Kim Davis is going to pursue a career in evangelical ministry after she lost her job as a county clerk in the election.
Davis rose to fame in 2015 when she refused to give a marriage license to a gay couple – citing her religious beliefs – after the Supreme Court legalized marriage equality in every state. She then said that she would give no one a marriage license, so that she would treat everyone equally.
A judge told that she had to issue marriage licenses, and she spent several nights in jail for contempt of court when she refused to follow the judge’s order.
Last week, Davis lost her reelection campaign for County Clerk in Rowan County, Kentucky.
Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel, the conservative Christian organization that represented Davis, said on a Christian radio program last week that Davis will now go into “some form of ministry.”
“Frankly, I think what she’s going to do and where she’s been wanting to go, is into some form of ministry,” he said. “That’s where the Lord is leading her this time.”
Staver didn’t say what kind of ministry she would get into. Since her refusal to do her job because her homophobia, she has gotten considerable attention on the right, and her “ministry,” for all we know, may involve a presence in right wing media.
