lol.... it sounds that after all this ruckus, they will end up with a compromise that could have easily been worked out a day or two after the court ruling, unless of course, davis likes her accommodations...

wonder if her son is in jail now also, since appearently he didn't agree..

The irony, but remember once a rule is done by the higher court is up to the government to enforce it when the states wants to do their own thing.

When it comes to immigration politicians tend to go blind.

Yes, that is right, but still you have some people that believe the supreme court decisions are base on personal preferences.

Specially in issues of hot topics like believes and religion.



Sure. People believe all kinds of things.

You're right.

Certanily. And I shall comply. I was merely pointing out her hypocricy by being a hypocrite myself. I'm pleased to see other level-headed individuals step forward and call me on it...my point has been made. Thank you!

This is interesting, people, it seems that no state can ignore
Supreme court decisions, this is for those that think that the supreme court is just that a court that tells the states what to do even they the states have the rights to sovereignty


I guess, Kentucky have a big problem in their hands, as their run away with the law cleric is going to stay as a local state problem.


Yeah it is interesting.

States can IGNORE federal law like immigration, but county clearks, and other states can't IGNORE the one about marriage.


The State of Kentucky was not IGNORING anything, just this official.

The Governor of Kentucky ordered this lady to obey the law; she refused. Source

This whore has been divorced 3 times, married 4 and is a proven adulterer. She has zero religious ground to stand on.

P.S. Babylon called; they need their whore back.


Low hanging fruit is easy to pick ain't it.

A Ruling is not a Law, 4 out of 5 judges don't cut it.

"If a bill has passed in both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate and has been approved by the President, or if a presidential veto has been overridden, the bill becomes a law and is enforced by the government."

Thus far nope still not a law.

I wouldn't call myself a 'level-headed" anything ... and I understand the sentiment and passion behind what you said ... but at some point we have to rise up.

She violated citizens rights delineated in that document.

As this appears to be a Christian issue.

What would Jesus do in this situation if he found himself as a clerk being forced to issue? Would he? Would he not? Would he do so but with as witness and with a statement, that if they but follow him, or meet him after work at Starbucks, he would show them the errors of their ways?

What in the sam-hill are you talking about???

There are nine Supreme Court Justices.

The "law" regarded in Obergefell is the US Constitution.

They are correct. Even though the supreme court ruled on this matter, many states still have not passed or changed the laws to reflect the ruling.

It is the duty of state representatives to change the law to reflect the ruling, or they open the door for lawsuits in which the supreme court ruling will set precedence.

The Bible is very clear on the issue:

Titus: 3:1-2 Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, 2 to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and always to be gentle toward everyone.

... is but one example.

It's because when people are used to privilege, equality seems oppressive and unfair

So much for Paul and Silas in jail all night long.


Damn, what a wuss.

I gave her less than a week on page one but I did not think it would be less than one day.

What a total lame-o, I expected more...


Well, maybe I spoke too soon. According to this newer article:


But Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis, whom U.S. District Court Judge David Bunning has placed in the custody of U.S. marshals ready to take her to Boyd County jail, said through her lawyers that she will not authorize any of her employees to issue licenses in her absence.


www.usatoday.com...

Sounds like they're trying to fudge something out where the assistants will issue the licenses without her permission.
