NC Values Coalition Statement

for immediate release

4th Circuit agrees that every citizen, even government employees, has the right to exercise their religious beliefs about marriage.

--- 

"The NC Values Coalition applauds the 4th Circuit’s ruling upholding North Carolina’s magistrate recusal law, which simply recognizes that every citizen, even government employees, has the right to exercise their religious beliefs about marriage. The Court rightly held that taxpayers have not been harmed by the law, and that the law accommodates the rights of magistrates and registers of deeds to exercise conscientious objection to same-sex marriages by recusing themselves, while also insuring that same-sex couples have the ability to get married.”

- Tami Fitzgerald, NC Values Coalition Executive Director
