"This lawsuit is frivolous."
A man who wants to marry his laptop has filed a federal lawsuit against Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis for denying the issue him a marriage license.
According to the Liberty Council, Mark "Chris" Sevier, the plaintiff, has also filed lawsuits against Gov. Matt Bevin and Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear.

Davis first made headlines last year when she denied to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, and now Sevier is out to make a point about marriage.
The Vanderbilt Law School graduate is trying to prove to the embattled clerk that marriage between same-sex couples bears the same legitimacy as a marriage between humans and inanimate objects. It is important to note, Sevier's law license was revoked in 2011.
"This lawsuit is frivolous," Liberty Council founder and chairman Mat Staver said. "There is obviously no right for a man to marry a machine. When you make gender irrelevant to a gender-based relationship, you open Pandora's box and make a mockery out of marriage."
As it turns out, this is not the first time Sevier is attempted to marry an object.
He filed similar lawsuits in Florida and Texas, where he sued the governor, the attorney general and a county clerk earlier this year, according to the Houston Press.
According to USA Today, the Florida case was thrown out, noting the 24-page document that suggested Sevier is against gay marriage and wanted to make the point that if gay couples "have the right to marry their object of sexual desire, even if they lack corresponding sexual parts, then I should have the right to marry my preferred sexual object."
Sevier is determined to prove that marriage between a man and a woman can justify any sort of marriage, to include a union between a man and a machine.
He is trying to prove that the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage — Obergefell v. Hodges — allows people to marry whomever or whatever they are attracted to.
