    So what you are admitting to – and I agree – is that the “little people” are not treated the same as those with power and money.
    So what you are acknowledging is that “little people” – like say low income minorities (blacks) are not treated the same as those with power and… privilige. Shall we say… Financial or racial (white) privilege.
    You are, I believe, identifying a real problem. It’s just that you are selectively applying it. Turning a blind eye (intentionally perhaps ) to ALL those it applies to.

    I figured you’d know by know.
    There’s no guessing about such things. Just state it as fact as all good extreme conservatives attempt to do.

    She is NOT in jail because of her religious beliefs.
    She is in jail because she is in contempt of court – defying this judges order that she do her govt job.

    Well put.
    I don’t agree with ALL of it but… Well put.

    How do you know I “go with that one”?

    “You have a personal objection to a God that you don’t understand.”
    Correct.

    And all those books / caves originated from basically the same area of the world.
    I have no problem believing that there could have been a catastrophic flood – even many such floods ‘in the area’.
    Experience a tsunami – and live to tell about it… Darn right you’re gonna make sure others hear about it.
    But a global flood – ‘ordained’ by a god as punishment and to kill ALL of the wicked mankind (that he created) – AND allow but a boat full of a family – led by a 600 year old man – who gathered a pair of ALL all the animals of the globe on put them on this boat…
    OK
    And like I said… If that’s the doing of YOUR perfect, loving, caring god, well… I have no desire to hear any more about such a supposed perfect, loving, caring god.

    And Jonah was swallowed and lived in a whale (for three days and nites) – right?

    Stop with the never-ending circular argument. It’s pointless.
    Her rights are being violated. Their rights are being violated.

    However… The gay couples claiming their rights are being violated are not hiding behind a veil of supposed religious freedom. They are stating factually that our Federal govt has ruled that their marriage IS legal and they they have every right to be treated equally when seeking their govt-sanctioned marriage license.

    This woman is using a VERY SELECTIVE, personal interpretation of a supposed god belief to claim that she cannot do her govt job.
    Our govt courts have NOT ruled that someone can claim religious freedom to (so selectively) discriminate against others. Others that the govt HAS specifically identified as not allowing discrimination against.

    And the rights of couples seeking a govt-sanctioned marriage license from this clerk?

    WHO is “acting like its murder”?
    Specifics please.

    And if you note above/below… I didn’t just pick that one thing.

    “but at least we’re not passing laws requiring everyone to attend church on Sundays.”
    Perhaps
    But you are claiming ‘laws’ of god’s word that if not followed will supposedly condemn you to eternal damnation.
    And this woman SAYS she is acting out of concern over eternal damnation – vs jail time.

    So I’m not quite sure of the point of your post.

    So judges should ‘fold’?
    What do you think the judge should have done to hold this woman accountable for her contempt of court?

    “so did hitlers minions – same concept”
    Same “concept” perhaps but very VERY different ‘reasoning’.

    If she cannot perform her govt job without believing she is disobeying her god then… She needs to leave her job.

    “This is just a good sign of the times and the weakness in most people’s faith
    How so?

    So many talk the talk (of religious ‘obedience’) – but utterly fail to actually walk the walk.
    And frankly.. This woman is doing it but VERY selectively.
    Most certainly she has issued marriage licenses to other sinners so… She is but very selectively being obedient.

    She won’t have a job if she continues to refuse to do her job.

    I don not know how I would respond. Give me a specific scenario and maybe I can try to respond honestly.
    That said… As a matter of fact… I would say that for a recent job I held… I was released because I stood for certain things passionately.

    I have no problem with this woman standing her ground. In fact, she should be admired for THAT element of her character – and I do respect her for THAT – BUT… As to the reason WHY she is standing her ground…
    I utterly disagree with and do not respect that.

    That’s partially right.
    But then… Can you cite any other cases of “not doing your duty in a government job AND being held in contempt of court for doing so?

  • [2] September 3, 2015 at 2:36pm

    Witness the AvengerK cop-out!
    Proving yet again he is unwilling – sorry, UNABLE – to address challenges to his own remarks – and showing how failed his original remarks are in the first place.

    Trump: “I only hit people who hit me.”
    Liar.
    So when did Huma Abedin and husband Anthony Weiner “hit” Trump?

    I see LOTS of double standards.
    What I don’t see is ‘logic’ in some of your comparisons.
    Clinton, Trump, so many others of ‘power’ do indeed ‘get away’ with much more than the ‘common person’. But the fact is… Clinton has NOT been found in contempt of court (yet?) – like this woman has. Is that because Clinton is who she is? I don’t know. I have not followed the specifics of the legal cases against Hillary. In fact, as I know it… There are NO LEGAL cases against Hillary – LIKE THERE IS against this KY woman.
    Again – comparing apples to oranges.
    There are legal cases against Davis. The judge has ruled against her. She is being held accountable.
    Just like what I say about Hillary.
    If Clinton is breaking the law… Bring charges against her and hold her fully accountable.
    So where is my double standard there packerbacker12?

    So Trump is UNAWARE and UNABLE to comment (at all) on the VERY IMPORTANT Kentucky clerk religious freedom issue but…
    Ask him about Tom Brady and… He SUPPOSEDLY “just talked with him”.
    Shows you where Trump’s values are.

    Your posts show how inept you are.
    Keep up the good work.

    Then take it up with the courts and your elected representatives.
