Grenada Circuit Clerk Resigns

(GRENADA, MS)  WCBI –  Grenada County Circuit Clerk Linda Barnette has resigned her position effective immediately in reaction to the Supreme Court ruling on same sex marriages.  In her letter to the board of supervisors Barnette says the court decision violates her core values as a Christian and she cannot in all good conscience issue marriage licenses to same sex couples under my name because the  Bible teaches that homosexuality is contrary to God’s plan and purpose for marriage and family.

Barnette has served as circuit clerk for 24 years.
