Kentucky Clerk Jailed After Refusing Marriage Licences to the Gay Community [VIDEO]
I love and believe in God, and always have. However, I quit going to church a while back because I was sick and tired of human beings, who claim to be Christians, bending and twisting the word of the Lord for their benefit. In fact, the last church I attended lost me as a member when some other members of the congregation were hell-bent on overthrowing the pastor... just because she was a woman.
Now there's this idiot in Kentucky who is blatantly refusing to do her job of issuing marriage licences, because it conflicts with her beliefs. I won't argue with this woman, or anyone else about their opinions and beliefs. We all should maintain a decent level of respect as far as that goes. But when you can't do your job because it conflicts with what you believe, quit! Simple as that! What gives this woman the right to refuse a government service, when the government is signing her check?
Government officials are free to disagree with the law, but not disobey it.
Well that idiot, Kim Davis, is behind bars this afternoon in contempt of court. Kerry B. Harvey is one of the United States attourneys working on the case, and he insisted that Davis do her job and stay within the confines of the law. Harvey released this statement: “Government officials are free to disagree with the law, but not disobey it. The county clerk has presented her position through the federal court system, all of the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. It is time for the clerk and the county to follow the law.”
I am all about respecting an individual's beliefs, but these self-righteous morons who can't let go of the bigotry, racism, and hatred that has littered American history since its birth in 1776 can rot in jail as far as I'm concerned. We need to be more accepting of each other and find a way to co-exist. People like Kim Davis are going the wrong way!
