WHAT HURTS MOST …. IMAGINE THAT!
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.
By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
Kimberly Jean Bailey Davis (born September 17, 1965) is the county clerk of Rowan County, Kentucky. In 2015, Davis gained national media attention after defying a federal court order requiring that she issue marriage licenses following the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, starting a same-sex marriage controversy in Kentucky. In the ruling, the US Supreme Court held that the right to marriage is guaranteed to same-sex couples by the Fourteenth Amendment.
After the Supreme Court decision, Davis began refusing to issue any licenses, either to same-sex or opposite-sex couples. Four couples represented by the ACLU filed a lawsuit against Davis (Miller v. Davis).
The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky ordered Davis to issue licenses as required by law. Her lawyers filed an emergency application with the Supreme Court seeking to put the lower court’s order on hold while she pursued an appeal, but the application was denied. Davis continued to defy the court order and deny marriage licenses, saying she was acting “under God’s authority“.
