When she was jailed I felt the punishment didn't fit the crime, and I imagined she was going to be there a lot longer than she was.

By judging that she spent just a night or so in jail, was released, able to remain a clerk, got her name removed from the license, and still able to maintain her refusal to issue marriage licenses, while not physically preventing others from doing so, I can no longer argue that her punishment didn't fit the crime, if anything I think it might be too lenient.

If everyone else is fine with this, then I'm fine with this as well.

I'm not, but I have no say. She should have been removed.

I think you don't understand the US Justice system Tomasia. She committed no crime and received no punishment. She was held in contempt and it's only function is to force compliance with the judge's order. Comply and you're released. There is nothing punitive about it.
