Some counties in Central Texas declined to issue same sex marriage licenses despite the Supreme Court ruling. One of them is Williamson County.
Sandra Kaso and her fiancé stopped by the Williamson County Courthouse to get their last minute paperwork in order
While they walked out with one...same sex-couples could not despite the Supreme Court's ruling on Friday
"If they are discriminating against gay couples and not hetero couples, what they are doing is breaking the law," said Williamson County Attorney Scott Magee
Williamson County officials declined an interview. A statement posted on the clerk's door says County Attorney Dee Hobbs is reviewing the justice's opinion before moving forward.
"State law is under federal law and they are required to do it whether they like it or not," Magee explained.
In addition to being an attorney, Magee has taught government and politics at a Texas college
"They're losing sight of the fact that this is not a theocracy this is a democracy. We don't do things according to biblical principal we do things according to the law," Magee explained.
"People are just afraid. They're afraid to change," said Dax Garvin, another attorney in Williamson County. "It's hurtful, it's shameful and I think it's another poor decision on Williamson County leadership."
He wishes he and his husband could have gotten married in their home state instead they eloped in Hawaii.
He thinks the county could face a lawsuit if they don't follow federal law
"I really want them to pull this out and not be on the wrong side of history," Garvin said.
And that couples here will soon be able to get marriage licenses as easily as Sandra and Thomas did.
"I hope they aren't taken to the right side of history kicking and screaming," Garvin said.
