Kim Davis, Kentucky country clerk, was recently arrested after she was found in contempt of court for not issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. She says that the action would violate her religious beliefs as a Christian.

U.S. District Court Judge David Bunning placed Davis in the custody of U.S. marshals until she complies with their order. He said fines were not enough to force her to issue the licenses, and allowing her to defy the order would “create a ripple effect.”

“Her good-faith belief is simply not a viable defense,” said Bunning, who also said he has deeply held religious beliefs. “Oaths mean things.”

 

But critics are not happy about her arrest, saying it is an attack on religious freedom in the United States. They also claim that the law is not being enforced equally, and cite the case of Charee Stanley as evidence.

 

Ms. Stanley is a Muslim woman who, with the help of CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations,) has filed a complaint against her former employer, ExpressJet for not accommodating her religious values. She says the airline did not work to reasonably work out an arrangement that would prevent her from being forced to serve alcohol, which violates her religious beliefs. The Political Insider published this quote:
