The world is searching for Kim Davis’ gay best friends who she claims to have denied a marriage licence to during and interview with ABC’s Good Morning America.
“I have friends who are gay and lesbians. They know where I stand,” said the outspoken Kentucky clerk in an attempt to claim she was not a homophobe because some of her best friends were gay.. “And we don’t agree on this issue and we’re okay because we respect each other.”
“So you would deny your friends who are in gay relationships, you would deny them a marriage license as well?” asked ABC’s Paula Faris.
Davis said she already had. “I can’t put my name on a license that doesn’t represent what God ordained marriage to be.”
“People will question: why is your moral conscience, Kim, more important than someone’s happiness?” asked Fais.
“I don’t think dignity is guaranteed in the Constitution. I think dignity is something that you find within yourself,” Davis said. “I feel really sad that someone could be so unhappy with themselves as a person that they did not feel dignified as a human being until they got a piece of paper. I mean, there’s just so much more to life than that.”
Kentucky Equality is using their Facebook page to help track down Davis’ supposed gay friends:
The Daily Beast has also joined the hunt:
Dwain Wallace, Davis’s first husband said she did not have any gay friends when they were married. As for now? “I wouldn’t have a clue, to be honest.” Brian Mason, the deputy clerk who has granted marriage licenses in lieu of Davis, said he didn’t know if any of the eight same-sex couples he issued licenses to are friends of his boss. Two of the couples contacted by The Daily Beast said they were not friends of Davis. “I’m not sure,” he said when asked whether Davis knows any gay people. “I don’t know.” Mason added he doesn’t “keep up with her personal life” enough to know whether Davis hangs out with any gays, either.
