Description

State workers in Texas can refuse to issue same-sex marriage licenses if doing so is contrary to his or her religious beliefs despite last week's US Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage across the country, according to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. Paxton said that while the Supreme Court justices had "fabricated" a new constitutional right, they did not diminish, overrule, or call into question the First Amendment rights to free exercise of religion. Paxton also called the victory to the American gay rights movement a lawless and flawed decision by an "activist" court. We look at the story on the Lip News with Mark Sovel and Nik Zecevic. http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/06/29/us-usa-court-gaymarriage-texas-idUSKCN0P900F20150629 Newest Lip News playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lIHVrR_nl68&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGcjJDo6cQBCQprDMQyUQY3r&index=1 BUZZSAW interview clips - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aaiXvasTvvg&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGeWhHPas6M9sKUhThquDNOc&index=1 CRIME TIME clips playlist - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4G93pnQld0&index=1&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGeC9DbpSnIvd2i9BHh2dBvv BYOD (Bring Your Own Doc) Highlight Videos- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zoC0g5fYHUA&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGeu2DCf6Ouo7hTsA5QB2MAL&index=1 MEDIA MAYHEM short videos playlist - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwZF-kQ1eDs&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGcz4un-zws5sMlCLk3NNjDP&index=1 https://www.facebook.com/thelip.tv http://www.youtube.com/theliptv
