In Rowan County Kentucky, county clerk of courts Kim Davis is facing some backlash after not issuing license to same-sex couples. She is not alone however, many former or current government employees argue that government employees should not be required to recognize same-sex marriage because it goes against their religious beliefs.
Ms. Davis garnered national attention Tuesday when she ignored court rulings and denied marriages licenses to gay couples. Ms. Davis’s lawyer is part of a group called the Liberty Counsel. The Liberty Counsel was founded by Mr. Staver in 1989. This counsel includes 10 lawyers who have had many of cases over the years fighting for the evangelical christians. Same-sex marriage has been a major issue since the rule that same-sex marriage is legal in all 50 states. They believe that homosexuality is “against God’s will” and “rooted in fractured emotions.”
