Victory for Kim Davis

Nobody has been worse bullied by the LGBT movement than Kim Davis. The County Clerk from Kentucky was actually jailed because she refused to compromise her principle, that marriage is the union of one man to one woman. Even after the Obergefell decision she would not cave in. She stood up for the truth courageously when faced with a tidal wave of bullying and abuse from LGBT groups and individuals. They threatened her with the loss of her job and brought cases demanding huge financial damages from her.

But to the credit of America, these cases have not succeeded. Kim Davis is still in her job, her personal and religious freedom has been upheld, and she will not be bankrupted by any malicious litigation.

She is an example to us all. WE LOVE YOU, KIM.

Join us on our podcast each weekday for an interesting story, well told, from Charisma News. Listen at charismapodcastnetwork.com.


Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis has won the fight for religious freedom after a federal judge issued an order dismissing all three 2015 marriage license lawsuits against her yesterday. U.S. Judge David Bunning dismissed in their entirety, Miller v. Davis, Ermold v. Davis and Yates v. Davis, which brings to an end the trial proceedings against her arising from the 2015 Obergefell decision.

Despite the ACLU’s attempt to continue the case against Kim Davis and assess damages against her, the federal district court dismissed the case, closed the files and ordered all the pending cases to be removed from the docket.

Davis, represented by Liberty Counsel, spent six days in jail last year for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples in violation of her right to freedom of conscience. Davis would not issue the licenses because they had her name and authority on them. As a result, Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin signed an executive order creating one marriage license form which does not require the county clerk’s name and title. The Kentucky General Assembly made Governor Bevin’s changes permanent with a bill that passed the State House with a 97-0 vote followed by a 36-0 vote in the State Senate. Bevin said his signature on the unanimous bipartisan legislation brought “statutory finality to the marriage license dilemma.”

“Kim Davis has won! We celebrate this victory for her and for every American,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “County clerks are now able to perform their public service without being forced to compromise their religious liberty. The case is now closed and the door has been shut on the ACLU’s attempt to assess damages against Kim Davis. This victory is not just for Kim Davis. It is a victory for everyone who wants to remain true to their deeply-held religious beliefs regarding marriage while faithfully serving the public,” said Staver.

One Response to Victory for Kim Davis

  1. notChristians says:

    The fact that we would be discussing Kimberly Jean Davis shows that we have lost the information war. I do not care about gay marriage and in 1973, this would not be news. If we talked about homosexuality in 1973, we’d be talking about how homosexuality is bad for health, often result of childhood sex abuse, etc.

    But most churches in the U.S. has become pro-homosexual and is changing to pro-transexual. Most people including Christians (esp. those in 20s) are accepting of homosexuality and Christian schools have been pushing the view that homosexuality is normal, which would not have been the case in 1973. If you ask Christians who are in their 20s what they think of Kimberly Jean Davis-many to most will say that she is a ‘hateful bigot’ and discrimination.

    What should we do? Though information war is lost, just tell the facts, because ugly facts and truths do not change though information war is lost. Yes, it’s a proven fact that childhood sex abuse is a major cause of homosexual/lesbian conduct in adulthood. Anybody who denies the link is dishonest, delusional or both. Never have I heard straights blame childhood sex abuse for reasons a man has sex with a woman and fathers children with her. Yet sometimes have heard gays and lesbians say childhood sex abuse is reason they do same sex behaviors.Any conduct can be learned and this includes sexual conduct. There are homosexuals and lesbians who say that childhood sex abuse (especially those who are victims of a gay priest) are reasons why they think they do same sex behaviors in adulthood. Had they not been repeatedly molested, would they have turned out straight instead of gay or lesbian? It doesn’t take an expert to know that sex abuse in youth can mess up the mind and cause people to behave in ways they normally wouldn’t. Of course, not all who are sexually abused in youth become gay in adulthood-but the risk is higher.

    A kid can become a mugger by living in high crime neighborhood, seeing muggings in childhood and learning this conduct. Yes, there are muggers who were not raised in high crime neighborhoods but still became muggers, but that does not rule out other causes. Many emphysema victims did not smoke and were not exposed to 2nd hand smoke and got emphysema due to bad genes but it would be dishonest to deny truth that if a person smokes, he or she is more likely to get emphysema.
