    This ruling shows that freedom of religion falls behind gay rights in America. We are now the Sodom of the world.

    you guys can't be surprised.

    Once the ruling that same sex marriage was instituted, it would, of course, mean the clerks would have to comply.

    And, of course, same sex people are going to push it.

    This clerk needs to find another job.

    uh-oh

    A controversial US court clerk who has cited “God’s law” while refusing to issue same-sex marriages licenses has has herself been married four times, it has been revealed.

    Rowan County courthouse clerk Kim Davis has defied a US supreme court order demanding she issue marriage licenses to couples – both gay and straight – at her office in Kentucky.

    Davis, who was only elected clerk last fall, has publicly claimed her duty to God overrides the law of the United States.

    "To issue a marriage license which conflicts with God's definition of marriage, with my name affixed to the certificate, would violate my conscience."

    But records obtained by the Guardian show Davis has been divorced three times before she "surrendered" her life to religion, which she said happened four years ago. "Divorce is rare," according to a website on the Apostolic Christian religion, which Davis follows.

    "I am not perfect," Davis said. "No one is. But I am forgiven and I love my Lord and must be obedient to Him and the Word of God."

    Acts 5
    27
    And when they had brought them, they set them before the council: and the high priest asked them,
    28 Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man's blood upon us.
    29 Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.

    Acts 5:27-28 is interesting enough but if one's conscience leads one to be unable to fulfill one's duty as a government employee then one should seek employment elsewhere.
