Look At Who Is About To Become The Most Famous Texas County Clerk In History


She just issued this statement on the Hood County's website.

Girl, you have no idea of the media storm that is headed your way. She'll be busy because there is "no hiding":


And speaking of marriage, her husband ran for office. He has personal convictions as well:

Not to Katie Lang and people everywhere:

Apostrophes do not make words plural. It's same sex marriage licenses, not "marriage license's."

It's like she's going out of her way to look stupid.

I'd like to see more Southerners assert themselves this way.

Hell, have Obama bring in the National Guard to enforce the Supreme Court's order.

If enough Southerners got mad and grew a pair then maybe the Feds would think twice before shoving THEIR values down our throats.

I am largely apathetic towards gay marriage. I don't care one way or the other, but what a dumba$$. I bet she doesn't even care if hetero couples have been divorced or had sex the night before they came in for a license. Or if the hetero guy she just issued a license to has a porn problem. I am over it...all of it. Both sides just stfu already.

What about my first amendment right to prevent this Sarah Palin wannabe from making laws (up as she goes) respecting an establishment of religion (hers). (First amendment) What would she think if a Muslim clerk denied issuance of marriage licenses to non-Muslims?

All you gay loving people are HATING her for her opinion.
All you gay people should be ashamed of yourselves for not allowing this person to defend her right to follow the 1st Amendment.

Haters. All you gays are militant haters!

Some states where it is written 'may' issue a marriage license have completely stopped issuing marriage licenses to any couples.

I hope that happens in Texas.
Just shut them all down.
Get rid of marriage licenses altogether.

Katie Lang needs to be fired for refusing to carry out the Oath of Office, to which she agreed when she took the County Clerk job. Nowhere does it stipulate, that as County Clerk, she has the right to impose her personal religious beliefs when executing the authority of as Hood County Clerk. Nowhere in the Oath of Office, to which she SWORE TO GOD, to uphold does it say she has the right to determine what she believes to be a "law."

"IN THE NAME AND BY THE AUTHORITY OF THE STATE OF TEXAS,
I, Katie Lang , do solemnly swear (or affirm), that I will faithfully execute the duties of the office of Hood County Clerk of the State of Texas, and will to the best of my ability preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States and of this State, so help me God."

I cannot see how homosexuality is considered normal. The human rectum is to receive waste from the descending colon and store the feces until full and the urge to defecate arrives. Penetrating it with the male sex organ is gross and unsanitary. If Darwin was here I wonder what he would say.

I'm always amazed that you think people who take a public stand on a controversial topic would rethink their public opposition if they had considered the derision they would receive. Would it shock you that she may know full well what's coming her way? It's called courage not stupidity.

She is following the law of the state of Texas. And, am I seeing "God" mentioned in there. LOL

Government officials, like county clerks, should administer the law. If one is prevented from administering the law for any reason, including compromising one's reigious beliefs, that person should resign the government position.

With that said:

This whole thing is not about equal legal standing under the law for lgbt couples. One will not only accept the lgbt version of reality, their opinions, their belief system, or pay the price. Read the posts of "teapot' if you want evidence. On another thread, "teapot' was calling for fines and jail time for individuals who say bad or mean things about others. Keep in mind that he is the one calling others nazis, racists, teabaggers, inbred conservative christians, etc... One only can assume that "teapot" or like minded individuals will decide how bad and mean will be decided.

Mzchief: The last words of your post "help me God" prevents her from issuing a marriage licence to a homosexual. According to God she should stone them instead of him helping her to issue the license. I guess the courts will now rule that phrase unconstitutional.

12:15 PM,

According to "God" or according to man, who actually wrote the bible? Who is to say that everything written in the bible was just man of biblical times writing down what he, in his own opinion, believed to be right? And if you really believe that "God" spoke to these individuals, then why hasn't "God" spoken to anyone else in centuries?

Think about this, individuals like David Koresh believed to have been speaking to "God", which lead to what happened. Everyone thought this guy was insane. What makes us believe that whoever wrote the bible wasn't also as insane as Koresh? The difference between them and Koresh is that in biblical times, man was dumber than a rock; whereas most of humanity now is educated and some has common sense.

If you don't support gay marriage, then don't marry someone of the same sex. And if you really are as "christian" as you claim to be, who do you think you are to judge fellow man? It is not your job to place judgement on man, especially knowing deep down that you, yourself, has sinned and are a hypocrite. As a significant amount of "christians" are.

Mind your business! It's really that easy. And if you truly believe that once you die, you will be judged, let it be then that "sinners" pay for their "sins".

She is hired by the government. Regardless of personal conviction, the rule of law is what each employee must abide by.

The attorney general set her up for this.

Did anyone really think Texas county clerks in republican counties would jump to issue same sex marriage license. She is elected by republicans who are conservative. She doesn't have to show up at the county clerk's office for weeks. She is elected and has lawyers waiting to take on her case. After 2000 years of marriage being between a man and a woman, it will take time and lawsuits before the law is in force in every county.

There should be a civil suit filed against her and one against the county, her church (if involved) should have their tax exempt status revoked and then fired. I agree with MzChief

What about that shopworn Republican campaign rhetoric that "[fill in the blank] is a strict constructionist of the Constitution who believes in the Rule of Law and who will not legislate from the bench [or county clerk's desk, or AG's office, etc., etc.]."

