Media focus on same-sex marriages


In the United States, same-sex marriages has become legal nationwide since June 26, 2015. In some areas, however, it’s still unaccepted. Kim Davis, who’s a county clerk in Kentucky, stands her ground about same-sex marriages. Davis was earlier arrested for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples because of her religious objection.

The issue has become a major national news media story, with coverage from all angles. Journalists have gone to cover Davis in Kentucky, have looked at legal issues from the perspective of the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., and have gone on the campaign trail to talk to candidates for president about the issue. The coverage during the past several weeks has brought this social issue to the top of the public agenda.

Regardless of all the attention, same sex marriages should not be anyone’s issue but the couple’s regardless of the situation Davis has with her religion it shall not matter what her belief is, because her beliefs may not seem accurate to someone else. Now in society things are different.

Davis returned back to work and as she arrived she was greeted by a lot of television cameras and escorted by state police officers as she approached the crowed with a speech she prepared.

“I am no hero,” she stated. “I’m just a person that’s been transformed by the grace of God, who wants to work, be with my family. I just want to serve my neighbors quietly without violating my conscience.”
