Justice Kennedy Respects Public Officers More Who Resign Over Marriage Equality Objections
“The rule of law is that, as a public official in performing your legal duties, you are bound to enforce the law.” —Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy said in his appearance at Harvard University last week.
He continued a few lines later…
“Great respect, it seems to me, has to be given to people who resign rather than do something they view as morally wrong, in order to make a point”
(The discussion about moral objections by government officials comes at the 51 minute time mark.)
What do you think about Justice Kennedy’s remarks? Are you listening, Kim Davis?
