And because there is NO Stay from the 10th and no way of KNOWING when and if one will be forth coming, these County Clerks are in contempt of a Court order and should face the consequences of their actions!!!

Agreed. I am proud of them for not even blinking, but instead turning right around and slapping the county with a lawsuit. This is goddamn ridiculous (of the county); they're being really, really, really babyish about it.

Let's remember what the clerk who refused to issue licences said. Even he knew he was probably going to be wrong.

FTA: "Utah attorney generalís office spokesman Ryan Bruckman says counties could be held in contempt of federal court if they donít issue licenses. He also says the office hasnít given any definitive legal guidance to clerks.

At the same time, the attorney generalís office wants a higher court to halt the judgeís ruling and stop gay marriage while they appeal."

With all this toe tapping by the Republican appointed A.G I gotta ask if this would this be a good time to call in the legal genius of Larry Craig to consult with the AG's office?

My Topix page shows me a pic of a male couple, both with better beards than mine.

I know the temptation to punish these county clerks is great, but I hope we can show them some mercy, and if for no better reason (and I can think of many) but so that history shows that we did so.

Well, I believe that they should face some sort of punishment just because they employed the "STUPID" attitude..........they know what their job is and they are just simply refusing it and they need to know that is NOT acceptable.

Merry Christmas to you and yours:-)

Of course it is wrong to let the majority marry and deny the same right to the minority. But this is what happens when people reject our Republic and favor a Democracy.

Did you ever find out what the difference is between a Republic and a Democracy?

The authoritarians who believe in Democracy amongst us really need to consider your wise words very carefully. Gays will be remembered for how they respond to all of this and personally I hope that gays do not lower themselves to the level of these government employees. Gays are better than that. I hope gays prove that they are better than that.

Don't give the pew warmers any reason to try harder.

If anything you are consistent with your "punish those who hurt me" attitude. How dare someone be wrong about something. How would you feel about a year in prison for each of the clerks? Maybe a $10,000 fine too?

You claim I do not know anything about you NorCal, but you tell me all about you every time you post.

Just for the record. Gays would not be in charge of handing out punishment. That's up to the court. We cannot be blamed for anything that happens to the clerks. It is on their own head, and in the judge's purview.

Actually if I DIDN'T do my job......my employer would write me up, possibly suspend me or fire me depending on if this was a habitual issue........and who said ANYTHING about jail or a fine.......I merely mentioned that they should face some sort of consequences for NOT doing their job!!!

And you still DON'T know ANYTHING about me EXCEPT what you have decided in your own stupid thought process!!!

Slap us in our faces again and again and yet again. When the eff do you think we should be allowed to stand up for our rights, after we're all dead? Please Sir, may we please have a slice of equal rights Sir, begging for fair treatment till the end of time?

I call Bull Shit! And a Marry Christmas to all.
