To those who think Kim Davis should be allowed to not issue marriage licences
Lisa there are people out there who want to use devices to stop gays from getting married. JW would never do that. And I would never do that and neither do I secretly rejoice over it.
Davis is stuck in her position because the gay law was passed while she was in office. She does not want to loose her job. Would anyone? And she claims that she cannot violate her conscience. She is stuck.
They want to get the AG to prosecute her for misfeasance, he cannot...... She is being sued by the ACLU....She is in jail for contempt...... So much power given to a clerk. Wasting tax money and time.. Just replace her. they can't. Religion has no business in government. How dare you run for public office and then use religion as an excuse.. If not for this thread, I would not even have noticed.
I was surprised (shocked) to see the post showing how many countries legalized ss marriages,but after realizing that, then what is the big deal here in the USA?
I think that Simon is right, this is just a transition period. That is just my guess.
But specifically in Davis case. Very easy solution: The boot. Let her sue. But that is not the way KY gov is set up. It is a flaw in the system. They have to fix the system. The system has deeper pockets than Davis and it is the system that is to blame.
But also who knows what could spark another civil war or chaos in the streets all over the USA
