Kentucky County Clerk Denies Gay Couple Marriage License On Video

 

To get a taste of what some gay couples trying to get married in areas that are refusing to obey the law are dealing with, click play on the video below. In it, David V. Moore and his partner attempt to get the marriage license they've earned in Rowan County Kentucky, but are turned down by Clerk Kim Davis and her staff in flagrant showing of disrespect of the U.S. Constitution. 

So, what kind of repercussion does the Rowan County Clerk office face for this kind of hooliganism? Towleroad reports:

"As we reported previously, Governor Steve Beshear, Attorney General Jack Conway and Bill May, executive director of the Kentucky County Clerks Association, have all advised county clerks to issue licenses to same-sex couples. In addition to lawsuits, they say clerks may face criminal charges for official misconduct."

Fire her NOW or sue both her and the county for not upholding federal law. Completely disgusting and contemptible that this woman has been married FOUR times and would even consider standing on issues of the sanctity of marriage. END OF DISCUSSION.

Unfortunately you can't persecute people for being so backwards, stupid and anti-gay, but you can sue them for denying you the right to marry.

I hope David and his partner sue the hell out of that bitch!

I am a government employee as well. I don't agree with some of the policies of my State and the Federal government, but I administer to the public under their auspices because ITS MY JOB.

What a hateful piece of subliminal slime. I'd call her an anushole but that body part serves a useful purpose.  The clerk above only serves up hate, and more hate. Fire her fu*$ing ass, and sue the heck out of the state.

She is definitely a terrible horrible person, but I think these guys went about this the wrong way. Video would have had a MUCH bigger impact if they hid the other cameras and played dumb, like they were a happy couple excited to get their license and if they are filming it is just to always remember the happy moment. I think bombarding them with cameras and making demands (which of course is the right thing to do as well) took away the emotional effect and point a video like this could have had.

Well we all can feel the way we like about this but now there are a few judges that are not allowing same sex couples to be married. So the fight is not over but we are all God's children and he has a plan for each and everyone of us. But I feel they all should be fired and they all need to go in front of Judge that supports the law and not just the system these then to stand behind. If it was anyone of us we would be in jail for a life time. So be fair and treat them the same way they would treat us. Jail time and a nice fine and then they would do their jobs right or be replaced... Just my thoughts on it..

Sue her and her office. She has no right to violate to SCOTUS ruling. She is breaking federal law. Call the FBI!

If they would start firing all these "Christian" workers who are not issuing licenses, then maybe it would stop.  If it is a directive from an elected official, that official should be removed by Office immediately for not following the laws of the Supreme Court. Enjoy your day in Court boys, because you have the Supreme Court on your side, and you cannot beat that!

These county clerk officials are clearly bigoted, small minded A-holes and should be personally sued and serve jail time for their refusal to perform their jobs according to the law. I have NO sympathy for their ignorance.

Since this is federal law. Isn't denying these couples to legally marry a federal offense?

Sadly, you can't fire most if not all county clerks as easily as you might think since they are an in an elected position.
