Transgender woman says DMV clerk warned of hell

Nobody should have to put up with this kind of criminal behavior from the DMV.  Divulging information from DMV records violates state and civil rights laws.  Why this clerk wasn’t fired the firs time around is a mystery.  I hope Yusts’ lawyer sues this guy.

SAN FRANCISCO — A few days after Amber Yust visited the Department of Motor Vehicles in San Francisco to register her sex change from male to female, she got a letter at home from the DMV employee who had handled her application.

Homosexual acts, he informed her, were “an abomination that leads to hell.”

The same day, Yust said, a DVD arrived from a fundamentalist church warning of eternal damnation for anyone “possessed by demons” of homosexuality. The DMV employee’s letter had referred her to the church’s website as a source of “critical information for your salvation.”

What’s more, the DMV had kept the employee on in 2009 even after he refused to process another transgender woman’s name-change application, Yust said in a damage claim filed with the state, the precursor to a lawsuit.

    Dang! If that is what the DMV’s clerk believed, why didn’t he fall on his knees and PRAY in the silence of his heart for the person he believes is in the throes of hell. Instead he decided to take harsh god-like position and deal with the person in a very uncouth kind of way.
