Carly Fiorina FAIL: Attacks Kentucky Clerk For Refusing to Issue Same-Sex Marriage Licenses

920x920 (1)Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina offered her take on the growing controversy of the Kentucky county clerk who is refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses because it violates her religious conscience.

Fiorina spoke on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show Thursday saying that religious liberty is clearly under attack but that rights of religious conscience is less clear when an individual is an “arm of the government.”

“First, I think that we must protect religious liberties with great passion and be willing to expend a lot of political capital to do so now because it’s clear religious liberty is under assault in many, many ways,” Fiorina declared.

“Having said that, when you are a government employee, I think you take on a different role,” she added. “When you are a government employee as opposed to say, an employee of another kind of organization, then in essence, you are agreeing to act as an arm of the government” . . .

    Carly’s Conservative Credentials suddenly in the Crapper

  • wandamurline

    She should opt out now, cause she just lost most of her conservative base…the Supremes did not have the Constitutional right to even hear this case much less give us “servants” an order to obey….you do not have to obey a law that is unconstitutional and the same sex marriage ruling is unconstitutional….the Constitution provides that things of this nature be sent back to the individual states for them to decide, not five unelected activist judges who did not rule according to the constitution, but rule according to their “feelings”, with two hags, Ginsberg and Kagan, being allow to vote when they were out performing these “marriages” and violating their oath of office and they own code of ethics. Tyranny is what this is.

    Since when does sexual perversion trump religious freedom? I warned you for years that this would happen. Next you will not be allowed to hire any one else if a queer wants the job.

  • Joshua Bennett

    She works for a government! What the heck! Carly is correct. If a person joins the military, then refused to fight, all you here would say there should be a court martial. What’s the difference

  • Russ

    and this is the reason you aren’t going to the next debate. I wouldn’t vote for her if she were the only one running.

    My understanding of the clerk’s position is that since the Kentucky legislature has defined marriage to require one man and one woman, she has no legal authority to issue a license to two men. No federal or state court decision can give her that authority: only an act of the Kentucky legislature followed by the Kentucky governor’s signature can give her authority to issue a license to two men or two women. She has no duty to act if she has no authority to act, and she has no ability to act without that authority.
    The clerk is following the law, and the black-robed tyrants of the federal courts are not.

    Every candidate must be vetted we don’t care about parties. We need a real American in office with common sense and respect for individual freedom without govt interference period. Carly needs to be exposed. She needs to stay out of marriage. The govt has no business in healthcare, education, welfare or marriage.

    What we are not hearing from any candidate is that the federal govt has over reached all authority and common sense and are illegally involved in all areas of our personal liberty. God gives us freedom, not the govt. This nation was founded upon liberty, not federal regulations period. The federal govt as it stands today is illegal, nothing but a foreign organized crime syndicate. This leadership and congress are liable for their illegal activities not we the people including the illegal funding of the UN, foreign radical nation building and illegal borrowing of funds from communist nations. This is the most vile corrupt leadership in this nation’s history.

    I suggest we not only vote but demand any one running for office promise to uphold this nation’s founding principles and constitution and promote limited federal govt. We need to elect only a leader who will abolish all these illegal agencies and cut the federal govt by 80%. It is time to defund Washington DC and this illegal unconstitutional radical foreign regime now operating in Washington DC. The federal govt job is only national security and protecting our nation’s sovereignty. And it is the military’s job to protect our nation not DHS. The rest of the powers belong to the states and subject to the will of we the people period. It is time to abolish and defund DC. It is over!

    Carly is finished because conservatives will not support someone who thinks as she does when it comes to religious freedom. You failed in your bid to be elected in California and you will now fail in your bid to become president. Go home and enjoy your riches. Either that or join the Democrat Party.
