Searching For The “Gay Friends” Of Kim Davis

Yesterday Kim Davis told ABC News that she not only has gay friends, she’s personally denied them a marriage license.  The search for these alleged friends is now on. First, let’s hear from Kentucky Equality:

Does Kim Davis have gay friends whom she has denied marriage licenses as she claimed to ABC’s Good Morning America? Are you one of her gay “best friends” that she claims to have? If you are, the media would like to speak to you to verify this claim because Kentucky Equality Federation simply doesn’t believe anything that comes out of this woman’s mouth. If you can verify her claim, please email us here on our Official Facebook Page and we will pass the reporters information to you.

The Daily Beast is also on the case:

The Liberty Counsel, which is providing Davis with legal representation, said Davis would not provide her gay friends’ names to them. “It’s her life,” spokeswoman Charla Bansley said. “I don’t even know who they are.” When pressed about the existence of these friends, Bansley stood firm. “I don’t think she would lie,” Bansley said. “Someone who goes to jail for her conscience wouldn’t lie about that.” Other attempts to locate any of Davis’s friends were also unsuccessful.

Dwain Wallace, Davis’s first husband said she did not have any gay friends when they were married. As for now? “I wouldn’t have a clue, to be honest.” Brian Mason, the deputy clerk who has granted marriage licenses in lieu of Davis, said he didn’t know if any of the eight same-sex couples he issued licenses to are friends of his boss. Two of the couples contacted by The Daily Beast said they were not friends of Davis. “I’m not sure,” he said when asked whether Davis knows any gay people. “I don’t know.” Mason added he doesn’t “keep up with her personal life” enough to know whether Davis hangs out with any gays, either.

Davis did not respond to an emailed query on the subject. (Tipped by JMG reader Str8 Grandmother)

  • AtticusP

    You know, Kim…

    • Ginger Snap

      I thought I had it bad because I take a med that does that to me. Poor jesus must be on the shitter all day with all his lying believers.

      • Bj Lincoln

        My meds do the opposite.

        • matt n

          i just finished a course of clyndamycin for a tooth infection. what a nightmare.

        • Ginger Snap

          Either side effect is uncomfortable.

      • WildwoodGuy

        Believe me! I know how that feels. Have had constant diarrhea for the last four months and Docs have (as yet) no idea what is causing it. I feel as though I’m chained to my toilet. Can’t go anywhere, do anything, canceled dental appointments, had to give away my tickets for Wicked (that REALLY hurt) canceled appointments where the drive was more than 10 minutes because I couldn’t be sure I’d get there without a change of clothes necessary.

        What’s a poor Xtain to do?

        • noni

          Depends

        • Ginger Snap

          That sounds awful and sounds like colitis or crones disease.

          • ZhyKitty

            Or a side effect of RA meds or a sign of stage 2 Addisons disease.

          • WildwoodGuy

            Okay ZhyKitty! Now you’re SCARING me! I’m hoping for something SIMPLE, okay?

          • WildwoodGuy

            It is awful and though it was news to me, there are three specific types of collagenous diseases specific to HIV. So although the Doc’s haven’t ruled out either colitis or crones, I’m meeting with a ‘team’ of gastroenterologists on 9/30 to discuss. Probably a colonoscopy and biopsies in my near future! Oh YAY!

          • Ginger Snap

            A colonoscopy is really a simple procedure so don’t worry about it, they’ll get you nice and high before the anal probe you. I hope all works out and it’s not serious. Take care of yourself and be well darling.

          • WildwoodGuy

            Thanks! I’ve certainly had my fair share of them. It’s not the procedure… it’s the prep before it. And thanks for caring! I don’t want to believe it’s the HIV meds because my numbers are so good… and if it means I have to change to new meds again, I will… just know that every change ultimately limits lifetime options.

          • Ginger Snap

            I’ve been through all the meds myself and have had violent reactions to most of them. I’m on a good cocktail now that I can tolerate but know that someday that won’t be true anymore, and there aren’t any other options for me. It also discourages me to no avail that most drug companies have stopped research on new protease inhibitors and have moved to prevention/cure makes me feel like we are being left to die while they suck the last penny from our accounts.

          • WildwoodGuy

            Glad you finally got a good regimen that works for you. I hear you regarding the huge sucking noise occurring every time I have to re-order meds. Definitely put a cramp in MY lifestyle! I think your concerns about the stopped research and moving on are why the Martin Shkreli story so angered me.

          • Silver Badger

            As much as we bitch about the high cost of American antivirals, the outrageous prices do give an incentive for new research. Look at how HIV meds have evolved over the years. I now take two small pills once a day!

