Anti-gay activist seeks CA clerks willing to put discrimination before duty

by Jeremy Hooper

201307081254-1 Back when Prop 8 was up for debate, Randy Thomasson compared clerks who might have to marry same-sex couples with Nazi officers who were forced to "gas the Jews." Now that marriage equality is the law of the land in his state, this longtime California activist is turning his attention back to state clerks, this time seeking a few who will turn themselves into fake "victims" for the anti-LGBT cause:

TO FIND A PRINCIPLED CLERK

On July 3, I spent the day driving through much of the Central Valley, knocking on doors of clerks and communicating the constitutional truth. But does any clerk care about what's right?

I need your help to sensitize them to respect the constitution and the voters. We need to find one or more county clerks who believe in the exclusivity of man-woman marriage as well as his oath to abide by the state constitution, and who is not overwhelmingly afraid of liberal forces.

Such a clerk, who is locally elected, is likely to be in the Central Valley and other parts of California that are strongly for man-woman marriage.

I love his admission that he "need[s] your help to sensitize them." We all have our own synonyms for "dupe."
