Davis remains free to prac­tice her Apos­tolic Chris­t­ian beliefs. She may con­tin­ue to attend church twice a week, par­tic­i­pate in Bible Study and min­is­ter to female inmates at the Rowan Coun­ty Jail. She is even free to believe that mar­riage is a union between one man and one woman, as many Amer­i­cans do.
