Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis Goes Back to Work and Stands Her Ground … In VIDEO Says Marriage Licenses Being Issued Without Her Authority
County clerk of Rowan County, Kentucky Kim Davis returned to work Monday, saying she will not issue any marriage licenses that go against her religious beliefs. However, she left the door open for her deputies to continue to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, as long as those documents do not have Davis’ name or title on them. She will not step her deputy clerks from issuing same sex marriage licenses; however, Davis is stating that they are not valid.
Kim Davis, county clerk of Rowan County, Kentucky, returned to work Monday, saying she will not issue any marriage licenses that go against her religious beliefs — but she left the door open for her deputies to continue to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, as long as those documents do not have Davis’ name or title on them.
Davis acknowledged that she is not sure on the legality of licenses altered in such a way.
Davis spent five days behind bars this month for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses — something she is legally obligated to do under state and federal law.
Kentucky clerk Kim Davis says marriage licenses are being issued in Rowan County without her authority and she wants her name and title removed.
Choking back tears this morning at a news conference before her return to work, a defiant Davis said she is faced with a “seemingly impossible choice … my conscience or my freedom,” referring to her opposition to same-sex marriages.
She added: “I’m no hero.”
Despite her assertion that her deputies don’t have her authority to issue marriage licenses, Rowan County Deputy Clerk Brian Mason said he will continue issuing them today.
Davis also told reporters this morning that she wants the licenses to indicate that they are being issued under federal authority.
She returned to work today nearly one week after being released from jail for failing to issue marriage licenses over her religious objection to same-sex marriage.
On Friday, the United States Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in favor of Gay marriage …
A decision that should have been made by individual states was determined by the SCOTUS. Nine unelected individuals in black robes made social law and ruled in favor of Gay marriage with a 5-4 decision.
Personally, I could care less what one does in the confines of their relationships when it comes to whether one is gay or heterosexual, but please spare me the nonsense that “Love” won. Spare me the BS. What does love have to do with a pice of paper? There are plenty of individuals who are in relationships outside of wedlock who are not Gay who love each other. Anyone who thinks they need a piece of paper issued by a State to say they they have love in their relationship knows nothing what love is and only has an agenda. Note what was said above, the State issues the marriage license, not the federal government so please tell me where the SCOTUS even has standing to rule on this issue. Exactly what ever happened to the State’s 10th Amendment rights? Case in point, who do you get a marriage license from and what are the rules and guidelines that they are issued under, the federal government or the State you reside in?
The Politico has 10 key quotes from the Supreme Court’s gay marriage decision. All Americans, especially those who are today celebrating this SCOTUS ruling, because if you celebrate a ruling that has nothing to do with the Constitution, you don’t get to complain when a ruling goes against you for the same reason.
“If you are among the many Americans—of whatever sexual orientation—who favor expanding same-sex marriage, by all means celebrate today’s decision. Celebrate the achievement of a desired goal. Celebrate the opportunity for a new expression of commitment to a partner. Celebrate the availability of new benefits. But do not celebrate the Constitution. It had nothing to do with it.” – Chief Justice John Roberts, in his dissent.
So in other words, the very document that is the basis of the United States means nothing anymore and all that matters is how people feel, including individuals on the Supreme Court who have a social agenda.
Tammy Bruce Who is Gay Says on FOX & FRIENDS, Gay Liberals Have Turned into a Mob of Fascists and Bullies
WOW, TAMMY BRUCE SAYS GAY LIBERALS HAVE TURNED INTO A MOB OF FASCISTS AND BULLIES … PROBABLY THE MOST INTELLIGENT COMMENTS ON THE ISSUES AS I HAVE SEEN
Radio host and Fox News contributor Tammy Bruce, an openly gay women, spoke the truth on Fox & Friends when she said that LGBT people against turning into fascists. Her remarks were in repsonse to how the LGBT activists viciously and savagely went after Memories Pizza and its owners for their religious beliefs. Tammy Bruce said what everyone wanted to say, but coming from a gay person was much more powerful. Bruce blasted the LGBT community and said, “For you to turn into what we have been fighting against for generations … so that we can condemn people who are different and with whom we disagree, it is the antitheses of what every civil rights movement was about.”
