Meet Molly Criner, The New Kim Davis With An Axe To Grind

Molly Criner compares her continued defiance against same-sex marriage to battling the forces of Nazi Germany.

The Irion County, Texas Clerk still won’t issue same-sex marriage licenses following the Supreme Court’s Obergefell v. Hodges ruling.

She says her decision is akin to clerks in Nazi Germany who were told to collect information on Jews but didn’t. Just to be clear, in this analogy the “Nazis” are the ones allowing same-sex couples to get married.

Solid comparison.

In July, just after the ruling came down, she considered resigning, but the admitted constitutional novice decided that the court had overstepped its bounds. After praying extensively, becoming ill and not sleeping for four days, she knew what she needed to do — be a huge, bothersome stick in the mud.

On a related note, we really don’t recommend making big life decisions after four days of no sleep. It’s generally a terrible idea.

“One of the first things said was that I don’t have to do it, but my deputies can, and I can fulfill my Christian conscience that way, but for me that wasn’t an option when I prayed about it,” Criner said. “I would be delegating my authority — that’s just like me doing it.”

So why is Kim Davis a cursed household name and we’re just now hearing about good golly miss Molly?

Well, no same-sex couple in her county of about 1,500 people has requested a license.

Here’s where her county sits in the state — we can’t say we’re entirely shocked gays aren’t rushing to the marriage office:

But make no mistake, Molly is ready to be the martyr that nobody wants her to be.

“I mean no disrespect to the same-sex couples who wish the benefits of marriage for their relations — no animosity toward them. I just have to look at what God said, and I have to look at the way our Constitution was based on what God said,” Criner told The Christian Reporter News. “I hope everybody really likes me when it’s over, and I hope I still have a home, and I hope I’m not in jail, but I really can’t think about any of that. I just leave it in the hands of God.”
