Christianist Liars in Iowa

Would Jesus really lie to the county recorders in Iowa about their legal responsibilities and duties?

The Christianist Liars in Iowa a.k.a. Iowa Family Policy Center has sent emails to Iowa's county recorders misinforming them that Iowa law allows them to discriminate against same-sex couples that apply for marriage licenses and seek to be married by county officials.  Really.

Iowa's Attorney General has already sent them correct and accurate information regarding their duties:

Attorney General Tom Miller has repeatedly warned county recorders that they do not have the authority to refuse to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. The Iowa Supreme Court unanimously ruled that the state’s ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional, and “recorders do not have discretion or power to ignore the Iowa Supreme Court’s ruling,” Miller said.

Why do these Christianists so blatantly lie to innocent folks?
