Kim Davis, the US clerk who shot to prominence when she refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, has taken her views to Romania.

The European country is moving towards holding a referendum on whether same-sex marriage should be ruled illegal.

She has travelled to Romania with the Liberty Counsel, a right-wing Christian law group defined as an anti-LGBT hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Centre.

Davis is giving speeches all over the country and holding meetings with high-ranking officials in the Orthodox Church, which is calling for a ban on same-sex marriage.

Along with the hate group, she is also meeting members of Parliament and spreading homophobic rhetoric through local media outlets.

Davis is using her time in prison as a warning that failing to cut off the possibility of same-sex marriage would result in the return of communist-style restrictions and attacks on religion.

She has been accompanied by Harry Mihet, vice president of legal affairs for the hate group.

Mihet, who was born in Romania, said: “I am so glad for this amazing opportunity to finally introduce Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis personally to my Romanian people,” according to LGBTQ Nation.

“Her story resonates loudly with them, and they are receiving her tearfully and very warmly, because they can still remember the not-so-long-ago days when they were themselves persecuted and imprisoned for their conscience,” he continued.

“The freedom of conscience transcends national, cultural, religious and denominational lines, and Romanians are determined to prevent such injustice from ever happening again in their country.”
