I am re-blogging our friends new post, but I want to attach my comment along with it.
I disagree with Vlad. Mrs. Davis is NOT violating the law. Her State has a law on the books forbidding her to issue marriage licenses to homosexuals. So she is upholding the law.
The ones in the wrong here are the Supreme Court for finding something that they know does not exist — especially in the 14th Amendment. Gays have equal protection under the law already. They have as much right to marry a person of the opposite sex as the rest of us, so SCOTUS has bastardized the law with its ruling — period! Which means that the judge who jailed Mrs. Davis had a duty to refuse to enforce the SCOTUS ruling (principle of lesser magistrates and separation of powers). So he is just as lawless as SCOTUS.
The reason our society does not see this is because we have become lawless, ourselves.
To catch everyone up: a Kentucky County Clerk, Kim Davis, was found in contempt of court for her refusal to issue marriage licenses to a gay couple, and jailed. Ms. Davis refused A court order to comply with the law. The judge cited her for contempt of court, because he couldn’t fire her from her job. The judge offered to let her remain free if she gave her deputies permission to sign the certificates instead. Ms. Davis refused.
The problem is this: Kim Davis (while legally wrong) is doing something she sincerely believes is core to her faith, and to do otherwise would constitute a violation of deeply held values. When the judge gave her the option to allow her deputies to issue marriage licenses, she said “My conscience will not allow it, God’s moral law convicts me and conflicts with my duties.”
That is not hatred. She does not hate gay people.
