Kim Davis, RIGHT NOW.
Kim Davis, RIGHT NOW.

CRU-CI-FY! CRU-CI-FY! CRU-CI-FY! Oh, we are just joshing, nobody wants Kim Davis crucified. (OR DO WE?) Wingnuts, though? Remember that time they lost their whole country in the span of a week, because gay marriage was legalized and the Confederate flag came down? Well, they’ve lost it again! NO COUNTRY FOR STUPID WINGNUTS, that’s what we like to say. And they are good and damn sure that a judge putting Kentucky clerk Kim Davis in jail for failing to do HER EFFING JOB is just the beginning of the persecution and the Holocaust and getting ISIS-ed right in their fundamentalist Christian shame buttholes. Because this is the sad thing about wingnuts: They think we care about them enough to actively persecute them. Awwww. The sad truth is that decent Americans are more than happy to abide these dumbasses in our midst, for entertainment purposes mostly, as long as they follow the law. How simple is that?

Apparently not that simple. Set the tone for us, pretend news source run by quisling closet homosexual (“allegedly”):

Remember what A Idiot Mike Huckabee was being about this? He said this morning nobody even knows what marriage law is in the United States anymore, due to how (he believes) the Supreme Court ruling isn’t valid unless Congress changes the law. Also he wishes he could get in the shower with teenage girls, and Josh Duggar’s diddle fingers are washed by the blood of Jesus, yep, he’s just a great person to get opinions from these days.

He’s very Sadpants right now:

Before Davis was even sent to the gulags, her dipshit Liberty Counsel “lawyer” Mat Staver said this was just like the Holocaust, which makes TOTAL SENSE, except replace “six million Jews” with “one adulteress hick lady” and replace “death” with “case of the butthurt.” IT’S THE SAME, SHUT UP. Here are Staver’s words:

Does that mean that if you’re Christian, don’t apply here; if you’re a Jew, you gotta get — what happened in Nazi Germany, what happened there first, they removed the Jews from government public employment, then they stopped patronizing them in their private businesses, and then they continued to stigmatize them, then they were the ‘problems,’ then they killed them. The fact of the matter is, she has a right to this employment and you don’t lose your constitutional liberties just because you are employed by the government.

Staver also says it’s not fair to say Davis isn’t doing her job, because “The job duty was changed!” Yep, that’s how it works, in the American workplace. Your boss says, “Hey I need you to do this new thing,” and you just say, “Well, let me talk to Jesus about whether that’s a thing I want to do, because I’m pretty sure that’s not in my job description?” Let’s be clear: If Kim Davis wasn’t fucking lucky ducky enough to hold public office, she wouldn’t be in jail right now, because her boss would have canned her stupid ass MONTHS ago.

Now that Davis has been condemned by Pontius Pilate, Liberty Counsel is reacting in a measured, sane way:

liberty

Poor things, still laboring under the delusion that even the majority of Christians think like they do. Sorry, fuck-sicles, everyday Christians are getting pretty supportive of the gays. They see your future, relegated to KKK status in the American mind, and they want no part of it. :(

Here’s unemployable Liberty Counsel pity hire and founder of Barbwire.com, Matt Barber. He’s not being dramatic or anything:

barber

Fox News spokeswimp and suspected pee enthusiast Todd Starnes is saying much of the same:

starnes2

starnes1

Only the ones who willingly break the law, dicksnot! This also goes for Jews, Muslims, atheist commiesexuals, lesbigators, and again, suspected pee enthusiasts. IT COULD HAPPEN TO YOU, TODD!

Already-failed presidential candidate Rand Paul, who has already said SO MANY STUPID WORDS ON THIS, said more stupid words about it on CNN, as he watched Kim Davis carrying her cross to fucking Calvary:

“I think it’s absurd to put someone in jail for exercising their religious liberty,” Paul told CNN’s Brianna Keilar. “You know if you want to convince people that same-sex marriage is something that’s acceptable, I would say try to persuade people. But you know, if we’re going to use the federal government, and get involved in every state, locality, you know what’s going to happen? It’s going to harden people’s resolve on this issue. They’ll be no open-mindedness on this, and I think its a real mistake to be doing this. I think what’s going to happen as a result of this, is states and localities are going to opt out of the marriage business completely.”

