    Which of the following hypothetical public employees should be fired?

    OK, this is a multiple choice, so select all that you feel applies. Which of the hypothetical public employees should be fire or moved to a different position for not doing their job?

    Yeh, this doesn't have any affect on religious freedom at all.

    I see states stopping the marriage licence business all together over this.

    They should all be fired... don't do a job you don't believe in...

    I don't think a priest that is qualified to marry people should be forced to marry a gay couple though...

    The clerk should not be factoring in religion. The clerk should not know the persons religion. If your religion prevents you from doing a job, why would you apply for that job?

    That would never happen in the United States. Marriage law only relates to the state's role in it. Churches have always had the right to marry who they chose to. For example, if you are Catholic and are divorced, the church will not recognize your second marriage even though the state does.

    All four. We need less government anyway.

    I don't know, I suppose some fundamentalists have a very weak work ethic and thus are looking for any excuse not to do the job they are paid to do.

    None of the above if there is someone else who can cover for him/her. If he/she is the ultimate decision maker than I think he/she should be removed or transferred.

    I have 10 people who work for me and there have been times and different reasons that they can't/won't work with a customer. I get someone else to cover. It isn't a big deal.

    I can't see the difference between any of those options. Clearly the employee in each of those scenarios entered into their position being unprepared to fulfill the duties of his job.
