Kim Davis, a clerk in the Rowan County, Kentucky courthouse was again ordered to issue same-sex marriage licenses after the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of appeals upheld the lower court’s ruling. The Appeals court determined that Davis could not ignore the recent Supreme Court ruling on legalization of same-sex marriage
Davis has again refused, her lawyer is considering taking the case to the Supreme Court.
Davis remained in her office this morning as crowds of couples seeking marriage license, reporters and onlookers filled the building.
Author’s note: While we admire Ms. Davis’ devotion and fortitude, ultimately she will lose this battle and likely her job. However, she must have some backing in the County otherwise she would already have been out. We are wondering if there is some national organization lending support behind the scenes. If her lawyer can make headway in elevating this to the Supreme Court, it may keep the issue alive long enough for a Republican president to reach the White House. Stay tuned.
