KENTUCKY: Gay Couple Who Made Kim Davis Globally Infamous Gets Married [VIDEO]

The Kentucky couple whose livid videotaped confrontation with Kim Davis catapulted the renegade clerk to global infamy has gotten married. The student newspaper of Morehead State reports:

Two months ago, an infuriated David Moore pounded his fist on a counter in the Rowan County Clerk’s office as he pleaded for the right to wed his partner David Ermold. Now “the Davids” are legally bound. Moore and Ermold planned to wed last summer when the U.S. Supreme Court decided same-sex couples deserved the right. But Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis refused to comply with the federal order. In a viral video posted by Moore, more than 1 million people watched Davis tell the couple “no.” On Saturday, Moore and Ermold told one another “yes.” MSU graduate Geraldine Lewis of Elliott County officiated the ceremony, her 7-year-old daughter standing by her side as flower girl. After posing questions to the couple, she announced to the crowd that “the bond is made.” Raindrops sprinkled down from an overcast sky after the couple exchanged rings and kissed.

    Yay! The news cycle sure moves fast. I haven’t read anything new about ol’Kimmy D. for a while and that’s a good thing. I hope Brian (the “good” clerk” in that office) is doing well.

    Hooray!

  • BobSF_94117

    I hope they didn’t use Davis’ altered license.

    • Nexus1

      They received their license while Davis was in jail, those licenses are widely considered to be valid. The lesbian couple were the ones who received an altered license after Davis was released from jail, those are the ones that are though to be invalid.

      • BobSF_94117

        I wouldn’t risk my legal situation on “widely considered”. My memory may be addled, but I believe the ones issued while she was in jail were also non-conforming to KY law, though not as… fanciful… as the Davis-approved version.

        I still wouldn’t take the chance. (Unless I planned some secure way around a future finding of invalidity and could then sue the pants off Kim Davis in a civil suit.)

        • Nexus1

          If they didn’t want to take the chance then they could have gone to another county to get their licenses. All of the couples involved understand that there is a slight chance that their licenses could be deemed invalid, but as far as the couple involved in this post are concerned, they are less likely to have that problem then the couple/couples who received the licensees that Davis altered herself after being released from jail.

          • skrekk

            I hope the court orders all these licenses to be reissued using the state-mandated form.

          • Nexus1

            If the licenses that have already been issued are deemed invalid then I definitely hope that they are mandated to be reissued as well. Those couples deserve nothing less than that.

          • BobSF_94117

            All I mean is that I hope — if the license they got from the Davis office is in any way different from what it should be — that they went to another county and got a standard one. It doesn’t change their fight or make it irrelevant.

          • Nexus1

            It was different, sadly. Hopefully the difference has not made it invalid. They would undermine their case if they went and got a license from another county though. When they decided to be part of the ACLU lawsuit they committed to using a Rowan County marriage license as was their right as residents of that county. I think that they are fully aware of any risk that they are taking and are willing to deal with any negative consequences. I wish that they didn’t have to deal with it, but if it does happen then it makes the case against Davis even stronger and puts her in danger of even more jail time.

        Ya lost me, but I’ll take your word for it. 🙂

        • I’m with you. Wouldn’t mind an explanation. Ohh right: she’s married 4 times. Westboro Baptist demands Davis go back to her first hubby. He, wisely, says nothing.

    Liberty Counsel just filed another fucking half-baked brief on behalf of Kim Davis with the 6th Circuit today

      I wish I had nothing to do but file frivolous briefs with district courts all day. :-/

      • Guest

        No you don’t.

      • I prefer boxers, but to each his own.

      • clay

        I wouldn’t tell el Squeeze that if I were you.

      • rabbit_ears

        Yes, playing with underwear all day would be fun. Man arrives, you take of his underwear and play, rinse & repeat all day.

      • Jimmie Z

        Dunno, Octavio.
        I had rather pictured your briefs as Brooks Brothers.

        • Octavio

          You’re sweet. Alas, Fruit of the Loom boxers. 😉

    • o jeez gotta see this yikes why??

    no, no they can’t take that away from them, or us . . . hooray for them and all us.

    Am I the only one who actually really likes the music?

    • Octavio

      At least it wasn’t Taco Bell’s Canon in Deee. 🙂

    • I liked it too. Not the music I’d use at my own wedding (we actually forgot to turn the music on!) but I did like it. I felt bad for them feeling like they had to have media involvement in their wedding.

      CONGRATULATIONS guys!

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      I liked the music, too. It was just right for the occasion and the setting.

  • Richard, another Canuck

    I wish the ‘Davids’, all the happiness and joy they so deserve and have earned.

    Congratulations, Davids! And thanks for fighting the good fight!

  • Dot Beech

    It can’t be easy to be gay and live in Kentucky. These guys are bona fide heroes.

  • teeveedub

    We all owe this couple a lot for having been put through the amount of completely unnecessary turmoil they faced.

    Congratulations, gents, and may the remainder of your lives together be free of any more bullshit like Kim … uh … What was her name again?

    • skrekk

      I’m a straight guy with a gay kid. Every time one of these folks stands up and defends their rights I have to thank them on behalf of my family, just like I have to thank Mildred and Richard Loving for defending the right of my wife and I to marry.

      I hope the court orders the licenses to be reissued correctly to all these couples, but if I were these guys I’d also keep the license mangled by Kim Davis as a souvenir of theocracy.

    They’re looking SO much better out of that office. Congratulations!

  • ColdCountry

    That little flower girl is about the cutest thing going! And I love the former landlady with her: “… and no I don’t understand it, but it’s not my business, either.”

    Have a wonderful life guys!

    • TuuxKabin

      She would make a wonderful replacement for [the county clerk whose name shall not be uttered on David and David’s wedding day]. Imagine walking into that office and being treated with respect, courtesy, kindness and intelligence.

      • ColdCountry

        What a lovely idea!

    I’ll say it again, we always have love on our side and all the other side has is their hate. I used to feel sad for the hateful bigots but I’m older now and refuse to give a shit about them. Boys have a happy loved filled future.
