Kentucky clerk now fighting gay marriage in Romania

(AP) — A Kentucky clerk who refused to issue marriage license to same-sex couples has taken her crusade to Romania.

In a news release, a Florida-based conservative Christian organization says that Kim Davis is visiting the Central European country this week to support a nationwide effort to explicitly ban gay marriage.

The Liberty Counsel says more than 3 million Romanians have signed a petition to have their constitution define marriage as a union between one man and one woman. The country already does not allow same-sex marriage, but Davis and others want the language to be clearer.

Davis spent five days in jail in 2015 for refusing a judge's order that she issue the licenses to gay couples shortly after a U.S. Supreme Court decision effectively legalized same-sex marriage nationwide.
