Anti-gay deputy court clerks in St Mary’s County, Md., will stop performing marriages when same-sex marriage becomes legal in the state next week.
Pink News reported that Joan Williams, clerk of the St Mary’s Circuit Court, told the Washington Examiner that some of her employees are opposed to equal marriage for religious reasons.
