    No, but you can worry about it.

    And we all know the law, don't we? You asked some hypotheticals and you got some answers. Don't be surprised when not everyone is as anxious to fire an employee as you are. Some people actually value their employees and don't want them to unnecessarily do something that will upset them or make them uncomfortable.

    You just proved you don't really value your employees though. You are willing to give special exceptions to some employees, forcing others to make up that work because of their feelings.

    Because some of those people may want to deny issuing a marriage license to people entering into second or subsequent marriages.

    And again, irrelevant. I said to AW that in my state you can't get a license issued when your current status is "married". Please pay attention, thank you.

    Maybe some day you can be a senior manager like me and you'll get to hire and fire a bunch of religious people.

    He wasn't talking about getting a license with a current legal status of marriage. He was talking about a clerk whose religious beliefs were that divorces were invalid and it would be adultery for someone to get remarried after a divorce.

    The user name "americanwoman"....and you're calling her a "he".

    Here's what she said, which was about current status of marriage when applying for licenses:

    Please stop quoting me. You really really annoy me and I'm so tired of having to explain things to you 100 times before you get it. Thanks.
