Kentucky clerk biking across state to support colleague

Casey County Clerk Casey Davis has begun a bike ride across Kentucky to bring attention to the circumstances of Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis, who has refused to issue marriage licenses, despite an order from a federal appeals court that upheld a judge’s directive to issue the licenses.
    
Kim Davis has cited her Christian belief against gay marriages and declared she would refuse licenses to all couples, gay or straight, despite a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that legalized gay marriage.
    
A statement from The Family Foundation says Casey Davis set off at 4:30 a.m. in Pikeville in the eastern part of the state and plans to ride to Paducah, in the western part of the state. According to Google maps, it would take 44 hours to cycle from Pikeville to Paducah, which is 461 miles.
    
"I cannot let my sister go to jail without my doing something to let others know about her plight," Casey said in the statement.
    
Although the two are not related by blood, The Family Foundation says they are bonded by religious conviction.
    
Casey Davis says Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear should do more to protect religious liberties.
