Christopher Ciccone, Madonna's openly
gay brother, has come out in support of Kentucky clerk Kim Davis.
Davis served five days in jail for
refusing to comply with a federal judge's ruling ordering her to
issue marriage licenses to all qualified couples. Davis has said
marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples was a “heaven or hell”
decision for her.
Davis won't say whether she'll abide by order in gay marriage
According to The
Hollywood Reporter, Ciccone lent Davis his support over the
weekend in a Facebook post.
Davis, Ciccone wrote, deserves as much
support as a Muslim woman “who insisted on covering her face and
refused not only gay marriage licenses, but divorce, accusations of
rape and driving a car without your man's approval.”
“Once again, the gay community feels
the need to be sore winners,” he added.
“Is it so difficult to allow this
women [sic] her religion? Or must we destroy her in order for her to
betray her faith. No matter how we judge, it's truth. The rights we
have all fought for, mean nothing, if we deny her hers.”