Oh, Rand. We are so tired of your mouth. People are ALREADY CONVINCED that same-sex marriage is acceptable. A solid majority of Americans has supported marriage equality for a few years now! We’re not at the “convincing” stage anymore, babydoll. We’re at the THIS IS THE MOTHERFUCKING LAW OF THE LAND AND YOU’D BETTER FOLLOW IT, YOU DIPSHITS stage. Honest mistake, we know.

Some wingnuts are just confused. Like look at poor idiot rightwing radio host Dana Loesch. She doesn’t seem to know whether she’s supposed to support Davis or not, but she’s got ONE gotcha for everybody! Did you know Kim Davis is a Democrat? And that means she’s a leftist, right? That means the liberals just jailed one of their own! QED BITCHES WHY IS MY PILL CUPBOARD EMPTY?!?!

Dana Loesch Twitter Shart, Part One:

loesch1

 

Like, ha ha ha, LOL, like, do you see what Dana did there? ‘Cause she’s a Democrat! Did you hear Dana’s joke, everybody? She’s, like, a Democrat!

Dana Loesch Twitter Shart, Part Two:

loesch2

LOLZ! Put that in YOUR Kaboodle and smoke it, Heather! You just got served by Dana!

Anyway, the southern Democrats who hail from the backwoods of Kentucky and similar places are basically Republicans who haven’t gotten the message that the parties switched places in the ’60s, and the bigots are supposed to be on the red team. Most of them vote Republican in national elections. The question, as usual: Is Dana Loesch so stupid she doesn’t know this, or is it just that her wingnut followers are that stupid? The answer, as usual: Both, probably.

Anyway, this is getting long, so let’s just slam through like two more things. Erick Son Of Erickson makes the creative joke that “Kim Davis is in jail and Hillary Clinton is running for President. Unreal.” Misogynistic pencil dicked wingnut Matt Walsh makes the entirely unrelated joke that “If you think Kim Davis should be in prison but Hillary should be in the White House, you’re either an obtuse buffoon or a dishonest buffoon.” Not sure who sucked that joke out of whose cock, but it’s there.

Bryan Fischer is yammering like a fucking crybaby on his radio show — oh look, he’s circle-jerking with the aforementioned suspected pee enthusiast! — and we’re sure it’s just great, but we’ll just leave the butthurt fundamentalists of America with this comforting thought:

Contempt of court for failing to follow judges’ (plural!) orders is actually a thing, even if they’re laws you don’t like. We’re sorry. If you don’t like it, GO BACK TO MEXICO. Or go somewhere else. We just don’t care.

Oh sorry, was that not comforting? Whoops.

    Religious liberty is when every person has a right to define his or her marriage according to his or her religious beliefs (or lack thereof). The Supreme Court’s marriage ruling has granted religious freedom to millions of Americans. If you support religious freedom, you love this decision.

    • MsAnthropesMr

      No, religious freedom is when I get to define what you should do with your pee-pee and butthole. What you’ve described is anarchy. ANARCHY I tell you.

  • Tendernob

    Yeeeash. The fact Dana Loesch so dumb she doesn’t know the difference between “Democrats” and “southern Democrats” is… just… wow. I can’t even.

    Go back to giving Todd Starnes reacharound hand jobs on Fox, Dana.

    • That’s such a mismash of confused thinking, I can’t even snark about it. Davis is a liberal because she’s a Democrat (there’s a test, I guess?), but liberals are pretending she’s not a liberal because she’s so conservative. Buh?

      Swear to God, the right wing would burst into flames if they even once tried to actually understand what comes out of their mouths.

    • mtn_philosoph

      What the hell does Kim Davis’ party affiliation have to do with this? She defied a judge’s order and consequently was sent to jail, which is typically what happens when someone ignores a court order. End of story. The shit about about what ballot line she ran on during her most recent election is completely irrelevant..

