TBD on Ning

A non-profit organization that advocates for LGBTQ rights has a big message for Rowan County (Kentucky) clerk Kim Davis — a message that is the size of a billboard, to be exact.

Planting Peace erected a billboard in Davis' hometown of Morehead, Ky., that reads: "Dear Kim Davis, The fact that you can't sell your daughter for three goats and a cow means we've already redefined marriage."

Aaron Jackson, president of Planting Peace, told USA TODAY that the intent of the billboard is to "expose how the anti-LGBT movement is selective in what rules to follow and how they choose to define 'traditional' institutions or values."

Davis came into the spotlight this month after she refused to issue marriage licenses to gay couples on the grounds of her religious beliefs, despite the Supreme Court's 5-4 landmark ruling that legalized same-sex marriage earlier this year.

Davis, an elected official was jailed last week for defying the court and was released on Tuesday after several same-sex couples received marriage licenses from the clerk's office while Davis was in jail. However, Davis, who returns to work Monday, could face sanctions if she again interferes with eligible couples receiving licenses.

...and you thought we were just about horse racing, baseball bats, and bourbon!

Gotta love this one! How's everybody??

Forgot you were from Kentucky until you posted this.  Lucky you.  I have driven through Kentucky and was awed by the beautiful scenery and the equally striking poverty.
