MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) ? A county clerk in Kentucky who has invoked "God's authority" and is defying the U.S. Supreme Court by refusing to license same-sex marriage has been summoned along with her entire staff to explain to a federal judge why they should not face stiff fines or jail time.

U.S. District Judge David Bunning moved swiftly Tuesday after a lesbian couple asked him to find Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis in contempt. Davis told several couples and a crowd of supporters and protesters that her religious beliefs prevent her from sanctioning gay marriage, and then retreated again, closing her office door and blinds to the raucous scene outside.

The U.S. Supreme Court declined to intervene Monday night, leaving Davis no legal ground for her continued refusal Tuesday morning. Lawyers for the two gay couples who originally sued her asked the judge Tuesday to find her in contempt, but punish her with only financial penalties, not jail time.

"Since Defendant Davis continues to collect compensation from the Commonwealth for duties she fails to perform," they asked Bunning to "impose financial penalties sufficiently serious and increasingly onerous" to compel her immediate compliance without delay.

As an elected official, Davis can't be fired; her impeachment would have to wait until the Legislature's regular session next year or a costly special session.

Before retreating into her inner office, Davis asked David Moore and David Ermold to leave. It was the fourth time the couple had been rejected, and they refused, surrounded by reporters and cameras.

"We're not leaving until we have a license," Ermold said.

"Then you're going to have a long day," Davis told him.

From the back of the room, Davis' supporters said: "Praise the Lord! ... Stand your ground."

Other activists shouted that Davis is a bigot and told her: "Do your job."

If she can't be fired, they should go elsewhere- what's the point of beating a dead horse? Obviously, she isn't going to change her stance- next year, they can work on getting her impeached- it won't be hard, she disobeyed the Supreme Ct. Directive-

"Praise the Lord! ... Stand your ground."


AMEN! I support Davis! 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 2 years ago -

Then maybe you can give her a job, after she's impeached- 

logic --- 2 years ago -

she disobeyed the Supreme Ct. Directive-

Not true. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 2 years ago -

Ummm.. Yeah, she did- 

Miss Understanding --- 2 years ago -

She did but so what! She is sticking by her morals! 

itstxdaddy --- 2 years ago -

Ummm.. Yeah, she did-

no she didn't. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 2 years ago -

That's her choice- she chooses that over her job, that's the consequences- she's ok with that, good for her- 

itstxdaddy --- 2 years ago -

i don't know if she's "right" or "wrong" but i admire her convictions...

That's her choice- she chooses that over her job, that's the consequences- she's ok with that, good for her-

absolutely true. 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 2 years ago -

LOL...... the bigot card.

Just another example of "If you don't agree with my agenda." You're a: bigot/racist/homophobe/etc. 

Judas --- 2 years ago -

Obviously you don't understand what a bigot is. Hurry now, go look it up 

them --- 2 years ago -

Are these "bigots" sub-humans? 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 2 years ago -

Poor Judy. 

a889324uu --- 2 years ago -

I wonder how many here would support a Muslim working at the DMV who refused to issue a woman a driver's license, if it went against their "religious convictions."

You guys would be squealing for their head on a platter.
Lie and say that isn't true... 

them --- 2 years ago -

Be careful with your rhetoric. We don't need more liberals feeling they can justifiably murder any more people than they already have. 

fuzz81 --- 2 years ago -

fuzz81 --- 2 years ago -

Miss understanding.. How is she "sticking to morals"? It's sticking to her immorals if anything 

a889324uu --- 2 years ago -

Be careful with your rhetoric. We don't need any more liberals feeling they can justifiably murder people.

Does being so dense come naturally to you, or is it something you have to work on? 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 2 years ago -

Would you support this person? 

Proud American --- 2 years ago -

judas, you are one of the biggest partisan name-callers yet you whine about people picking on mark. Is he your son?

Absolutely not. She has a job to do. That's the law. She has basically admitted that she won't do her job. She needs to do her job or be removed from her job. There are other legal grounds to make her do her job or remove her without impeachment, and that's what the federal judge is doing now. She will be fined and/or go to jail. That might make her a hero to some, but she will be replaced by an acting clerk who will issue the licenses. Net result is she loses.

I do like the Muslim analogy though. 

a889324uu --- 2 years ago -

Would you support this person?

Absolutely not.

But then again, I don't support religious zealots who attempt to force their warped version of morality on everyone else.

Religion belongs in two places: Your home and your church. If you want to pray while eating a meal, before you take a test, or over someone's hospital bed, that's your right.

It is NOT your right, as a servant of the public, to go against the laws and regulations of this country and in an attempt to protect your rights, deny the rights of others.

This isn't going to end well for Kim Davis; she's just the latest in a long line of Christian, conservative martyrs that think their personal views should be crammed down everyone else's throats.

No one is forcing her to support marriage equality.
They are forcing her to sign the dang license and DO. HER. JOB.

Period.

Can't answer the question? Then...

I think you missed the point soupy. Nobody should support that. They're hired to perform a job. It's their right to not work there, but they can't refuse to perform their duties based on religious nonsense. 

a889324uu --- 2 years ago -

^ that isn't a question. Derp.

Does your wife know you are posting her photo online?

judas, you are one of the biggest partisan name-callers yet you whine about people picking on mark. Is he your son?

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 2 years ago -

I get the point. I also know this isn't going to last long for this woman.

That Kentucky Clerk who claims her authority comes from God has been married 4 times. Meet Kim Davis.

so basically you want to choose who has the superior rights? Interesting. 

fuzz81 --- 2 years ago -

Where did she say choosing who's rights? "It is NOT your right" provided the context 

Judas --- 2 years ago -

You want to know what a bigot is? Soup is a bigot. He has no tolerance for those with a differing opinion than his own. Dreaded is right behind as is PA.

Aborto nails it again. She's as hypocritical as the lot of them on this thread. 

Judas --- 2 years ago -

so basically you want to choose who has the superior rights? Interesting.


Stupid response. Basically you have the right to not work there if you are unable to perform your job function. Period. 

them --- 2 years ago -

Are these couples interested in getting married or forcing their will on this moron? The next county can't be that far away. 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 2 years ago -

sniff. sniff. 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 2 years ago -

I have no tolerance for stupidity. 

fuzz81 --- 2 years ago -

I have no tolerance for stupidity.?

Fighting your inner self? 

Proud American --- 2 years ago -

comprehension problems? Read her statement. jams said the right of the gay people supersedes the rights of the county clerk.

You want to know what a bigot is? Soup is a bigot. He has no tolerance for those with a differing opinion than his own. Dreaded is right behind as is PA.Aborto nails it again. She's as hypocritical as the lot of them on this thread.

you have some serious issues. You don't even see the irony, do you?

Stupid response. Basically you have the right to not work there if you are unable to perform your job function. Period.

I know you are an expert on stupid. However, you clearly support deciding whose rights are superior when you make that argument...do you realize that? 

Proud American --- 2 years ago -

Are these couples interested in getting married or forcing their will on this moron? The next county can't be that far away.

Bingo! We have a winner! 

Judas --- 2 years ago -

Fighting your inner self?


LOL yep he's a bigot from the get go, a textbook example as they say. The funny part is he doesn't even get that by saying, "You're stupid because you don't agree with me" just proves his bigotry!!!
