Kim Davis Says She 'Did Not Treat Anybody Unfairly' By Denying Same-Sex Marriage Licenses

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Jailed in 2015 for refusing to issue marriage licenses after gay weddings became legal, a Kentucky clerk running for re-election told voters on Tuesday she did not treat anyone unfairly ... “I did not treat anybody unfairly. I treated everybody equally because I quit issuing marriage licenses altogether,” Republican Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis said during a candidate forum in Morehead, Kentucky.

During Tuesday night’s forum, Davis appeared to still not accept that ruling. “I have had many people ask me, ‘Why didn’t you do your job? Why didn’t you do your job? Why didn’t you just quit?’ Well if you will read our Kentucky state statutes, they still say that marriage is between one man and one woman. That’s what we voted in,” Davis said.

Davis is running as a Republican in the Nov. 6th election, seeking a second four-year term to a job that pays her about $80,000 a year. She faces Elwood Caudill Jr., who has worked for the county ... for 21 years.

Caudill said Tuesday if elected he would treat everyone equally because he took an oath to “uphold the law of the land.”

1. Hasn't she been "married" at least three times?

What a vile hypocrite.

4. Davis has been married four times to three different men.

The first three marriages ended in divorce in 1994, 2006, and 2008.

Davis has two daughters from her first marriage and twins, a son and another daughter, who were born five months after her divorce from her first husband.

Her third husband is the biological father of the twins, who were adopted by her second husband, Joe Davis, who is also her fourth and current husband.

Davis says she experienced a religious awakening in 2011, following her mother-in-law's dying wish that she attend church.
Since then Davis has identified herself as a Christian, belonging to the Apostolic Pentecostal movement,
which favors what they describe as a literal interpretation of the Bible.

6. By "unfairly", Kim Davis meant that she

denied marriage licenses to ALL GLBTQ, not some of them.

7. IIRC she stopped issuing ANY marriage licenses to anyone ... which, I suppose, is slightly less evil

... although ultimately I don't think she had any choice in the matter.

If I were her opponent, I would rip her a new one in my ads.

"Davis, who has been married not once, not twice, not three times ... but FOUR TIMES ... with children by each of the men ... including twins that were born to a later husband only 5 MONTHS after she was divorced from the previous one ... says that the tenets of her cult-like religion ... which she did not 'find' until she was in her (30's? 40's? whatever it was) ... entitles her to decide for citizens of Kentucky ... who they are allowed to Marry, contrary to the Law of our Land!?! Who does Kim Davis think she is?"

Or something along those lines. I would friggin' LET HER HAVE IT in my ads as her opponent, man ... it would be scorched earth.

9. Hey, Kim!

Your moment of "fame" ended a long time ago.

Pro Tip: You lost!

Go away.

10. Kim Davis is a thief - taking pay for a job she refused to do.

Jesus said some significant things about divorce and adultery for second marriages.

Trump, Reagan, Gingrich, Guliani?

12. "She did not treat anybody unfairly"

No, she broke the law AND refused to do the job for which she was being paid. And another thing, Kim. FEDERAL LAW trumps State law. EVERY TIME. If you were really astute at your job, you'd know that to be true.

Now, she wants another crack at abusing taxpayer money for her religious piety. Oh, please, fuck me blind.

13. Okay, triggered libs, let me man 'splain for ya.

See? Kim pwayed. Oh, so fervently she pwayed away all the guilt of her transgressions before Jeebus and actively scapegoated those evil "others" in the limelight of some Reverend Goofball and the entire nation.
See? She's above the caste-like ranking of all us LGBT sinners along with a childish giggle that she upset some peaceful consortium that doesn't fit her nuts and bolts full understanding of human sexuality. The big Beelzebub CROSS out in front of her will soon send one of us unclean individuals bathing in our own blood, all to the tune of screeds from her ilk. See? I wan't one of those ugly pairs of glasses she wears for the Halloween drag show. Oops, fell out of character there.
I can't... go on with that, LOL.
