Memorandum of law in support of preliminary injunction 8/15/15 (The Court must again point out that the act of issuing a marriage license to a same sex couple merely signifies that the couple has met the legal requirements to marry. It is not a sign of moral or religious approval.)

Kim Davis -the Kentucky county clerk who has for two months (sinceObergefell v. Hodges) refused to issue marriage licenses has petitioned Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan for a stay of the order compelling her to issue a marriage license to a same sex couple.  Represented by Liberty Counsel (slogan Stand for marriage  Stand against Tyranny), Davis takes the stand urged by Catholic conservative lawyer/philosopher Robert George: Obergefell, like Dred Scott, is a decision that should be defied.

Davis - who is facing charges of official misconduct - seeks accommodation.  Perhaps her strongest argument is that she should be treated like conscientious objectors who refuse to carry a weapon.  But perhaps she should like Gandhi go to jail as an act of conscience, or like some C.O.'s be compelled to perform corporal works of mercy.  -gwc