      • RoFaWh

        If that med is an antibiotic, there’s a way to prevent post-antibiotic diarrhea. Take lots of probiotic capsules while on the med, and continue taking probiotics for two weeks after finishing the antibiotic.

        This establishes a temporary, artificial bowel flora that blocks the overgrowth of Clostridium difficile specifically, and prevents diarrhea more generally.

        “Lots of probiotic capsules” means several with each meal and others when you think about it.

        Advised by my doctor years ago and my practice ever since – and it’s been a long time since I had diarrhea after taking antibiotics.

        • Ginger Snap

          HIV meds side effects that come and go. I take probiotics and they help but when I’m having a serious attack like this week there isn’t much I can do but let it run it’s course. Thanks for the helpful information.

          • ZhyKitty

            I’m glad to know that I am not the only one of us confined to bed on a stack of towels and pads this week (also med related but combined with total pelvic floor collapse, awaiting surgery. Isn’t that lovely?)
            .It somehow makes it all seem less undignified and embarrassing if it’s not just me.
            Funny how that works.
            You’ve no idea how seeing everyone speaking so openly about such things lifted my spirits, even while I feel bad for all of us at the same time! lol

          • B Snow

            Wow. I hope you can get that surgery soon!

          • ZhyKitty

            Thank you, me too. I’m looking forward to it.
            South Carolina Medicaid deems this condition as non-life threatening, unlike some of my past surgeries, and so I get to wait for a surgeon while we go through the referral and acceptance stuff again … and in the meantime, pretty much unable and unwilling to leave the house, here I lay.
            (I don’t think I’ve even brushed my hair since April.)
            They were supposed to do an ultrasound last month, but it never happened – and honestly, I’ve no idea where they think they’ll insert that wand under the circumstances, anyway. My daughter, a future OBGYN, says this situation is sadly VERY common, and something women should be told about before they have a hysterectomy (though evidently this also happens to women who haven’t had them, too)….but…no one did tell me, nor had I ever heard anyone speak of such a thing before, and so you can imagine my ‘surprise’ to find part of me where it shouldn’t be (only a stage 3 collapse for now, thank goodness) the first time I felt that there.
            I nearly fainted.

          • B Snow

            Yeah, I don’t know why so many women are so gung-ho for getting stuff taken out.

          • ZhyKitty

            I didn’t have a choice. A lot of women don’t.
            All I have left is one ovary on the right. Everything else, including my cervix, is gone.
            I’m not sorry. I beat cervical cancer (caused by HPV) in my late 20’s, and I’d already had all the children I wanted to squeeze out before that, so when they said it all had to go, given the amount of pain I was in, I was just like…fine…where do I sign?
            And honestly, until THIS happened, I loved it.
            (Once you get through the first 4 months of agony healing after they rip it all out.)

          • Schlukitz

            Hope you get that operation soon and that you are on the mend in short order.

          • ZhyKitty

            I thank you for that.
            Cross your fingers they give me a good surgeon…that’s the only thing I’m nervous about. With Medicaid it’s always a crap shoot, but so far I’ve been REALLY lucky.
            This is something easy to fix though, I’m told, and really routine, so it’s nothing to stress over…it’s just embarrassing and inconvenient, really.

          • Schlukitz

            Fingers crossed.

          • 2karmanot

            Good healing vibs going out to you!!! 🙂

          • ZhyKitty

            Thank you, sugar.
            I’m not in pain…just…inconvenienced.
            It’ll all work out. It always does!

          • Ginger Snap

            Life has a funny way of doing that doesn’t it?

          • ZhyKitty

            It does, and the older we get, the more times we’ve seen it work out like that….so the less we stress over things.
            I used to get all in a tizzy over things when I was young, but now it takes something major to pull the rug out from under my nerves, it really does….because I’ve long since come to the realization that A. There’s nothing I can do about most of the bad stuff that happens and B. Even if you can’t see how it possibly could, it WILL work out in the end..whatever it is.

            Ah…to be young again in body but to have the minds we have now…what couldn’t we do?

          • Ginger Snap

            I spent to much of the 90’s cleaning up shit covered dying friends to care about polite conversations of bowel movements. Anytime you need to vent about shit ZhyKitty just toss a rant my way I’m your gal. I’ll do what I can to lift your spirits.

          • ZhyKitty

            You already have, darling. You don’t know how much.
            It can be, as you know, an isolating thing to be in this kind of situation, when you can’t control your bodily functions… but you just reminded me that not only is it not taboo to come out and say something about it, I’m also damn lucky that it’s only a temporary condition, and one that can be fixed, unlike what others have faced, bless them, may they rest in peace.
            They surely earned it.

