Bigot Kim Davis Is Back In The News & She’s Already Pissing People Off (DETAILS)

-

Kim Davis, the county clerk for Rowan County, Kentucky, first made headlines two years ago when she refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples after the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage in 2015.

In July, a federal judge awarded $222,695 in legal fees to the attorneys of four couples who were denied marriage licenses by Davis.

Now that her legal troubles are over, Davis is back in the news again, this time for taking her anti-LGBT positions to Romania.

According to the Lexington Herald Leader, Davis is spending nine-days in Romania with Harry Mihet, the vice president of legal affairs for the Liberty Counsel, an anti-LGBT Christian ministry that the Southern Poverty Law Center has deemed a hate group, to encourage lawmakers to double down on the country’s ban on same-sex marriage.

Romania currently forbids same-sex marriage, and civil partnerships aren’t recognized. The country is also planning to hold a referendum to amend its constitution to define marriage strictly as a union that takes place between a man and a woman.

Mihet, a Romanian native, issued a press release on Tuesday praising Davis and saying he was glad to have her with him on this trip.

‘I am so glad for this amazing opportunity to finally introduce Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis personally to my Romanian people. Her story resonates loudly with them, and they are receiving her tearfully and very warmly, because they can still remember the not-so-long-ago days when they were themselves persecuted and imprisoned for their conscience.’

He added:

‘The freedom of conscience transcends national, cultural, religious and denominational lines, and Romanians are determined to prevent such injustice from ever happening again in their country.’

The release concluded by summarizing Davis and Mihet’s message to the Romanian people as follows:

‘Their message is simple and based upon the recent lessons learned in the United States: same-sex “marriage” and freedom of conscience are mutually exclusive, because those who promote the former have zero tolerance for the latter.’

The Liberty Counsel tweeted in favor of Davis’ latest endeavor on Tuesday morning.

The group’s post has not been particularly well-received, and Davis, in particular, is being heavily criticized online.
