Federal Judge Denies Latest Kim Davis Request
« on: September 23, 2015, 09:49:27 pm »
"A federal judge on Wednesday denied Kim Davis a stay of his order requiring her office to issue marriage licenses to all eligible couples who want one, the latest setback for the Kentucky county clerk who went to jail rather than issue licenses to gay couples."

Read the Article

She wanted his ruling to only apply to the the couples who sued so she could deny marriage licenses to other couples.

I'm wondering when it's going to get interesting.  Apparently she has a case under state law to get the marriage license form law changed.  The Federal judge can't order the change, or grant it apparently.

This would require her lawyers to want to resolve the case in a way that works for her and for the people she is supposed to serve. That's not what they seem to want. As far as I can tell this is all about raising money for the parent organization and maybe if they get really lucky finding some court that will (however briefly) enforce their religion's ban on gay marriage on people not of their religion. To raise that money, the case has to go on and on and on. Going to state court, getting a judge to order the form changed to accommodate her religious issues under state law would accomplish none of their goals.
