Kentucky Clerk on a Mission to Reverse Same-Sex Marriage Law
The person we are talking about is Kim Davis, the former Rowan county clerk who lost her job when she refused to issue a marriage license to gay couples.
Last year, in 2019, a court decided that couples who have been refused could sue Davis for damages.
Several couples went ahead with the suits and won, costing the state of Kentucky over $200,000 in legal fees. Davis also spent five days in jail for her refusal to do her job.
Now, she is partnering up with Alabama’s Foundation for Moral Law, founded by Roy Moore, to change the law not just in Kentucky, but across the entire US.
Kim Davis initially requested a religious exemption in her job, meaning that she could refuse same-sex marriages.
Now, according to PinkNews, Ray Moore’s foundation has filed a brief to the Supreme Court, supporting Davis’ actions.
In the brief, they are asking the Supreme Court to completely outlaw gay marriages, by overturning 2015’s Obergefell v. Hodges decision.
According to Moore’s wife, they may have a chance of actually proceeding with their little plan, as Anthony Kennedy is no longer a member of the Supreme Court.
“Now that Justice Kavanaugh has replaced Justice Kennedy, we hope that the Supreme Court will once again allow the states to recognize marriage for what it is: a union between one man and one woman for life,”
In the brief, Matt Clark, the foundation’s attorney mentioned that
Obergefell not only perverted the Constitution and changed the definition of marriage, but it also jeopardized the religious liberty of Kim Davis and millions of Americans who object to same-sex marriage.
Davis stopped issuing marriage licenses after 2015, as she felt they were against her Christian beliefs.
