Rowan County, Kentucky clerk Kim Davis was invited to watch President Barrack Obama's last State of the Union address in Washington D.C. on Jan 12. by Republican Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, but wasn't happy with much of what she heard (video below).
Journalist Luke Russert tweeted a video of himself asking Davis what she thought about Obama's speech, and she replied, "It was a speech."
Davis later told EWTN that she agreed with Obama's call to help less fortunate people, notes RightWingWatch.org, but moments later said:
He had made the statement that everybody was free to marry who they love, and, of course, that’s the stand that I stood against. And it was not, for me, it never was a gay or a lesbian issue. It was about standing up for the word of the God and as God had defined marriage from the very beginning as between one man and one woman. And that’s what I stood for.
Davis refused to issue marriage licenses to gay people for months in 2015, and would not allow her deputy clerks to do so either.
Davis also told EWTN: “One of the things that he focused on was that we should not discriminate against Muslims or persecute them, but he never once said anything about the people of the Christian faith who are being so tried and tested and being mashed down, literally, with his agenda."
