Kim Davis, Kentucky county clerk, to be released from prison

Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis has been released from jail as of Tuesday, September 8.

Judge David L. Bunning of the Federal District Court has released Kim Davis from jail, stating that her office was “fulfilling its obligation to issue marriage licenses to all legally eligible couples.”

In his two-page order, Bunning clarifies that Davis “shall not interfere in any way, directly or indirectly, with the efforts of her deputy clerks to issue marriage licenses to all legally eligible couples.” If Davis chooses to interfere in any way, she will be in violation of the release and will find herself back in jail with new charges against her.

Since her incarceration, Davis’ deputies have been processing marriage licenses for all legally eligible couples.

Davis was initially jailed following her refusal to grant same-sex marriage licenses.

Her refusal was the result of personal beliefs as an Apostolic Christian. Despite the legal obligations of her position, Davis refused to adhere to the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide.

Davis’ refusal to grant licenses and her incarceration have both rekindled the dwindling conservative concerns of what same-sex marriage has brought to America. Conservative viewpoints worry the presence of same-sex marriages are leading to the corrosion of religious liberty.

The concerns for religious rights have grown to such heights that Republican presidential candidates Ted Cruz and Mike Huckabee were planning to join the rally outside the courthouse to support Davis’ stand.

Mathew D. Staver, one of Davis’ lawyers, said, “This is not a political campaign, and I don’t want it to be and neither would Kim. This is an event to honor God. It’s an event to stand with Kim and ask for Kim to be free.”

Davis has been escalated to the status of a hero to Christian conservatives who oppose same-sex marriages. There have been several officials nationwide who have taken similar stances, but Davis’ refusal to relent has resulted in the most attention.

On Friday, September 4, the Rowan County clerk’s office ignored the protesters and journalists to issue marriage licenses to six same-sex and two opposite sex couples.