  • Msgr_Moment

    I just think it’s amusing that the left is trying to pretend she’s not one of their own

    So, I guess that Kim Davis would be OK with a clerk of the court denying her petition to remarry based on the fact that she’s an adultering hoor?

    • Lefty Frizzell

      That’s different coz Jesus forgave her. It’s the secret christian ace. Although, fortunately, in this case, not a get-out-of-jail-free card.

      • MsAnthropesMr

        So what if I, a hypothetical gay marrier, promised to get right with the lord after gay-marrying. Would that be OK?

        • alwayspunkindrublic

          Only if they renounce gay-ism.

          • Lefty Frizzell

            Not strictly necessary, since each day you could be forgiven anew, as it were. See Duggar, Josh.

          • Zippy

            yup, throw that shit in their face 24/7

            Ulysses Everett McGill: I thought you said you was innocent of those charges?
            Delmar O’Donnell: Well I was lyin’. And the preacher says that that sin’s been warshed away too. Neither God nor man’s got nothin’ on me now.

            But why keep re-applying when you can get the lifetime Salvation Guarantee on the first purchase?

          • SuspectedDemocrat

            She didn’t have to renounce her 3rd husband, or whichever one she’s married to right now.

          • alwayspunkindrublic

            The hetero rules are more lenient.

          • Lefty Frizzell

            That’s true – even if she was forgiven for divorce and stuff she should have to recognize, in the light of salvation, that the 4th marriage isn’t allowed, and renounce it. Unless, as I suggest, one can get re-forgiven every day.

          • Billy Rubin

            Never underestimate the power of just making shit up when it’s convenient. Kim has much to teach us all.

        • Zippy

          I think all the gheys should just arbitrarily announce that Jeebus forgave them. Prove he didn’t, wingnuts…

          • Lefty Frizzell

            Exactly.

          • Tallmutha

            Well, see they say it’s different because the ghey are planning to go right on with their lives of sin.

            I can only say the next time Kim Davis steps even slightly out of line, she better get reborn again real fast.

          • Zippy

            just tell them that Jeebus changed his mind and has given them an ongoing forgiveness- he said so. Prove he didn’t

            Time to send this whole appeal to authority fallacy to the trash heap where it belongs

        • Lefty Frizzell

          That’s a curious one. The gay-marrying would still be hellbound wrong AT THE TIME, but you could make it OK retrospectively with the forgiveness after.

        • wide_stance_hubby

          That would depend on the clergy and how much “favor” you showed their church.

        • chazmanr

          The problem would likely be the gay divorce. You would have to get divorced in order to show God that you had repented, except that divorce is actually a thing that the Bible condemns. So, no, you are going to fucking HELL!

        • Riley Whodat Venable

          No, you would have to get a gay divorce so you weren’t gay married. Wait. That can’t be right, cause good Xtians don’t get divorced.
          See, you are just sinning all the time. Just like all of us.
          If there is a Jesus (debatable) we are supposed to be saved by grace, not actions.

  • Zippy

    It seems to me that Kim was a county clerk long before she claims to have been reborn. I don’t think you get to take a job, then demand they change that job description later on because reasons.

      Since it was a Federal judge who sentenced her, she’s go to a Federal low- security facility. As much as I dislike her, she shouldn’t be put with hardened criminals like in a state or county lockup.

      • elviouslyqueer

        Just had to school a college friend after being told that Kim may be a lot of things, but she’s not a hypocrite because she’s been “saved.” I pointed out that Windexing your spirituality through being “born again” doesn’t really work so well if you insist on sinning afterwards.

        • Villago Delenda Est

          She is an honorless cur, that’s what she is. If she were true to her principles, she’d resign from her office because she’s unable to faithfully execute it.

This is the same woman who, in high school, gossiped about all of the school sluts while she fucked anything that moved. It was okay for her, though, as she was saved. She still insists that as long as you’ve chosen the correct version of Jesus, you can fuck up all you want, as long as you say “oops, please forgive me, I won’t do it again this time, double-pinkie swear Jesus” afterwards. She’s still judgmental as hell.