She is 100% correct. Tammy Bruce also stated that Democrats are trying to use this frenzied, wolf-pack attack by gays for their own political advantage. She went on to say, “If there is any one in the world who should understand the vulnerability of being a minority, of being somebody that may be others don’t understand or relate to, the vulnerabilities of work and jobs and be able to live your lives as you see fit, IT’S THE GAY COMMUNITY.” Or so you would think. Will the LGBT take any heed to Tammy’s comments? Probably not.
The gay liberals have turned into bullies, when our work is to stop that kind of behavior
Fox News contributor and openly-gay woman Tammy Bruce warned LGBT people against turning into fascists while opposing the controversial Indiana law.
Bruce said LGBT people opposing people who support the Indiana law, like the pizzeria who won’t serve same-sex marriages, goes against everything the gay rights and civil rights movement stand for: respecting other people’s views and lifestyles.
“For you to turn into what we have been fighting against for generations…” Bruce began, adding “so that we can condemn people who are different and with whom we disagree, it is the antitheses of what every civil rights movement was about.”
Bruce then evoked fascism to caution LGBT people on the Indiana law issue: “We saw this with Chick-fil-A, everybody came to Chick-Fil-A’s defense when they were under attack by fascists, by bullies–the gay liberals have turned into bullies.”
Just like with Chick-Fil-A, the LGBT community better be careful here and not overplay their hand. With the initial mob attack on Chick-Fil-A back in 2012 and the massive support shown to the them, it would appear that the silent majority is also coming to the aid of little Memories Pizza.
Owners of Memories Pizza Express Their Freedom of Religion and the LGBT Activists & Cronies Have Become the Bullies that they Have Complained About for Years
THE HATEFUL GAY MOB: WHEN YOU BECOME THEY VERY EVIL THAT YOU HAVE PROTESTED AGAINST, YOU HAVE LOST YOUR WAY AND DON’T DESERVE ANYONE SUPPORT.
The story of Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Indiana is just the most recent example of just how intolerant, vicious and hateful the LGBT community has become lately. The state of Indiana passed a law protection religious rights with the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, a law that was very similar to the federal one and the law passed by 19 other states. However, the LGBT activists, their cronies and and all-too willing leftist MSM attacked and misrepresented the law as being anti-Gay. Caught in the middle of the controversy and in the eye of the storm was little known and unheard of Memories Pizza located in Walkerton, IN.
Crystal O’Conner was asked a so-called hypothetical question by a news reporter, which was probably more of a set up hit piece than a question, if they would not cater a gay wedding? Her answer was, if they came into their restaurant they would most certainly serve them food; however, because of their religious beliefs, they would not cater a gay wedding. The LGBT brown shirts and liberal MSM lost their collective minds.
A small town, family-owned pizzeria has become the latest target of an angry mob of modern-day fascists — hell-bent on silencing anyone who opposes gay marriage.
Kevin O’Connor and his daughter Crystal own Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Ind. — just a hop, skip and a jump southwest of South Bend.
Mr. O’Connor and his family have been forced into hiding and had to temporarily shut down their store after they told a local television reporter that they would not cater a gay wedding.
“If a gay couple came in and wanted us to provide pizzas for their wedding, we would have to say no,” Crystal told ABC 57 on Tuesday.
The backlash against Memories Pizza and its owners, Kevin O’Connor and his daughter Crystal, was immediate, swift and as vile as it gets. The anonymous cowards on social media made death threats and called Kevin and Crystal every name in the book. One not-so swift nut job actually threatened to burn their business down. Did we mention the individual who made this hateful comment, Jessica Dooley, is the softball and girls’ golf coach at Concord High School in Elkhart, Indiana. We should say was the coach was she has since been suspended. Personally, anyone who is this ignorant to have a criminal threat like this belongs no where around students. The police department conducted an investigation and forwarded the case to the St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office for possible charges.
