An East Texas county clerk opposed to marriage equality is expected to resign on Monday.

Rusk County commissioners are scheduled to vote Monday on County Clerk Joyce Lewis-Kugle's resignation, which she submitted Thursday.

According to the AP, County Judge Joel Hale, the county's top administrator, said that Lewis-Kugle wrote in her resignation letter that her religious faith prevented her from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

Lewis-Kugle's office was among those that did not issue licenses to gay and lesbian couples following the Supreme Court's June 26 ruling striking down bans on gay marriage in all 50 states.

District Attorney Michael Jimerson told the Tyler Morning Telegraph that Lewis-Kugle had sought his opinion on the matter.

“The Supreme Court is the law of the land. You can either resign in protest or issue the licenses,” Jimerson said he told her.

Commissioners are expected to accept Lewis-Kugle's resignation.
