Poor Kim Davis—valiantly living her life, all while facing unbelievable discrimination and injustice, day in, day out—with no end in sight.
As Popdust previously reported, the Kentucky County court clerk has been waging war against the United States government, after she was denied the right to take away other people’s legal rights.
Adding to the indignity, Davis was also ordered to do the job that she is employed—and paid—to do… how very dare they?
So, what is this truly terrible thing Davis is being forced to do, as part of her government appointed position?
Issue marriage licenses to gay couples—as per the Supreme Court’s ruling on June 26, making same sex marriage legal in all 50 states.
The religious bigot—who has been married four times herself—has steadfastly refused to follow the law of the land, citing the "sanctity of marriage" and claiming her “conscience” prevents her from doing so—stating that God’s law is higher than that of her employers, the Government of the United States of America.
Lesser God bothered assholes would simply resign from a job that they felt they could not do—but, not Davis! She continues to fight on, even after a five day stint in jail for defying a federal court mandate, ordering her to issue marriage licenses to all eligible persons.
The 48-year-old lost her latest legal bid Thursday—requesting that U.S. District Judge David Bunning’s September 3rd mandate be delayed, letting Davis off the marriage license issuing hook, until her appeal is heard.
Davis’ lawyers, who work for the Liberty Counsel, a
bigoted hate group firm that fights against gay rights, tried to dodge the correct legal process, filing their request straight to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit, rather than with Judge Bunning.
The attorneys argued that it was the only course of action open to them, due to Judge Bunning’s "extraordinary doggedness” (AKA adherence to the law) however, the Court of Appeals was having none of it, ruling, "This is not valid reason to excuse moving the district court for a stay pending appeal in the context of this case.”
Which, when translated from legalese to regular English, means, "You need to follow the rules first before you come to us."
Gosh, what a revolutionary idea!!
Meanwhile, not surprisingly, Davis continues to refuse to follow the rules, or the law of the land, and has vowed to fight on.
