Attack of the County Clerk Offices in NC

A same-sex couple went to Greensboro, NC today.  They went to the Guilford County Clerk's office to ask for a marriage license.  They were turned away.

This is what is happening in NC: some group of LGBTQI couples are going to county clerk offices in the state of NC to find a county clerk who will be willing to "break the law" and give them a marriage license, just like they've done in NM.  If enough clerks do this, then a lawsuit will come about, pushing fast forward a legal case about equality of marriage license.

There are 100 counties in NC.  They've tried this in only a handful of county clerk offices.

Shall we all go?
