kentucky kim davis bigoted intolerant
Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis has been awarded with the ultimate Christmas gift by Republican state Governor, Matt Bevin.
Because, what more could a hateful, God bothered homophobe hope and pray for, than to be bestowed the right to be bigoted and intolerant of others’ right to equality in this fair land?
As Popdust previously reported, the 50-year-old shot into the media spotlight earlier this year when she was caught on camera refusing to issue a marriage license to a gay couple.
Davis, who has been married four times herself, claimed her religious beliefs prevented her from carrying out the duties of her clearly defined role as a county clerk, in addition to following the law of the land—and she fought tooth and nail for the right to deny others their rights.
“I never imagined a day like this would come, where I would be asked to violate a central teaching of Scripture and of Jesus Himself regarding marriage,” Davis said of her decision—perhaps a little confused as to who she is actually employed by.
“To issue a marriage license which conflicts with God’s definition of marriage, with my name affixed to the certificate, would violate my conscience.”
Well, not doing so clearly also violates U.S. law, and, as she is employed by the U.S. government it’s pretty much part and parcel of her job to FOLLOW that law.
Given the situation, lesser bigoted folk may have backed down, perhaps even considered resigning from the aforementioned job, if they were truly suffering a divine crisis of conscience that prevented from doing that job—but, oh no! Not Davis!
She vowed to fight on, and fight on she did, with some help from fellow bigoted haters such as The Family Research Council, who branded her “courageous and heroic”, and Republican douches Rand Paul and Mike Huckabee, among others.
Davis even went to jail rather than comply with the law and do her job, and has continued to refuse to add her name to any marriage licenses that have been granted to same-sex couples in Rowan County.
But now, her fight is over, and Davis emerges victorious from her gallant battle, all thanks to Kentucky’s newly elected Governor.
Bevin wasted no time in keeping his campaign promise to Davis, issuing an executive order on Tuesday to circumvent state law, allowing marriage licenses in Kentucky to be issued without the name and signature of the county clerk included.
“To ensure that the sincerely held religious beliefs of all Kentuckians are honored, Executive Order 2015-048 directs the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives to issue a revised marriage license form to the offices of all Kentucky county clerks. The name of the county clerk is no longer required to appear on the form,” Bevins’ office said in a statement.
It’s a Christmas miracle—and nothing, but nothing, embodies the true spirit of Christmas like bigotry, injustice and hatred.
Guess Davis and Bevins were absent from Bible class on the day they covered Galatians 5:14
For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
