When you raise your hand and take your Oath of Office, you are making a solemn promise to defend the United States Constitution and the constitution of the state or commonwealth whose people you serve.
In Kentucky, one public official has blatantly and wantonly decided to disregard her Oath of Office. For that, she should resign.
As a true public official, one should know that the job is about those you serve, and it’s not about you. Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis doesn’t seem to understand this. Despite being ordered to issue marriage licenses to couples in accordance with federal law, Davis still refuses to issue same gender couples marriage licenses. She’s doing so because she says it violates her own moral view of what’s wrong and what’s right by her religion.
Her religion, however, isn’t the determining factor here. Again, she raised her hand and took an oath. Kim Davis’ religious views should be secondary to doing her job as the Clerk of Rowan County. The Clerk of Rowan County has been ordered by the Supreme Court of the United States to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples. Still, she defies the court’s order.
It's one person (Kim Davis) putting her rights over and ahead of everyone else, and it’s wrong. The fact that she's a fellow Democrat makes it even more shameful.
