Weighing in on Same-Sex Marriage Discrimination

On September 3, 2015, Kim Davis, a Kentucky county clerk was jailed after a judge found her in contempt of court for her refusal to issue same-sex marriage licenses.  U.S. District Judge David Bunning stated Davis could be released from federal custody if she complied with the order to resume issuing licenses in the county. Davis had refused to issue marriage licenses to anyone, arguing her conscience would not allow her to do so, as it was against her religious beliefs, even though she had been ordered to do so as a result of an earlier Supreme Court ruling.

There are three elements of a prudent plan for the future: Living Will, Durable Power Of Attorney and Last Will & Testament.
