On June 26th, 5 members of the Supreme Court created what they described as a constitutional right for so-called same-sex marriage. Dissenting justices warned that trouble was ahead and they were correct as a Rowan County, Kentucky, clerk is being asked to appear in federal court tomorrow to defend her religious liberty because her conscience will not allow her to issue same-sex marriage licenses.

Joining Jim to discuss this critical situation was Mat Staver. Mat is the founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, an international nonprofit litigation, education and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life and the family.

The woman in question is Kim Davis. Kim has been in the Rowan County, Kentucky, clerks office for 27 years but in November of 2014 she won election to be the head of that office.

For those who may be tempted to think Kim is judging others by not issuing same-sex marriage licenses and may think she's being hypocritical because of her 3 divorces are not aware of her past. As Mat pointed out, Kim was a different person 4-1/2 years ago. At that time her mother-in-law was dying and had a wish that Kim would attend church at least once. To fulfill that wish, Kim went to church and she heard the pastor preach from the book of Galatians. Jim quoted Kim as having said, 'I owe my life to Jesus Christ who loves me and gave his life for me. Following the death of my godly mother-in-law over 4 years ago I went to church to fulfill her dying wish. There I heard a message of grace and forgiveness and surrendered my life to Jesus Christ. I am not perfect, no one is but I am forgiven and I love my Lord and must be obedient to him and to the Word of God.'

The result? Kim, her husband, along with the staff of Liberty Counsel have been hit with threats of violence and death.

As Mat pointed out, there are about 130 locations throughout the state where the homosexual couples trying to obtain marriage licenses in Rowan County could go. Instead, these couples want Kim's name affixed to their marriage licenses because, as Mat put it, '...they want Kim Davis to violate her conscience; they want to shred her beliefs.'

Mat made an appeal for a stay and that was granted until August 31. Then Liberty Counsel asked the Court of Appeals to stay it beyond August 31 pending the several months it will take to resolve the appeal. The court declined to do that. Liberty Counsel then went to the Supreme Court and they declined to extend the stay as well.

Jim requested prayer for Kim because as already noted, she is to appear in federal court tomorrow.
