Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis has lost another bid to delay issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
The Sixth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on Thursday denied her latest request for a reprieve.
So according to the courts Davis has to issue marriage licenses even if she thinks that by doing so the same sex couples will drag her to Hell along with them for all eternity.
But wait, all is not lost. Here comes newly elected Governor Matt Bevin to save the day:
Republican Kentucky Gov.-elect Matt Bevin said he plans to sign an executive order removing county clerks' names from state marriage licenses in the hope of avoiding more controversies like the one that arose a few months ago when Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, Reuters reported. Bevin will be sworn in to office Dec. 8.
In his first media availability since the win Tuesday, Bevin said he hopes the executive order will protect the religious beliefs of officials who are opposed to gay marriage, WLKY reported.
So to be clear, Rowan county will STILL be issuing marriage licenses to everybody, gay, straight, or bi. But now they will be issued without the name of the county clerk on them. And somehow THAT makes everything alright with Davis and her whackadoodle religious beliefs?
Nice to see this Bevin guy come right out of the gate pandering his ass off to the crazies.
You know that does not bode well for the people of Kentucky.
Of course what can you expect from a guy who got the Sarah Palin seal of approval?