          • Ginger Snap

            I remember my friend Lenny calling me when he was getting near the end and no one would help him or go see him. “Colin (my real name) can you come clean me and get a steam cleaner on your way over it’s really bad.” I can still hear the pain in his voice having to ask me to do this and I was glad to do it. I spent an entire day steam cleaning shit out of his mattress and his carpets. When I was done cleaning we smoked a joint and had a good laugh about it all. Every time I have an accident I laugh and think of Lenny. That, if any haters are reading this is what having a “gay friend” is all about. When you have nothing or nobody there at your worst moment the “gay friend” is there. Damn now I want to smoke a joint with Lenny it’s been too long.

            Zhy for some reason I can spill my guts when chatting with you.Love ya Darling.

          • RoFaWh

            HIV meds aren’t antibiotics.

          • Ginger Snap

            I know but that is what causes my diarrhea. Was just responding to you that that was the cause and not antibiotics. I guess I didn’t word it very well.

        • WildwoodGuy

          Yes, definitely thanks for this info RoFaWh. Some things, the docs don’t tend to tell you. Not certain if it is to insure you continue coming to see them or what but this information is definitely helpful!

          • Silver Badger

            My doctor told me that telling me of side effects would make it more probable I have them. I said “bullshit, I’ll looked them up myself.” And did.

    • Joe in PA

      that is so wrong…I love it!

    • Joseph Miceli

      That’s TERRIBLE! You should be ashamed to post that. Everyone knows that the baby Jesus has BLUE eyes!

    • You must not have gotten the memo:

      • Silver Badger

        You’d think SOMEONE would think about Mary! You don’t think Joseph or the little donkey cleans up the mess!

        • The mother of god’s work is never done.

      • ZhyKitty

        OMG xtian heads exploding at the renaming to Holiday Infant!!!!
        All it needs it a commercial for Planned Parenthood at the bottom to make the PERFECT holiday billboard.

        • Ginger Snap

          The present Mary didn’t want to open on Dec 25th. She knew it was going to be a “Holiday Infant” that was going to have a lot of explaining to the world about the “virgin birth.”

          • ZhyKitty

            ROTFLMAO
            If she was a real person in those times, and only 14, and she actually pulled off that tall tale to save herself from being stoned to death…then my hat’s off to her.
            LMAO

      • Happy Dance

        LOL Holiday Infant!! Quick! Get Walmart on the phone!!!

    • glass

      No wonder churches are so full of shit.

  • Philly Mike

    She is not saved or washed of any of her past or present sins she is just a bigot using religion to shield her true intentions.

    • RoFaWh

      She’s a hypocrite, a liar, and certainly no “Christian” as normally understood.

      I hope someone says that to her face. Many someones, in fact. Early and often.

  • Joe in PA

    “I don’t think she would lie,”….

    So where is the “hahahahahaha” label?

    • Blobby

      she can’t lie………..she’s a Christian!!!!!

    • rusty57

      Those aren’t “lies”, those are “parables”.

    • Cousin Bleh

      Oh, she can lie all she wants. She just prays to Jeebus on Sunday and all her sins are forgiven.

      • noni

        and she confirmed that in her interview.

        • vorpal

          Yup. She admits she may not be perfect (the downplay of the century to date), but she is FORGIVEN because Jeeebus.

          • douglas

      • douglas

        “Washed clean”……………unlike her hair.

  • Wynter Marie Starr

    She’s got gay friends like members of the KKK have black friends.

    Her definition of friendship is quite different than mine. I want my friends to be happy, to have the same rights I do, and to be treated in a manner that is respectful and doesn’t have the stench of discrimination attached to it. Unlike this harpy, I actually care about the people I call friends.

    • MarkOH

      “She’s got gay friends like members of the KKK have black friends.”
      Haha, my first thought too

    • BobSF_94117

      In fairness, the KKK folks can’t really be sure, what with the hoods and all.

    • b

      To be fair to her, she only obeys God. So if got wants her to lie to the public so she can block gay marriage, why shouldn’t she ignore God’s top ten rules? After all, if it damages gays, you can ignore the Ten Commandments, right?

    • JoeNCA

        And, we all know how history has judged such people.

