Kentucky clerk Kim Davis has found a way to have her wedding cake and eat it too: she’s back in the office collecting a paycheck but she won’t be issuing any marriage licenses to gay couples, no siree.

It’s not exactly her choice—deputy clerks have already indicated they’re going to issue the licenses over her objections—but Davis is graciously refusing to take credit for her office doing the right thing, morally and legally speaking.

Davis told reporters Monday, “Any unauthorized license that they issue will not have my name, my title or my authority on it. Instead, the license will state that they are issued pursuant to a federal court order.”

And despite her refusal do her job and/or treat people equally, she also insists, “I love my lord Jesus, all people and my job.”

So which of her other clerkly duties, if any, will Davis be performing today? If this picture is any indication, I’d guess taking a nap.

If you can’t beat them, don’t join them!
