This story made the rounds late last week and is continuing this week: There appears to be nothing in New Mexico state law and nothing in the New Mexico state constitution that prohibits marriage licenses from being issued to couples of the same gender. This all started in Dona Ana country, and WND chose to post a link to the article from Christian Post that they entitled, “County Clerk Issues ‘Gay’-Marriage Licenses on His Own.”
I love how they prejudice the story starting with the title itself: “on his own” implying that he has no authority or authorization to do so. Which he does. In fact, a judge ruled that another county clerk in New Mexico had to start issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples unless he could come up with a legal reason not to. He couldn’t so he started to issue them, too.
What does a good, solid, right-wing ultra-crazy religious Christian WND commenter do when confronted by this? Quote the Bible, of course, and lament the fall of America, and say that the county clerk should be fired and is “probably a lesbo and a wacko.”
