For twenty seven years Kim Davis has been the clerk for Rowan county Kentucky. One of her many jobs has been to issue and sign marriage licenses. She has never autographed a license for a same-sex couple, even after the Supreme Court of the land issued their approval of the unions in June. Ms. Davis has refused to cooperate based on her Christian faith and belief that she would be disobeying Scripture to become involved with homosexual marriages.
Today Davis and her staff were in court again, being ordered to obey a previous judge’s ruling to issue same-sex licenses. If Davis does not submit by tomorrow contempt of court charges may be filed against her, and she may be arrested.
Another news tidbit was released today, that Kim Davis may actually be a- hang on to your hats- HYPOCRITE! Oh the horror! The sodomites and sexually perverted hate hypocricy most of all! (How many exclamation points is too many?)
It seems that indeed Kim Davis has been divorced three times, and married four. How then can she possibly claim to be on the Lord’s side? That’s an interesting question and deserves a thorough answer.
It seems that one of Kim’s mother-in-laws was a godly woman who never stopped witnessing to her about Jesus. Four years ago, after this woman passed away, Kim went to church…and received forgiveness from that same Jesus!
Far from being a hypocrite, Kim doesn’t claim to be perfect. But she does claim, “I am forgiven and I love my Lord and must be obedient to Him and the Word of God.”
It would seem that this sincere county clerk, who claims to be on God’s side, may soon be one of this generation’s first “casualties” in the battle against gay-marriage. And it was easy to do, all she did was remain standing, strong in her faith. Could this happen to you?
