual factual situation. I might be wrong, but you saying I am isn't going to convince me. So help me understand the law by citing some actual law.

    OK, I read the opinion, and as I suggested earlier, if the clerk hands off SSM to the clerk sitting next to her and there is no delay or inconvenience, then as a practical matter that might be OK. But as the opinion all but admits, there has to be someone on duty who IS willing to issue the license and comply with the law.

    It looks like those who MAY but aren't required to conduct marriages (i.e. justices of the peace, etc.) can do all or none.

    That's all good so long as when a same sex couple shows up they get their license, and that's what the law will require.

    That's great. I'm going to get a few 12 year old Asian girls imported to be my wives.
    Wow, really?

    More likely buggered by the 50 year old Catholic priest, doncha think?

    They're both female so you'll probably disapprove. But, how does my marrying them affect you?
    They are not of legal age to sign a legal marriage contract, not in most states anyway. And such a legal arrangement would cause serious legal issues should one or both of them not wish to be with you (assuming they are able and willing to sign the marriage license with you) later down the road. There is no actual group limited in their marriage choices here.

    Yet you declare that gays should not get married. Are you afraid you will have to pay for it?

    Now that gay marriage has bee forced down our throats, how long do you think it will be before marriage at puberty is legalized as well?
    (Here's a hint, once someone realizes that and girl of breeding age can get an abortion they'll move to make allowing her to get married legal as well.)
    how do you come up with this idiocy?

    I am already paying for it. 55% of my property taxes go to a bloated school system that will now have it in their heads that they have to teach children that homosexuality is normal.
