Perhaps you should reread my posts in this thread. I support equal rights without equivocation.
Darth and I often trade jests on the forums. He knows I was kidding.
The Liberty Counsel isn’t only defending Davis’ case, though, but arguing for others to mimic her actions in ignoring the ruling and the law. This week, the organization shared on its Facebook page a number of articles, such as this from American Principle Project and this from Breitbart, all calling for “constitutional resistance” to the ruling in Obergefell vs. Hodges.
This meeting was a private meeting. No other members of the public were present.
Kim and Joe Davis were placed in a room with no one else present. Later Pope Francis arrived with only Vatican or Embassy personnel and security. He stretched out his hands. Kim clasped his hands, and he asked her to pray for him. She said she would, and she asked the Pontiff to pray for her, to which he said he would. Pope Francis then thanked Kim for her “courage.” They embraced. The Pope said, “Stay strong.” He then presented Kim and Joe with two Rosaries.
There was no line of people or other members of the public seen anywhere.

One of her deputy clerks said she deleted all mention of Rowan County, removed her name, and omitted references to deputy clerks. Only a deputy's name is on the form — and not his title — with a place for him to initial rather than to use his signature.
Those changes, the couples told the judge, were inconsistent with state rules for marriage licenses, raising potential questions about their validity.
But Davis' lawyers said Tuesday not to worry.
"The Kentucky governor and Kentucky attorney general both inspected the new licenses and publicly stated that they were valid and will be recognized as valid by the Commonwealth of Kentucky," the lawyers said.
In a flurry of back-and-forth court filings since the firestorm erupted, Davis' team also filed suit against Gov. Beshear and another state official for allegedly violating her religious freedom.
