Kim Davis, Kentucky’s Lawless County Clerk, Brings Bigotry to Romania

Kim Davis, at the time of her 2015 booking for defying a court order to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

Romania is set to vote on a referendum to ban same-sex marriage, drawing American anti-gay forces to help push its likely passage of it. B

rian Brown of the National Organization for Marriage, unsuccessful in stopping marriage equality in the US, has been over there. And now Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who went to court for the right not to issue licenses to gay couples, is on a nine-day tour, sponsored by Liberty Counsel, the right-wing, anti-LGBTQ legal group.

Liberty Counsel issued a release saying that “same-sex ‘marriage’ and freedom of conscience are mutually exclusive, because those who promote the former have zero tolerance for the latter.”

Note the scare quotes around the word marriage.
