Man, Kim Davis is throwing everything including the kitchen sink at the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals. Yesterday it was “I want to deny marriage licenses to everybody!” And before the day was even over they argued that since the people who sued Davis had gotten marriage licenses then there was no legal burden for [Read More…]
Kim Davis to 6th Circuit: the couples who sued me got their licenses so I don’t have to give them to other gay couples.

Fayetteville holds another vote for ordinance that protects LGBT citizens. This time the good guys won.

In my earlier post about Kim Davis speaking at Huckabee’s rally, I wrote: “she comes out to Eye of the Tiger, the anthem to Rocky III (and which I doubt was used with permission in this case).” Boy, can I call ’em or what? For his part, Survivor founding member and “Eye of the Tiger” [Read More…]

Anyway, the Liberty Counsel’s new fund-raising vehicle press release is precisely what you’d expect: Today, Judge Bunning issued an order to release Kim Davis from custody. Judge Bunning issued [Read More…]
