A better answer is suggested at http://dailysignal.com/2015/09/01/kentucky-clerk-not-issuing-gay-marriage-licenses-causes-uproar-north-carolina-shows-better-way/
The author points out that “Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 requires the government to accommodate conscientious objectors as best it can. Title VII applies to all employers, including the government, and requires that employers grant reasonable religious accommodations to employees, provided those accommodations don’t create an undue hardship for the employer.”
Rather than ‘shut down’ the agency, as Ms. Davis has done, the author suggests she, and any other magistrates or clerks, simply “recuse themselves from the process”, creating a ‘win-win’ situation.

Meanwhile, at a press conference covering the murder of Harris County Deputy Goforth, Sheriff Hickman said “We’ve heard Black Lives Matter, All Lives Matter. Well, cops’ lives matter, too.”
In response, Deray McKesson, a leader in the Black Lives Matter movement, told the Houston Chronicle: “It is unfortunate that Sheriff Hickman has chosen to politicize this tragedy and to attribute the officer’s death to a movement that seeks to end violence.”
“Politicize”? A statement of facts: All lives matter!
Your movement is the meaning of violence.
And what the hell do you think you are doing, using something that don't happen a lot and when it does it is mostly the thugs fault and there is your organization is politicizing for your leaderships own greedy purpose.
You people are killing each other way more in a month then the cops would in 20 years. How come you are not marching for that type killing? Just shows how freaking dumb you are to be protesting in the wrong place.

The “complete Codex can be seen online” —- WHERE? It would have been helpful to post a URL….
Sorry, but that's outside the pay grade of Blaze reporters.

Mr. Sorrells, you are right: “this was not necessarily an attack on the American flag”. It is an attack on Free Speech, guaranteed by our Bill of Rights!

Outstanding response, Senator Cruz!

You are mistaken. Mr. Cruz was born in Canada of a mother who was an American citizen. By law, he is therefore a “natural born Citizen”. By virtue of his birth he had dual citizenship, but gave up his Canadian citizenship. Lose the phony source.

Mr. Cruz seems to have a keen understanding of what is involved in this wretched deal. By the way, just what is a “Libertarian Socialist”? A totalitarian with a secret yearning for individual liberty? Or a rugged individualist who wants to be a slave?

“Trump is a “useful tool” for the GOP”? Why, then, are the GOP elites trying to get him out of the race? Like him or hate him, he has forced politicians to start addressing the issues important to the people, not their donors. Whether or not he ends up on the ballot, he has done us all a great service.

There is nothing “questionable” about his birth. He was born in Canada to a mother who was an American citizen. By law, that makes him a “natural born Citizen” as required byArticle II, Section 1 of our Constitution.
Exactly correct. This was the same question people had of McCain during his candidacy. McCain was born in Central America, but to US Citizens. Because of this, he is considered a natural born citizen. And not that I have EVER wanted to defend our current POS POTUS, but his citizenship was never really in question due to the fact that is mother was a US Citizen. So no matter where he was born, be it Hawaii or Nigeria, he is a US Citizen.
Yes, I had a problem with Cruz and his nationality also until I read the Naturalization Act of 1952 which spells out all the requirements making a person a United States citizen if they are born abroad. Ted Cruz meets all of the requirements. The U.S. Constitution says that the person must be a natural born citizen or a citizen of the United States to be president (this is different from naturalized, which are people not born in the U.S. or not born to American parents).

An inconvenient truth: Any money the Koch brothers donate to GOP candidates pales in comparison to the donations of Messrs. Soros and Buffett to the democratic Party.
Thank you, Taco Bell, Mr. Graves and the local store Manager for quick action.

Lighten up! You go to the beach, you’ll probably get splashed! And yes, we are priveleged to enjoy free speech in America. But with privileges come responsibilities. And as adults we know some words are best not said. Most of us learn that as children. Some- like this woman- appear yet to learn.

I must have missed something. When did University campus police get the authority to make traffic stops?
In that area the campus cops can patrol off campus. Maybe it's time to take a look at that rule.
being from Cincy i can comment that the day after the shooting they no longer patrolled off campus. but it should be mentioned campus police do have full police powers and they recently began patrolling off campus in a bad neighborhood next to campus. there is talk of incorporating campus police into CPD and making them district 6 (we currently have 5 districts)
don't know if this helps but it is what I know

Boehner is “not doing a very good job”? How about not doing anything he promised the American people he would do.
I am ready for a change. Almost anyone would be better.
You underestimate the leadership qualities of our Representatives. Mr. Meadows certainly has the guts; how about Gowdy? Labrador? Stutzman? Run down the list. Boehner is not- in spite of what he may think- God.

Sadly, our country and our Constitution would be better off today if Mr. Reid and Ms. Pelosi were in control of Congress.
One has to ask, “When Republicans give us Democrat policy, why do we need Republicans?”
