Ky. Clerk Kim Davis Won’t Block Licenses, but Won’t Issue Them

posted on September 14, 2015

At USA Today, Mike Wynn reports, “Kim Davis, the embattled Kentucky county clerk, at the center of the dispute over gay marriage and religious liberty, appeared to back down from the threat of more jail time Monday, saying while she still refuses to authorize marriage licenses, she will not interfere with a deputy clerk who began providing them more than a week ago.” Before returning to work, Davis spoke with media, asking that state legislators find a way to accommodate her religious beliefs. “I don’t want to have this conflict. I don’t want to be in the spotlight. And I certainly don’t want to be a whipping post,” Davis said. “I am no hero. I’m just a person who has been transformed by the grace of God.”
