County Clerks Who Refuse To Marry People

I knew this wouldn’t take very long, considering how much the money-grubbing Alliance Defense Fund has been putting pressure on California county clerks to not marry gays and lesbians.  One clerk, Ann Barnett in Kern County, has refused to do this by canceling all marriages–gay or straight.  Her reason?  Well, she doesn’t come out and says she will break the law because she hates gays and lesbians or that her Jesus doesn’t like gays and lesbians to get married.  Nope, she is saying that her county does not have the resources to handle all the marriages.  I wonder if Ann Barnett has ever read the Bible, where God talks about hating liars.  I wonder the the money-grubbing Alliance Defense Fund has ever read the Bible where God talks about hating liars?  No, I don’t think they have.  There is an interesting article in the Bakersfield Californian about the lies that Ann Barnett is telling when she says she doesn’t have the staff or money to handle the flood. 

You know, I’m not too worried about people like Ann Barnett.  No doubt that when California said that a black person can marry a white person there were people like Ann Barnett who refused to marry those people.  Ann Barnett is in that crowd and you know what?  She just earned her place in history who will be remembered in that same category.  I will certainly be teaching about Ann Barnett and her decision very soon…

Here is a picture of Ann Barnett, in case you want to see what someone with her views looks like (below):

 

 

If I were governor of this state, here would be my letter to Ann Barnett:

 

Dear Ms Barnett,Barnett Ann Kern County

Thank you for the service you have provided to Kern County.  However, as you know, there are budget problems in our great state.  We are informing you that the State of California no longer has the budget to pay your salary as County Clerk of Kern County.  Your position ends on June 17, 2008.  The budget problems are affecting many people and we know that you will have great success in another job and we know that your love of California will ease your loss of your job.  Good luck with your future employment. 

Sincerely,

Governor Kevin Kaatz

    Dear Govenor Kaatz,
     
    In reference to your inquiry to the AG\’s office regarding one County Clerk here in known as Ms Ann Barnnet and her refusal to issue marry gays, lesbian, or hetrosexual couples based on her sole excuse that she does not have the resources to do so.  We at the AG\’s office have studied this matter to a great extent and have come to two distinct conclusions.
     
    Exhibit A:  Ms Barnnet too the job as County Clerk for Kern County knowing full well what the staffing situation and the resources of that office were prior her appointment/election and her refusal to do her job based on this excuse is deemed unaceptable by State and the laws she swore an oath to uphold.  She is duty bound to perform her job to the best of her abilities irregardless of the lack of rescources she may deem inadiquate.  It is not her position to decide what functions her office will or will not perform.  That decision lies soley with her elected superiors.  If this is her only reasoning for denying the citizens of Kern County their civil rights she should be immediately be relived of her duties and escorted with out pomp and circumstance to the front door of the County Clerks Office and immediately ejected through this portal.
     
    Exhibit B:  If however, Ms Barnnet is lying and refusing to do her job based on religious reasons, we at the AG\’s office would reccomend the following action:
                     
    Ms Barnnet should be read the following two scriptures:
     
    If she is lying :
    Proverbs 6:16-19 says, "These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren."
     
    If she is just refusing to execute her job because of religious reasons:
    Romans 13:1-2 tells us, “Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.”  After much legal discussion we have come to the opinion the Ms Barnnet is biblically mandated to follow the law whether she agrees with it personally or not.  And we  here we see that submitting to the governing authorities is biblically mandated.
     
    In conclusion Govenor Kaatz it is our considered legal opinion that Ms Barnnet be taken to the front door of the County Clerks Office and be ejected with out ceremony.  While we consider your letter to Ms Barnnet a very admirable thing to do you must realize that this type of disrespect for our laws and Ms Barnnets seemingly outright rebellion against the laws of this great stace cannot be dealt with such niceties.  It should be made known to Ms Barnnet and others that the attempted thwarting of our laws and the denial of citizens rights protected under those laws will be dealt with in a forthright ejection from office and will not be tolerated under any circumstances.
     
    By the way Governor, in case you haven\’t heard we have gotten rumors that the Alliance Defense Fund and some other groups of dubious designation are floating the idea of building re-education camps in Death Valley.  Should this idea gain any ground it will be up to you and the legislature to enforce the enviromental impact studies (get my drift wink wink) as construction in this area could be detrimental to the eco system and our enviromental laws.
     
    With all Due Respect

    Attorney General

    Dear Honorable J. Kickerass Outnow, Attorney General,
    I concur with your findings. However, I think Ann Barnett deserves to have a ceremony when she is ejected from the building.  I\’m sure that I can dig up a few dollars to put up some streamers and have a few signs (in rainbow colors, of course) created.  I may fly to Kern County to hold the ceremony myself.
    Yours truly,
    Gov. Kaatz