      I actually thought the right might have been confused about this, because she is being jailed for not sufficiently respecting that Judge’s authoritah.

  • What I’m getting from all this is that the wingnuts couldn’t come up with any new rhetoric for this case.

  • The judge was Catholic. We have hundreds of Christians in the Federal legislature. The majority of SCOTUS is Christian. The President is Christian.

    Truly Christians are persecuted and being driven out of government jobs.

    Either that or Federal judges have a hard time accepting “God told me to do” as a legitimate reason to defy a legal court order.

  • kdl

    Davis has now said she’d rather stay in jail than agree that her clerks can issue the licenses. She is now fully on the martyr grift train. This has nothing to do with her own beliefs keeping her from issuing licenses.

  • If you are teaching in a catholic school, but tell your students not to go to church because _____ is a better religion, the school will say “don’t let the cross hit you in the ass on the way out.” Even if it is a deeply held religious belief, you are still doing the opposite of your job (teach, and support the church, or at least don’t oppose it). Kim Davis is like that teacher, thinking she can keep her job even if she vocally undermines her employer. It isn’t going to happen, it shouldn’t happen, and the only reason she is still drawing a paycheck is because no one has the power or guts to can her ass.

    • kdl

      My favorite example is if a Muslim running the DMV refused to give women drivers’ licenses. I’m sure Huckabee would be defending that exercise of “religious liberty” all over the place.

      • Villago Delenda Est

Although if I had to guess, since she is still drawing a salary, the only downside to jail is that she doesn’t get as many cameras thrust in her face. While that is a boon to the rest of us, it’s probably the only thing she misses about being out of jail. Well, that, and being hateful to people.

        • dshwa

          I’m sure there’s plenty of people for her to be all judgy towards in jail. It’s probably like heaven for her in that regard.

        • tomamitai

          I’ve seen articles that claim she makes $80K per year, so I doubt she lives in a trailer. The judge pointed to her income and to the likelihood that she’ll be getting donations from supporters as reasons for sending her to jail instead of fining her.

          • natoslug

            I’m Californian, so I have no concept of money. I’d assume $80K/year gets you a refrigerator box and a decent position in line at the soup kitchen.

          • natoslug

            It’s a good thing I’m not the judge. I’d fine her, and send her to jail. 6 months’ salary per day she doesn’t do her fucking job sounds fair.

          • Amy!

            The judge has to operate within the limits of judgeship, though, and there are other judges (appeals circuits) around that can say (judge) “You’re judgin’ rong!”

            Assholes happen on the bench (like the fucking clown in Tennessee, who’s actually in the county where Chattanooga is, and fuckifiknow how he got to be a judge), but there’s a whole judicial culture, and image, and stuff, and that means: the ones that take it seriously think about “what would the other judges say?” and that … works out, mostly. Not for the ones who don’t give a shit, like the Thomases and Scalias and Alitos, but for the ones who have more than two brain cells to rub together, yeah.

        As an attorney you lay out your clients options, then they choose whatever option they prefer, not the option preferred by the attorney.

        Not being an attorney (I have far too much self respect to join such a profession) I could be wrong, but I don’t believe I am.

        Idiocy Of Kim Is Yet Denied?

  • dshwa

    I still think the better answer (if it was legal, not sure because I’m not a lawyer) would have been to issue a restraining order barring her from entering the building where the county Clerk’s office isexcept on personal business, barring her specifically from the official staff part of the Clerk’s office, and ordering the remaining staff to enact their standard procedures for operation in the long term absence of the Clerk. No jail, no firing, no martyrdom, just a ban from the premises. The office carries on without her, and the county legislature and voters can decide if they want to pay her $80,000 a year to sit at home on her ass.

    Sure it’s not as satisfying as seeing her jailed, and I know that judges in general don’t like to let people get away with ignoring them, but it does block the narrative of persecution that just gets more entrenched by jailing her.

