MOREHEAD, Ky. — A federal judge has ordered a Kentucky clerk to be placed behind bars until she complies with his order to issue marriage licenses to homosexuals despite her Christian identity.
US District Judge David Bunning declared Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis in contempt of court this morning after she explained in tears that it is not possible for her to comply with the order because of her Christianity.
“My conscience will not allow it,” she said. “God’s moral law convicts me and conflicts with my duties.”
While the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) had requested that Davis be heavily fined until she bends, Bunning told the court that a monetary punishment would not be enough to force her to obey, and expressed concern that supporters would help pay her fine.
Davis was then taken into custody by U.S. marshals and led out of the courthouse. Click here to continue reading.
