Kim Davis Has Now Officialy Become The “Sweet Cakes” Of Country Clerks
Kim Davis has become the “Sweet Cakes” of country clerks. Melissa and Aaron Klein became the poster children for the nefarious gay agenda after refusing to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple because it was “against their deeply held religious beliefs.”
Meanwhile in the Hamlet of Kentucky, four times married Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis has refused to issue marriage licensees to gay couples. Davis insists that issuing such a salience would be a “searing act of validation” that would “forever echo in her conscience.” Overruled by every court, Davis’ appeal to the Supreme Court was denied – and not just by Justice Kagan, by the entire court.
Davis and the entire staff of the Rowan County Clerk have just been ordered to appear in Federal court by U.S. District Judge David Bunnig.
Would Davis really rather go to jail then do her job as prescribed by law?
Will she be goaded into continuing to refuse and become the uwitting “gotcha moment” the religious-rights crowd has been pandering for?
LGBTQnation has the latest:
A county clerk in Kentucky who has invoked “God’s authority” and is defying the U.S. Supreme Court by refusing to license same-sex marriage has been summoned along with her entire staff to explain to a federal judge why she should not face stiff fines or jail time.
U.S. District Judge David Bunning moved swiftly Tuesday after a lesbian couple asked him to find Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis in contempt. Davis told several couples and a crowd of supporters and protesters that her religious beliefs prevent her from sanctioning gay marriage, and then retreated again, closing her office door and blinds to the raucous scene outside.
“Since Defendant Davis continues to collect compensation from the Commonwealth for duties she fails to perform,” they asked Bunning to “impose financial penalties sufficiently serious and increasingly onerous” to compel her immediate compliance without delay.
Rowan County Attorney Cecil Watkins says the federal court alerted him that a hearing is scheduled for 11 a.m. Thursday in Ashland.
As an elected official, Davis can’t be fired; her impeachment would have to wait until the Legislature’s regular session next year or a costly special session.
Davis rejected David Moore and David Ermold’s license request for a fourth time, and then told them to leave.
“We’re not leaving until we have a license,” Ermold said as reporters and cameras surrounded them.
