No, I don't think Kim Davis is an evil bitch. I think she's an ignorant and un-intelligent person who bought into a rigid and archaic belief system because she lacks the intellectual resources to construct her own. In any event, I'm glad the courts put a stop to her little power play:

MOREHEAD, Ky. — The order from U.S. District Judge David L. Bunning was clear: Five of the six deputy clerks in Rowan County must begin issuing marriage licences to all couples on Friday.

The deputies agreed to Bunning’s order under oath in federal court.

When the Rowan County Courthouse opened for business Friday, a clerk was seated at the counter, behind a sign that read: “Marriage License Deputy.”

Holding hands, James Yates and William Smith Jr. entered the media-filled courthouse shortly after 8, and began the process of applying for a marriage license for at least the sixth time.

By 8:15, the couple had obtained their license.

“They got it!” a man shouted as the media scrum headed outside the courthouse.

Same-sex marriage supporters erupted in cheers: “Love won! Love won!”
