Wow obviously uses Friday night for excessive drinking.

I am fully expecting that by tomorrow morning, beckies are going to say that this random guy is the second coming. And they are going to start quoting scripture and say that those quotes are proof that he is the second coming. Stay tuned.
I know that by tomorrow morning you will be wrong again just like you always are.......

Hey Paul, he is mocking you — not God. You are not God’s spokesperson. You’re just someone who is trying to sound like a philosopher (without the thinking part).

I think you better go back to trimming trees, Jim. Logic is NOT your strong suit. Nobody forces civil marriage on anyone. If they did, maybe your post would make sense — but they DO NOT.

Before long, “ThisGuy” will be exposed as more electable than Trump.

808…if you feel that way, then why is it okay for Kim to point out the sins of others and deny the license?
[-2] September 4, 2015 at 5:47pm
Well, I guess you don’t know that he doesn’t have that power. Wonderful and sapient? Do you know her?? In order to make sense of this, shall we stick with what we know. She may be those things and she may not be.

And her continuing to deny licenses to gay couples “just isn’t gonna happen” either. If you think that gay marriages will be halted in her county because of her, I guess you didn’t read the morning news. She can sit in jail for as long as SHE chooses. It is her choice.

People can have a religious marriage without having a civil marriage, but then they couldn’t partake in governmental perks of a civil marriage. Nobody forces civil marriage on anyone.

Wait up…then doesn’t God abhor Kim’s adultery? Or is she still righteous because God told you he’s okay with that?
First, Kim adultery was committed BEFORE she became a Christian.
Second, Kim's imperfection has nothing to do with her stance on "same-sex marriage".
Let's take a hard look at the sins of the five Supreme Court judges who basically chastised Christians by making their ruling and the judge who threw Kim into jail. Both decisions were MORAL ones--NOT legal ones nor ones based upon any scientific evidence (which is on the side of Kim, to be sure).
I would wager that each of them have committed sexually lewd acts, stolen, committed violence against others, discriminated against others, etc ... and yet they have the temerity--like Edward Kennedy did as he sat on many "Ethics Committees" after having committed manslaughter and covering it up--to denounce the morality of the natural sciences that clearly show that homosexuality is UN-natural.

You have EVERY RIGHT to follow your conscience and you should — we all should. What we DON’T have is the right to deny others their rights under the law as a result of our following our consciences.

She is being treated like the rest of the people who have been arrested. Not just murderers get the chains. She chose this…she has other options. She said that she would prefer jail to perfoming the job and to resigning. So, what is so odd about the chains??

Newsflash — Catholic hospitals reserve the right to not perform abortions even if it means that the mother’s life is in jeopardy. However, if a doctor is working at a PUBLIC hospital, they are required to follow the law. If they refuse, they will be fired.
In this case, Kim can’t be “fired” because she is elected, but she can resign or perform her duties. She can also fight it any way she chooses (legally or otherwise). However, the citizens can’t be denied marriage licenses until she’s done fighting for her rights. It’s NOT all about her.
Cake bakers are subject to the same anti-discrimination laws as any other business. If an elderly person went to the bakery and couldn’t get a cake because they didn’t like old people, there would be a problem there, wouldn’t there be?
There — you asked for an answer and I hope I’ve helped you out with this.

