Turns out that bigotry is expensive.

READ ORIGINAL STORY HERE


Kim Davis at a press conference following her release from jail.


A federal judge has ruled that anti-LGBTQ+ activist Kim Davis must pay $260,000 in legal fees to a same-sex couple that she infamously denied a marriage license to in 2015. This amount is in addition to the $100,000 award she was ordered to pay the couple last September.


Davis’s attorneys said that the fees sought by the couple’s attorneys were “excessive,” according to The Guardian. But U.S. district judge David L. Bunning said that she must pay anyway since the male same-sex couple won their discrimination lawsuit against her last year. Her lawyers have pledged to appeal both of the judge’s decisions in favor of the gay couple.


The right-wing law group defending the KY county clerk thinks the Supreme Court could use a lawsuit against her to overturn same-sex marriage.

Davis, a conservative Christian who has been married four times, refused to provide marriage licenses to gay couples in 2015 after the U.S. Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage. Davis told the couple in question that she was acting “under God’s authority” when she refused to issue the license because she believes marriage is only between a man and a woman.


in 2022, Bunning ruled that Davis “cannot use her own constitutional rights [to religious freedom] as a shield to violate the constitutional rights of others while performing her duties as an elected official.”

Davis or someone in her office denied marriage licenses multiple times to at least two same-sex couples. Eventually, the couples received them from a deputy clerk while Davis was jailed for five days for contempt of court. She was released when her staff issued the licenses on her behalf with Davis’ name removed from the documents. Shortly thereafter, Kentucky’s state legislature passed a law removing county clerks’ names from state marriage licenses altogether.


Nevertheless, at least one couple sued Davis for the “mental anguish, emotional distress, humiliation, and reputation damages” that she allegedly caused.


Initially, then-Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin (R) praised Davis as “an inspiration… to the children of America,” but when the court said the state government would have to pay for her legal fees, Bevin appealed to get Davis to pay the fees instead.


Davis — who was pregnant by her third husband while still married to her first — was represented by the anti-LGBTQ Liberty Counsel, a Southern Poverty Law Center (SLPC) designated hate group that opposes any expansion of LGBTQ+ civil rights.


The Liberty Counsel has claimed that LGBTQ+ “pedophiles” seek to “indoctrinate” kids and society at large to embrace and reward “perversion” and “harmful sexual behavior.” The group says same-sex marriage causes disease and destroys “our very social fabric.” It also calls homosexuals “immoral” and “unnatural,” the SLPC noted.

JB RESPONDS:-


SOME TIMES we read some good news and this is one of those stories. using your religious beliefs to deny another of service is an appalling abuse of your beliefs to damn another human being and that - my dears - is UNENLIGHTENED AND UNCHRISTIAN - well - actually - it's just fucking obnoxious.


When you do something nice and people say ' That's the Christian way '-

Or when you do something bad and they say ' That's not very Christian of you,'

what they are saying is that only the Christians know the difference between good and bad and that all others are fake.


Not at all.


Being good or bad is the human way of behaving and religion has absolutely nothing to do with being a good person or not as there are many MANY murderous Christians around just as there are many good people who believe in nothing at all.

Christians have mass slaughtered / mass murdered and committed genocide and all in the name of religion, and this bullshit is just an excuse to murder, rape and dominate those who live by a different set of rules and the Christian Church has the most amount of blood on its hands throughout history than any other religion. PERIOD.


Christians assume they are the only true religion.

Funny, because the Jews say the same thing.

Funny, as Muslims say the same thing.

Funny because they all pray to the exact same God.

Funny also because not a single word about God can actually be proven -while mass murdering on His / Her behalf - OOPS CORRECTION - NOT on God's behalf but mankind - not God - trying to bully and dominate others and that unenlightened attitude causes much turmoil, mass murder and chaos within any religion.


Religions of the world have a lot to answer for and God would be ashamed - ABSOLUTELY ASHAMED, the amount of horror and murderous acts done in His / Her name that was NEVER done truly in God's name but in mans name trying to make a name for themselves and conquer the world.


IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT CORRUPT FUCKED UP MEN AND THEIR PENIS.

MEN AND THEIR BULLY WAYS.

MEN AND THEIR INSECURITIES AROUND WOMEN.

MEN AND THEIR FEAR OF SEXUALITY AND OF ANYTHING DIFFERENT.
