Anti-gay clerk fails again in court, other anti-gay clerk says he will die fighting marriage equality

Kim Davis loses again

Word has come down that anti-gay Rowan County Kentucky clerk Kim Davis has lost another round in her refusal to give marriage licenses to gay couples.:

According to the AP:

A federal appeals court has upheld a ruling ordering a Kentucky county clerk to issue marriage licenses to gay couples.
Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis objects to issuing same-sex marriage licenses for religious reasons. She stopped issuing marriage licenses the day after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned state bans on same-sex marriage.
Two gay couples and two straight couples sued her. A U.S. district judge ordered Davis to issue the marriage licenses, but later delayed his order so that Davis could have time to appeal to the 6th circuit. Wednesday, the appeals court denied Davis' request for a stay.
An attorney for Davis said he was disappointed in the ruling and that Davis could appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. He said he did not know how Davis would react to the ruling.

I know how she is going to react. She is probably sewing her martyr dress. She has start doing her complete job on Monday and I have a feeling girlfriend won't do it.

Casey Davis (no relation) .
Meanwhile, another Kentucky clerk, Casey County clerk Casey Davis (no relation to Kim) just went full fledged drama queen over his refusal to give out marriage licenses to gay couples.

According to Right Wing Watch:

On Monday, Casey County Clerk Casey Davis (no relation) appeared on Huntington, West Virginia’s “The Tom Roten Morning Show” to discuss how he similarly plans to defy the courts if ordered to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples … even to the point of death.

Please ignore your eagerness to make fun of the man's accent. Just be spellbound at his ignorance.

No one fought and died for you to refuse to do your job, my friend. And for God's sakes, NO ONE wants you to lose your life over this matter.

Davis (the Mr.) illustrates the truth about this present so-called idea of religious liberty. Without any prodding, he is already channeling Joan of Arc, Anne Boleyn, all of the Hugenots and various martyrs throughout history.

All gay couples want is for him and Ms. Davis to abide by our LAWFUL right be married or step aside so that someone else can do it.

So PLEASE stop with the phony histronics and do the right thing. It's not about you clerks. It's about US, the gay folks who fought and won the right to marry fair and square.

Hard to believe that these people can hold so much perceived power over the law, is there some reason the US doesn't join many other countries and simply do all this stuff online?

In my book - you deny a court ruling and you are in contempt of court and should serve time in a federal prison.

No need to go that far. We can go for the good old solution for every other job ever. You don't do your job, you are fired.

Again, while these people richly DESERVE to be fired, in KY the Clerk is an elected position. Thus, they can't be fired, they must be recalled (or who knows, maybe there is some other procedure, but it is not a simple matter of "you're fired!"
