Sorry, She's Not Sorry

S.C. Mayor Rants About Gay Marriage

"What's it gonna take these queers to realize they don't need a piece of paper," West Union, South Carolina Mayor Linda Oliver implored in an outrage-inducing Facebook post. Oliver was responding to a North Carolina county official's recent decision to accept marriage applications from same-sex couples, despite the state's gay marriage ban. "God will not bless their union because he plainly speaks against queers in the Bible," Oliver wrote in the post that was deleted but not quickly enough to avoid screenshots. "Want to cover your queer with insurance? Buy a policy. Want your queer to get your stuff when you die? Make a will." Oliver's post has already sparked a retaliatory "Recall West Union S.C. Mayor Linda Oliver" Facebook group, but she's not really surprised. "All I can say is if people want to crucify me, that's fine," she told Fox Carolina. "I don't want [gay marriage] rammed down my throat."
