Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis: Four Marriages To Three Different Men While Denying Others To Wed

September 2, 2015

The behavior of Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis is simply unacceptable. Not only has she made a spectacle of herself but also allowed for the all too-true caricatures many have of people in that region of the country to once again be brought to attention.

When Davis who has had four marriages to three different men, which seems an odd background to have when it comes making statements about the sanctity of marriage, was elected by a narrow margin she made a public vow to follow the law.

“My words can never express the appreciation but I promise to each and every one that I will be the very best working clerk that I can be and will be a good steward of their tax dollars and follow the statutes of this office to the letter.”

Those was simply words without meaning as we now have come to know. Davis’ defiance of a court order to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples places her in a legal path that can only lead to her dismissal, since it seems obvious she has no inner guidance system to allow her to see reason and follow the law.

If she cannot fulfill her job duties as outlined by the law she needs to haul herself to the local coffee shop and start looking in the help-wanted listings for her next paycheck. She simply cannot think the laws of her state or the nation can be tossed aside like her first three marriages so she can grind her bigotry deeper against gay couples who wish to marry.

I understand she is from a place where the best teachers never were hired but any good civics book will underscore for this long haired Bible-thumper that in this nation laws are to be respected and abided by.

Davis has said she got involved with religion to fulfill the dying wish of her mother in law. She fails to mention which one of those mothers-in-law it happened to be.

There is no shortage of legal hell that is about to reign down on this throwback of what so many still think the South is all about. In the end she will either bow to the law or need to seek a richer husband.

She must have at least one cousin with some cash.

    Looks to me like you’re letting your bigotry shine through towards the end there. While I agree it is her religious right, she did swear to uphold the laws and follow the laws of the office. If it is due to her beliefs that she won’t, then she should step down. If she is claiming to follow the Bible – the follow it all – you can’t pick and choose which parts of it to follow – If she’s been married that many times and has living x-husbands, the according to the Bible she is living in adultery.
    Jesus said that neither husband nor wife should separate from the other (Matthew 5:31-32, Mark 10:2-12, Luke 16:18). Jesus also said that remarriage after divorce constitutes adultery:
    Pharisees came to him to test him. They asked, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any and every reason?” “Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” “Why then,” they asked, “did Moses command that a man give his wife a certificate of divorce and send her away?” Jesus replied, “Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because your hearts were hard. But it was not this way from the beginning. I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery.” (TNIV, Matthew 19:3-9)
    If you are going to follow the Bible, then follow it. None of us are perfect and I surely don’t claim to be. I have. Not everyone from KY is ignorant, so don’t try to lump us all in one basket and show your ignorance. You have a right to your opinion, I could say you’re just like all the rest and expect those who don’t agree with you to just bow down and not say anything – but I am not saying that.
    Now I’m off my soapbox for a time.
