"Under God's authority," is the reason Kentucky clerk Kim Davis continued to refuse to issue any marriage licenses today.

Hours after the Supreme Court refused to intervene on her behalf, Davis met with one gay couple and told them she would still not issue marriage licenses because of her religious convictions.

The clerk has not issued any marriage licenses since the marriage equality Supreme Court ruling in June. And her battle through the courts has drawn a national audience.

"I've asked you all to leave. You are interrupting my business," Davis is heard saying before walking back into her office.

After the blood-boiling encounter, lawyers for the same-sex couple who originally sued Davis filed a motion to find her in contempt of court. The motions seeks fines and not jail time.

Just a reminder: Kim Davis has been married four times. Just let that sink in.

Chick-fil-A has promised that its WinShape Foundation will quit funding socially conservative groups that oppose gay marriage, according to Chicago advocacy group the Civil Rights Agenda:

In meetings the company executives clarified that they will no longer give to anti-gay organizations, such as Focus on the Family and the National Organization for Marriage.

Seems like great news, except for one small detail: NOM president Brian Brown says, "WinShape never gave to us."

Too bad -- guess we'll have to hear it straight from the chicken's beak.

Maryland state delegate Emmett C. Burns, Jr. recently sent a letter to Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti, in an attempt to discourage linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo's support of a state ballot initiative that would legalize gay marriage.

The letter didn't sit well with Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe, who unleashed an all-out, expletive-laden blitz attacking Mr. Burns' proclivities:

If gay marriage becomes legal, are you worried that all of a sudden you'll start thinking about penis? "Oh sh*t. Gay marriage just passed. Gotta get me some of that hot dong action!" Will all of your friends suddenly turn gay and refuse to come to your Sunday Ticket grill-outs? (Unlikely, since gay people enjoy watching football too.)

Conservative group One Million Moms is at it again, directing its not-quite-a-million members to boycott Marvel and DC Comics due to recent announcements from both companies about their futures of their gay characters.

DC has revealed that a major character is soon going to come out as gay, while Marvel announced the engagement of superhero Northstar to his boyfriend, Kyle.

These events don't sit will with One Million Moms, whose anti-gay agenda has also led them to protest the wedding of Archie Comics' first gay character, Kevin Keller.

"Children desire to be just like superheroes," said the group in a statement. "Children mimic superhero actions and even dress up in costumes to resemble these characters as much as possible. Can you imagine little boys saying, 'I want a boyfriend or husband like X-Men?'"

The statement goes on to accuse the publishers of trying to "indoctrate [sic] impressionable young minds."

Marvel and DC have yet to respond to the homophobic comments.
