Religion V. Law

Kim Davis, Sarah Palin, and Mike Hukabee, for starters, this is for you. I’m so sick of hearing about this KY clerk case every damn day when it all is so clear to even the most dim witted of people. WARNING: this post may contain questionable language. I am very angry.

First! and maybe I should use all caps at  this point to really make the point. THIS IS NOT A CHRISTIAN NATION!!!!!! IT IS IN THE CONSTITUTION THAT THIS COUNTRY SHALL NOT HOLD ANY RELIGION IN HIGHER REGARD THAN ANOTHER. THERE IS NO NATIONAL RELIGION. THIS IS A LAND OF LAWS. YOU IDIOTS IN GOVERNMENT SHOULD KNOW THIS ALREADY. HAVING TO REMIND YOU AGAIN AND AGAIN IS BECOMING SO VERY TIRESOME. AS YOU ARE AN ELECTED OFFICIAL, YOU ARE A PUBLIC SERVANT. THAT MEANS YOU SERVE THE PUBLIC AS DESCRIBED BY THE LAW. ALL OF THE PUBLIC. YOU DON’T GET TO PICK AND CHOOSE WHO YOU DEAL WITH. YOU DON’T GET TO BE SELECTIVE WITH YOUR DUTY BASED ON ANY RELIGIOUS OR MORAL BELIEF. YOU ARE A PUBLIC SERVANT. YOU HAVE NO RELIGION OTHER THAN THE LAW OF THIS COUNTRY. YOU HAVE NO GOD OTHER THAN THE CONSTITUTION. IF  YOU HAVE A MORAL ISSUE WITH  YOUR DUTIES, YOU OUGHT TO RESIGN AND FIND A LINE OF WORK THAT WON’T CONFLICT WITH YOUR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS. IF YOU CAN’T GRASP THAT SIMPLE CONCEPT, THEN SHUT THE FUCK UP BECAUSE YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY LACKING A BRAIN.

