Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis Mocked by Billboard in Her Hometown
Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis is going back to work on Monday, but some in her hometown aren’t ecstatic, and they’re not shy about letting the clerk know how they feel.
Planting Peace, a nonprofit, sponsored a billboard in Rowan County, the Kentucky county Davis works in. The billboard defends gay rights and criticizes Davis’s decision to not issue same-sex couples marriage licenses—a decision that led to Davis being held in jail for five days.
“Dear Kim Davis, the fact that you can’t sell your daughter for three goats and a cow means we’ve already redefined marriage,” the billboard says.
The message refers to a Bible scripture in Exodus that suggests women can be sold into a marriage.
