A Gilmer County, W.Va., deputy clerk who verbally abused a same-sex couple seeking a marriage license has no right to harass or attempt to evangelize the people she is obligated to serve, Americans United for Separation of Church and State says. In a letter sent today to Gilmer County commissioners and County Clerk Jean Butcher, Americans United explained that Deputy Clerk Debbie Allen violated the constitutional rights of a same-sex couple that recently obtained a marriage license from the Gilmer County Clerk’s office when she told them they would be judged by God.

“It is both cruel and unacceptable for a government employee to berate anyone he or she serves in an official capacity,” said the Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United. “Even though Ms. Allen did not refuse to issue a license in this instance, she still deprived an innocent couple of their rights when she treated them like second-class citizens.” Recently, Samantha Brookover and Amanda Abramovich sought a marriage license at the Gilmer County Courthouse. It has been reported that Allen, who processed their license, told the couple that she did not agree with their marriage and allegedly called their actions “an abomination” during a rant that lasted two to three minutes.

Sack her.
If she has trouble carrying out the job she is allocated to without passing personal comment she should not be doing the job in the first place.

And you are entitled to that opinion Stormee, as she is entitled to hers, but she is not entitled to belittle people when her job is to grant licences.

Remember the Muslim chemist assistant who refused to sell condoms? and the Muslim teacher who refused to take her full face veil off when teaching primary schoolkids? They were not suitable for the jobs they had chosen, and I bet you agreed that they should be sacked.

It's the same sort of thing really.
