Teabaggin Tennessee State Rep Tells County Clerks: Do not give marriage licenses to the gays!”

Rick Womick

Tennessee State Rep. Rick Womick, R-Rockvale has gone rouge. 

The anti-gay politician has sent a letter to all 95 county clerks in Tennessee urging them to refuse to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples and also claiming that the governor and attorney general are “bullying” county clerks into issue the licenses.

Womick is adamant the high court overstepped its legal bound.

Only Congress and state legislators have that power to create law. We will not be controlled by an oligarchy of five individuals in black robes,” Womick said. “If you really have a problem with that, you five justices, then come down to Tennessee and try to enforce your ruling.”

Womick is working with fellow crazed tea bagger bigot U.S. Rep. Scott DesJarlais to impeach those five Supreme Court Justiced and also co-sponsored TN HBHRJ0071, which “Proposes an amendment to the Constitution of Tennessee recognizing that our liberties do not come from governments, but from Almighty God, our Creator and Savior.” He also co-sponsored TN HB0615, which would have deemed The Holy Bible as the official state book of Tennessee

Womick sent his letter out by mail last Wednesday. So far, he has not received a response from any clerks indicating they would ignore the Supreme Court’s ruling.
