Yesterday was the first day of legal gay marriage in North Carolina, which means you knew this was going to happen:
William Locklear and his partner showed up at the county courthouse Monday expecting to get married after 31 years together.
The couple didn’t get the chance.
A magistrate turned them away.
“He said, ‘I won’t be performing your marriage because of my religious beliefs,’” Locklear said.
The article never mentions the faith of the magistrate, but would anyone like to take a wild guess…?
