Just when you thought you’d never have to see Kim Davis or listen to her try to defend her noncompliance with a Supreme Court ruling ever again, she’s riding her 15 minutes of fame for all it’s worth, taking her anti-gay outburst overseas to Romania.
Davis has joined up with the Liberty Counsel, a far-right Christian group that has thrown its voice into the ring of current events in Romania, where a national referendum is being considered to ban same-sex marriage.
As part of the conservative group’s representation, Davis is traveling around the country giving speeches and meeting with high-ranking officials in the Orthodox Church. The Liberty Counsel is using the jail time Davis served as a warning that, should Romania fail to ban same-sex marriage, the country could return to communist-like restrictions religion. According to LGBTQ Nation, Davis is being accompanied by Harry Mihet, the vice president of legal affairs for the Liberty Counsel and a born Romanian.
“I am so glad for this amazing opportunity to finally introduce Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis personally to my Romanian people,” said Mihet. “Her story resonates loudly with them, and they are receiving her tearfully and very warmly, because they can still remember the not-so-long-ago days when they were themselves persecuted and imprisoned for their conscience.”
Romania’s referendum was spurred on by a petition signed by three million people demanding the country’s constitution define marriage as between a man and a woman, amending it from its current state which defines marriage as between “spouses.”
