It’s a Wonderment

I was watching the news tonight and with all this talk about gay marriage, an announcement was made that if one’s religious convictions were against gay marriage, then a marriage certificate did not have to be issued. Well, now. I looked at my husband and said, “how does that work?”

Whether we like it or not, gay marriage has been declared legal and, I don’t know, but it used to be when a law was passed, that was pretty much it. So, it should be. So, if one is a clerk in a place that doles out marriage licenses, it should not be up to the clerk as to who gets the marriage license.

Used to be, the people revolted against the government. Now, it seems, the government is revolting against itself and the people they are to serve. Some may say these are the last days. I wonder…..

  1. I would say it would eventually make it more difficult to even secure a job in this field if you are openly Christian, or opposed in any way. Might make some people think twice!

  2. I think what it means is the state has to issue the legal license, but a church can choose to ignore. In other words, you can be legally married, yet sinning in the eyes of the church.

    1. Well, here in Texas, the actual clerks where you get the marriage license can choose to issue or not. The clergy, of course , can choose whether to marry or not. But, my thing is this: if a law is passed, shouldn’t the people who work for the government have to issue the items regarding the new law? It’s all confusing! thanks for writing!

  3. I understand where you’re coming from Paula, but remember, if everyone had the same attitude, we never would have this thing called the United States of America. “I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.” -Thomas Jefferson