Without habeas corpus?!?! She is RIGHT THERE and able to leave when she complies with the court order. The court order is ordering her to follow the law. What story are you following??? You may want to be some authority, but you have to have knowledge and fact to be that. You are lacking both here. C’mon already…
MARRIAGES ONCE CRITICAL to the continuation of mankind??? I’m pretty sure that 2 people can procreate and raise healthy offspring without marriage.
COMPULSORY, STATE RUN EDUCATION??? You can home school or send kids to private school. You just can’t tweak public school to be just what YOU want without regard for the rest of the public!
You made a very valid point @wowjustwow. The ORIGINAL reason the Feds made Americans get marriage licenses was to keep whites from marrying blacks MANY YEARS AGO. READ YOUR HISTORY. If the Feds can change their reasons WHILE MAKING LAWS OR WHILE ENFORCING THEM, constantly, THEN THEY SHOULD GET OUT OF THE MARRIAGE LAWS ALTOGETHER. They are hypocritical.
Marriage is a MORAL issue, especially between 2 people of the same sex. SCOTUS is legislating MORALITY, which should never be, as stated in the 1st Amendment in saying the govt cannot force any one particular religion on the nation. HOWEVER, they are forcing the justification of homosexual marriage on us, are they not??????? If you object to marrying them because of your religious beliefs, are you not the victim of the govt telling you that YOU CANNOT PRACTICE YOUR OWN FAITH 24 HRS A DAY, 365 DAYS A YEAR? Yet, this is what our govt has done. THEY HAVE VIOLATED THE 1ST AMENDMENT.
Think about that.
“MARRIAGES ONCE CRITICAL to the continuation of mankind??? I’m pretty sure that 2 people can procreate and raise healthy offspring without marriage.”
Ah–THERE WE GO. This is the REAL agenda of the secular-humanist Elites: the removal of marriage as an institution, to be followed by the criminalization of Christiantiy and Judaism.
Thank you for your honesty. The entire “same-sex marriage” thing is a SHAM. They have no interest in marriage, nor equality, whatsoever. They are simply using the pervertting/"redefining" of marriage in order to destroy it and render it meaningless and “socially unnecessary”. Their next target is the traditional family, where your ilk will state that “I’m pretty sure that the State can raise children without families.”

How silly can you get? Nobody is going after Christians. She is free to practice her faith from home, Church and any public place as long as she doesn’t deny others their rights. She is denying people their rights under the law. NOBODY is denying her rights — they are denying her the right to deny the rights of others based on HER beliefs.
The judge is proving that his power comes from the barrel of a gun. He's a totalitarian brute. There are other counties with other county clerks that can issue the license - you just want to silence anyone that disagrees with you. Through force if necessary.
Well, being that the Supreme Law of the Land, embodied in both the Declaration and the Constitution, mandate that rights come from God, not the silly Supreme Court in all of their ignorance, your statement is false. Kim Davis is not stopping anyone's rights. She is simply refusing to issue a legal document for an act that is anti-God, and therefore, anti-Declaration, and therefore, contradicts the Supreme Law of the Land.

One would have to believe that she just likes the attention. If she didn’t she would step down. She doesn’t just not want to be associated with issuing the licenses; she wants to stay in a position where it is expected of her and not do it and not allow those around her to do it. That’s some pretty serious attention-mongering!
It's called civil disobedience.
People have doing this for a long time
Maybe she can also start doing a hunger strike too.
[-1] September 4, 2015 at 12:57pm
I am not telling you what you believe…your statements are telling everyone what you believe. I don’t hate others (oh wait, you’re telling me what I feel — so I guess it’s ok when YOU do it). There is no vitriol in my heart — does it make you feel above the fray to suggest that there is vitriol in my heart? (I’m asking this time; not telling). One thing you will always get from me is my honest opinion — no agenda. And you don’t have to agree or read what I’ve written. I’m ok with that. I’m also okay with you reading it and disagreeing.
[-2] September 4, 2015 at 12:50pm
Hey quicksdraw, I’m not a Muslim lover or hater, but they not only go to jail for their beliefs, they actually die for them and sometimes they starve themselves to death. So, get schooled before you make untrue statements.

Normal people? Well, once it was declared legal for what you would call “abnormal” people, her job description changed a little. If you had a job where you were given responsibilities that you didn’t want to take on, would you resign…or would you expect to not have to perform those additional duties? That is what this is, period. Your disdain for gay people doesn’t make this woman a hero. It just supports YOUR disdain for gay people. We will see what guts she has when she remains in jail (her own choice) and is no longer getting attention regarding it.
Typical leftwinger putting the word disdain in my mouth when I never said it,she has religious objection in accordance with first amendment. Marriage was never a civil right why don't you put that law in your post where marriage was made and was called a civil right.The gay couples could had got their mock marriage license through a notary public.They jailed her because of her beliefs. Why not just fine her or give her probation,or with a court order force her to resign,But to throw her right in jail,is way over the Top and already This judge is through congress might be removed. Leftwingers always takes to moral high ground when it suits you,what hypocrites....if you can't procreate there's no debate.
