Remember Kim Davis, “the elected County Clerk in Kentucky who denied a gay couple a marriage license, citing her religious beliefs and going against her conscience as the reasons she could not comply with the request,” Truth and Action reported on months back? She is again in the news as there is now a law, in Kentucky that will protect her rights.
Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin signed a bill bringing “statutory finality” to the marriage license battle in the state. Making national headlines, Rowan County Clerk, Kim Davis, would not issue a marriage license to a same-sex couple which had to have her name on it, due to her religious belief in traditional marriage.
This new bill alters the marriage licenses so that they do not include the county clerk’s name and also provides a place to mark whether they are a groom, bride or spouse.
