Surely the facts are STRAIGHT FROM THE PIT OF HELL !
ASHLAND, Ky. — A county clerk who refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples was found in contempt of court Thursday and taken into custody.
“The idea of natural law superceding this court’s authority would be a dangerous precedent indeed,” U.S. District Judge David L. Bunning told Rowan County clerk Kim Davis.
“Thank you, judge,” she replied before being removed from the courtroom by U.S. marshals.
“Thank you Sir — may I have another ?”
Davis, an Apostolic Christian, had said it would violate her faith to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples and had directed her office to withhold marriage licenses to anyone, gay or straight. She was sued by four gay couples who had been denied licenses, and was ordered by Bunning last month to begin issuing the licenses this week.
But Davis refused, citing her religious beliefs. Attorneys for the four couples had not asked for jail time, but Bunning took more drastic action.
Have fun in jail dear!