    • beavertank

      Unfortunately, that’s not the way contempt works. That could, maybe, be the end result of the trial if the plaintiffs request it… although it’s doubtful… but at this point, before a trial on the merits, before anything but a refusal to give her an injunction against issuing marriage licenses, it’s not really a potential outcome.

      • dshwa

        I wasn’t sure what leeway judges had for contempt sentencing other than jail or fines. It seemed like the best punishment fits the crime solution though, so I was hoping there was some room for the judge.

        • beavertank

          When it comes to contempt, you’ve got two choices: criminal or civil. Criminal lands you in jail, civil gets you fined. There’s not a lot of leeway there.

          • dshwa

            Oh well. So many good ideas have to be discarded simply because they don’t work.

          • Marcinema

            No, the judge said, he chose not to fine her, because her supporters would likely pay the fine, and she’d avoid punishment, that’s we he put her in jail. Smart move.

    • cmd

      He gave her a way out — 5 out of 6 deputies said they would issue licenses and judge seemed willing to let her out if she said she wouldn’t interfere with the deputies but she said no. Oh, and the one who wouldn’t agree to issue out of the 6 was her son.

      • dshwa

        So are those 5 free to file them now seeing as she’s not there?

        • cmd

          I don’t know how she would be able to interfere with them from jail but I don’t know. There’s also something in the law about county judges can issue them “in the absence of the clerk” or something, which, seems like she is (absent).

          • dshwa

            There would have to be some back up plan for absences.

        • Angry_Cop

          The judge has warned all that licenses issued without her signature may not be valid.

          The only way this gets fixed is that she gets removed from office. The good citizens of that fine town seem disinclined to do so. Hopefully they’ll see the light (bad publicity).

          • dshwa

            Seems like the next step is the couples ask the county to approve a temporary clerk in place of the absent of the official one. You would think there would be an official procedure on the books to handle any long term absence of the clerk due to illness or vacation, which would apply here.

          • LarkintheAM

            It’s Kentucky, so apparently not. The only recourse is for her to be impeached or resign, and neither is likely to happen.

          • dshwa

            Starange that there’s up plan for “acts of God” or whatever, that’s just basic logical need. Although, Kentucky.

    What part of just do your job or resign doesn’t the Head Huckster and his Minions understand? A resignation will allow Kim to follow her recently very important religious principles, and leave her free to maintain as much dignity as she can manage.

  • At least in jail she’ll be safe from all of the fundy Christianists who really do want to see her crucified for the cause.

    Wingnut drama queens strike again….hey deleted commenter douches! Yes, you know who you are and yes we know you’re reading, lurking and the Santorum that is your grey matter is stewing- this is what being an emotional baby looks like. When you bitch about a county clerk going to jail for refusing to abide by a court order as being the EXACT.SAME.THING as Nazi Germany, you are a drama queen. You all don’t recognize this because you’re probably crying into your sex pillow right now but you’re the overly emotional, illogical turds in this country. I just wanted to take a moment and point this out because if there is one thing that NEVER gets old it’s some untreated diaper rash chiming in about how “logical” these walking Shakespearean tragedies are versus liberals.

        He’s not being jailed (yet) because he can’t prevent the other clerks from issuing licenses, like dear auld mum. He’s not an elected official, so he can be fired, but that will have to wait until there’s a new clerk.

      To be fair, she seems to have skipped right over Leviticus 20:10 and all that business about adultery.

      Also too, all that Jesus talk in the Gospels about divorce and stuff.

      In fact, her appreciation for Leviticus seems restricted to 20:13 which is right there on the same page with the adultery stuff that says she needs to be stoned, and not with legal pot either.

      • harryeagar

        Be fair. She did all that sinning before she became a Christian. Well, probably she was a Christian all along but later she switched brands. So those sins are in the past, possibly repented of and forgiven, who knows?

        But now that she’s learned what god really wants, isn’t she obliged to go back to Husband #1,or at least quit cohabiting with #2/4?

        • DoILookAmused2u ?

