Bleeding Heartland: Brief memo to county recorders in Iowa

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

No one who applies for a marriage license needs your blessing.
According to Republican State Senator Merlin Bartz, at least one of
you (or perhaps several of you) may be ready to resign rather than
issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. We all can think of
marriages we disapprove of, but if your moral objections to marriage
equality render you unable to perform the duties of your job, by all
means resign. Filling a county government position with good benefits
is never a problem, especially in this economy. Rest assured, as much
as you dislike the idea of gays and lesbians getting married, people
like me dislike the idea of taxpayer dollars going to someone like
you.
