Kim Davis Jailed For Her Faith (Liberty Counsel)

Today, U.S. District Court Judge David Bunning ordered Rowan County, Kentucky, County Clerk Kim Davis to be taken into custody by federal marshals and to remain in jail until she agrees to issue licenses for same-sex “marriage” bearing her name. The plaintiffs did not even request incarceration, but Judge Bunning said that financial fines were not enough and ordered her to jail.

Everyone is stunned at this development. Kim Davis’ First Amendment-protected religious liberties and right of conscience have been trampled under foot.  Kim Davis is being treated as a criminal because she cannot violate her conscience.

Today’s events will escalate the national debate to a new level. This is not the kind of America the Founders envisioned or that most Americans want.

We need “all hands on deck!”

This battle is far from over, but we need your help!

Liberty Counsel’s team of attorneys is pursuing all legal means to find solutions to the problems created for Kim and other public servants nationwide when five unelected lawyers serving on the Supreme Court willfully imposed same-sex “marriage” on over 320 million Americans through an unjust ruling. Now an arrest order by Judge Bunning has exacerbated the problem.

Prior to her court appearance, Kim told Decision Magazine

“I have weighed the cost….  But it is through God and His grace and strength that I stand, that I can have a smile on my face.

Those licenses leave my office through my authority,” she said. “I cannot be party to that. I just can’t. … If the Word of God isn’t worth fighting for, I don’t know anything that is.

We serve a living God who is alive and on the throne,” she said. “He knows exactly where I am, and I know that His hand is upon me and upon His people. He is in full control.”

Kim Davis is a woman of strong faith. She never sought to be in this position. She would rather not be in this predicament. But here she is. All she asks is to be true to God and her conscience. And the tragedy is that there are simple ways to accommodate her convictions. Just remove her name from the marriage licenses. That’s all she has asked from the beginning. 

This is a developing situation, so be sure to watch for our further updates on this in the days ahead. Thank you for taking action with us today.

God bless you,