          I think Husband #1 has suffered enough.

Her mother was clerk before her, uncontested, for 40 years, so her family’s been on this gravy train (her son is learning the job at his mother’s knee so that he can have it after her) for a long, long time. There’s no reason for her to give it up before she has to.

    Yeah, this is now a tremendous cause celebre for the wingnuts. They’ll be reminded of Davis’ “martyrdom” time after time ’til November 2016, by the Republicans and their nominees. They’ll come to believe, if they haven’t already–and it will become mantra with them, and we’ll see it repeated again and again, cut and pasted ad infinitum into the blogosphere–that Davis was persecuted for her religious beliefs. And so the Republican “base” will have even more incentive to come out and vote–even if the nominee is Trump.

    OK, I know that the whole gay marriage thing is a cause for them, too, but this “attack” on what they perceive to be “religion” has the potential to galvanize the Christian Taliban and its followers like almost nothing else could. And so I’m more pessimistic now than ever that the Democrats will be able to roll back the tide of stupid that overwhelmed us in the last two off-year elections.

    But maybe that’s just me. Bottom line–this is good news, but it may go south. (As it were.)

  • Helena Handbag

    “Thus the mildest criticism of religion is also the most radical and
    the most devastating one. Religion is man-made. Even the men who made it
    cannot agree on what their prophets or redeemers or gurus actually said or
    did. Still less can they hope to tell us the “meaning” of later discoveries
    and developments which were, when they began, either obstructed by
    their religion or denounced by them. And yet – the believers still claim to
    know! Not just to know, but to know everything. Not just to know that
    god exists, and that he created and supervised the whole enterprise, but
    also to know what “he” demands of us – from our diet to our observances
    to our sexual morality. In other words, in a vast and complicated
    discussion where we know more and more about less and less, yet can
    still hope for some enlightenment as we proceed, one faction – itself
    composed of warring factions – has the sheer arrogance to tell us that
    we already have all the essential information we need. Such stupidity,
    combined with such pride, should be enough on its own to exclude
    “belief” from the debate. The person who is certain, and who claims divine
    warrant for his certainty, belongs now to the infancy of our species.
    It may be a long farewell, but it has begun and, like all farewells,should not be protracted.”

    Breaking news! Kim Davis has just published her profound “Letter from a Kentucky Jail.” Here is a sneak preview:

    …”One may well ask: “How can you advocate breaking some laws and obeying others?” The answer lies in the fact that there are two types of laws: the ones I happen to like and the ones that make me feel funny in my underwear. I would be the first to advocate obeying the laws I like. In fact, one has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey the laws that I like. So, now that I have time, sitting here in this Supermax county detention center, chained in the dark to my cement pallet, taking nightly beatings from the vicious homosexual Christian-hating guards, and eating that wormy food loaf we like, I plan to go through the entire U.S. Code with a yellow highlighter and mark the laws I like, so that all yall will know which ones count.

    Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey the laws that squick Kim Davis. I would agree with St. Augustine that “an unjust law is one not tailored to my personal deeply held beliefs, which I acquired all the way back in 2011, when I had a freakout and joined some fringy local church.”

    Now, what is the difference between the two? How does one determine whether a law is Kim Davis-Approved or Not a Real Law? A Kim Davis law is a man made code that can only be decoded by Kim Davis, using the sekrit decoder ring provided by that evangelical Christian I saw on the teevee last week, I forget his name. An unjust law is a code that no one in America really likes, except for a couple of lawyers in Gomorrah-on-the-Potomac, which is not even part of Real America, and everyone knows they are Lesbos anyways. To put it in the terms of St. Thomas Aquinas, or Mike Huckabee, or one of those: An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in the local culture of rural Kentucky.

    In short, any law that uplifts human personality is just some socialist applesauce, or cedar cheese, or something. Any law that degrades human personality is probably OK, depending on whose personality it degrades.

