Posted on 09/04/2015 2:00:33 AM PDT by Nextrush
Gay couple plantiffs in the federal lawsuit against Rowan County, Kentucky Chief Clerk Kim Davis will walk into her office in a few hours and get their marriage licenses.
News media have been reporting their plans overnight.
My estimation of the unfolding of events goes like this.
Judge David Bunning found out that five of Davis's clerks would obey his order yesterday so Bunning jailed Chief Clerk Kim Davis temporarily so the marriage licenses can be issued today.
Then I expect Bunning to spring Davis from jail so she won't end up having some martyr status. I'm reminded of the time in 1962 when the Kennedy Administration sent a Justice Department official to bail Dr. Martin Luther King from an Albany, Georgia jail to prevent his martyrdom.
An alternate scenario to this would be some folks sitting around the entrance of the Rowan County, Kentucky Clerk's Office (2...10....50....200....whatever) singing some good old songs or hymns. How about "Jesus Loves The Little Children" or "Amazing Grace" or maybe just a good old fashioned 1960's protest song like "We Shall Not Be Moved".
"Well I'm on my way to heaven, we shall not be moved, on my way to heaven, we shall not be moved, just like a tree that standing by the waterside we shall not be moved.....we're on that road to freedom, we shall not be moved.....(and so on the song goes)
“Then I expect Bunning to spring Davis from jail so she won’t end up having some martyr status.”
Strike me down and I will become more powerful than you can ever imagine.
Ever wonder why so many book and movie quotes fit into real life? Because the powers that be direct the world as if it were a movie.

It won’t be good enough for the left. They’ll demand that Davis be the one to give them gay marriage licenses.
People in hell demand ice water.
It’s a lesser evil. No matter what. Feet to fire and stuff...
Any day now. Soon. But we gotta keep our powder dry right now for the fight to come.
/Extreme sarcasm for people that missed it
Besides, our next liberally elected President isn’t up on the topic. But Ted Cruz is and issued a full statement. Which of course will drive more libs to support the guy not up on the topic...
Our country has a long celebrated history of conscientious objection from military to jury nullification, to judges who set aside jury verdicts. None of them result in jail.
I agree. My point is that had we son stuck our heads solidly up our arses collectively and empowered the people doing this, AND the people so carefully ignoring the situation that should be stopping them, we wouldn’t have a problem to begin with.
This fiasco/travesty/blatantly unAmerican bullshit is all coming home to roost. On us. For our own negligence.
Edit...had we NOT stuck
Problem is that those licenses won’t technically be legal because she is refusing to personally sign them herself. I read somewhere last night that the county officials are considering using either a stamp of her signature or an autosignature to goose the permits through, but in my opinion, that amounts to forgery, and therefore will render them illegal. The judge has made a real legal mess for himself, the state, and the county by throwing her in jail.
he should be consistent and order her fed to lions in a packed stadium
They've already been doing that. Apparently a county judge who has the same authority to sign the licenses offered to do so, but the gays refused, wanting instead to force the clerk to do it, thus escalating the fight into the federal courts to make an example out of her.
They're coming out of the woodwork on social media (local TV news sites and the such), and being pretty nasty (as usual) about the whole thing and blasting anyone who stands with her.
Lots of liberal Freepers will buy tickets if history is any indication. Recall all the ‘move on’ talk after the SCOTUS decision.
The USSC made up their ruling out of whole cloth. The U. S. Constitution does not empower the federal government to decide what is or isn’t marriage.
There is no Constitutional Right to be homosexual. There is no stated Constitutional Right for homosexuals to "marry"--nor for that matter, is sexual preference mentioned in the Constitution, period. (nor the Bill of Rights).
However, Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof... is pretty explicit.
This is a win/win for the anti-Christians. If they lose on religious grounds, they can claim religious protection for all sorts of stuff. If they prevail in the courts, they proclaim it as a victory.
While either way they might claim to not have lost, the case boils down to forcing someone--a specific individual, now, by decree, to act against their deeply held religious beliefs to satiate a couple of vengeful people.
Where is the Law that says the County Clerk shall issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples? No such statute exists. Only a court decision.
Though others have offered to issue the license, the attack is no longer a matter of just getting a license, but forcing someone to repudiate their core beliefs.
May Almighty God grant this woman strength to prevail against the wicked who assail her.
Have you really heard the Left on this, or the dupes who believe gays are cute, lovable fuzzballs because they watch them on TV or saw them in a movie (think Robin Williams in Birdcage)?
They won’t back down. The Gays have convinced enough that this is the same as Blacks fighting for Civil Rights back in the 1960s.
What joke! Sexual preferences are not the same as skin color, but logic has been thrown out the window long ago.
She stays in jail until/unless she relents. The judge won’t change. We need to be prepared for the long haul.
” our next liberally elected President isnt up on the topic. But Ted Cruz is and issued a full statement”........
I thought politics and religion were not to be mixed.
