Kentucky Clerk Sued for Not Issuing Gay-Marriage Licenses
CLAIRE GALOFARO, Yahoo: Kentucky Clerk Sued for Not Issuing Gay-Marriage Licenses
The American Civil Liberties Union of Kentucky filed a federal lawsuit against Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis on Thursday afternoon on behalf of two homosexual and two heterosexual couples, all of whom were turned away when they tried to get marriage licenses from Davis’ office this week.
Davis has said that her Christian beliefs prevented her from complying with the Supreme Court decision, so she decided to issue no more marriage licenses to any couple, gay or straight.
Remember how the Right railed that the states would defy SCOTUS? Took mere days for that to end as Bobby Jindal has surrendered and the office in New Orleans under his control has started issuing licenses to same sex couples. There are only a few die hard clerks and judges left in the South, and now one of them is going to find out how expensive it is to engage in blatant illegal discrimination.
