kentucky clerk kim davis gay marriage
A Rowan County, Kentucky Clerk has been caught on camera blatantly flouting the law of the land.
In a truly horrible altercation, David V Moore and his partner of 17 years were refused a marriage license because the Clerk, Kim Davis, decided it offended her “Christian” sensibilities.
The couple was made to wait at the back of the office while several people cut ahead of them, all while some cringe worthy cell phone filming stand-off waged on.
A sweatpants clad woman filmed the couple’s friend who was filming the proceedings as the county employees announced that the cops had been called—and then, another friend jumped in, filming the sweatpants clad woman filming the couple’s friend who was filming her.
Like a really bad old western movie, but with phones instead of guns.
When the couple was finally permitted a few minutes with a county official they were refused service.
Moore politely explained that he had a letter from the Governor’s office stating that all the County offices are to issue marriage licenses, as well as a copy of the Supreme Court ruling granting the right for gay couples to marry throughout each of the 50 states.
But, apparently, the Rowan County Clerks answer to a much higher authority than the United States Supreme Court and the law of the land—they answer only to whatever they think their fictitious God demands—which, quite frankly, means they should be fired from their government appointed jobs.
Moore explains that he and his partner have lived in the county for ten years, and just want to get married, as is their legal right…but, nope.
“You can go to any other county and get your marriage license,” one woman tells the couple. “We’re just not doing it.”
“We own a property here. We pay taxes here. We live here,” Moore explains, before being cut off. “I’m sorry, that’s [Kim Davis’] choice,” the woman says.
“No, it’s not her choice,” Moore points out. “We have our rights.”
“We have rights too as a Christian,” the woman says, seemingly oblivious to the fact she is employed by the united states government and not by the big man upstairs.
Finally, Moore and his partner are granted a minute with the great God fearing Kim Davis herself, who demands the filming ends, before, of course refusing to grant them a marriage license.
Disgusting. Absolutely disgusting.
