About 30 people on Monday staged a
protest outside the Fort Thomas home of the federal judge who jailed
Kentucky clerk Kim Davis.
Davis, the elected clerk of Rowan
County, was jailed on Thursday after a judge found her in contempt
for failing to comply with his ruling ordering her to issue marriage
licenses to all qualified couples. Davis, an Apostolic Christian,
has said that issuing marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples
would be a violation of her conscience.
The day after Davis was jailed, deputy
clerks at her office began issuing marriage licenses to gay couples.
On Sunday, she filed an appeal of the judge's order.
“The Kentucky Constitution has never
been altered in any way,” the Rev. Flip Benham, head of the
Concord, North Carolina-based Operation Save America, told the AP.
“She is guilty of keeping the law, and the judge, David Bunning,
has found her in contempt of his court. We are holding Judge Bunning
in contempt of almighty God.”
A flyer handed out at the protest asked
people to pray for Judge David Bunning to repent.
“Bunning has committed a grievous
crime,” the flyer states. “He has intentionally imprisoned an
innocent woman without bail for her Christian beliefs.”
Republican presidential candidate Mike
Huckabee is expected to meet privately with Davis on Tuesday.
