PETITION: Make KY Clerk Kim Davis Pay For The Pain & Suffering Her Bigotry Has Caused

petition

 

Barring any action from the US Supreme Court acts on her stay, Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis must begin issuing marriage licenses to all qualified couples by the end of today’s business day.

Weather she will or won’t nobody knows.

What we do know that many gay and lesbian couples were harmed by her bigotry and now many ordinary citizens are demanding that Davis be held personally liable for the legal costs associated with her battle against same-sex marriage especially now that Davis’ latest bid in her doomed case is to take it to the Supreme Court.

A Change.org petition to Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear, has been started demanding that county clerk Kim Davis be held personally liable for the legal costs associated with her battle against same-sex marriage.

From the petition:

Kim Davis is the Rowan county, KY court clerk who continues to defy the law by refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples based on her “Christian faith”. She has been ordered to perform the duties of her elected position and issue the licenses by not only the Governor, but also District Judge David Bunning. Yet, she continues to defy the law. On August 26th, the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals issued a ruling, denying her appeal and telling her to do her job. Regardless, she continues to defy the courts, and now wants to take her case to the U.S. Supreme Court. Someone, most likely the taxpayers of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, will have to pay her legal fees. It’s time to stand up and say no, we refuse to pay her legal fees. She should have to pay EVERY penny of her own legal bills. It’s time to stand up and send her a message. Tell Governor Beshear, the KY House of Representatives, and the KY Senate, that WE refuse to pay her bill!

While both Kim Davis and the Liberty Counsel WANT her to be fined or jailed so that will be the icing on their martyrdom cake. But I say so what!  They will find something, ANYTHING to use for martyrdom one way or another. They have done so before and will do do again.

Kim Davis must be made an example of as to stop this kind of behavior dead in its tracks.

So I say sign the petition and lets teach everyone very important lesson. That bigotry and hate will not be allowed to hide behind “religion” any longer.