    I almost feel sorry for her. She’s a rube and she’s being led down the primrose path by those shark lawyers from Liberty Council. They’re almost beside themselves – her getting jailed was just what they were hoping for. Now they’ll get to use her as a fundraiser (martyred Christian, jailed by godless activist judge for her beliefs!!), while she sits in jail until she resigns or capitulates – and you can be certain that they’ll be telling her to stay strong for Jesus. The longer she’s in there, the better the grift. For them. She, on the other hand, gets to sit in her jail cell for a good, long time while the wingnuts paint her with stimata and fundraise for themselves. Not that I think that she didn’t have it coming, but I hate that the evil bigots at Liberty are benefiting from this.

    • Jen_Baker_VA

      This is true. She really is the patsy to rile the rabid, and does not even know it, I suspect. She’s been whispered a ton of really bad advice.

      • Dee Andee

        My sister, the narcissist of our generation, has also been married and divorced four times. She is a recovering alcoholic, and was also “born again” about 10 years ago (which didn’t stop her from giving our mother the silent treatment for 5 years when they had an argument because well, she was the RIGHT one, dammit!). She also is against gay marriage because sanctity (riiight, sis). Fucking hypocrites, both of them, and if this one is any more like my sister, she’s not stupid, but she is ignorant, and she likes her little world view from her own little dirty window with the torn screen. She doesn’t want to look beyond that.

        Kim Davis may be getting messages of support, but you don’t hear them coming from people who know her–which tells me her friends are probably few and far between.

    At which point, she’ll quit the job she refuses to do (releasing her from the Court’s order), and settle noisily into Martyrdom retirement, taking up residence as a regular ‘Hannity’ guest as a hobby.

    Thing is, this is no abstraction like saying, “happy holidays.” To their minds, we are throwing christians in jail.

        • nmmagyar

          I really can’t see them getting all that worked up over this. She was a member of a fringe-sect, not a large, well-connected church; was a registered Democrat at some point; thrice divorced and conceived at least one child out of wedlock. Not an attractive poster-child for their side.

          • dshwa

    Actually, I do feel sorry for the Christians. When George W became president, many leftists threatened to leave and move to Canada. They had that option. The Christians have nowhere to go. If they want to live in a theocracy, the only ones currently available are Islamic.Kim Davis wouldn’t be a thrice divorced county clerk with out of wedlock children there. She’d be dead. Oh, and she wouldn’t be allowed to drive.

    Help, I can’t approve of this because of my hardcore prison abolitionism. I want her to have consequences for not doing her job, but jail is never the answer.

    • Spotts1701

      In this case the judge had three options: a) do nothing, b) fine her or c) jail her.

      Doing nothing obviously wasn’t acceptable since she was openly defying the law. He could fine her, but since there were pretty clear indications no matter what amount he fined her she would never actually have to pay it that really doesn’t do anything either. Thus option (c) became the only choice.
      And by tossing her into the klink, it freed her deputies (of whom 5 of 6 agreed to comply with the law) to begin issuing marriage licenses tomorrow. If he had issued a fine or done nothing, the people of Rowan County could essentially be waiting months for the Legislature to remove her.

      • sillybill

        also she would just get some sort of Gofundme campaign to pay any fines.

          If’n I was the judge, I would figure out a way to prohibit the acceptance of gifts until all penalties and fines were paid in full.

    “You know if you want to convince people that same-sex marriage is something that’s acceptable, I would say try to persuade people.”

    You said it best, Evan, but my stars and garters isn’t that exactly what happened? People were fucking persuaded. We made it a law. It’s how we do stuff here. It’s what you were taught in school makes our country great. So sorry not sorry.
    Also, when we start hearing how Christians in this country are being bullied and wrongly arrested and denied service by businesses or access to clubs and being beaten up because of their religion, then we can talk about persecution. And if that day should come, the persecution will not be because of you your religion, it will be because you are being complete and utter hypocrites about your own faith.

    • AQuinn

      It is what happened, and that’s awesome that people are finally starting to come around. The fact it is happening in my lifetime gives me the warm fuzzies.

