From ABC News: "Kentucky's Rowan County Court Clerk, Kimberly Davis, is still refusing to issue marriage licenses to any couple today, including same-sex couples, despite the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling against her last night, and now a motion for contempt of court has been filed against her."
Well guess what, sister? Your religious beliefs end at the entrance to your place of employment.
And if you don't like that, you need to find another place to work.
The First Amendment gives you the right to PRACTICE your religion without government interference, NOT enforce your religious beliefs on others, especially through a government agency. And if you can't handle that, Ms. Davis, you need to resign your position or get your behind fired for failure to perform the duties of your office. Sadly, as an elected official (and just who are the voters of Rowan County putting in positions of authority these days anyway?), you can't be fired without an act of the Governor, and hopefully that will come soon enough. But until then, maybe a few days or weeks in the hoosegow will allow you to educate yourself on how the government you allegedly represent actually works.
My suggestion: Leave the Bible at home, and bring a copy of the U.S. Constitution to pass your time in stir.
Sadly, being the 1st Amendment, it shouldn't take you too long to figure out that your incredibly stupid and ultimately hopeless stance is all wrong. You see, Congress has passed no law establishing a national religion, nor has it passed any laws preventing YOU from practicing your religious beliefs. You DO know the difference between "practicing" and "enforcing", don't you, Ms. Davis? No matter, you'll be getting a first hand lesson in what "enforcement" means when you're staring at three cement walls and a set of bars.
And by the way, you'll find that your cell mates aren't quite the upstanding members of the community you're used to associating with, either. Their idea of "Praising Jesus" is when a new fish enters the Big House, and they have a chance to indoctrinate you into their own religion sect - The Church of the Painful Rat Pack (see: slang jailhouse terms).
I predict your prayers will go unanswered.
Next time, be sure that principled stance of yours is backed up by the law, because they don't allow sanitizing wipes to be brought in by Fresh Meat.
