Rowan County, Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis has invoked “God’s authority” in her defiant stand against the dictates of Washington, DC. The Republican-controlled US Supreme Court which earlier this year forced homosexual marriage upon all fifty States has refused to hear Davis’ appeal for exemption in issuing marriage licenses to gay couples due to her Christian religion. A group of angry gay activists have gathered outside Davis’ office and are shouting against her.
Where are all the churches and self-proclaimed Christian conservatives to stand with Davis? Their resistance to Federal orders re-defining marriage appears to have largely wilted away. But one brave woman in Kentucky is willing to stand up to the US government and her courage deserves to be applauded.
