Texas Clerk Refuses to Issue Same-Sex Marriage Licenses
Faith and Freedom with Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and BarbWire’s Matt Barber… An 11-minute weekday radio program discussing hot topics in the area of religious liberty, the sanctity of human life and the family.
A Texas clerk refused to issue licenses for same-sex “marriage,” and Liberty Counsel has come to the defense of this clerk.
Mat Staver: Matt, this is in Texas, it’s Irion County, and that particular location is the place for a clerk, by the name of Molly Criner, who has issued a statement regarding marriage and the fact that she says she will uphold the Constitution, and therefore must reject the ruling that is lawless.
This is what her statement says in part, “To keep my oath to protect the Constitution I must reject this ruling that I believe is lawless. I have to stand for the Constitution and the rule of law.”
Matt Barber: She is setting an example for millions, frankly, of other American citizens, for clerks, for judges, for attorneys, for teachers…on and on it goes. And what we’re talking about here is the rule of law.
She said, “The justices of the Supreme Court acted outside and against the authority granted to them by the very Constitution that we have sworn to uphold.”
So what she is saying here, Molly Criner, she’s saying I’m going to obey the Constitution and uphold my duty, sworn duty to the Constitution, and I am going to ignore this unconstitutional, lawless decision by these five unelected, unaccountable, justices of the U.S. Supreme Court.