Seems to me like they're legislating.

Boys & girls, Mzchief is on the mark. The elected Office of County Clerk has no religion. Ms. Lang may feel that way personally & that's fine. But the rub is no one would be coming to her for a marriage license if she didn't hold that elected office. It doesn't really matter what her opinion, my opinion, or your opinion is. The office has no opinion. The person holding that elected office is a paper shuffler. Simple as that. If you are a snake handler by religious beliefs, go with God. But leave your box of copperheads at home when you come to work and just do your job.

I'm just wondering.....why did we outlaw a man having multiple wives? It was a common social norm in the old testament and many current countries continue this method of marriage.
I'm just wondering.....what matter is it for a legal document who the hell I marry, what interest is it to the state of Texas or US government? It's two separate things a legal paper from the gov. and one of religious ceremony...they are not mutually exclusive.
I'm just wondering...If I ain't a christian and I don't want to have kids, can I still get married license?
I'm just wondering...who issues divorce papers....is that against this chicks religious beliefs?

A Texas public school principal once told me that he did not believe that "in their common social, economic and political lives, men and women are equal." I told him that as a public school administrator that he had to believe that . He reiterated that he didn't. He was later fired for stealing money and screwing the staff. Good upstanding man of God that one there. If you are on the State's payroll, you do the State's bidding or kiss your retirement goodbye.

The difference in the school superintendent is he is an employee, the county clerk is an elected official. Obama swore to uphold the constitution and the law, however, we know he makes laws and ignores the constitution. Why all the outrage toward the county clerk who hasn't denied a same sex marriage license? Texas attorney general has her covered and Lawyers want the legal challenge. Guys will have to wait in hood county or go somewhere else.

Kudos to her for demonstrating courage and for not compromising her values. A true Christian must always place God's laws above the laws of men when they conflict regardless of the potential cost or persecution. Homosexuality and the abhorrent acts associated with it violate the laws of God in every way possible. Too bad more of our leaders and elected officials don't have the backbone this woman has.....

Katy Anders said...

I am certain that the debate on both sides will be calm and rational and will not include any threats against her...

Incidentally, my office received calls from clients in Matagorda County today, who had been told that they could not marry there, either. (Matagorda is south of Galveston)

I called the clerk and asked if the problem was that they were waiting for more guidance from the AG or were waiting for forms. I was told, "Neither. We're just not doing those."

Justice Kennedy, a former catholic, Gnostic theology that pleasure or happiness is the sole purpose in life was the liberal belief behind making same sex marriage the law of the land. Gnostic ism is one of the most dangerous heresies of the first two centuries of the church. The natural order culture has been replaced by a gnosis theology embraced by elites who are not in reality. The madness that led to the last two supreme court decisions, the LGBT movement, androgyny and the progressive left move toward a new world order will have serious repercussions for our religious freedoms. Rome did not survive and our country will no yet survive unless we change back to the natural order.

All you idiot teabaggers crying Obama is rewriting/ignoring the constitution understand the SCOTUS determines Constitutionality, not you, not Rush Limbaugh, not FOX News, right? If anything he did/does thru executive order is unconstitutional, it will be struck down. You also understand he isn't the first to use executive orders. Your heroes Reagan and Bush were pretty damn familiar with them and you didn't complain.

You just have the red ass because you're not getting your way.

Can a doctor refuse to perform an abortion;can a soldier refuse to follow orders to kill innocent non combat women and children; can a pastor refuse the sacrament of holy matrimony to two men who cannot consummate their vows? Can a Christian baker or photographer or wedding planner refuse to participate in a same sex marriage celebration? If the government punishes them for standing up for their beliefs, we are no longer a free society.

Cops are free to enforce the law or not. They often give warnings instead of tickets, on their own say so.
They can let a drunk go if they want. They are on the hook if something happens, but they can do it.

Nowhere in the constitution does it say the Supremes can create law/rights from the bench.
Granting gays the right to marry is in violation of natural, common, and state legislated law.
Powers not enumerated to the fedgov are retained by the states or people.
Regulating marraige isn't within the fedgov's purview.

Maybe it can fall under the commerce clause somehow:
1) Married gays have more disposable income than unmarried gays.
2) Having more disposable income, married gays are able to effect interstate commerce.
3) Fedgov can regulate gay marraige because gay marraige effects interstate commerce.
:)
The Supremes are making a power grab.
Checks and balances my ass!
A county clerk refusing to support the decision is small potatoes in the scheme of things, but an unconstitutional law isn't a law anyone has to obey.
And yes, we all get to decide what's unconstitutional, so long as you're willing to pay the price for your decision. It's called sovereignty. Comes with being a citizen.

#2 I have known a lot of true atheists. They honestly do not care what anyone else thinks. You my friend are desperately looking for proof that God does exist. Sadly for you, it is a matter of faith, and that proof does not exist, at this time. But one day, you will know for sure.
#3 She is truly not alone.
#4 Most Christians do care what happens to other sinners of all stripes, and wish to help them find the Lord.

If you wish for that help, which it appears you do, I will try to help you.

I get it. The constitution allows the court to rule on matters within their purview. Regulating marraige isn't on the list of fedgov's enumerated powers.
