21. The Kentucky Constitution has specific language she should read

Section 5. Right of religious freedom.
No preference shall ever be given by law to any religious sect, society or denomination; nor to any particular creed, mode of worship or system of ecclesiastical polity; nor shall any person
be compelled to attend any place of worship, to contribute to the erection or maintenance of any such place, or to the salary or support of any minister of religion; nor shall any man be compelled to send his child to any school to which he may be conscientiously opposed; and the civil rights,
privileges or capacities of no person shall be taken away, or in anywise diminished or enlarged, on account of his belief or disbelief of any religious tenet, dogma or teaching.
No human authority shall, in any case whatever, control or interfere with the rights of conscience.

(Emphasis added by me.)

While the last sentence worries me, which should take precedence - her right to her beliefs or the rights of citizens who are paying her salary to not have their civil rights taken away by Kim Davis in her capacity as County Clerk? If I were judge, I would say that the average citizen has more rights than does any person acting as an instrument of the government at any level.

Kim Davis has a choice to perform her duties or to resign her office. Citizens do not have a choice - they must go to the civil authorities in their community for the services that they have elected to be performed by the employees of the community.

It's time for Kim Davis to resign and to take her religious beliefs to a venue not supported by taxpayer money.
