For people to be salivating over the idea of firing someone is just appalling. So much for compassion. I find it disturbing.
If the town clerk is the only person who can give you a liquor license then you have to go above that person's head, it's up to whomever he/she works for to deal with it. These ridiculous hypotheticals always pop up and they are always finger in throat nauseating. People who have religious beliefs - and I'm not one of them - are not the boogeymen.
