Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton doesn’t care what the U.S. Supreme Court says. If a government employee doesn’t want to issue a marriage license, then they do not have to. “It’s their freedom of religion.”

“Texas must speak with one voice against this lawlessness, and act on multiple levels to further protect religious liberties for all Texans, but most immediately do anything we can to help our County Clerks and public officials who now are forced with defending their religious beliefs against the Court’s ruling,” Paxton said in the statement.
