Who cares if he has the authority? Let him make the change so that idiot woman and all of her worshippers can feel better about themselves. Anything to shut the bitch up – and anyone else like her.
Just weeks after winning his election, Kentucky Republican Gov. Matt Bevin fulfilled a campaign promise on Tuesday to accommodate county clerks who hold a religious objection to same-sex couples marrying — a cause elevated to national attention by Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis.
But critics said Bevin has overstepped his authority as governor.
At the heart of the dispute is Davis, who was sued in federal court for refusing to issue marriage licenses after the Supreme Court’s ruling for marriage equality. Davis contended that issuing licenses to same-sex couples violated her religious freedom, because Kentucky state law mandates that the name of elected county clerks appear on the licenses — which Davis argued was a form of endorsement of those marriages.
