Yesterday, U.S. District Court Judge David Bunning ordered Rowan County clerk Kim Davis to begin issuing marriage licenses or risk setting a “dangerous precedent.” As he wrote:
Our form of government will not survive unless we, as a society, agree to respect the U.S. Supreme Court’s decisions, regardless of our personal opinions. Davis is certainly free to disagree with the court’s opinion, as many Americans likely do, but that does not excuse her from complying with it.
This morning, yet another same-sex Kentucky couple said that they had been denied a marriage license by the Rowan County Clerks’ Office.
The religious right loves its martyrs and GoFundMe campaigns. Let’s keep our eyes on this one.
Anyone think Kim needs a new hairdo?
