In those terms, maybe, maybe not. A Brief Note on the "Substantial Burden" Requirement
Nevertheless, the potential for committing a misdemeanor is a substantial burden.
Sec. 2.012. VIOLATION BY COUNTY CLERK; PENALTY. A county clerk or deputy county clerk who violates or fails to comply with this subchapter commits an offense. An offense under this section is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of not less than $200 and not more than $500.

To the extent that a corporation or a piece of paper has religion to protest the discrimination of. Nut jobs had successfully created a holier than thou corporate complex that whines and cries and sues. How f'ing original.

Creeps who don't want to participate in performing marriage license processing should recuse themselves before the start of the work day to avoid shedding gay tears as they get to tell otherwise happy couples to f off. How much data such as 'positions held' is public record?

First not in Spanish, now not in English! where will Americans go to see very dumb but fine examples of the Plastic Surgeons Art prancing around in bathing suits and talking about how god guided them to show their body to someday end world hunger and protect one man one woman marriage.

Shhh!! You'll summon Putin! He loves looking masculine standing next to Republicans!

Speaking of - Lindsey is gone with a wave of his flag-flop double-teamed with colorblindness:

Mother Jones:While other GOP politicians, including Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, are criticizing the flag's enduring presence, Sen. Lindsey Graham, who hails from South Carolina and is now running for president, has come to the rebel flag's defense. According to Graham, the Confederate flag is an integral "part of who we are."

This isn't exactly surprising, considering Graham appeared on "The View" yesterday to promote his new e-book and brushed aside the obvious racial overtones of the attacks, suggesting that suspected shooter Dylann Roof was seeking to massacre Christians. "This guy's just whacked out," he said. "It's 2015 -- there are people who are looking for Christians to kill them."

The Frothy One hath removed hisself:

Salon:President Santorum, he said, would "promote marriage" in "the popular culture and the business community, and have programs that would support the idea of marriage and togetherness in order to raise children. That is the most important thing we can do as a society to lift up marriage as an institution that's important to the survival of our country."

Suckabee swallows mirror martyr:

The Hill:On ABC's "This Week" on Sunday, host George Stephanopoulos asked Huckabee if he would advocate for civil disobedience following Friday's Supreme Court ruling that made same-sex marriage legal nationwide.

"I don't think a lot of pastors and Christian schools are going to have a choice. They either are going to follow God, their conscience and what they truly believe is what the scripture teaches them, or they will follow civil law," Huckabee said.

While the Donald plays the loudest fool, hypnotized people love his act. They might not resist even voting for him.

Nice reading a story about a good cop. I suspect most of them are doing the best they can.

Truth flag. I like most that I've met. It's the few who take advantage of their brethren code that erode honor and authority.

"Actually this could mend police image."
This was a nice gesture but giving away $10 here and there won't really fix anything. Nor should it.
Because the harm done by bad cops affects peoples' lives permanently in many cases and can't be erased by $10 here and there.
What police need to do in order to fix their reputation is to simply do the job fairly and not to sanction the crimes of their fellow officers by looking the other way. The #1 behavior that most cops engage in that destroys the reputation of police in general is looking the other way as their fellow officers illegally abuse people.
Cops shouldn't have to spend their money to make people respect them. All they need to do is treat criminals who wear badges the way they would treat any other criminal.

But it would be nice if police could reward good deeds. It might change their approach, let alone their outlook to interactions. Happier, more satisfaction and awesome heart-melting interactions. Heroes. If that responsibility is outside their duty roster maybe just randomly appoint members of the community as a bloc of designators of gifting? $100 seems unlikely to convince society to want to perform, so make it $1000 per gift, with the option of donation to a local charity instead. What astounds me is how much money those megachurches swindle - that could instead be put into factual good use, even right there in their own communities. If there were three of me the planet wouldn't survive, but two and we might agree on a prosperity church wealth redistribution app, so there is that improbability to consider.

Maybe a special cop goodie for every $10,000 gifted? Like a vacation getaway to a symposium presented by the now infamous Vogon poetry generator app. Or Cancun cruise for two. It's really not that expensive and would express solidarity for police offering their lives every single day on the job. These crazy theists won't devote themselves to their pledges of Godliness, just their wallets to the pulpit. Harness that and we have over unity!
