Anti-gay court clerks to stop performing all marriages in Maryland

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.

As a result to respect their beliefs Williams has decided that those deputy clerks who are against the new law won’t perform any marriages at all.

All counties in Maryland are legally required to start performing same-sex marriages Jan. 2 2013.
