Yeah, I think @KimDavis917 is the most subtle troll account ever. September 6, 2015

Like tons of other people I’ve been following the account @KimDavis917, which has postured as Kim Davis’ official twitter account.  However, this post from Hemant made me think twice.  A lot of the evidence he listed hedged on some things being over-the-top, but that’s kind of what hardcore fundamentalists do, so that didn’t convince me.

But this part did.  From her letter from a Carter County jail:

But here’s the most telling sign:

This is all a trial from God above. And I ask that you read this passage from Luke 16:18 and think of me, “Consider it all joy, my brethren when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produced endurance.

That’s not what Luke 16:18 says.

This is what Luke 16:18 says:

Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery, and the man who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

@SMLXist pointed that one out on Twitter and it’s pretty much the clincher.

Jesus Christ, whoever’s doing this is subtle.  So much so that he took in a lot of people, myself included.  And why not?  Poe’s law and all that.  I’m a tad disappointed in myself, but not too much because whoever’s running that account is so damn good at it.

But anyway, yeah, it’s a troll account.  We need to discount the letter than came out of it.
