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.
