Dinowitz Says Kentucky County Clerk Should Quit

This week, Kentucky’s Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis was held in contempt of federal court and jailed for her refusal to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. In response, Bronx assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz released a statement urging Ms. Davis to either obey the law or quit her post.

“I applaud Judge David L. Bunning of the United States District Court in Kentucky for his decision to hold Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis in contempt of court for refusing to issue same-sex couples marriage licenses. 

If Ms. Davis feels that her religious beliefs conflict with the rights granted to individuals by the government she works for, she should resign her government job,” wrote Dinowitz.

On Saturday, Ms. Davis released a handwritten ‘Letter from a Carter County Jail,’ wherein she compared herself to black civil rights icon “Rose (sic) Parks.” In her letter, Davis wrote that there is a war on Christians who obey their faith. She compared her struggle to that of Christian martyrs, including her Lord Jesus Christ. She ends by thanking GOP presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz for courageously standing in support of her.

In a Saturday tweet, Ms. Davis references civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with her ‘Letter From A Carter County Jail’ and the hashtag, #MLKim.
