Kim Davis Debate: It’s Not About Marriage
What’s really behind the attack on Kim Davis? Have you thought about it? Kim Davis is the Rowan County Kentucky Clerk who was jailed last week because of her refusal to issue marriage licenses to gay couples following the United States Supreme Court’s landmark ruling in June on the basis of her religious conviction. Davis stopped issuing all marriage licenses in June the day after the U.S. Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage nationwide. Two gay couples and two straight couples sued her. Yesterday, she was released from jail. As an apostolic Christian, she says gay marriage is a sin. She also says it would be a sin for her to issue a marriage license to a same-sex couple because the licenses are issued under her authority.

It’s Not About Marriage
What People are Saying in Support of Kim Davis
“What we end up having is the first example of the criminalization of a Christian for believing in the traditional definition of marriage. “We must defend religious liberty and never surrender to judicial tyranny. “I am proud of Kim for standing strong for her beliefs. Who will be next? Pastors? Photographers? Caterers? Florists? This is a reckless, appalling, out-of-control decision that undermines the Constitution of the United States and our fundamental right to religious liberty.” – Mike Huckabee
“Today, judicial lawlessness crossed into judicial tyranny. Today, for the first time ever, the government arrested a Christian woman for living according to her faith. This is wrong. This is not America. “I stand with Kim Davis. Unequivocally. I stand with every American that the Obama Administration is trying to force to choose between honoring his or her faith or complying with a lawless court opinion.” – US Senator Ted Cruz
