A defiant county clerk in Kentucky has again refused to issues marriage licenses to same-sex couples despite a ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court.
On Tuesday morning, as Rowan County clerk Kim Davis' office opened, two couples were denied licenses.
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday declined to intervene in the case, leaving Davis no legal grounds to refuse to grant licenses to gay couples. A district judge could now hold her in contempt, which can carry steep fines or jail time.
You know what really sucks though? Yes, Davis is going to get punished and the gay couples are going to get their licenses. But no matter what fines she gets saddled with she’s going to come out of this rich and retired. They’ll set up a Go Fund Me for her and she’ll walk away with more money than you or I will see in our lives. Why? Because Christianity doesn’t make people more moral – it makes them more tribal – so much so that they’ll dump tons of money toward rewarding one of their own for being an asshole.
Want to be a jerk who ***** with the lives of others and gets rewarded for it in this country? Look no further than to the most pious, most fundamentalist Christians – the ones who drone on about how their religion is the source of love and kindness.
“Our law says ‘one man and one woman’ and that is what I held my hand up and took an oath to and that is what I expected. If it takes it, I will go to jail over — if it takes my life, I will die for because I believe I owe that to the people that fought so I can have the freedom that I have, I owe that to them today, and you do, we all do. They fought and died so we could have this freedom and I’m going to fight and die for my kids and your kids can keep it.” www.advocate.com...

What a ridiculous woman. Jail and fines would be a good start. I'm guessing with a criminal record she will find it hard getting normal employment, maybe at a church perhaps.
It wouldn't surprise me in the gofundme thing happend. Stupid people are stupid.
