Kim Davis Supporters: Deputy Clerks Who Processed Marriage Licenses Should Be Fired!

Kim Davis is out of jail. One of her deputies is on the record for saying that he plans to continue issuing marriage licenses to the taxpayers of that county and we know that a small handful of couples have had marriage license applications processed since Kim Davis went to jail last week.

Now, some of Kim Davis' supporters are urging her to fire any of her deputies who've issued marriage licenses, because of "religious liberty" or something like that:
Supporters of Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis, who refused to issue marriage licenses to gay couples due to her religious beliefs, said on Wednesday that any of her deputies who provide such documents without her permission should be fired...
Ante Pavkovic, one of the people who helped organize pro-Davis rallies outside the Grayson, Kentucky, detention center where Davis was jailed, lectured the deputy clerks not to violate their oaths of office, like Bunning and the U.S. Supreme Court justices who backed gay marriage did.
"Do not join them in this any further, and if you can't do that, then you should just quit," Pavkovic, 49, of North Carolina, said, standing in the clerk's office in Morehead, Kentucky.
He waved a sign in the faces of the deputy clerks that read, "Fire the cowardly clerks that are lawbreakers." He was asked to leave by a deputy sheriff.
Once again, I anticipate that Kim Davis will end up back in jail on contempt charges. Her lawyers have already indicated that she plans to stop the issuing of marriage licenses. Which violates the terms of her release. She is not willing to do her job. She is not willing to delegate responsibilities to her staff. She is not willing to quit so that somebody else can do the job of county clerk. But her deputy clerks should be fired for doing their jobs. Nice...
