Kim Davis: I just want you all to know that we are not issuing marriage licenses today.
David: Based on what?
Kim Davis: I would ask you all to go ahead and…
David: Why are you not issuing licenses today?
Kim Davis: Because, I’m not.
David: Under whose authority are you not issuing licenses today?
Kim Davis: Under God’s authority.
A federal judge has thrown Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis in jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples because it would violate her strongly held religious conviction. Millions of like-minded Americans are rushing to her defense, with thousands of people signing a petition for her release.
Former Arkansas Gov. and 2016 presidential candidate Mike Huckabee is holding a rally on September 8th to protest Davis’ imprisonment on a contempt charge. Governor Huckabee tweeted out:
What a world, where Hillary Clinton isn’t in jail but Kim Davis is.
Kim Davis’ attorney, Mat Staver, said she does not want her name on the marriage certificates for same-sex couples.
She cannot issue a license that conflicts with her Christian values and beliefs regarding marriage that has her name as the authority on it.
Kim Davis’ husband, Joe, said she will remain in jail rather than compromise her beliefs.
She’ll stay in jail. She will not bend, she will not bow to nobody.
Please sign the petition to free Kim Davis from her jail cell. Support Kim Davis and her family as they represent those of us who value religious freedom in America!
