North Carolina Magistrates, either Marry Gay Couples or Get Fired!

Ha! If you are a magistrate and don't want to marry a gay couple, you can get fired!

AP reports
North Carolina magistrates have been directed to perform civil marriages for same-sex couples or face suspension or dismissal from their state jobs. A memo to state magistrates Wednesday said they would be violating their oaths of office if they refuse to marry gay or lesbian couples.
A magistrate named, Gary Littleton in Pasquotank County refused to marry a gay couple, and now he's out. Stop playing with the law, folks. It's not your say, just do your job and let marriage equality continue.
