Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis Goes to Jail, Refuses to Issue Gay Marriage Licenses, Rowan County
Kim Davis has been jailed in contempt of court for refusing to issue marriage licenses after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled to legalize samesex marriage in June. Ms. Davis argued that the Supreme Court order infringed upon her religious beliefs and liberties. I will ask you all to leave. Why are you not issuing marriage licenses today Because I'm not. Under whose authority are you not issuing licenses Under God's authority. U.S. District Judge David Bunning ruled to jail Davis until she begins issuing marriage licenses because her good faith belief is simply not a viable defense..
Bluegrass politics reports that the crowd outside erupted in applause. The judge did his job and followed the laws and held her in contempt of court and she should have to follow those laws as well. Hours after she was sent to jail she rejected a proposal that would have allowed her deputies to grant samesex marriage licenses. She would have been considered for release from custody if she complied. Five of the six deputies told the Judge they would issue the licenses. The lone holdout was Ms. Davis's son, Nathan. Kim Davis says, I've weighed the cost.
And I'm prepared to to jail This is about upholding the word of God. But as many Twitter users have pointed out, Kim has been married four times. Kim Davis' twins were born five months after her divorce from her first husband. But were actually fathered by her eventual third husband. Who she divorced to marry her fourth husband.

Your Arguments Are Invalid Gay Marriage
Good Morning, John or rather, complicated morning John, 'cause stuff's been going down this week. As you know the state of North Carolina, where our parents live, just decided to just outright ban gay marriage like stick it in the constitution Opposing gay marriage is not a viewpoint that I understand. And I know this tutorial is going to piss people off, but I don't care anymore. This isn't a political issue, it's just deciding that we're going to treat some citizens of our country differently than other citizens. That's wrong.
So I want to go through some of the arguments that I hear and why they're crazy! ONE, what's the big deal, why can't gay people just, you know, have a party and say they're committed to each other. Why do they gotta come in on our thing Irrelevant. This isn't complicated. If some people can get married, and other people can't then that's wrong. TWO But.God! Marriage can be a religious thing. It can also be a secular thing. And guess what! Not everyone in the world is of the same religion.
Preventing gay people from getting married is not an expression of religious freedom It's an expression of religious oppression Cause in the religion of the gay people getting married, presumably their God thinks it's okay. And you are oppressing them But.The Bible The Bible is not a legal document. Our country was founded upon the idea of a separation between church and state. The Bible is also very explicit about the rules of farmers selling their daughters as slaves. So maybe not the best document to base our laws on. Gay marriage would undermine the institution of marriage This is a thing that I have named I've created a name for it in my head, because I see them all the time.
I'm calling them hypothetheories. So a hypothesis is a question that you ask. You say, 'I wonder if gay marriage would undermine the institution of marriage'. That's a hypothesis, that you can then go out and test in any number of ways. And then if you confirm that it is true and it explains phenomena, then you can eventually convert that into a theory. If you skip the middle step and just assume that now you have a true statement of fact, theory, then you have created what I call a hypothetheory.
I could make the exact opposite hypothesis and it would be just as valid because it would have just as much testing behind it. I could say that not a lot of people who love each other to get married, that is undermining the institution of marriage. That seems like a valid thing, now let's go test it. So stop saying this as if it is truth, because you just made it up and you're like, Oh! That makes sense to me! Why does that make so much sense to me, it does!.
Whatever! It must be true! Make sense! And you know why it makes sense It's because of the biggest actual complaint that people have about gay marriage which is It's unnatural. It doesn't feel right to me. And maybe to you, it doesn't seem right because we build our world, we build the rules of the world that we live in. That's how we understand this place. And I think to a lot people, it feels like this is a big messy, gray world and at least there are some sharp distinctions.
Like the distinctions between genders and sexual orientation and those are just lines that should always be hard lines, but saying that that simplicity is natural is idiotic because the most natural thing in the world is complexity, and gender and sexual orientation are proven over and over again to not be firm lines. The whole world is gray and if you just appreciate that, if you just understand that and appreciate that, then it's beautiful. But if you try and spend your whole life fighting against it, then you are going to be bitter about the world actually being more complicated than it is.
