Kim Davis’ new book details fight against ‘fist-pounding, homosexual men’ seeking marriage licenses

Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who garnered headlines in 2015 for denying same-sex couples marriage licenses in defiance of a Supreme Court ruling, is writing a book.

“Kim chronicles her dramatic encounters with furious, fist-pounding, homosexual men and the hate mail that flooded her office,” reads a (now deleted) product description of the book, “Under God’s Authority: The Kim Davis Story.”

“Kim takes you behind-the-scenes of the unlikely saga that took America by storm in 2015. She tells how God transformed her life in 2011, why she almost retired in 2014, and how she knew–six months before the U.S. Supreme Court’s disastrous 2015 same-sex “marriage” opinion–she was headed for jail.”

An updated product description available Wednesday morning had removed the language about “fist-pounding, homosexual men."

The book is being sold by an organization called Liberty Counsel, the group that defended Davis during her 2015 legal battle. The book was also co-written by the organization’s founder and chairman, Mat Staver, and creative director John Aman, and according to the Lexington Herald-Leader, the proceeds will go to Liberty Counsel.

The book comes with a suggested cost of $25.

Davis, who is still the clerk of Kentucky’s Rowan County, was popular in conservative circles for refusing to grant marriage licenses to same-sex couples despite the Supreme Court ruling in Obergefell s. Hodges. She briefly went to jail over the issue and received support at the time from major national figures, including former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.