“Who’s going to Walkerton, IN to burn down #memoriespizza with me?” Jessica Dooley asked in the tweet, which has since been deleted. “Agree with #FreedomOfReligionBill? ‘That’s a lifestyle they CHOOSE’ Ignorant.”
But the fix was in and the vile attacks against Memories Pizza was in. They became Public Enemy #1 of the LGBT Hit squad. Not ISIS or countries like Saudi Arabia who kill gays just for being gay, but Memories Pizza. Why, because a bully always picks on the little guy. The O’Conner’s were forced to close down their business because of the mob. Really, the owners of a business were forced to close their business for fear of their own safety. NICE JOB LGBT. Is this what is has come to? Where is the tolerance from the gay community? You mean everyone is supposed to not only tolerate but accept the LGBT? Maybe the LGBT might want to take some tolerances classes of their own.
The family business came under fierce assault by LGBT activists and their cronies — accusing them of being anti-gay bigots. Their Facebook pages were smeared with gay pornography. Their phones were overwhelmed by vulgar and profane threats.
What is sad is that the MOB mentality was allowed to act in this manner and the media fanned the flames. It was not too long ago when the gay community cried foul when the heterosexual mobs used to do the same to them. But of course its different now because the LGBT community is doing it. Sorry, there is a way to do something and a way not to. The idea that people are forced to accept what they do not believe is insane. Most people have a if that’s what you want to do and that’s your right, than so be it … but do not think that you get to infringe on my right with yours.
Unbelievable Disrespect … Obama Invited Gay Activists Pose for Pics Giving Ronald Reagan’s Portait the Finger in the White Hoouse
Just how unbelievably disrespectful could these people be … I guess this is what Gay Hope & Change looks like?
Invited Gay guests of President Barack Obama commemorated there visit to the White House by taking pics flipping off the portrait of President Ronald Reagan. Can some one explain to me how this is allowed to happen? Are there not individuals who monitor what guests are doing in the White House or are they just allowed to roam around freely? More to the point, have they no sense of decorum? I do not care who you are, gay, straight, white, black, brown or pink … taking a pic of you giving a former President the bird or making out, sticking your tongue down anothers throat just shows how disrespectful one truly is.

Last Friday, an attaché of important gay people from Philadelphia made a trip to Washington D.C. as invited guests of President Barack Obama for the White House’s first-ever gay pride reception. There, they danced to the sounds of a Marine Corps band; they dined on crab cakes and canapés; they hand-delivered letters from concerned citizens like this 18-year old who has had four people close to him gunned down, and noted rhyming raconteur CA Conrad; and some of them took advantage of photo opportunities to give the late President Ronald Reagan the middle finger.
More from the gay and Lesbian crowd that want acceptance. One might first ask before they get acceptance that they actually abide by some set of rules, rather than the fact that they think they are special and above the law and rules of proper conduct.
Additionally, Strauss posted Reagan’s memorable statement on LGBT rights from the 1980 campaign trail: “My criticism is that [the gay movement] isn’t just asking for civil rights; it’s asking for recognition and acceptance of an alternative lifestyle which I do not believe society can condone, nor can I.”
“Yeah, fuck Reagan,” reiterates Hart one week after the reception. “Ronald Reagan has blood on his hands. The man was in the White House as AIDS exploded, and he was happy to see plenty of gay men and queer people die. He was a murderous fool, and I have no problem saying so. Don’t invite me back. I don’t care.”
Comments from Rush Limbaugh:
UPDATE I: File this one under way too late and a dollar short, the Obama White House rebukes the the Gay guests that gave the middle finger to Reagan portrait.
The White House did not approve.
“While the White House does not control the conduct of guests at receptions, we certainly expect that all attendees conduct themselves in a respectful manner. Most all do,”
As stated by the Lonely Conservative, “How very classy. I guess this is just part and parcel with the new civil tone Obama has called for.” Imagine, just imagine if a white person did the same to Obama’s portrait, when he finally gets one, it would be deemed at “Hate Crime” by the MSM.
