This is not Kim Davis's situation. The state has not put her to a choice: Obey God's law or man's. If she truly believes that she cannot reconcile her responsibilities as an elected official with her interpretation of the Bible, then she is duty-bound to resign from office.
You are not a hero. You are not a martyr. Using Gods word to discriminate simply makes you a coward. You are using the Bible to spew hate and intolera...
Kim Davis is a county clerk from Kentucky who was recently jailed for her persistent refusal to issue any marriage licenses because gay marriage viola...
President Obama had some fun this week, and by doing so actually forced the media to tackle a serious subject on his agenda.
Please God, say something, anything, maybe, use your cell phone, which I know can never run low on battery power. Call our secular-elect religious leaders. Call Mike Huckabee, Scott Walker, Ted Cruz and the rest. Only you can steady these lunatics, who claim a war against Christianity is being waged. But first, call Kim Davis, she is in Kentucky, but you already know that.
Presidential aspirant Bobby Jindal has come out in support of homophobic Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis, but his support for her contradicts his own language from just a few years ago.
I am a gay man, and I want to take nothing from you -- not your faith and not your freedom. You take comfort in the Lord's covenant, and I take comfort in man's, as imperfect as it may be -- that all men and women are created equal.
Kim Davis, the clerk of Rowan County, Kentucky, is the Religious Right's latest manufactured martyr. But what are people really telling us when they say "I'm with Kim?"
Davis and her supporters, whether out of ignorance or willfulness, have completely distorted the Constitution. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land, and, in our system of government, the Supreme Court has the final say as to what the Constitution means.
Who invented marriage? Rowan County, Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis says her God did. That's why she's been denying marriage licenses, citing "God's authority" and "God's definition of marriage." This is ridiculous on so many levels I don't know where to start.
As evidenced by Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis of Kentucky and several presidential candidates, apparently some public officials either don't know or don't care that when they act on behalf of the government, they are obliged to follow federal law.
At the beginning of the 1900s, grim predictions punctuated the debate over women's suffrage. Everyone in the family unit would be damaged in innumerable ways if this outrage were allowed to happen, argued the critics, some of whom went so far as to predict the end of civilization itself.
I'm sure those who have suffered discrimination for being gay might understandably have little sympathy for seeing Kim Davis head off to prison for not fulfilling her oath of office. But is that any way to celebrate a victory?
It doesn't matter what scripture says. It doesn't matter what the Q'uran says. It doesn't matter what the Sutras, the Vedas, the Talmud, the Midrash, or the Institutes of Calvin say. Because the US Constitution makes it clear that the Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.
As you occupy your jail cell, contemplating your next move, let's set the record straight: you are a public official, paid by taxpayers and therefore your personal religious beliefs are completely irrelevant and insignificant as relating to issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
The heart of Davis's case isn't actually about gay marriage or religious freedom. This debate is about civil versus natural law, and it's a debate that we have engaged in throughout history.
