Judge ParkerWhile Dallas and Tarrant counties got a windfall in revenue today as hundreds of couples married, officials in Collin, Denton, Johnson, Hood and Wise counties refused to issue licenses today.

Representatives for Denton County claimed the delay was a computer problem and it will start issuing on Monday.

The others are simply dragged their feet, claiming they need a new form from the state. Funny how Dallas and Tarrant counties didn’t have that problem.

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick claimed he was getting calls from county clerks in every county across the state that said they didn’t want to perform weddings for religious reasons. Here’s some news for the lieutenant governor: county clerks issue state licenses. They do not perform weddings.
