Internet is exploding with funny memes about the Kentucky clerk who refuses to issue marriage licenses

You've probably heard about Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who was refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, citing her religious beliefs.

When Davis' appeal to the United States Supreme Court was denied and she still refused to do her job and issue the licenses, Davis was called before a federal court judge on charges of willful contempt. The parties petitioning for Davis to be found in contempt requested she only be fined, but after hearing Davis' testimony and her attorney's representation to the court that she refused to allow other members of her staff to issue the licenses, the court ruled that Davis should be incarcerated until she agrees to issue the licenses.

From the moment Davis was escorted out the courtroom by marshals, the Internet has been having a field day making light of the situation, because when someone is trying to hide behind the Constitution while refusing to respect the legal process set forth in it, laughing is preferable to screaming in frustration at your screen. Here are some of the funniest memes about Davis around.

Saw this on a friend's timeline and got a good laugh out of it.

Anyone who's been married four times and wants to judge someone else's marriage is a hypocrite.

It's a fair question.
