A rural New York town clerk has resigned her post rather than grant marriage licenses to same-sex couples. [the aftermath of the same sex cohabitation being confused with the natural and sacred marriage.]
[I am sure she meant it with a big G.]
Fotusky, a 56-year-old twice-elected Republican in the town of about 2,700 people about 10 miles north of Binghamton, posted her resignation letter to the Web site of New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms, a group that describes itself as “dedicated to influencing legislation and legislators for the Lord Jesus Christ.” [So it was really not a small "g".]
Fotusky, whose resignation is effective July 21, three days before legal gay marriage takes effect in New York, said she has no plans after she leaves her office, which paid $24,205 last year. [She is sacrificing a lot for her beliefs.]
“I don’t know what’s going to happen next,” she said. “I just knew that I needed to obey God.”
Fotusky follows in the footsteps of Barbara MacEwen, the town clerk in Volney, N.Y., who said last month she was determined not to grant any gay marriage licenses. MacEwen ultimately relented and said she would arrange for deputy clerks to sign the documents.
Fotusky quoted the Bible in her resignation letter, writing, “The Bible clearly teaches that God created marriage between male and female as a divine gift that preserves families and cultures. “Since I love and follow Him, I cannot put my signature on something that is against God.”
God bless Laura! As St. Paul wrote in Romans "We know that in everything God works for good with those who love him, who are called according to his purpose."

Such laws force a person to obey a law which is immoral and unnatural. What would rights advocates have to say then that a person is forced to obey something against his will in order to give someone his perceived 'right and privilege'. Don't get me wrong. I am for the equal rights of ALL people, no matter their sexual orientation. But for you to tell me that homosexuals enjoy the same sexual and parental rights as those of the traditional and (whether you like it or not) natural family and a married couple, then hey, you'd be sure I would not be silenced about this.
THIS IS NON NEGOTIABLE!
HOMOSEXUAL COUPLES CO-HABITATING CAN NEVER EVER BE CALLED A MARRIED COUPLE NOR ADOPTING OR HAVING A CHILD THROUGH A SURROGATE WILL NEVER MAKE THAT COUPLE WITH A CHILD A FAMILY!
UN-NATURAL, IMMORAL, NON NEGOTIABLE!
And I am pretty sure there will be brave souls here in the country who would do the same if the RH Bill becomes a law.
