Davis, the county clerk somewhere in Kentucky who has been pleading religious objection to issuing same-sex marriage licenses (and has since stopped issuing any
licenses but is getting sued
for that too, apparently didn't realize
that she issued a license to a couple including a transguy. I would feel more clear about the report if anyone has gotten Davis to comment on the matter, although I doubt it would necessarily be in her best interest to do so (given the ongoing legal proceedings). So if one assumes her definition of 'man and woman' would be about medically assigned sex [setting aside, most people don't understand med-sex particularly in the assignment
is not really based on strictly objective evidence itself]... Then she would seem to have unwittingly breached her own principle.
There's a possibly somewhat more precise (if brief) recounting of Davis' role in that marriage here
Camryn Colen and his wife Alexis said that it was another county staffer that issued the license, but that Davis is allegedly the one who said she didnít need to see Colenís birth certificate, which still identifies him as female.
... Not that it stands to reason that unwittingly breaching a principle is going to always lead someone to change. But umm in a logical world (knock on wood): It should
make people think a little bit more about...
1) whether the Bible she claims to be concerned about was actually
concerned about sexual relations or social gender roles (and I believe it was more the latter than the former, particularly in those Leviticus and Deuteronomy passages so often raised),
and 2) how society generally is so often happy to mark love and family in public life very often by the visuals of what a couple does (everything from simple hugging and sharing time/labor to umm, still too often terribly segregated gender roles which often helps people like Davis see "just a straight
couple in love" for those trans who can "pass") -- but it's usually not
by making close inspections of chromosomes, medical histories, or the space between anyone's legs.
