Los Angeles City Atty. Rocky Delgadillo on Monday asked county supervisors to order Acting Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk Dean Logan not to allow employees who are uncomfortable with gay marriages to excuse themselves from officiating at such ceremonies.
"Mr. Logan has no legal standing to grant county employees the authority or ability to choose which marriages they wish to officiate at based upon personal views regarding an applicant's sexual orientation," Delgadillo wrote to board Chairwoman Yvonne B. Burke. "I urge you to immediately order Mr. Logan to . . . require every county employee generally tasked with officiating at marriage proceedings to do so, regardless of any personal beliefs or biases."
