Maryland, USA: Some County Clerks Reassigned Over Objections to Same Sex MarriageSome county clerks in Maryland would rather take a ride on Matt Grubbs’ gay-free trolley than give same-sex couples marriage certificates. From the Washington Examiner:

When same-sex marriage becomes legal in Maryland next week, some employees in the St. Mary’s County Circuit Court will stop performing marriages, passing the duty on to other employees.

“There are some [deputy clerks] that have voiced some opposition to doing it — [they have] religious feelings about it … so it’s basically my idea that they won’t do any marriage at all,” said Joan Williams, clerk of the St. Mary’s County Circuit Court. “Some people are just very against same-sex marriages, and I have to respect their reasons and their decisions.”
