“Star Trek” actor and Internet darling George Takei has some choice words for Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis and her followers — and needless to say, they aren't kind words.
To recap: Davis was jailed last week after a Kentucky judge found her guilty of contempt for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Because Davis, who is an elected official, cannot be removed from office until the end of her official term, Judge David L. Bunning ordered she be held until willing to comply with the state law.
Yesterday, however, Davis was released from jail and reinstated as County Clerk under the condition that she follow the law. The provisions of her release, as ordered by Judge Bunning, are as follows:
Despite the fact that Davis's tirade against same-sex couples angered and people across the country, many gathered to celebrate her release. The rally, attended by those in support of Davis' views (including Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee) was described by Takei as a “circus.”
In a lengthy Facebook post, the actor and activist wrote,
Mr. Takei, we couldn't have said it better (or more politely) ourselves.
