    her deputies so that they have no marriage duties (here the same clerk's office would handle gun permits and probate matters so there are totally different jobs to do) it seems like she managed to split the baby.  I don't like that she was willing to do it, but I also hate the idea of firing people.  And there is law that some reasonable accomodation be made for religious beliefs.   Whether any religion should hold such a belief is not for the government to decide but for people to decide by leaving that kind of church/religion.
