we have covered the emergence of the fundamental right of people to marry whomever they love, for some time here, now.
I must say that I think this Kentucky clerk has received extemely poor legal advice from Liberty Counsel. There is no plausible reading of the existing law that would allow an elected official to choose which laws she will obey, and which she will not. Here her choices are plain: issue marriage licenses to all (as she had previously sworn to so do), or resign her office. There is simply no fundamental right to "be an elected official" -- it is a privilege -- a privilege that remains contingent upon obeying the law of the land -- and discharging the lawful duties of office. Marriage equality is now clearly the law of the land.
I am genuinely sorry she is now in a federal jail-cell (likely believing, in error, that she is somehow being persecuted for her religious views) -- but it is largely the poor legal advice of Libery Counsel that has landed her there, in my opinion. Liberty ought to admit that no good faith extension of existing law would support the position they've backed her in taking.
Onward -- and I do trust now that love will prevail.
