Thousands Rally in Support of Kentucky Clerk and Religious Liberty


On Saturday, thousands rallied at the Kentucky Capitol in support of Kim Davis and other Kentucky clerks who are standing on their deeply held religious beliefs and refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses.

While the Lexington Herald-Leader reported the crowd at 2,500, others in attendance said the crowd was at least 7,000 based on a conservative estimate. One even estimated the crowd at 10,000.

The following is an Amendment to Kentucky’s constitution:

Davis did not abandon her constitutional rights of conscience and free exercise of religion when she took office. The laws of the United States and Kentucky she swore to uphold include the laws that protect those very rights of conscience for all individuals, including clerks.

The U.S. and Kentucky Constitutions, and particularly Kentucky’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act, require the accommodation of public officials’ sincerely held religious beliefs.

Government shall not substantially burden a person’s freedom of religion. The right to act or refuse to act in a manner motivated by a sincerely held religious belief may not be substantially burdened unless the government proves by clear and convincing evidence that it has a compelling governmental interest in infringing the specific act or refusal to act and has used the least restrictive means to further that interest. A “burden” shall include indirect burdens such as withholding benefits, assessing penalties, or an exclusion from programs or access to facilities.
