Kim Davis Takes Struggle Against Gay Marriage To Another Theater In Romania

Updated On 15 Oct, 2017 Published On

Kim Davis took her fight against the marriage between same-sex, beyond the borders of her native Kentucky- far beyond even U.S. shores.

The Rowan County clerk, who went to prison briefly in 2015 after she defied a U.S. federal court order to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, headed to Romania last week to drive for a change to the country's constitution.

The change would make clear the definition of marriage from "between spouses" to a sharper delineation of genders. In 2002, the homosexuality was fully decriminalized in in Romania and now the civil code already has specified that marriage is a legal union between a man and a woman.

Last year, a massively popular petition called for a referendum that would cement the ban on same-sex marriage. The referendums still need the final approval of the country's lawmakers to move forward.

Kim has embarked on a nine-day visit supporting the campaign, joined by Harry Mihet of Liberty Counsel, which is the conservative legal group that represented her during her 2015 legal fight.

According to the group, the trip includes meetings with archbishops in the predominantly Orthodox Christian country, speaking engagements and stops in the capital, Bucharest, as well as several other cities.
