Should KY Clerk Kim Davis Have Gone to Jail?
A county clerk in Kentucky was sentenced to jail time for not granting marriage licenses to same sex couples. Kim Davis cited her personal religious beliefs, saying that she did not want to sign her name to a document that granted permission for something she does not condone.
Since clerks have to swear to uphold the United States Constitution, was the judge right in sentencing her to jail? Or, does her own Constitutional right to freely practice her religion trump her responsibilities as a representative of the government?
