Kim Davis: Gay Couples Tried To 'Make Me Eat' SCOTUS Ruling For Dinner

The right-wing activist looks back on her defiant year.

She's baaaaaack. 

Nearly a year after Kim Davis became a right-wing symbol by refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court's historic marriage equality ruling, the Kentucky county clerk hasn't given up her fight. 

In a "Truths That Transform" interview with the D. James Kennedy Ministries on Friday, Davis insisted she was "obeying my law" when she turned away same-sex couples who were seeking marriage licenses from her office in Kentucky's Rowan County last year, and dismissed the Supreme Court decision as "a ruling" and not a law. 

In the clip above of the interview, provided by Right Wing Watch, Davis said she referenced the Bible before she rejected requests for marriage licenses, but same-sex couples refused to hear her out. 

"You asked why I couldn't issue you a marriage license, and I'm explaining to you, I'm showing you why I cannot," she recalled. "They didn't want to hear that, though." 

She then added, "They wanted to shove that paper down my throat and make me eat it for my dinner."

Davis has kept a low profile for most of 2016. In February, U.S. District Court Judge David Bunning ruled that Davis, who spent five days in jail last year for contempt of court because of her refusal to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, had not interfered with her deputies' issuing the licenses in her stead since then. 

Unfortunately, for Davis, her views on marriage equality are becoming increasingly obsolete at the national level.  

Sorry not sorry, Kim.
