Anti-gay W. Virginia clerk screams at lesbian couple on their wedding day and calls them an ‘abomination’

Published

A Gilmer County deputy county clerk had a lesbian couple in tears after calling their union an “abomination” on what was supposed to be a happy day.

Samantha Brookover and Amanda Abramovich went last week to get married, according to the Charleston Gazette-Mail. The couple had loved ones and cameras in tow.

The West Virginia couple said Debbie Allen, the deputy clerk who processed their marriage license, gave them a biblical earful. They say Allen huffed and puffed, slammed things around then yelled at them for two or three minutes about her views that what they were doing was wrong in her eyes and God’s.

Brookover told the Gazette-Mail they were “flabbergasted and hurt and angry like you wouldn’t believe.”

It wasn’t the first time the women have been attacked for their sexual orientation, “But to have a complete stranger — someone that doesn’t know me — scream like that, it really cut down to the bone,” Abramovich said.

Allen doesn’t deny she told the couple that God would judge them but says she “talked nicely to them.”

“I just told them my opinion,” she told the paper. “I just felt led to do that. I believe God was standing with me and that’s just my religious belief.”

She added she “didn’t care to make eye contact with them.”

Brookover’s mother, Jill Goff, said she was sad when her daughter came out because she knew she would be treated differently.

“I love her with all my heart no matter what she does,” she told the paper. “What I said to her was I hate the way people are going to treat you. That makes me sad because for the rest of your life, you’re going to have to pay a price for this.”

The newlyweds believe that Allen didn’t properly do her job.

“Someone at McDonald’s can’t refuse to give someone a cheeseburger because they’re a heart attack risk,” Abramovich told the Gazette-Mail. “You’ve got to do your job. You can’t just scream at people.”

In what was possibly a hint to remind people of his legacy this Monday, former President Barack Obama gave a shout out to the anniversary of his signing of the 2009 economic stimulus package.

“Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history,” Obama tweeted with a photo of his signature on the bill.
