You Can't Be Choosy

You can't pick and choose who you will service:

Several employees of the county clerk's office have been reassigned to other duties because they expressed "sincerely held religious objections" to gay marriage, county clerk Gregory Smith said Friday.

No employee is being allowed to perform marriage duties involving only heterosexual couples, Smith said. Instead, employees are being shifted to other duties that do not include issuing marriage licenses, officiating at civil weddings or acting as witnesses.
