Listen up, all. Kim Davis has more to say.
The county clerk from Kentucky who went to jail rather than issue marriage licenses to gay couples said the licenses being granted by her staff are invalid, according to an interview that aired on Tuesday.
"I can't put my name on a license that doesn't represent what God ordained what marriage to be," Davis said in a television interview with ABC News, taped on Monday.
"They're not valid in God's eyes, for one," she said of licenses her staff has begun issuing. "I have given no authority to write a marriage license. They did not have my permission, they did not have my authorization."
Something tells us that same-sex couples applying for marriage licenses aren't looking for validity in God's eyes, just the state's.
If Davis' interview comes off a little petulant and self-righteous, there's reason for that. Though she's accused of interfering with the marriage license forms, Davis can't stop what's going on around her. Couples are receiving their licenses from her office despite her best efforts, and for someone who thrives on control as much as this county clerk seems to, that can't feel great. But she'll have to excuse us for not shedding any tears for her struggles.
