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:
