Neither The Democratic Party Nor Kim Davis’s One Gay Friend Will Miss Her Much
Kim Davis claimed in an interview with “Good Morning America” that she does, in fact, have gay friends — whose application for a marriage license she turned down — but it’s looking like maybe she doesn’t have any gay friends anymore. The Daily Beast caught up with Dallas Black, a gay Morehead, KY, resident who says that the Kim Davis he was acquainted with was “the kind, sweet person who was there when my mom passed away.”
Now, though, he doesn’t recognize her. “I don’t know this woman I’ve been seeing,” he said. “I somewhat feel like she is taking this to an extreme, because she didn’t become a Christian until four years ago.” Black says he spoke with Davis a few days after she started making the news about how they’re going to remain friends after this whole frenzy, but he’s not hopeful about their friendship going forward.
Meanwhile, Davis has declared that she’s switching from the Democratic to the Republican party, which should surprise just about zero people. She told Reuters, “My husband and I had talked about it for quite a while and we came to the conclusion that the Democratic Party left us a long time ago, so why were we hanging on?” Ah, yes, she’s been left behind. Does this conjure an image for anyone else of a pouting kid on the playground, staring at their shoes and kicking at dirt?
But that’s all right, she can go ahead. She’s right, Democrats won’t miss her. Apparently Dallas Black won’t miss her too much either — he said that although he can tolerate and embrace people with homophobic views, the only people he’ll be inviting to his wedding are the people who support same-sex marriage.
