In a letter to the board of supervisors, Grenada County Circuit Clerk Linda Barnette announced her resignation on Tuesday, citing the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage.
Barnette has been the circuit clerk for 24 years, and announced that her resignation is effective immediately.
“The Supreme Court’s decision violates my core values as a Christian,” she wrote. “My final authority is the Bible.

Barnette has not yet been available to take phone calls.