          ..I don’t get it…
          The implication is this painting shows he’s gay? Not sure how

          • rusty57

            I’ve no idea whether or not Jesus -if indeed he existed- was of the homosexual persuasion and the artist’s intentions, as well as his name, are unknown to me.
            I found this on the internet, fancied it, and have used it in a few postings here and there where an image of the Christ might seem appropriate.
            You can read into it whatever you like.
            Perhaps it means Jesus -if indeed he existed- suffered far more than that odious, delusional trollop Kim Davis, so her incessant whining about the violation of her beliefs is laughable.
            Or maybe it means, in a tangential way, that Jesus -if indeed he existed- hung about with a better class of whore than Kim Davis.

          • Fired, Aren’t I

            Right, I get it, Jesus probably didn’t exist. I already subscribe to that form of skepticism so there’s no need to drive it home three times as if I’m (1) lacking basic reading comprehension or (2) going to pounce with offense at the mere thought of “the son of god” not existing.

          • rusty57

            Whoopsie.
            Sorry about that Fired, Aren’t I, I was riffing on Mr. Ehrenstein’s phrase about the correct physical portrayal of the ethnicity of a god who Mr. Ehrenstein himself suggests might not be real.
            No offense to you was intended and I apologize.

            Though, if the truth be told, I do enjoy the occasional pounce.

          • Fired, Aren’t I

            Ah. Not familiar with Mr. Ehrenstein. But I appreciate very much the contrition. And too many people are pouncing these days. I need to step back from that.

    • j.martindale
      • Richard Rush

        Exactly. If all of your friends are hearing voices in their heads, it seems perfectly normal.

    Somewhat in contrast to previous commentary, I believe she’s using Staver and the Liberty Counsel, as much as they’re using her.

      I wonder who will fuck whom when the chips are really really down.

      It would amuse me endlessly if Davis managed to somehow rip off Staver and his buddies.

    Michaelangelo Signorile was on this yesterday on his Sirius Radio program. He’s on the trail of these elusive “gay friends” and he believes, as I and every other gay person believes, that if she has any gay friends, which is doubtful, that she never denied them a marriage license. If this is a LIE, she needs to be caught in it.

    • Steven Leahy

      I listend to that too, he was great. LOVED the way he tore up the two xtian guys who called in.

  • bryan

    Davis has redefined the word ‘friend’.

    • KCMC

      just wondering if women in her prison ministry were counted as, ‘friends?’

      • Todd20036

        Maybe, but not gay. Lesbians don’t count in most tea baggers’ eyes.

        • GayOldLady

          We don’t count as what? Gay people? That’s not been my experience with the tea baggers. They absolutely count us as gay people, but they don’t count us as human.

          • Steven Leahy

            They count us as “homosexuals”. When someone in the US uses that word, I immediately recognize their political and social affinities.

          • GayOldLady

            Oh yeah, the ” dirty word”. I live around a lot of tea party, confederate flag waving, homophobic, rednecks. To them a “homosexual” is a “homosexual”. They don’t see lesbians as those gals in the “hot” porno flicks. The see us as “perverted sinners”. I think they fear gay men more than they fear gay women, but they hate equally.

          • teeveedub

            They fear the butt secks.

    • grimnebulin2

      Maybe she uses Jesus’s definition of a friend, from John 15:14: “You are my friends if you do what I command you.”

  • Blobby

    you know those two gay hoteliers who had a party for Ted Cruz? You might ask them – they probably are friends with Kim.

    • rusty57

      Is that John Travolta or Clint Eastwood in drag?

  • Arkansan

    That’s just crazy talk. No person with gay friends would ever be allowed to dress and wear her hair as she does.

    • Mark Nelson

      …or be seen with her.

  • Ginger Snap

    Maybe her “gay friends” are hanging out with the guy that spouted off about Muslims at the NH tRump rally.

    • Mark Nelson

      That was her second husband.

      • Silver Badger

        No, her second husband is now her current husband. Maybe the first or third.

        • Mark Nelson

          Forgive me. I lost count.

          • Silver Badger

            I have a chart.

  • Cosmo Tupper

    All of the couples denied licenses by her are her “friends” because it is obvious her definition of friend is anyone who enters her office and either gets served or gets told to fuck off because she AIN’T serving them.

    • Chris Baker

      There are no strangers, only friends she hasn’t met.

      • Silver Badger

        How kind. But ask yourself, does Ms. Davis (ahem) Wallace deserve kind at this time?

        • Chris Baker

      LOL now THAT would make sense.

    • Mark Nelson

      I’ve wondered about Mason all along. He’s got that Gaydar-Rising look about him. Someone should take him out in the back of the double-wide and test him out.

  • When someone says, “I have gay friends, but…” then that person doesn’t have any gay friends.

  • Rex

    If she has gay friends, they obviously aren’t her hairdresser or stylist.

