I think many of you have already heard the story of Kentucky's Rowan County clerk Kim Davis who refused to issue marriage licenses to same-gender couples after the Supreme Court ruling told her she had to do so, then the Governor told her to do her job, then a Federal judge told her to do her job, and the Federal Supreme Court denied her appeal to refuse such requests due to "religious freedom" citing her Christian faith. She has had every opportunity to resign (in Kentucky the position is elected so she can't be fired or moved to another position), and has refused to do the job she was elected to do. She is now in jail for contempt of court, and I do not pity her at all.
You know it wasn't long ago that in the American South that a marriage like my own was considered to be a cultural no-no, and that there were laws on the books that prevented marriages between Caucasians and other races. And the same people who made/supported the law thumped their Bibles, and protested the Supreme Court which made those laws no longer enforceable. Imagine if the Spartanburg county clerk told me and Daisy that she would not give us a marriage license? The 14th amendment guarantees all citizens equal treatment under the law, and what Kim Davis is doing is the reverse. While the conservative Christians are "standing with her", the rational side of America must realize that such behavior by government officials can not be tolerated. I don't care if Kim Davis is in jail or not, but the one place she should not be is behind a government desk that is suppose to serve the people.
