Kim Davis eats the national LGBT news

Kim Davis

Kim Davis, a backwater Kentucky county clerk has become an all consuming national figure as she defies the Supreme Court of the United States. She is still refusing service to gay couples. If she wants martyrdom I suspect that her desires will be fulfilled after a hearing before US District Court Judge David L. Bunning tomorrow. Judges don't like to be disobeyed.

This is really very simple. Ms. Davis is free to believe what she wants to believe. As a public servant she is required to either do her job or resign. That said, Davis is probably going to continue to be recalcitrant and refuse to make the only choice available to her.

The cynical lawyers at Liberty Counsel (an SPLC designated hate group) know exactly what is going to happen tomorrow morning with one exception. They do not know if any of them are going to be sanctioned for advising their client to disobey an order of the court. That aside they have already crafted a response that they think will generate the most in donations. Ms. Davis' plight will be secondary.

Tomorrow we will learn how many of Ms. Davis' 15 minutes have been consumed. Once every qualified couple is receiving a marriage license, attention to Ms. Davis will wane. She will have accomplished nothing.
