    Whitley County Kentucky Clerk Has Resumed Issuing Marriage Licences - But Not To Same-Sex Couples


    The attention of the country has been focused on Rowan County, Kentucky, clerk Kim Davis as she defies the orders of a federal judge in the name of "religious freedom," but she is not the only clerk acting up in Kentucky. Casey Davis, clerk of Casey County and Kay Schwartz, clerk of Whitley County, also stopped issuing all marriage licenses after the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage in June.



    ...

    Last Friday, Whitley County Clerk Kay Schwartz (photo right) announced her office will once again begin issuing marriage licenses - but to heterosexual couples only. Ms. Schwartz would not provide any further details to WFPL, requesting of the reporter “don’t stir this, please.”

    Yeah. "I'm gonna totally disregard the US Supreme Court. But don't stir this, please. Because I'm entitled."

    Practical problem is, no gay person in that county wants to get a marriage license. Is that because there are no gays living there? Or because coming out gay is dangerous to your health in some counties of Kentucky?

    Having your home firebombed, your car vandalized, losing your jobs (which is legal there), is not an attractive proposition. All things that have happened to gays in similar situations.

    But maybe some older retired gay couple will wanna risk it, and then this'll go to the courts. Oddly, it's often the lesbians who have more balls than the gay men. We'll see.

    So not only can people pick and choose what scriptures we want to follow and not follow, people can choose the laws they want to follow and ignore too eh? Interesting theme. lol.
