For the last time: 1-2-3
1. The First Amendment protects people by prohibiting the government or its agents from imposing religious beliefs on the public. It does not protect the government or government agents from the public.

2. If you are a court clerk, you are an agent of the government. You are not the public; as the government, you are not protected here.

3. The people being protected by the First Amendment in this case are those applying for marriage licenses; they are being protected FROM CLERKS IMPOSING THEIR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS ON THE PUBLIC.
