1. It’s Thursday, September 10, 2015.
2. I haven’t written in a while. Family issues. I’ll post Yes or No tomorrow, then won’t post again until Wednesday.
3. There are, in fact, people who see Kim Davis as a paragon of virtue. They see her as a martyr for not going against her religious beliefs. A defender of the Constitutional right of freedom of religion. A county clerk whose bravery makes her a hero.
Here’s what she really is:
— A criminal – she took an oath of office to defend the Constitution, a Constitution that includes a section about how the U.S. Supreme Court is the ultimate arbiter of what’s the law of the land.
— An opportunist – if she really wanted to make a statement about how abhorrent she believes same-sex marriage to be, she would have resigned. Instead, she knew damn well that if she went to jail, there would be those who would trumpet her cause.
— A hypocrite – she and the dolts who support her, including morons who aspire to be President of the United States, cry about how their religious rights are being infringed, but make no bones about stomping on the religious and spiritual rights of other people.
From a political point of view, it was probably right for a judge to spring Davis from her cell. The longer she stayed there, the more bubble brains like Mike Huckabee would rally support among their species.
But when this all dies down — and people realize that letting two people who are in love get married, no matter who they are, is going to advance rather infringe on general morality — Kim Davis is either going to cash in on her 15 minutes of fame among the braindead who support her or, hopefully, fade into well-deserved obscurity.
Kim Davis can go to hell. In fact, if there’s a just God, she probably will.
