No Religious Exception for Mississippi Clerks

You will endorse the homosexual agenda — or else.

According to U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves, Mississippi clerks cannot refuse to issue same-sex marriage licenses based on religious objections. In response to last year’s Supreme Court decision redefining marriage, the state’s legislature had passed the Protecting Freedom of Conscience from Government Discrimination Act, which granted such protections for religious liberty.

Reeves, a Barack Obama appointee, was having none of it. “Mississippi’s elected officials may disagree with [the Supreme Court’s ruling in] Obergefell, of course, and may express that disagreement as they see fit — by advocating for a constitutional amendment to overturn the decision, for example,” Reeves wrote. “But the marriage license issue will not be adjudicated anew after each legislative session.”

We warned of such consequences of the Supreme Court’s trampling of Rule of Law. Kentucky clerk Kim Davis was the most famous case, but county clerks across the country are being forced to violate their consciences and their religious beliefs in the name of “tolerance.” And it’s all because five black-robed despots discovered a “right” to redefine the building block of society. Simple recusal isn’t good enough for the Rainbow Mafia, either. You will endorse their agenda — or else.