    • John T

      If a hairdresser/stylist dressed up a movie actress for a Kim Davis type role — a sanctimonious hypocritical un-self-aware bitch — the director would send her back to the wardrobe department for looking too over-the-top and cliché. I like to believe that Kim Davis does have a gay “friend” who gives her stylist advice and knows exactly what he’s doing.

        No food or drink while you are visiting the blog! We can’t have you doing a faceplant on the keyboard!

        • ZhyKitty

          LOL!!! Wouldn’t that be something?
          I can hardly think of a more memorable death (for the loved ones left behind) than someone having literally laughed themselves to death! lol
          Especially since you’d also evacuate your bladder and bowels when you went….and ah… I’m alone in here with so many animals…I’m thinking that would be a messy affair altogether…but funny! Not funny haha, but totally hilarious in a very dark and sick way, like when our friend Marty OD’ed and eventually went stiff, dick in hand, as he’d been masturbating in my ex wife’s bed (she was asleep on the couch) with a pair of her dirty panties from the laundry on his face when the dope kicked in.
          (She didn’t find him till morning when she went to pee.)
          Anyone who knew him knew that if he survived death in some form, and looked down on himself like that he’d have said “Ha! That’s TOO fucking PERFECT!”
          Meanwhile, everyone was left to mentally processes this at 5 am after a bender, while scrambling to get rid of the drugs and such before calling 911.

          • William

            Poor Marty, what a way to go! I’d prefer something similar, involving Hugh Jackman.

          • 2karmanot

            I’m getting in line if Jackman’s there.

          • ZhyKitty

            LOL I think we’d all like that, if it had to be!

            As far as Marty, don’t feel bad. He’d have loved the scene and he was destined for a death by od and would have been the first to say so. It wasn’t exactly a shock…it was just the way he went rigor that was a scandal. It would have been funny if it hadn’t scared the hell out of everyone there that he was too big to move so they had to call the police to come in their house. lol

          • 2karmanot

            My little dog is a vegetarian, so I’m safe for now.

          • William

            Ours aren’t picky. If the food bowls aren’t filled, they will eat whoever is available.

          • ZhyKitty

            LOL!!! I don’t have any veggie pets.
            I’ve thought this through a few times…we have so many pets…if we were to die on them, and no one realized we were gone, so no one was feeding them, I wouldn’t mind if they ate me. WTF when you’re dead you don’t need it anyway… lol So I say, bon appetit!

          • Ginger Snap

            Now you have me laughing my ass off.

  • Steven Leahy

    LOL I was on the road yesterday and Signorile was going OFF about this. “They always have gay friends! But we never see them!”

  • crewman

    Did anyone check her pockets? Because usually when I know I have something but it can’t be found, it’s in my pockets. Or underneath the couch. Check there too.

    • Steven Leahy

      I’d rather check your pockets than hers. Just saying:-)

      • crewman

        Steven: Is that a “gay friend” in your pocket or are you happy to see me?

        Me: … uh both?

        • Steven Leahy

          Let me check!

        • Steven Leahy

          BOTH!

    • D. J.

      Maybe stuck in her car seat?

    • Mark Nelson

      When bigots get caught and called out over it, they develop and fabricate gay friends. Politicians do it all the time.

    • Steven Leahy

      god is the only friend she needs. Oh except the imaginary homosexual friends.

      • Sam_Handwich

        wait, did you just call god an imaginary homosexual?

        • Steven Leahy

          Look how old he is, never been married? HMM what do YOU think…?

          • Silver Badger

            Don’t forget, he only had one child, by a virgin. It does make one wonder.

        • JaniceInToronto

          HERESY!!! God is a -real- homosexual!

    • Mark Nelson

      You got that right.

    • Schlukitz

      No friend, perhaps…but tons of apparent supporters.

      • oikos

        As soon as the possibility of publicity and cash garnered from this sow disappears, so will they.

    now wait a minute … she used to live in a neighborhood where they was a gay couple – ummmm…maybe a gay couple as they was saying that they were father & son but everybody had suspicions tho’ and anyway once some mail that was mis-directed went to their place and they brought it over to us. Now that’s real friendly. Naaw nobody remembers their name ’cause we burned them out…and they just …left.

    • Bj Lincoln

      Most of my neighbors thought we were sisters or other relative until told otherwise. The one very old lady next door was never told the truth. She didn’t have many friends and truly enjoyed our time talking over the fence but she would have stopped if she found out… being a good christian and all.

      • Mark Nelson

        “…but she would have stopped (and prayed) with her third or fourth husband if she found out…” because, Christian and all. Gay friends my foot.

