King Weighs In On County Clerk’s Jailing
Date posted - September 9, 2015
Washington, DC — Republican Congressman Steve King says if the courts can command a Kentucky clerk to violate her religious beliefs and issue same-sex marriage licenses, then the courts can order same-sex marriage ceremonies at “any altar” in a church, synagogue or mosque.
Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who was found in contempt of court and jailed when she refused to issue a marriage license to a same-sex couple, was released from jail yesterday (Tuesday). Republican presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz were in Kentucky, holding a rally for Davis, when Davis walked on stage and spoke to the crowd.
Rosa Parks, an African American who was arrested for not giving up her bus seat to a white passenger, was a prominent figure in the Civil Rights movement. There are many scholarships, awards and events around the country that carry the Rosa Parks name. Many Rosa Parks Awards are given by N-Double-A-C-P chapters.
