Religion can never play a role at any level of government for this very reason...
Kentucky's Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis doesn't think the constitution trumps god's word... She has decided to ignore the U.S. Supreme Court ruling declaring the constitutionality of same-sex marriages by not issuing same-sex couples licenses.
What is this mad woman's reason for such stupidity? Christian fanaticism. That's exactly what this train wreck is practicing. Worse is that she's using her position in local government to impose the laws of God, not man.
This woman should not only be held in contempt, she should be fired. She should get no severance pay or pension package and never be allowed to work a government job ever again. And I think that's getting off easy.
This mammoth moron is a born again Christian, who found god only 4 years ago after a life of "sin", as she put it.
I can't imagine what this woman has done in her life that she needed Gods help and forgiveness. Whatever it was she was forgiven and accepted by a group of people under God. Why can't she find it in her heart to do the same for another person or group? Does God not accept a good person who serves, protects, teaches and spreads positivity because he or she is gay?
The bible is used so negatively and it's right in everyone's face, yet it's never mentioned. Lately, it seems like the tool that bans eternal happiness for a human being. I thought Christianity was about acceptance, forgiveness and love, but it doesn't feel like that.
Kim Davis' "devotion" is so strong that she has to break the law just to deny good people true happiness.
Two other blind wanderers have joined the delusional Debbie Downer and they're also refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples.
One extremely deranged individual is Casey Davis, a clerk in Casey County. He's decided to take to the road on his bike and ride across the state to protest the courts' demands that the licenses be granted.
The second angry worshiper is Kay Schwartz, the Whitley County clerk. Schwartz said, "clerks are being bullied by the federal government."
I'll admit that the federal government overplays its hand way too often, but this is one of those times where it's not only acceptable, it's needed.
The president of the United States didn't threaten clerks with drone strikes to hand out marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
The issue was brought to the supreme court. Both sides argued their cases and one side won.
There is nothing left to discuss. There's an appeal process I am sure, but that doesn't mean that the law doesn't exist in the present.
If a group of people decided murder should be legal and brought their case before the supreme court it wouldn't give everyone a license to slaughter each other while the case was being heard.
In fact, marriage licenses were not issued during or before the case was to be presented.
This should have never been an issue anyway...
People will argue that gay marriage is unconstitutional, but that same article also considered Africans a white man's property. Suffice it to say, times are a little different now. Those old laws don't apply in modern society. Although I believe some should.
As time passes things change. Some things change for the worse and thankfully others for better.
Now, in this case, for better or worse is mentioned in a courtroom or a Judge's chambers. It does not have to be said in the house of god anymore. Besides, no matter who marries you it means nothing till you have a license from the state saying you're legally married.
Allowing gay couples to marry is the right thing to do. I say if they want to be as miserable as the rest of us, so be it.
Seriously though, it's not right that a percentage of the population can't live out their lives with the person they love because the state won't accept it over it's religious beliefs.
It's pretty disgusting and embarrassing to me, as an American that such a hypocritically dysfunctional institution has this kind of power. The Christian right were the ones who fought this from happening. They lobbied for this not to be law. Men of faith, with good souls. Compassionate and forgiving men. Maybe if the rule applied to legal underage same-sex acceptance things would be different.
I'm sorry for the low blow, but my head is spinning over this whole thing right now.
At the end of the day, the heart wants what the heart wants.
If two people want to be together for the rest of their lives and are going to stay loyal and love each other unconditionally, then that's good enough for me. In fact, it's also good enough for the supreme court.
Besides, that whole "holy sacred vow" thing doesn't really mean much when heterosexual couples' divorce rate is in the gutter.
