Kentucky’s Kim Davis, still fighting against gay marriage, loses another legal round

She may have faded from the spotlight in the past month, but Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis has not given up her legal fight to be excluded from having to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

The legal fight continues to be unsuccessful.

On Thursday (5 November), the Sixth Circuit US Court of Appeals denied her latest request for a reprieve on issuing licenses, according to the Associated Press.

This is the latest in a string of legal setbacks for the Kentucky clerk who spent six days in jail in September for defying a federal judge’s order that she allow licenses to be issued. She objects based on religious beliefs.

The same judge had ruled in favor of four gay couples who sued Davis last summer for refusing to grant them marriage licenses.

The spotlight on Davis burned brightest in late September when she claimed to have had a private meeting with Pope Francis during his high-profile visit to the US. She claimed the pontiff thanked her for her ‘courage’ and said that she should be ‘proud’ for what she is doing and standing for.

In a rare move, The Vatican publicly distance itself from Davis following ferocious backlash. They characterized Davis as one of a dozen persons who had been invited by the Nunciature to greet Pope Francis as he prepared to leave Washington for New York City.

Since then, Davis has kept a somewhat lower profile.
