  AU admin

As this issue of Church & State was going to press, Americans United filed a lawsuit on behalf of a West Virginia same-sex couple who were harassed and disparaged by a county clerk. The two women, Amanda Abramovich and Samantha Brookover, visited the Gilmer County Clerk’s Office on Feb. 3, 2016, to obtain a marriage license. They were insulted by Deputy Clerk Debbie Allen, who called them an “abomination” to God and said God would “deal” with them.
