Gay marriage ruling

But not what you think. While the majority of the SCOTUS was playing checkers, this lowly TN state judge is playing chess.

I think they left out the part where Atherton took his ball back and ran home crying.

Yep, so good elected officials aren't doing their jobs they were elected for due to personal beliefs and then throwing a hissy fit about it. I'd like to offer my personal services and give the guys in Tennessee a hand.

You clearly didn't read the article. It ruling was not about his religious beliefs.

Not to mention the hypocrisy, of beating up on one register, when elected officials throughout the country refuse to enforce federal law, when it suits the Obama narrative. This democrat, which the media conveniently leaves out of the reporting, has strongly held religious believes, and is being jailed because of them. Others, like Lois Lerner, get a pass from any DOJ investigation, sit at home collecting more taxpayer largesse.
Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen prove that they are insured, but doesn't require every person to prove they are a citizen. Many who can't prove they are citizens will receive free insurance from those that are citizens.

More referencing the KY clerk that did base not giving out licenses on her beliefs which spawned this.

I find it appalling when I look at the lack of actual reporting done on the core issue at stack in the decisions. Almost all the reporting is about the media attention and the outcry and what will and might happen, etc. Very few "journalists" have actually bothered to delve into the legal issues and provide good honest reporting.

From what I've read it's not too much for the State to give her a religious accommodation on this. She's not objecting to handing out gay marriage certificates, she's objecting to the wording on them which says "Authorized to be married by Kim Davis" or whatever the official verbiage is. She'd like the wording to be more generic "authorized by the State of Kentucky" or "by the county clerks office" or whatever. It's not unreasonable IMHO and should be accommodated.

The clerk has nothing to do with the original post in this thread. The TN judge's ruling is a response to the SCOTUS' dictate.

So you're saying guilt by association?

Some things once seen can't be unseen.
