The second and fourth husband of Kim Davis (the Rowan County, Kentucky clerk who refuses to issue licenses for same-sex marriage) has made clear that the main reason his wife will not comply with federal law is the two of them are bigots. “[I’m] an old redneck hillbilly,” said Joe Davis, the clerk’s husband. “They want us to accept their beliefs and their ways, but they won’t accept our beliefs and our ways.” Despite Kim’s unabashed support of “traditional marriage,” she has been married four times.
At age 18, Kim married Dwain Wallace and divorced him in 1994. Two years later, she married Joe Davis for the first time, but then divorced in 2006. In 2007, she married Thomas McIntyre, and that marriage lasted less than a year. She remarried Davis in 2009.
Right-wing Christians, who swear that they uphold the sanctity of marriage, often fall short while dictating how others should live their lives. Davis falls in the same category as Josh Duggar in that regard.
