KY Clerk Says No
(1 min Audio Report – Faith2Action)
A county clerk could go to jail for exercising her religious beliefs in Kentucky.
The Supreme Court refused to let Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis practice her faith in elected position. By declining to intervene in the case, the Supreme Court showed it wasn’t as interested in protecting religious freedom as they had proclaimed in the Obergefell ruling.
But Kim Davis says she is under a higher authority: God.
Her deeply held Christian beliefs will not let her participate in what the Bible calls sin–no matter what the court says.
Liberty Counsel filed her petition with the court saying, “If a (same-sex marriage) license is issued with Davis’ name, authorization, and approval, no one can unring that bell…That searing act of validation would forever echo in her conscience.”