  • FYI, the Kentucky Equality Federation as I understand it is basically one guy. 99 out of 100 gays in the state have never heard of them. Fairness is the credible LGBT rights organization in the state.

    • Bj Lincoln

      At least that one guy is trying.

  • Gene Perry

    She has no gay friends … look at that hair of hers … Mary, please!

    • Schlukitz

      Careful now. You might be attacked for “hair-shaming” 😀

  • TimG

    I wonder if these people with “lots of gay friends” are talking about people they THINK are gay. And there’s always the choir director at church ….

    • Schlukitz

      And the organist…

  • JT
    • Stev84

      And don’t collect $80,000

    • Schlukitz

      Whenever I see a picture of her contenance, I am seized with a strong urge to urinate.

  • bkmn

    I hate to ask but did anyone check her fat folds for them?

    • Mark Nelson

      Yes, during the intake cavity search. None were found.

  • Saying hello in a friendly manner to people you think might be gay before going to work to screw them over is not ‘friends’.

    • Mark Nelson

      But according to Davis, it’s allowable.

      • Silver Badger

        Required!

  • HomerTh

    Sociopaths cannot tell the difference between friends and some person they walked by 10 years ago.

  • Bj Lincoln

    There is a big difference between ‘friend’ and ‘acquaintance’.
    Even IF she had gay friends, do you think they would come forward to defend her? I don’t think so.

    • Stev84

      In the South they don’t distinguish that I think. Everyone immediately acts like they are your best friend.

      • Bj Lincoln

        Good point.

      • Silver Badger

        The key word is “acts”.

    • Mark Nelson

      I think every person in that county will be scrutinized and checked to see if they are a friend of hers. They’ll call them Gayvis.
      “Um, hey there fella, you one of them Gayvis Guys they’re talkin’ ’bout?”

  • Amanda B. Rekendwith

    Given the way that facebook has appropriated and redefined the word “friend”, I’m not surprised that she might think she has gay “friends”.
    Then again, she also believes in talking snakes, living inside a whale for 3 days and 3 nights, and that disobedient teens should be put to death.

  • Richard Rush

    If one of her gay friends was a county clerk, and had denied her a fourth marriage license simply because she was an adulterous whoring tramp, I’m sure she would have filed a lawsuit.

    • D. J.

      That clerk would have been her mother.
      Quimmie will likely be offered a book deal by one of those “Christianist Only” publishers.
      I’d rather hear from her mother……the horrors of raising Quimmie, Queen of Kentucky Drama.
      Did her mother ever tell Quimmie that she missed her calling? She should have been a Drama coach. Oh, and tearing up on demand. Crying for the camera….even Bette Davis said she never truly mastered that one, but Quimmie can hold her own with the best of them.

  • Dale082

    Fucking LIAR. I sure as shit hope that this goes national and that adulterous cow is caught in a big fat LIE!

    • Mark Nelson

      I am pretty sure she already has been.

      • Silver Badger

        At least once or twice. (I’m not sure how to count twins.)

        • unsavedheathen

          ^^^This^^^

    • KentDean

      Her first lie was describing herself as a Christian.

  • joyzeeboy

    I think it’s important to remember that when a Born-Again type says he or she “has gay friends” what they really mean is, “I met someone 20 years ago at a snake-handling, speaking-in-tongues convention who struck me as being a total fag.”

  • Mark Nelson

    Calling all Kim Davis Gay Friends: Come out, come out, wherever you are. Don’t be afraid or ashamed. None of us will tease you or torment you or bully you. Just come out and identify yourselves.
    Tell us of the good Christian friendship you have with her. All of us want to know about it. Tell us how she denied you a marriage license and how you immediately understood. Tell us how you pay taxes so she can keep her $80,000 a year job, yet weren’t offended when she denied you a marriage license in her official capacity as an elected County Clerk. We all want to hear your stories and we promise to be respectful when you tell us of your friendship with her.
    Don’t be shy. Post your stories here, or anywhere else on the net. An entire population of people wants to know all about you and how you cherish your friendship with this woman. We also want to know if you share holidays with her, or dinners. Does she watch your dog when you travel? Does she bring you medicine when you are sick? Does she mind your children when you go to work? Do you chat for hours on the phone? Does she ask you how your day was? Does she drop by for occasional friendly visits? Tell us. Tell us about all of it. That is, if you exist at all.

    • Do you get your dog back when you return from travelling?

      • Schlukitz

        FTW!

    • bzrd

      She believes in the sky Grand daddy so it’s not hard to understand that she also has invisible gay friends coming over to party.

      Come out, come out wherever you are.

