Kentucky Clerk Asks Court To Force Governor To Let Her Deny Gay Marriages

Lawyers for jailed Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis said on Monday they had asked an appellate court to force Governor Steve Beshear to let her refuse to issue same-sex marriage licenses based on her religious convictions.

The lawyers sought emergency relief from the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, asking it to grant Davis an exemption from the "governor's mandate that all county clerks issue marriage licenses," the non-profit legal advocacy group Liberty Counsel, which represents Davis, said in a news release.

"The governor's refusal to take elementary steps to protect religious liberties has now landed Kim Davis in jail," Liberty Counsel founder and chairman Mat Staver said.
This wing nut job is real, real, stupid. There's no way her religion will be honored by government. It is NOT allowed in our constitutional laws. She really is one delusional born again evangelical who believes god's laws outdo the US laws. Let's show her she's full of herself. Let's tell her to have her god go to the governor and tell him. It won't make a bit of difference, but let's let that be the contingency upon which she is again asked by the judge she held in contempt if she will resign.

I'm curious. Did this woman make it past the 6th grade?

She CAN'T do it? Of she just doesn't WANT to?
in this instance it doesnt matter, she is refusing to do something she is able to do and that is part of her job description to do. she said "no, i am not doing it".

shes fired. why is there any debate about this?

If anyone understood the Kentucky RFRA, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, and the First Amendment, then they would understand that contained in her brief was relief from the state under both, which the district court erred by not granting a stay until the accommodation was met by the state:
Modifying the prescribed Kentucky marriage license form to remove the multiple references to Davis’ name, and thus to remove the personal nature of the authorization that Davis must provide on the current form.

So are you saying that if the President of the United States refused to follow the Constitution because it offended his religious views, and was acting on what "God told him" to do instead... you would be okay with that because we have a Religious Freedom Restoration Act that says he can do as he wants? There is no moral obligation to carry out the duties of his office?

What does that have to do with my post?
