I am so sick of this. If you can't do your job, and uphold your oath, by all means vacate your office--but not by just closing shop and leaving the building. You're free to practise your faith, but apparently can't do your job, so resign already. You're on the wrong side of history, and you're making a spectacle of your office in a state where taxpayers are paying several million dollars for fighting the losing battle against same-sex marriage.

Clerk Who Refuses To Issue Marriage Licenses Reopens Office
A Kentucky county clerk temporarily closed her office Thursday, hours after denying a marriage license to a same-sex couple. Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis has refused to issue marriage licenses to gay couples in the two months since the U.S. Supreme Court legalized gay marriage across the country.

A note taped to the doors of Davis' office said: "sorry our office is closed for computer upgrades. ETA 1 hour."

Davis and an entourage of deputy clerks walked out of the office and drove away. She declined to comment.
