That's right, Kim Davis, is a God-fearing Democrat. Seems like a endangered species these days, but yes, apparently they do exist. Yet, her politics didn't spare her from the wrath of not fulfilling the will of the LGBT mafia.
A federal judge sent Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis to jail Thursday for contempt of court after she testified that her religious beliefs against same-sex marriage made it impossible for her to comply with his order to resume issuing marriage licenses.
"Today, for the first time in American history, an American citizen has been incarcerated for having the belief and conscience that marriage is a union of one man and one woman," Gannam said.
Following Davis' logic, Bunning said, a Catholic county clerk could refuse to give a marriage license to a divorced applicant without proof that the previous marriage was annulled, as church doctrine requires.
Well, since this judge feels it important to jail this person over such an disgusting non-violent crime of following the will of the voters who elected her, perhaps it needs to be said where Bunning is misguided.
If that Catholic county clerk were to deny marriage licenses based upon divorce, a straw man argument that I'll entertain, would be within their jurisdiction to do so long as they hold office. Doing something as ridiculous as blocking licenses over divorce would be something so far out of the mainstream, that it wouldn't be surprising to see that clerk lose in the next immediate election. The power, and right, of the voters to adjust our laws is part of self governance inherit in our Constitution.
In this case, the overwhelming majority of Judeo-Christians do not recognize same-sex marriage. It's an overwhelming position supported not just by religious faith, but scientific knowledge of procreation in the interests of the State.
At the end of the day, Kim Davis works not for "the Government," but for the people of Rowan county. The people of Rowan are the one's signing her check, who have put her in power, and it's their right and obligation to determine if that is the representation they want.
The Supreme Court, according to the Constitution, does not make law - it makes rulings. The power to make law lies in Congress.
All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.http://www.usconstitution.net/xconst_A1Sec1.html
So Kim Davis's objection to a ruling is perfectly legitimate. The laws of the States, of Nature, of procreation, of yes, G-d, can not be changed by the whims of the Courts, only in fevered dreams. It takes a man and woman to make a baby, and there is no amount of prison time any judge can proscribe that will change that.
Sending Kim Davis to jail has only helped shed light on the abuse of power of the current Judicial branch. How it has given itself authority to dictate what the Constitution means, and now how it will use it to bully it's opposition.
As people of faith, we know that this won't last. We have been here before. We have overcome worse. This is only the beginning of our struggle.
