Kim Davis was holding fast to her beliefs. Good for her. I’m proud of her. I think that if you believe in something you should stick to it. Unfortunately, you also need to think about your job choices. If you don’t belief in violence, you probably shouldn’t be a Navy Seal. Kim Davis should have known that gay marriage was going to be the law of the land. I could see the writing on the wall. Why couldn’t she? She should have had a plan. Her plan shouldn’t be to defy the law of the land. Instead, she should have held a press conference and stated her beliefs and then resigned.
Look, this isn’t an attack on Christianity. It simply isn’t. This is an attack on someone who has decided to defy the law. If you break the law you go to jail. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said, “Kim Davis in federal custody removes all doubts about the criminalization of Christianity in this country.” This is simply wrong. The statement is wrong. I’m a Christian and I don’t feel under attack.
When you sit back and look at the Bible, I mean really study the Bible, Jesus is telling us to take care of the poor. He is telling us to love our neighbors. He is telling us to love and obey God. If you read the Bible and think one of the most important tenets of Jesus’ teachings has to do with gay marriage, you have read the Bible incorrectly. Read it again. There are at most four or five passages that may have something to do with gay marriage or homosexuality. (Personally, I don’t think that any of those passages have squat to do with homosexuality. I think that the passages have to do with obeying God.) If you are Christian then you believe that Jesus came to earth to clarify the Old Testament. When you look at the red words… the words of Jesus, what did he say about homosexuality? Nothing. Zero. Zip. Nada. I rest my case.
Ms. Davis needs to resign. She has become a hero to the Right. She can join Sarah Palin on the lecture circuit.
