KY Clerk Jailed for Refusal to Issue Gay Marriage Licenses

The gay marriage debate and the fallout following the landmark Supreme Court decision earlier this summer appears to have escalated to a new level of vitriol this week after the jailing of a local county clerk.

Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis was ordered Thursday by a District Court judge to be detained by her own deputies and expedited to county jail for her refusal to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

Citing her religious convictions against the practice, Davis willingly submitted to the arrest but defiantly refused to authorize her deputy clerks to issue licenses in her absence.

Supporters of Davis argued to the throng of media outside the courthouse that the incident marks the first time in American history someone has been jailed for their belief in heterosexual, monogamous marriage.

  1. Not all the laws of the land are right. This is cleary a case of dictatorship, socialism, and communism,
    think in a way their laws say and do what their laws say or go down. I would have done the same thing she did. She is right in saying she has to be a voice for the Lord Her God. It is called conviction, moral compass, integrity. Marriage is between one man and one woman in Gods eyes. In Gods Law. The same law that says dont steal, dont murder, do not covet. They want our souls. Preachers and pastors and people of all faith who dont want this immoral law to stomp on your faith and heart and soul better get to protesting. Because as soon as you peep against the sodomite movement you are next. This is as real as it gets. Government defends and supports thuggs here, imigrant thuggs, and the cops are bad, but good when they have to go arrest a lady who stands up for her faith. A man and a man and a woman and s woman engaged in a sexual relationship is and always will be an abomonation. These 5 Man picked judges who made this law will be judged by all mighty God himself. Its time for the laws to change. Its time to fire all those perverted leaders who have no faith, no morals, no respect for anyone who has a God given right to say no to what they believe to be wrong. The Judge, the cops, and everyone who persecuted her for her faith are not just messing with her. They are messing with her maker. Her father in heaven. We as America only stand because of the Grace and Mercy of God upon this nation. Psalm 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
    Isaiah 5:14 Therefor hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude,
    and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth shall descend into it.
    Stand up for what is Right America. Freedom. If they want to unite as homos and lesbians to each their own. Dont try to tread on my own. Are you going to let them tread on you????
