If you are the mayor of a sanctuary city and you don’t enforce the immigration law: you’re not doing your job. No problem.
If you are a sheriff in Cali or the DC chief of police and do not issue gun permits: you’re not doing your job. No problem.
If you are the president of the United States and don’t adhere to Youcare or immigration laws: you’re not doing your job. No problem.
But if you’re a clerk in a no name town and refuse to issue marriage licenses: you’re not doing your job. EVERYBODY FREAK OUT!
I don’t have any issue with the clerk being unable to do her job….if she can’t, or if it makes her uncomfortable, or goes against her “Religious principle” or whatever…she can always quit/resign, etc.
But either do the job or get out, or go to jail.
