Shun-employment: NC state employee quits job to avoid happy gay couples

by Jeremy Hooper

Priorities, folks:

WENTWORTH — A Rockingham County magistrate submitted his resignation Thursday, saying he couldn’t marry same-sex couples because it violates his religious beliefs.
Magistrate John Kallam Jr. sent a letter to Chief District Court Judge Fred Wilkins and said he couldn’t fulfill his oath of office after same-sex marriage became legal in North Carolina. His resignation is effective Oct. 31.

It's unclear where he will go next. But I'd assume he'll look for jobs that involve casting stones.
