Town Clerk Quits, Says Bible Prohibits Gay Marriage

From The Christian Post:

New York town clerk Laura Fotusky has resigned from her position, saying that she cannot sign a document supporting same-sex marriage due to personal religious convictions.

Fotusky has stated that she will step down on July 21, which is three days prior to when the first gay marriage licenses will be distributed in New York State.

In her resignation letter, which was distributed to the media by a conservative Christian non-profit group called the New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms, Fotusky expresses her discomfort in indulging in a practice that she feels the Bible vehemently objects.

Fotusky writes, “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.”
