Kim Davis, a Kentucky county clerk who has refused to issue marriage licenses since the U.S. Supreme Court legalized gay marriage, has been sent to jail for contempt of court.

U.S. District Judge David Bunning ordered the Rowan County Clerk to jail until she complies with his order to issue marriage licenses, the Associated Press reports.

Davis has said her Christian faith should exempt her from signing the marriage licenses. She has refused to issue any licenses at all in the two months since the Supreme Court ruling.

According to the AP, Davis said “thank you” before she was led out of the court room by a U.S. marshal. She was not handcuffed.

WOWK 13 reports that Davis’ deputy clerks were given 30 minutes to decide whether they will obey the court, or they will also be sent to jail.

I believe you are a great example how we should obey God them man. Keep your faith and be strong and He will give you Victory. Also we can see how corrupt and with no moral our GOVERNMENT are, may God forgive the SIN they do. Well the Bible says ” the in last day before my redeemer be here the world will be like Sodom and Gomorrah”.

why didnt they just put her in another position or fire her for not doing the job. arresting her & putting her in jail seems ridiculous & reeks of government overreach. scary that.

Another position !!! Great Idea !!! That’s what happens with everyone that can’t or won’t do their job. It’s called being fired!

Nobody considers the will of Zeus anymore.
