Fire them and replace them with kiosks. McDonalds is doing it since it's cheaper. Why keep overpaying lazy, rebellious government workers that supposed to act on the law and ONLY the law, not their personal beliefs?

IIRC, it's an elected position which is why they haven't been fired.

In Kentucky clerks are elected positions, so removing them is a bit harder than just firing them...

Except in cities of the first class, any elected officer, in case of misconduct, incapacity, or willful neglect in the performance of the duties of his office, may be removed from office by a unanimous vote of the members of the legislative body exclusive of any member to be removed, who shall not vote in the deliberation of his removal. No elected officer shall be removed without having been given the right to a full public hearing. The officer, if removed, shall have the right to appeal to the Circuit Court of the county and the appeal shall be on the record. No officer so removed shall be eligible to fill the office vacated before the expiration of the term to which originally elected.

So yea sucks to get rid of them.

no, burn them at the stake. Nothing like an old fashioned witch burning to extinguish mythical beliefs.

Really why is this even allowed? Not only are they not doing the job for which they were hired, aren't they also breaking the law?

Why are "sanctuary cities" allowed where some cities decide to ignore federal immigration laws?

I don't know.

They exist because local governments aren't required to enforce federal laws. Same reason why Washington and Colorado have marijuana stores.

This is completely different, these clerks are unconstitutionally denying rights to same-sex couples.

Probably because the current administration is unenthusiastic about federal immigration laws, and very enthusiastic about a recent judicial ruling on marriage laws.

It's not allowed, hence the court order. A contempt charge will follow, and then police at her house.

Interstate commerce doesn't require visiting the distillery in person. I can drink Puerto Rican rum just fine without flying to the Caribbean.

The fact you'd have issues marrying another man there is a reason not to visit the state?

Do you typically plan your marriages while on business trips?

Am from Kentucky. Don't lump us all in with people like her, the majority of us have no problem with gay marriage, and most of the darned dirty old progress hating evil Christian conservatives don't really care either and are in fact pretty okay with it.

Do you guys just not vote, then, or what's up with that? Rand Paul aside your elected officials seem pretty not okay with it.

Most were upset for the first week or so after the decision. But the majority of Christian conservatives and the majority of Christians know that in the end it's a decision that gives people a right they should have. They didn't support the decision of course because it goes against what they hold as firm, solid, strong beliefs. Many of them of course cried what they thought was another example of the moral decay of the country. But the majority of Christians realized, even before the decision, it isn't their goal or their purpose to change or encourage peoples' sexuality. The best way I have heard it phrased (2 years ago) was, "I don't care if they're gay or straight. My goal is to help them, reach them, show them the word, and anything else is between them and God."

So the majority of your Christian conservatives, while not thrilled with the decision of course, realize its not in their place to decide how other people life. It's their place to help people in need, help people who come to them, reach out to their community to help those who are in need or who haven't heard the word, and be there for those that come to them for guidance.

Most of them are pretty okay with it in the sense that they don't support or wouldn't have voted for that decision, but they realize that people think differently than they do, and that's okay. The vocal opposition that we hear the most of against the decision are a vocal minority, and the people that say "It's unconstitutional!" were either getting riled up in the moment in those first days, or are doing it merely for the support of their political base.

Public servants who violate their oath of office are unfit for public service.

They should be barred from public service for life; personally liable to the people whose rights they violate; and forfeit all accrued government benefits.