And you're gonna make other people's lives less awesome. Which is exactly what this boils down to. Because there are a hundred arguments against gay marriage, you could come up with all kinds of hypothetheories and just spout them off and people will say, Nod nod yes yes yes. But to me there is only one argument that matters for gay marriage. That all people in our country should be seen as equals in the eyes of the law. So North Carolina and all of the 30 other states that have passed laws like this, you better check yourself because we can't live in a society like that and call ourselves Americans.
Johnson County judge orders clerk to issue samesex marriage licenses
WE WILL TALK ABOUT HOW MUCH RAIN WILL BE FALLING, AND MORE SPECIFICALLY THE TIMELINE. A BIG DEVELOPMENT IN THE FIGHT TO LEGALIZE SAMESEX MARRIAGE IN KANSAS. A JOHNSON COUNTY JUDGE ORDERED THE COUNTY CLERK OFFICE TO ISSUE MARRIAGE LICENSES TO GAY COUPLES. ELI ROSENBERG HAS THE LATEST DETAILS. THIS IS BIG NEWS. WE JUST TALKED TO A COUPLE FROM GARDNER WHO SAW THE NEWS OF THE JUDGE'S ORDER ON FACEBOOK AND RACED TO THE COURT TO FILL OUT AN APPLICATION FOR MARRIAGE. IT IS AN INTERESTING STORY HAVE THE JUDGE'S ORDER CAME TO BE.
I HAD A CHANCE TO TALK TO KEVIN MORIARTY IN HIS OFFICE. THIS STARTED JUST BEFORE THE COURT CLOSED YESTERDAY EVENING. A SAMESEX COUPLE CAME INTO JUDGE APPLY FOR A LICENSE, AND THE JUDGE TOLD THEM TO COME BACK THIS MORNING. THEY ARE BELIEVED TO BE THE FIRST COUPLE TO COME TO A COURTHOUSE IN JOHNSON COUNTY TO APPLY FOR A MARRIAGE LICENSE, WHICH REQUIRES THE CHIEF JUDGE TO WEIGH IN, WHICH BROUGHT US TO THE ORDER. THE ORDER INSTRUCTS THE CLERK TO ISSUE MARRIAGE LICENSES TO ALL INDIVIDUALS, INCLUDING SAMESEX.
INDIVIDUALS, PROVIDING THEY ARE OTHERWISE QUALIFIED TO MARRY. ALL LOVING COUPLES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY ARE SAMESEX OR NOT, DESERVE THE RIGHT TO GET MARRIED, TO ENTER INTO A LOVING RELATIONSHIP WITH ALL THE BENEFITS OFFERED. I THINK IT IS THE RIGHT CALL. TALKING WITH THE JUDGE, HE WAS QUICK TO SAY THE ORDER REPRESENTS HOW HE INTERPRETS THE LAW. IT DOES NOT REPRESENT THE OPINIONS OF OTHER JUDGES HERE IN JOHNSON COUNTY. COMING UP, WE WILL HEAR A LOT MORE FROM THIS COUPLE, INCLUDING WHY THEY ARE STILL NERVOUS AFTER.

SHAROKINA TODAY SHE SAYS KIM DAVIS, THE ROWAN COUNTY CLERK IN KENTUCKY, SHOULD HAVE FOLLOWED THE LAW. MEANWHILE, DAVIS' SUPPORTERS SAY.
SHE'S BEING DENIED THE RIGHT TO RELIGIOUS FREEDOM. ONE OF THEM IS RANDY THOMASSON OF SAVECALIFORNIA.COM, WHICH HAS STRONGLY OPPOSED SAMESEX MARRIAGE. RELIGIOUS ACCOMMODATION IS SOMETHING THAT EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE, BUT SOMEBODY BEING PUNISHED FOR THEIR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS, NO. WE'RE IN A NEW DAY IN AMERICA, IT'S A DARK DAY.
