“[Texas] Attorney General Ken Paxton released a statement Sunday on the Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage ruling stating that county clerks, justices of the peace, judges and their employees may object to issuing same-sex marriage licences due to their religious beliefs.
“Paxton adds that while officials are allowed to choose not to issue same-sex marriage licenses, they may face litigation and/or a fine for doing so.”
Added Paxton: “But, numerous lawyers stand ready to assist clerks defending their religious beliefs, in many cases on a pro-bono basis, and I will do everything I can from this office to be a public voice for those standing in defense of their rights.”
No surprise here. No surprise at all. DOJ’s Lynch is going to be a very busy woman.
UPDATE: This is the natural result of something author Kurt Schlichter wrote back in April in Townhall: “…we have two different sets of laws, one for the little people and one for liberals like Lois Lerner, Al Sharpton and Hillary Clinton, who can blatantly commit federal crimes and walk away scot free and smirking.”
