Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton issued a statement Sunday saying state workers can refuse to issue same-sex marriage licenses if doing so is contrary to his or her religious beliefs.

“(Judges and other state workers) may claim that the government cannot force them to conduct same-sex wedding ceremonies over their religious objections,” Paxton said in the statement.

    Are we to sit by and let this disgrace rule our thinking and actions? It is not in the best interest of the US to allow this crap to continue.

    Homosexuals are worthless persons who engage in lewd and disgraceful behavior. God condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to destruction by reducing them to ashes, having made them an example to those who would live ungodly thereafter. Woe to those who call evil good and good evil. The risen Jesus saves only those who call upon His name. Evidence of their salvation is the turning away from evil. The clock is ticking.
