THIS WOMAN AND TOPIC HAS BURNED MY ASS SINCE IT BEGAN… I WANT TO BE RID OF HER, BUT SHE’S HUCKABEE’S CHILDBRIDE OF THE WEEK…
Oh boy…whoever thought that the Republican presidential primary would have all eyes glued to the Carter County Kentucky Detention Center on a Tuesday afternoon, September 7th? But here we are, including pols, Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz and a crowd of bible-waving theocrats.
Let’s start with the current cause celebre, jailbird, Kim Davis’ “God trumps man’s law.” The middle-age “Christian” Rowan County Clerk, four-time married proud homophobic, who blissfully breaks the law in the name of hate, claims she won’t issue marriage licenses to same sex couples because she’s operating under “God’s authority.”
She first acquired a job in the clerk’s office through nepotism. Her mother was clerk for 37 years; Davis had worked in the office for 26 years prior to being elected top dog and taking office January 5th of this year.
An unexpected release, notwithstanding, chaos may be the order of the day, or next few days or weeks. The judge who put her in the clink has just surprisingly issued an order releasing her from the clink located in a neighboring county. U.S. District Court judge David Bunning let her go with the proviso that she not interfere with the issuance of marriage licenses to all legally eligible couples. Five (of the six) deputy clerks in the office have no problem with same sex marriages and have been routinely issuing licenses.
The 49-year-old Davis (paid 89k a year in the fifth poorest state in America), appears to have been doodling during history class while the teacher chatted about the legislative process, the supreme court, the 14th amendment, the imperative of enforcing the law as an office holder; you know, stuff like that. She has insisted that given the chance, she’ll personally deny licenses to all gay couples and will prevent her deputies from doing so as well. Under the judicial order, these same clerks will file a Status Report every 14 days to update the court on the behavior of their recalcitrant boss. It’s pretty well accepted that if Davis continues to defy our nation’s law, and her lawyer tells the media “she will not compromise her conscience”, all indications are she’ll ignore the break the judge gave her. If so, she’ll get a penal encore, compliments of Judge Bunning.Gay Marriage.. NO, if she can help it, or NOT help it
