The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday agreed to vacate a lower court’s injunctions against Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis and dismiss her pending appeals, giving her a clear victory in a fight over same-sex “marriage.”
“We celebrate this final victory for Kim Davis,” said Mat Staver, chairman of Liberty Counsel, which fought the legal battle on Davis’ behalf.
“We asked the federal court of appeals to set aside the lower court injunctions against Kim Davis. The ACLU objected and today the court sided with Kim Davis. The injunctions are gone and Kim Davis received the accommodation that she requested. County clerks are no longer forced to compromise their religious liberty and conscience rights,” said Staver.
The fight erupted following the U.S. Supreme Court’s creation of same-sex “marriage” a year ago. That ruling was by the slimmest of margins – 5-4 – and included two judges, Elena Kagan and Ruth Ginsburg, who had publicly advocated for same-sex “marriage” while the case was pending, then refused to remove themselves from the decision-making process when asked to do so.
Without their votes, the same-sex “marriage” vote would have failed.
“Outlasting the Gay Revolution” spells out eight principles to help Americans with conservative moral values counter attacks on our freedoms of religion, speech and conscience by homosexual activists.
After the mandate, local officials across the nation faced various orders to issue marriage licenses to same-sex duos, and Davis, the Rowan County clerk in Kentucky, stopped issuing any licenses so all comers would be treated alike.
