Some counties in Texas are refusing licenses to same-sex couples

AMARILLO, TX - Despite the Supreme Court's ruling on Friday some counties in Texas are still refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Some county clerks claim it violates their religious freedom, others say they're waiting on forms and computer updates.

We spoke with Dr. James Calvie today, a Professor of Political Science about the issue, "Let's put it in perspective, in 1967 in Loving Vs. Virginia the court ruled that states could not prohibit interracial marriages, now imagine a county clerk today saying because of his or her religious beliefs they would not issue the marriage license, that would be unheard of today, and this is exactly the same situation."

Randall and Potter County clerks tell us they expect to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples as early as this week.
