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