Kim WTF?

Davis is at it =again=.  She filed an appeal demanding that she be allowed to refuse same-sex marriage licenses. Her reasoning? The original ruling that forced her to obey the law was issued improperly:

Meanwhile, the heavily-armed Oathkeepers have already arrived in town, and they're swearing that Davis will never again be "unlawfully detained."

It's a bad movie.  Davis's appeal will be denied, she'll refuse to issue licenses, Judge Bunning will order her jailed again, and the Oathkeepers will start a firefight.  They will lose--a bunch of rednecks armed with Wal-Mart weapons might be able to make an initial dent in law enforcement, but once the National Guard is called in, it'll be over in less than thirty seconds.

What do these people think they'll accomplish, anyway?  That everyone will say, "Oh! These guys have guns! Well, never mind, then. We'll make same-sex marriage illegal in the entire country again because these guys have guns"?

Oh, I am glad to see she's still fighting this violation of her rights! The bullying will never stop, but we must stand strong.

The courts have ruled over and over that her rights have not been denied. Even the Supreme Court has said her rights have not been denied. On the contrary, Kim Davis is denying other people their rights. The bully here is Kim Davis. She has decided that everyone else needs to follow her religious beliefs, and she does not have that right, or that power.

I'm glad she's still fighting, too! She's going to make teaching social studies sooooo much easier! I'll get to use her as an example right along side George Wallace as a self-righteous attention whore and supreme bigot, just like Wallace when he stood to keep black children out of his lily-white schools. That's all she is.

As someone who stands directly against my own beliefs on a daily basis for that mutilation of Bellamy's pledge, I PERSONALLY know what it's like to be in a tax-payer paid position and be required to set aside my rights. Then again, I'm not a toddler, so I know it's not "All about me". I know how to put the needs of others first, so I stand quietly and say the pledge with my students anyway because I'm the authority figure. I hate it, but I do it.

I am in a SERVICE position, just like Kim. Anybody who is too immature to put aside their needs to give service to another, especially when they CHOOSE that service is nothing more than a self-centered, tantrum throwing toddler. She deserves ZERO respect.

I seem to recall a religious leader that preached how important service is to others. Something about doing unto the poor is just like doing it unto him and this being a primary mandate of the faith he founded. Hmmmmmm...... I wonder if Kim Davis has ever heard of this particular faith. Can someone remind me what it was??
