So Long, Farewell!



So long, farewell
Auf Wiedersehen, adieu
Adieu, adieu
To you and you and you

DECATUR COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – The employees of the Decatur County clerk’s office in west Tennessee have resigned from their positions.

Clerk Gwen Pope and employees Sharon Bell and Mickey Butler all said their resignations was due to the Supreme Court’s decision to allow same-sex marriages.

The decision reportedly clashes with the employees’ religious beliefs. Their last day will be July 14.
I don't have a problem with that. If you want to shoot yourself in the foot rather than doing your job (which amounts to “participating” in a “gay wedding” about as much as walking along the sidewalk outside a venue where one is being held), I think it is salutary that you save the taxpayers the expense of paying an unfaithful servant.

Comments:
I wonder if anyone ever resigned rather than participate in the marriage of a divorced person.
Matthew 19:9 "I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery.”

I'm pretty sure not ... but this isn't about consistency, it's about cultural dominance. They fought and lost the battle over no-fault divorce (not that they fought all that hard, given Evangelicals have among the highest divorce rates of any demographic) long ago. They had smashed through the culture, passing SSM bans across the country, a mere decade or two ago and now it has all evaporated. They are struggling to find some way to fight back or at least show they are still relevant. Think of them as the Kamikaze of the Religious Right.
