Denied Gay Marriage...

A courageous county clerk in Kentucky Is defying the Supreme Court and saying she was acting “under God’s authority,” She denied marriage licenses to gay couples on Tuesday, less than a day after the court rejected her request for a delay.

The uproar unfolded shortly after 8 a.m. at the Rowan County Courthouse as two same-sex couples walked into the county clerk’s office, followed by a throng of journalists and chanting protesters on both sides of the issue. One couple, David Ermold and David Moore, tried to engage the county clerk, Kim Davis, in a debate before the cameras, but as she had before, she turned them away, saying repeatedly that she would not issue licenses to any couples, gay or straight.

“Under whose authority?” Mr. Ermold asked.

“Under God’s authority,” Ms. Davis replied.

While I don't agree with gay marriage, in the interest of biblical levity I agree with obeying all of Gods laws, not picking and choosing which ones to honor or adhere to. The bible says,

1 Peter Chapter 2:13

Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme;

So, the question is. Given this scripture, should Davis refuse to marry same sex couples even though it is the law of the land? Or does she have the right to ignore mans law and stand up for Gods law? 



  1. I believe that a marriage is between a man and a woman--not a woman and a woman, nor a man and a man. That being said, I also believe that the four marriages that Kim Davis, the Kentucky County Clerk, is alleged to have had is also against God's will. I could see if her four husbands were all deceased, but that does not appear to be the case (and if it were, law enforcement needs to get on that.) The crux of the matter for me is that she is an employee of the County (which answers to the State and the Federal Government) and she needs to carry out the law of the land. Now, if she is so offended by the new law, then she needs to simply get another means of employment.

  2. Just as a continuation: a report indicates that Kim Davis was wed to Dwain Wallace in 1984; Joe Davis "around" 1994; Thomas McIntyre, Jr., in 2007; and Joe Davis (again) in 2009. BTW, I also want to say that if the "gay" couples are so fired up to get married, since it is the law of the land--why not just go to a neighboring county--or another State?
