This CNN article claims that Kim Davis has been divorced three times.

The Kentucky county clerk who has refused to issue same-sex marriage licenses for religious reasons despite a Supreme Court ruling has been divorced three times, according to court documents.

It seems like it would get more play in the media if it were really true. Is it?

  • Does the person belong to a denomination that considers divorce to be a sin (like Roman Catholic)? – user5341 Sep 11 '15 at 18:53

    @user5341 - Kim Davis is a member of a fundamentalist Christian church. The New Testament specifically forbids remarriage after divorce (while it says nothing about gay marriage, or even homosexuality in general). – Daniel R Hicks Sep 12 '15 at 1:42

  • @user5341 Matthew 5:31-32, among others. – Daniel R Hicks Sep 16 '15 at 20:36
  • I was asking for a citation that a specific fundamentalist denomination she's a member of considers divorce and/or remarriage to be a sin. Not impossible, but that seems to be a rarer case for non-Catholics – user5341 Sep 17 '15 at 14:51
