A group of same-sex-marriage opponents is also expected to arrive this morning to deliver a petition urging the recorder's office not to issue the licenses. Polk County sheriff's deputies are on hand to maintain the peace.[...]
Emmet County Recorder Sue Snyder said no marriage licenses had been issued this morning, as of about 8:15 a.m. There was one protester of the marriage licenses to same-sex couples, a friend of Snyder's, who brought in a petition for Snyder to have, Snyder said.
"They're asking that we refuse to issue these licenses," Snyder said. "My response is that I'm governed by the state of Iowa to follow the laws and serve the people and that's what I will do. We just agreed that it would not cause any friction between our friendship, then we left it at that."
These people always thought democracy was a hindrance to enacting their agenda, which is why their whining about judges interpreting the law (regarding gay rights, abortion, property rights, or anything else they disagree with) has always been suspect.