SECOND, KIM DAVIS WAS  NOT JAILED FOR BEING CHRISTIAN. SHE WAS JAILED FOR OBSTRUCTING THE LAW.  SHE CAN BE A BIBLE THUMPING BITCH ALL SHE WANTS ON HER OWN TIME, BUT AS AN ELECTED OFFICIAL, SHE SERVES THE PUBLIC AND HER PERSONAL ISSUES ARE IMMATERIAL. SHE COULDN’T HACK IT, SO INSTEAD OF DOING THE RIGHT THING WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN EITHER TO DO HER JOB, HAVE SOMEONE ELSE DO IT, OR JUST RESIGN, SHE CHOSE TO BREAK THE LAW. SHE IS NOW IN JAIL FOR THAT. REPUBLICANS HAVE PRAISED HER, YET I AM AMAZED THAT THEY ARE SO SUPPORTIVE OF SOMEONE WHO HAS BROKEN THE LAW OF THE CONSTITUTION AS THEY ARE ALWAYS SPOUTING OFF ABOUT HOW MUCH THEY LOVE SAID CONSTITUTION. AGAIN, CAN’T PICK AND CHOOSE. YOU FOLLOW ONE PART OF IT, YOU FOLLOW ALL OF IT OR GO HOME. LET’S ALSO NOT FORGET THAT KIM DAVIS HERSELF IS NO SAINT. ADULTERY, DIVORCE, CHILDREN OUT OF WEDLOCK. THIS BITCH, BY BIBLICAL LAW, SHOULD BE STONED TO DEATH. LET’S ALSO FIND A WAY TO GAUGE ‘RELIGIOUS CONVICTION’. THIS C*&^ HAS ONLY BEEN CHRISTIAN FOR A FEW YEARS. WHO THE FUCK DOES SHE THINK SHE IS TO PASS JUDGEMENT ON ANYONE?  UNTIL THEY FIND A WAY TO PROVE HOW DEVOUT YOU ARE, THIS RELIGIOUS LIBERTY ARGUMENT NEEDS TO BE PUT TO BED. CHRISTIANS OF THE WORLD, YOU ARE NOT BEING PERSECUTED. YOUR VIEWS ARE SIMPLY DYING AWAY BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE OPENING THEIR EYES AND HEARTS AND SEE THAT THIS DIVISION IS POINTLESS. TRUE CHRISTIANS ACCEPT AND LOVE ALL. THEY DON’T POINT FINGERS, INFRINGE ON RIGHTS OR FIGHT AGAINST OTHERS LIKE YOU DO.  JESUS  HIMSELF AIDED THE POOR AND SICK. HE OPENED HIS LOVE TO ALL. HE NEVER SPOKE AGAINST ANYONE. UNTIL YOU DO ANY OF THAT, YOU ARE NOT A CHRISTIAN OF ANY PEDIGREE. YOU JUST USE YOUR BELIEFS TO SPREAD YOUR HATE AND IGNORANCE. DON’T PRETEND LIKE ITS ANYTHING OTHER THAN THAT. IF YOU STILL FEEL LIKE YOU’RE BEING PERSECUTED, THEN ALL I CAN SAY IS THINK ABOUT THAT FEELING AND REALIZE ALL THE PEOPLE YOU’VE BEEN PUSHING AGAINST FOR SO LONG HAVE FELT THAT VERY FEELING LONG BEFORE YOU DID. THIS IS WHAT YOU HAVE PUSHED ONTO SO MANY OTHERS OVER THE DECADES. DOESN’T FEEL SO GOOD, DOES IT? WELL, FUCK YOU BECAUSE THIS IS ALL YOUR DOING. YOU BROUGHT THIS ON YOURSELVES. YOU COULD HAVE FOLLOWED THE TEACHINGS OF JESUS. TO LIVE AND LET LIVE AND TO REJOICE IN THE LOVE OF ALL MAN, BUT YOU INSTEAD CHOSE TO USE YOUR BELIEFS AS AN EXCUSE TO MARGINALIZE OTHERS AND CONTROL THE GOVERNMENT. YOU LET PEOPLE LIKE PALIN AND HUCKABEE REIGN OVER YOU. YOU THINK THEY BELIEVE LIKE YOU BUT THEY DON’T. THEY JUST SEE THIS AS A WAY TO CONTROL YOU AND SO FAR, THEY’VE BEEN RIGHT. YOU DO JUST AS THEY SAY. YOU HATE WHO THEY TELL YOU TO HATE. YOU DISCRIMINATE AGAINST THOSE THEY TELL YOU AS WELL. DO YOU THINK THEY ARE ANY AUTHORITIES ON CHRISTIANITY? THEY’RE MORONS!  LOOK AT WHO THEY’RE THROWING IN WITH. THEY SAY KIM DAVIS IS SOME KIND OF MODERN DAY ROSA PARKS. NOT EVEN CLOSE. SHE’S SOME SICK FLIP SIDE OF THE WHOLE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT. SHE’S SOMEONE WHO WOULD HAVE FORCED ROSA TO THE  BACK OF THE BUS.

As you can tell, I’m pissed about all of this. Every day these people just dig deeper into their ignorance and swaddle themselves in it like it was as comfy blanket. I don’t care if you approve or accept the concept of same sex marriage, but you have to know that it is now the law of the land. If you have a moral objection, fine, but it shouldn’t keep you from doing your job. In the private sector, it’s fine. That’s your private business if you want to be an asshole, but if you are a public servant, that’s different. You are sworn in to hold up and defend the rights of all Americans. Not just the ones you find morally acceptable. These religious liberty laws have opened a very ugly door in this nation that we must close. Religious beliefs are  private and should have no bearing on the business of government, on any level. To conclude, Kim Davis is NOT a hero of any kind. She is exactly what is wrong today with the conservative party in this country. She is not a beacon to be followed but a useless relic to be tossed aside. She herself is guilty of many Biblical sins that in those days would have her seen dead, but despite those, she feels she is still righteous enough to stand in judgment of others. This is the kind of hypocritical, backwards thinking that has infected our government for far too long, and pundits like Palin and Huckabee and Trump are just fanning the flames to earn themselves more time in the press, which in itself is disgusting, because they think they’re getting their face in the paper but what they are really doing is chipping away at our people and creating more hate and evil. I won’t even say I hate Kim Davis. That wouldn’t  be the Christian thing to do. Jesus would forgive her. I won’t, but I will pray that while she is incarcerated, the light of wisdom and mercy will shine upon her and she will see the error of her ways. I hope that she will see how she has hurt her fellow man and set upon a path to heal that hurt. I also hope that right now she’s ‘married’ to a big prison dyke named Steamshovel.
