SCOTUS Rules Against County Clerk, Forces Her to Do THIS

The moment of truth is quickly approaching for a Rowan County Court Clerk that has stood her ground and refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples despite the recent SCOTUS ruling on the matter.

Last week, we reported a county clerk who refused to grant same-sex marriage licenses based on her religious faith. Kentucky patriots rallied behind her in a true test of support. Since the SCOTUS ruling, clerk Kim Davis has repeatedly turned away same-sex couples seeking licenses rather than defy her faith. Tuesday, Davis will have to make the life-altering decision to either face fines and possible imprisonment or begin issuing licenses against her faith.

Davis has showed extraordinary courage throughout the duration of this battle and according to the statement released by her legal counsel, “She’ll report to work tomorrow, and face whatever she has to face.” Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel, the law firm representing Davis has stated the following regarding the seemingly impossible crossroad she must face:

“Kim Davis is devoted to Jesus Christ and the people of Rowan County, whom she has served faithfully as County Clerk for nearly thirty years. Throughout history the courts have accommodated people’s deeply held religious beliefs. I see no reason why this case should be any different.”

Staver added that “She’s going to have to think and pray about her decision overnight. She certainly understands the consequences either way.”

What would you tell her to do? What type of advice can you give her at this time? Start issuing the licenses to avoid jail time? Deny your faith? Share your thoughts below in our comment section on this provocative story.
