Same-sex 'marriage' trial set to open in federal court

The fight over same-sex "marriage," which the then-leftist Supreme Court created for America several years ago in a decision criticized as being "untethered" to the Constitution, is far from over.

WND previously reported that there's little doubt it eventually will return to the high court, which could, absent leftist activists such as Ruth Ginsburg, send the fight back to the states, as the court did with abortion in its Dobbs decision.

She was denied that accommodation by a progressive governor, but when the newly elected Republican Gov. Matt Bevin took office in December 2015, he granted religious accommodation to all clerks by executive order.

Liberty Counsel noted then in April 2016, the legislature unanimously granted religious and conscience accommodation to all clerks from issuing marriage licenses that conflict with their religious beliefs.

Liberty Counsel explained, "The Ermold and Yates cases each involve a same-sex couple who sued Davis in 2015 following the Supreme Court’s Obergefell v. Hodges decision regarding 'same-sex marriage.'"

Those duos each bypassed other jurisdictions where they could have obtained their documents intentionally in order to "create a shame case" against Davis, Liberty Counsel explained.

The district court entered judgment against Davis in both cases, holding that she is personally liable to the plaintiffs by not issuing marriage licenses during the pendency of her request for religious accommodation, Liberty Counsel said.

However, Davis was entitled to an accommodation of her sincerely held religious beliefs about marriage under both the First Amendment and Kentucky law and she should not be held liable for requesting an accommodation, which she did receive in December 2015.

The legal team pointed out that three of the five justices in the Obergefell majority no longer are on the court.
