Kim Davis, a Kentucky county clerk who ignited a national controversy in 2015 for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, writes of “furious, fist-pounding, homosexual men” in an upcoming book.

“Kim chronicles her dramatic encounters with furious, fist-pounding, homosexual men and the hate mail that flooded her office,” a description of the book says, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader

According to the description of Davis’s new book, “Under God’s Authority: The Kim Davis Story,” the Rowan County, Ky., clerk details her “unlikely saga” and touches on the “disastrous same-sex ‘marriage’ opinion.” 


Davis was jailed for five days in 2015 by a federal judge for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses following the Supreme Court’s decision on Obergefell v. Hodges that allowed for same-sex marriage.

The clerk, who is up for reelection this year, will be challenged by one of the men whom she denied a marriage license in 2015.

David Ermold is one of four Democrats seeking the nomination to challenge Davis for the clerk job. He aims to “restore professional leadership, fairness and responsibility” by taking her seat, according to his website.

Davis’s book also features a foreword from former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R), a vocal critic of the landmark Supreme Court case who welcomed Davis when she was released from jail in 2015.
