Kentucky clerk Kim Davis on Wednesday night explained to Fox News’ Megyn Kelly why she has still refused to resign despite numerous failed attempts to receive an accommodation for her religious beliefs.
“If I resign I lose my voice,” Davis said. “Why should I have to quit a job that I love, that I’m good at? I’ve been a county employee and served the public well for over 26 years before I got elected. It just comes back to, they can accommodate for all sorts of other issues, and we ask for one simple accommodation, and we cannot receive it.”
She has repeatedly refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, and lost her latest appeal to a federal judge this week.
Davis also told Kelly that she would not issue a marriage license to her own children if they were gay.
“I would love them because I love all people, but I would not write them a marriage license,” she said.
