Kentucky Governor Orders County Clerks' Names Will Be Removed From Marriage Licenses!

The governor wants to make sure all religious beliefs are being honored.

Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin is making some changes after that whole Kim Davis controversy.

On Tuesday, the Republican official issued an executive order that says county clerks' names are no longer required to appear on marriage documents.

The 48-year-old brought about the policy change so he could make sure that the "sincerely held religious beliefs of all Kentuckians are honored."

When Kim first refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, she claimed she was breaking the law because providing those documents goes against her religion.

And since the 50-year-old returned to her position following her arrest, sources say she's been altering the licenses so that her name and county don't appear on the papers because she believes that would be a form of endorsement.

So now, the newly-elected governor hopes that removing those names will resolve the religious hesitation.

However, the American Civil Liberties Union of Kentucky is not happy about this order. The Union — which represented couples whose licenses were initially denied — thinks this decision will only make things more confusing.

How is this still an issue with 2016 nearly here?!

The Arkansas Supreme Court decided late last week to temporarily block a lower court's ruling on allowing same-sex parents to be named on their child's birth certificates.

It all started back on December 1, when three same-sex couples won a court battle in front of Little Rock Circuit Court Judge Tim Fox to allow their names to be placed on their children's birth certificates — so long, Judge Fox deemed, as they were married before the birth.

But the state of Arkansas appealed the ruling, arguing it conflicted with state laws, and now the Arkansas Supreme Court has once again blocked same-sex couples from both being listed on the child's birth certificate.

In their opinion, the court stated:

Bill Cosby Will Face A Deposition For Playboy Underage Sexual Assault Case

no title

Bill Cosby's legal issues are only getting worse!

As we reported earlier this year, a judge ruled that the comedian CANNOT dismiss a sexual assault lawsuit filed by Judy Huth, who claims that the actor committed the crime against her when she was just 15-years-old.

Fast forward to now, the case is moving forward.

On Wednesday, the Cosby star's request to review the civil suit was denied by the California Supreme Court.

This means that the alleged victim and her lawyer Gloria Allred can now proceed with litigation.

In case you didn't know, Huth claims the thespian molested her in a bedroom of the Playboy Mansion in 1974. She asserts that the performer forced the then teenager to perform a "sex act on [him] without her consent."

The ordeal has caused her "severe and extreme emotional distress."

Allred not only calls this a "major victory", she hopes to have the deposition within the next month.

Cosby maintains his innocence.

We just hope justice will be brought down on those responsible.