  • Robert W. Pierce

    It’s quite possible that she does have gay friends but then I would suspect they oppose same-sex marriage as some do. Or, it’s also possible that they might be paid to say they are her friends. Some people do or say anything for money.

  • Dagoril

    Somebody look in her closet. Maybe her gay friends are in there!

  • Michael Senesac

    Mat Staver was such a fool to let her do this interview. The ACLU has even more evidence to nail her.

    • Schlukitz

      Did anyone ever suggest that Mat Staver is smart?

  • I did my patriotic duty to help Kimmie find her missing friends. This is so terrible. All of her gay “friends” have gone missing. (I bet her daughter has them secreted away with that puppy.)

    • Octavio

      I hope Kim hasn’t killed them all and eaten them. Yeah, that would be bad.

      • Schlukitz

        Has anyone checked out the abandoned wells in her neighborhood?

    • BlueberriesForMe

      “Manhunt”. :=).

  • StraightGrandmother

    One thing I am happy about is that the daily Beast tracked down her first husband & got him to talk. Not many people around her are talking so I liked that part of it.

    • Gustav2

      No one is talking, not even the other county officials who told her not to do this months ago.

      • People have really closed ranks around her. So either the folks in this area really like her, or more possibly they are afraid of her power.

        • Gustav2

          Or they letting her hang herself and minding their own business. If they want to be re-elected in this county, they can’t appear to be against the Christianists.

  • Steven Alan Taylor

    Folks, in Appalachia, leftists and queer folk and so forth often need to swallow their pride to maintain social relationships, especially when those social relationships are the key to getting anything done in life. I don’t doubt that she has gay friends, and I also don’t doubt that most of them don’t like what she’s doing but have the “common decency” dictated by a Kentucky culture of quiet not to make a big fuss over it until they need to.

    • Silver Badger

      It’s much better to maintain “common decency” when the alternative is having your dog killed, your kids beaten and your house set on fire!

      • Schlukitz

        What a horrible way to have to live ones life. 🙁

        • Silver Badger

          Yep. Until very recently, (60 years isn’t a long time by most standards) we all lived in secrecy. So much better than castration, electro-shock or a lobotomy.

    • Agreed. But possibly “friend” is to strong of a word, acquaintances might be a better fit.

      • Schlukitz

        Yes. Many people labor under the delusion of having “friends” when, in fact, there are mere acquaintances.

  • Ken M

    Doesn’t Rowan County keep records of Denied Licenses? This may be a good place to start since she also claimed to deny licenses to these “gay friends.”

    • Schlukitz

      Are public records kept of those who are denied marriage licenses?

  • bdsmjack

    I found her one gay friend! Former cellmate:

  • Please stop making comments about how fat, dowdy and plain she is. I know some very decent, compassionate people who are fat, dowdy and plain. And lay off the lesbian prison jokes too.

    • txscotty39

      You must be her only gay friend…………………..heh

      • zhera

        No. He’s just being reasonable. There are plenty of us who are sick of the body shaming. Kim Davis, Maggie Gallagher, Porno Pete, Brian Brown… they’re all ugly on the inside where it actually matters. Why not focus on that?

        • Bravo! Physical beauty, or the lack thereof, has no bearing on if the person is a decent human being. Honestly, what are we age 13? Lets stop already with cutting down people, or building them up for their appearance and instead judge them on who they are as humans.

        • Schlukitz

          In all fairness, we do.

          Often.

          And loudly.

    • brian

      You’re not the boss of me!

    • LonelyLiberal

      In this particular instance, her own belief system demands that she be dowdy, unkempt, and very, very plain.

      So for that, it’s fair game. Plus it forms the outward expression of her lack of compassion and sense in this case.

      As far as the lesbian prison jokes, I think we all just want her to find her true love.

    • olandp

      Beauty comes from within, there is no beauty within Kimmy.

    • John T

      I agree with you about the fat-shaming part, but her style is a fair target. It goes beyond dowdiness, it’s an intentional look that says “I’m the most righteous church lady around.”

    • Schlukitz

      Why should we be respetful of her when she is so downright disrespectful of us?

      She fired the first shots.

      All is fair in love and war.

  • Bruno

    They’re imaginary, like her “god”.

