Rowan County, Kentucky clerk Kim Davis remained insistent that she was right in denying marriage licenses to same-sex couples during an interview on Wednesday with Fox News host Megyn Kelly.
“When the legal challenges ended up not going in your favor, many people have asked, why not just resign at that point?” Kelly asked.
“If I resign I lose my voice,” Davis replied. “Why should I have to quit a job that I love and that I’m good at? I’ve been a county employee and served the public well for over 26 years before I got elected. It comes back to, they can accommodate for all sorts of issues, and we ask for one simple accommodation and we cannot receive it.”
The interview aired hours after a federal judge rejected Davis’ request for a stay on the order imposed upon her to issue the licenses regardless of sexual orientation.
It does not matter if Davis has "served the public well for 26 years." She is not serving the public well today and she should leave her position so that somebody who is not a Christo-fascist can take the job.
I found it almost incredible that at one point Davis says "Have we come to a place that we can't accommodate everybody? That we can't agree to disagree, and still have respect for each other?"
Of course the answer is yes. We can.
But apparently SHE cannot. Nor can she use her authority to deny rights to a group of people with whom she disagrees.
Oh and in response to her contention that she is simply upholding the word of God, and how God defined marriage "since the beginning of time," perhaps Davis needs to study this a little more carefully.
