The case against Kim Davis is not predicated on her hypocrisy.

Yesterday I wrote a post about how Kim Davis' track record of marriage includes some adultery and more.  If you want the short version, here it is:Just like this meme, my intent was to highlight her hypocrisy.  Sarah Morehead (and at least one other person on twitter) didn't take it that way … [Read More...]

Pat Robertson: Kim Davis in the right, gays won’t rest until Christians are in jail.

Pat Robertson is spreading this line about how Kim Davis could face jail time because she's a Christian, not because she's breaking the law:Lots of Christians oppose same-sex marriage.  To my knowledge there hasn't been a lawsuit filed against any of them for that.  However, the ones who b … [Read More...]

Kim Davis: I’m prepared to go to jail.

Hoo boy is Kim Davis in full-on martyr mode.  She's prepared to go to jail which, frankly, all law-breakers should be.  That's kind of what tends to happen when you break the law. “I’ve weighed the cost and I’m prepared to go to jail, I sure am,” Mrs. Davis told me in an exclusive interview. “This h … [Read More...]

Kim Davis’ attorney’s argument against contempt: it’s impossible for her to comply.

I saw this over on Ed Brayton's blog.  The defense Kim Davis' attorneys plan to deploy is that it's "factually impossible" for her to comply with Judge Bunning's court order to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.  To quote Ed, "I wouldn’t be surprised to see Judge Bunning literally laugh out … [Read More...]

Some random thoughts on Kim Davis and what her fans’ reasoning must be.

I had a thought. The bible does actually command the death of gay people. What if a Christian, out of sincerely-held conviction, wanted to murder a gay couple? Do they get exempt from murder laws? If not, why not?Ah, because religious liberty can't trample over another person's rights. What … [Read More...]

Alabama gets its bill for fighting marriage equality: $545,000 and counting.

Kentucky recently got their bill for fighting same-sex marriage over the course of two years: about $2,350,000 paid directly to attorneys the state probably doesn't like.  Ouch.  Think of all the teachers that could've hired, the scholarships, the fixed roads, etc.  Nope.  Keeping gay people apart wa … [Read More...]
