Kim Davis has returned to work as a county clerk after serving time in jail for refusing to obey a court order to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples. Here is how they worked things out: She will not issue the marriage licenses, but her deputies will. She will not sign them and her name will not appear on the documents. Rather, they will contain the notation that they were issued under the order of U.S. District Judge David Bunning.
Is this a good solution, or does it just set up technicalities that can assuage a conscience while ignoring the larger issue? If it is a good solution, can it be a model for other religious liberty cases?
Meanwhile, other officials from other states are following Mrs. Davis’s example in refusing to be complicit in gay marriages.
P.S.: You also need to read this about Kim Davis, in light of all of the mockery for her “hypocrisy” for what she did before she converted to Christianity a few years ago.