  • Mark Nelson

    You know, if Davis is so upset over gay marriage, perhaps she should take a close look at how the good gay people impact her life each and every day of her miserable existence. She should stay out of diners, stop shopping for food at the local store, stop wearing clothes (God Forbid!) and stop pumping gasoline. Her kids should be home schooled, and all television should be banned from her home. In other words, shut themselves out of the real world and live in a cave.
    Gay People (yes it’s capitalized) are everywhere, and no matter what steps a bigot takes to try and avoid it, they interact with them in almost each and every aspect of their business lives, or as consumers, or as entrepreneurs. Gay People cook, clean, raise children, have families of their own and in spite of the bigots in this world, some are remarkably successful in ways bigots can only imagine or dream about.
    Not that it matters to her, but Kim Davis has done serious damage to the Republican Party. When Mike Huckabee showed up on the day of her release from jail, I decided to change my party affiliation, and I can’t help but believe others like me haven’t at least toyed with the idea of doing the same thing. Hate never wins.
    Love always wins.

  • Xuuths

    Not only does she claim to have gay and lesbian friends, she claims that they’re okay with what she’s doing. She claims they respect each other. So… we’re looking for gay and lesbian friends of hers who are okay with what she’s doing and respect her and she “respects” them.

    Easier to find a real-life flying pegasus!

    Fat, lying, hypocritical repulsive woman. I loathe her and her kind almost beyond my ability to express. She is capitalizing on the religious bigot gravy train, and I truly loathe what she has done. And ABC is even worse, being complicit in promoting hatred. Odd when there are so many LGBTQ people working for Disney and ABC. Just shows that ratings mean more than truth to these dimwits.

      If that was a friend you would never refrain, but tell them at every opportunity that they are doomed to hell unless they repent and deny their true natures and live like you do. That is what true christian love is all about.

    For those of you who haven’t seen the Fashion Police episode from this past Monday, Melissa Rivers has a great line about Kim Davis at the very end of the show…They all hated the dress Heidi Klum wore to the Emmy Awards. It looked like pieces of 3 different dresses sewn together, all in canary yellow. Melissa said about the dress..”the only way this dress could get any uglier is if Kim Davis wore it while denying marriage licenses to same-sex couples”!

  • aislander

    I was certainly disappointed, though not at all surprised by Paula Faris’ uber-softball interview of Kim Davis. (Although the ‘Nightline” program’s edit of the interview did contain a very short glimpse within it that was less flattering of this off-the-wall nutcase than did GMA, The View or World News Tonight’s versions) My hopes were very low after hearing Faris days ago on her “The View” gig defending Davis, claiming that she can’t be called a hypocrite because her four marriages and children born out of wedlock happened before she was “born again”. (A status which Faris herself says she shares).

    I was particularly disappointed with Faris’ question asking Davis if she thought her beliefs outweighed the “happiness” of the couples denied licenses. If I were her producer, I would have certainly pointed out that much more than these couples “happiness” was involved. How about their Constitutionally guaranteed rights? Of course if I were an ABC exec producer I would never have assigned the biased Ms. Faris to this interview, although I’ll bet that the Davis team specifically insisted on having her do the interview.

    For the “over two hours” she spent interviewing Davis, we sure didn’t get much footage, mostly a lot of her weeping and how she’s been called a hypocrite and told by some that her god doesn’t love her for judging others, and of course trying to claim some of her BFF’s are gay, but they respect her and are still good friends.

    I also suspect that she REALLY want’s to hang on to this job for pension purposes. If she has a typical government type pension, her benefit will probably be based upon years of service factored with the highest 5 years of compensation. I’m sure her compensation (and thus any contributions she made to the pension fund) for the last twenty some years as a subordinate to the previous county clerk (her mother) was probably a fraction of her current $80K which she only started receiving upon taking office this year . Thus if she hangs on for at least this term, her pension will be orders of magnitude greater than if she actually did the decent thing and resigned now. I wish a local reporter would look into this.

  • Bill T.

    • ZhyKitty

      Exactly!
      That bitch does NOT have any gay friends, and I hope she gets publicly exposed for the lies she’s telling…..and maybe somehow it could lead to Charlie Brown going back to his real daddy….
      (I just threw that in since we’re wishing and dishing.)

      It’s a low down scummy person that would steal someone’s precious fur baby, it really is.

  • Anne

    Can you do a blog post on a previous time Kim Davis abused her political power for her own benefit, namely when she helped her daughter get away with stealing a man’s dog (!!!) in 2013? That’s after she converted to her current cult, I wonder if god forgives her for that evilness too…

  • kiltedyak

    This has all the importance of a beer fart in a whirlwind to anything.

  • Ore Carmi

    When is she going back to jail already? I’m pissed that she got off so easy on the ABC interview, and I’m pissed that she endangered the civil rights of the same-sex couples who obtained marriage licenses at the Rowan County courthouse by tampering with the forms.

  • Steven Leahy

    OK, back from work, did we find the gay friends???
