Liberalism, Religion and a Hypocrite!

Where do I even start with this one?

Lets get a few facts straight about the hero of the religious right Kim Davis, who was jailed for not wanting to marry homosexuals.

1. Although marriage seems to be her hobby, Davis wouldn’t let straight couples marry either
This case has its roots in June’s U.S. Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, which ruled that the 14th amendment gives same-sex couples the right to marry. Since that decision, Davis has refused to issue marriage licenses not only to gay couples but to straight couples as well.
On August 12 a judge ordered her to issue licenses,  a ruling she has continued to ignore.

The 6th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court have both denied her appeals.
2. She has been married 4 times
Davis has been married four times to three different men and had twins with #3 while married to #1 
This is a mess:
  • After divorcing her first husband of 10 years, she had twins 5 months later; the twins were fathered by the man who would become her third husband.
  • When she married her second husband, he adopted the twins.
  • Davis and her second husband divorced 10 years later.
  • She then married the father of her children, a union that lasted less than a year.
  • She remarried her second husband in 2009, and miraculously they are still together.

3. Davis says she is deeply religious
After the death of her mother-in-law four years ago, Davis went to The Apostolic Church, which follows a “literal interpretation of the Bible."  Where she claims to have found "Forgiveness."

In a statement she said: “I am not perfect. No one is,” she said in her statement. “But I am forgiven, and I love my Lord and must be obedient to Him and to the Word of God.”  

I do agree Muslims do get away with a lot more than what Christians get away with, but two wrongs don't make a right.  I have a feeling that in this case, the book and movie deal will be very fruitful.........

Update: As of 10am pst this morning her contempt order has been lifted and has been released from jail.  I am sad to report that Ted Cruz and Mike Huckabee, who were going to visit her in jail today, will both be missing the chance of becoming "lucky" #5.
