Jailed clerk gaining support in gay marriage fight; ‘This woman has done nothing wrong’

casey-kim-davisA colleague of the Kentucky county clerk imprisoned for refusing to issue marriage licenses is launching a high profile protest to draw attention to her fight, while the controversy over gay marriage has left the clerk’s home county in legal turmoil.

Zionica.com reported:

Casey Davis, who is the county clerk for Casey County, says he will not issue same-sex marriage licenses either.

The Casey County clerk is currently using his own vacation time to bike 400 miles from Pikeville to Paducah to protest the public persecution of Christians.


‘I’m trying to help a woman that does not deserve to go to jail,” Casey Davis said. “This woman has done nothing wrong,” he told Wave 3 before setting off.

As for the original Davis — Kim Davis of Rowan county — her attorneys are appealing her incarceration.

“This woman who hasn’t done any crime at all,” Matt Staver, one of Davis’s attorneys told Newsmax on Sunday. “She’s being held without bail for an indefinite period of time. In fact, one of the U.S. marshals when they were directed by the judge to take her into custody told her he had never arrested somebody who had not committed a crime.”

Since Davis’ incarceration, deputy Rowan county clerks have been issuing licenses — to both straight and same-sex couples. Staver has something to say about that, also.

Because Davis refused to authorize those licenses, he said that those licenses issued Friday are “not worth the paper they are written on,” according to Fox News, which reported:

Kentucky law requires marriage licenses be issued under the authority of the elected county clerk. Davis views issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples as a stamp of approval of something she believes is a sin. She has said she will not issue marriage licenses until the state legislature changes the law so the licenses can be issued under someone else’s authority.


Judge David Bunning said he didn’t know if the licenses issued Friday were valid or not, but ordered the deputy clerks to issue them anyway, Fox reported.
