    You really think that being a spelling nazi somehow adds validity to your failed arguments? Why not try offering support to your outlandish claims first? It would demonstrate intellect...

    I already did that. You're just feeling the D-K effect.

    I don't see why this necessarily leads to lawsuits, or why it can't be done in a way that avoids contempt charges. So long as there is someone in the office that can issue licenses, it doesn't really matter much if it's Bob or Barbara taking care of you. It only turns into a problem if they're not issuing licenses to one group altogether (i.e. all clerks claim a religious exemption).

    The suggestion of lawsuits came from AG Paxton. He told employees they can refuse to issue licenses and if later lawsuits occurred there would be a legal to team to defend them. The Attorney General spoke about this. Religious views would not be an excuse for doing your job. Not doing the job you were hired for by non issuance of a license might be illegal Paxton must think.

    This is worthless posturing since gay couples have already been married in dallas, and that's just the first google link i saw. So in other words every gay couple can just travel to dallas to get the license. Again, they shouldn't have to, but this notion that SSM doesn't exist in texas currently, thanks to this pissant, is 100% false

    No it's not the "not their job part," it's contempt of the supreme court. They will most definitely be sued and arrested, and i doubt any clerk is going to take that chance just because some politician wants media attention

    They aren't going to stop gay couples in texas from marrying anyway - all they need for that is one clerk somewhere - so it's all delusional

    Sorry....but there is no enumerated right to be a bigot.
