Prof. Bix Quoted in Christian Science Monitor on Clerk Refusing to Give Marriage Licenses to Same-Sex Couples

Professor Brian Bix was quoted in two Christian Science Monitor articles about the Kentucky clerk who refused to give marriage licenses to same-sex couples, citing her strong religious beliefs. Bix argued that while sincere religious beliefs warrant great respect, they cannot be the grounds for government officials' refusing to do their jobs.
