LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Marion County Judge, Vance Day, is under investigation after a judicial oversight commission became aware he was refusing to perform weddings on the basis of personal belief. Day has declined to perform all weddings because he fears he will be forced to officiate at a same-sex ceremony. His staff has been referring same-sex partners to other judges.

Day was a former chairman of the state's Republican Party and was appointed to the bench in 2011.

Judges are important to the homosexual equivalency movement, which relies on secular support to legally affirm their civil-marriage status. Few churches are willing to participate in what is widely viewed as a perversion of marriage.

Despite the fact that other judges are available to perform such ceremonies, the homosexual lobby has targeted Day because he is a public official with moral convictions and he refuses to participate in their perversions. As a result, he has been slated for purge.

The developing issue is whether or not public officials can refuse to perform a legally prescribed duty on the basis of religious conviction. The answer appears to be no, a public official is required to perform all of their duties, regardless. This was the verdict in the case of Kim Davis, an elected county clerk who refused to participate in gay marriages by issuing licenses with her name on them.

In Ohio, the Supreme Court's Board of Professional Conduct also announced its ruling that judges in the state could not refuse to marry same-sex couples on any personal ground, including moral or religious.


It makes some sense to require a public official to perform their duties. A DMV official, for example, cannot refuse to issue a person a license on the basis of their membership in a protected class of people, regardless of their religious beliefs. And if religious beliefs trump all obligations, then it would create a nightmare scenario where everyone has to pass a religious test to simply engage in commerce. Imagine if a Muslim sect was given a fatwa to refuse to do business with all but fellow members. Now imagine if one of those members held public office, or if they were an employee of your business.

The way we reconcile these differences, because such religious convictions do exist, is people know up-front what they are signing up for when they accept a position. An ultra-conservative Muslim who accepts a public sector job knows he will be required to work with women, for example. A Quaker who joins the military knows he will be trained to fire a weapon. As a result, people with such beliefs avoid the jobs that would require them to participate in activities that are contrary to their religious beliefs.

In the present case however, many people have accepted these jobs, such as judges and clerks, long before homosexuals were granted the supposed right to marry people of the same sex. Now, people who have worked their entire life into a career as a judge or as an elected official, have to ponder a massive life change because homosexuals insist that they, in particular, participate in their perversion.

This is sadism, akin to Nero. According to legend, Nero often had Christians killed at his parties for spectacle. They could be burned alive as human torches to illuminate his gardens. What the homosexual lobby appears to be doing is something similar. They are actively seeking public officials who disagree with their perversion and they are insisting that they, in particular, burn for their ceremonies. Granted, nobody dies, but the suffering felt by these people who have faithfully served the public all their lives, is very real.

The impact of this persecution is going to be a massive purge of religious people in the public sector.

Allow that to sink in.

Religious people are being purged out of the public sector. What will happen to our nation once God is finally and completely purged from government? What will happen to our schools, to our courts, to our legislatures?

Some public officials, like Kim Davis, are practicing their own brand of civil disobedience, but few Americans support her or are willing to join her in jail. With so few people willing to stand with courageous, convicted people like Davis and Day, the end cannot be far off for the nation.
