Kim Davis Takes Another Swipe at Same-Sex Couples

Kim Davis Takes Another Swipe at Same-Sex Couples


She's baaaack. The Kentucky county clerk says same-sex couples mistreated her when she refused to issue them licenses.

Antigay Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis continues to maintain she's a victim, eight months after she was jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

Davis was a guest on Truths That Transform, a religious program from D. James Kennedy Ministries. Interviewed by the ministries' president, Frank Wright, Davis maintained that marriage equality is still not the law of the land. Seemingly unaware that Supreme Court rulings override local statutes, Davis insisted she was not obligated to provide licenses to same-sex couples. When people would present copies of the Obergefell v. Hodges decision that established marriage equality nationwide, she would say, "That's not a law, that's a ruling."

When couples objected to her explanation, Davis said she'd "go to the Bible."

"They didn't want to hear that, though," Davis told Wright. "They wanted to shove that paper down my throat and make me eat it for my dinner, you know?"

Davis recently sued the state of Kentucky, which removed her name from licenses given to same-sex couples but still forced her to issue them. The case was dismissed.