      But even if it hadn’t, someone needs to tell him that there is no need to “try to persuade people”. No one is required to ask politely for their basic civil rights and then wait until people are ready to be “persuaded” (read: never).

  • Jukesgrrl

    If Dana Loesch can provide me with some proof that Kim Davis actually voted for Barack Hussein Obama for president even once, I’ll knit the jailbird a nice warm poncho like the one the Arch Criminal Martha “It’s a Good Thing” Stewart wore when she was locked up by the Feds in West Virginny. I’ll make it nice and big, too, so none of Kimmy’s sister detainettes can get a good look at her boobies. Because perverts, doncha know?

    Neil Steinberg of the Chicago Sun-Times had a great take on this:

    Having a duty you are ordered to perform that conflicts with the desires of the Lord God Almighty—in your own narrow, antique, fucked up notion of what religion means, that is—seems like a really good reason to turn in your resignation.

    But she doesn’t. Because she isn’t really trying to pay respect to her own notions of faith, but to mess with the lives of people she hates.

    • sillybill

      the same book of the the bible she uses to condemn teh gays with, states that she is actually guilty of multiple counts of adultery (divorced 4 times) so she should be stoned in the town square. with votes of course.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      Yes, he’s hit the nail on the head. This is about the spite. It’s incredibly un-Christian, but they do it anyway. They talk about hating the sin, but what they really do is hate the person they say is sinning.

      These are the people Jesus drove from the Temple.

  • Wee Mousie

    The criminalization of Christian LAWBREAKERS in this country is at hand, and it has been since 1789. This is just what those butthurt assholes have been screeching about forever — getting tough on crime. Except, that this path to justice wound slowly and through the courts in regulation style, while Ms. Davis sat on her tushy and refused to allow people legally permitted to marry the credentials they needed because her personal sky fairy said “No.”

    What the hell, if she had even read her Christianist Manual, she would know that she was advised to “render … unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s”. And for our purposes, Caesar equals the Federal government.

    But, if Ms. Davis believes the wrath of her God is awful to behold, she is about to learn that the wrath of a Supreme Court after she thumbed her nose at one of their decisions is nothing to provoke. Naturally, it won’t be quite so batshit crazy as, or excessive, as drowning everybody but a few favorites, or turning people into pillars of salt, but it will still be noteworthy.

  • JParkerSD46

    How ’bout can the lovely Ms. Davis soon be joined by those of her butt-buddies who are telling like-minded idiots that “there will be blood” (caller to Bryan Fischer) and “When does the civil war start?” (Matt Barber)? Isn’t there some prohibition regarding incitement to violence?

    We’ve been yukking it up all day about this, but Huckabee was right! I HAVE SEEN THE CRIMINALIZATION OF CHRISTIANITY!!! Tonight I watched in horror as city cops and county sheriffs showed up in full SWAT gear in front of the Baptist church across the street from my house. They kicked in the doors and lobbed tear gas cannisters inside. When the congregation came stumbling outside, snipers picked off the men one by one. They rounded up the screaming women and children and strung up the kids in front of their mothers. Finally, they herded the women into vans and took them away!!!

    Oh, wait… that didn’t happen. This whole thing is complete bullshit. But at least I haven’t heard a word about Hillary’s fucking emails today.

      It worked just fine when people holding such views could burn opponents at the stake.

  • The judge called Kim Davis back this afternoon and offered to let her out of jail if she would allow her deputy clerks to process marriage licenses without interference. She refused. That kind of destroys her argument that if Kentucky found another way to process marriages without her having to approve them it would protect her religious liberty. At this point she is just grandstanding with no intention of being reasonable. She needs to be jailed and lose her salary until she steps down or does her damn job.

    • Dee Andee

      You’re right, she just proved it. She’s in it for the attention. Drama Queen creates drama. Something tells me she’s been one all her life, but oh my, now that she has given herself to Jeebus she can go whole hog with the suffering martyr drama! It must be exciting. I wonder if she realizes though, that after she’s rotted in jail for a week or two, all of her bigwig republican wingnut support will have rotated back onto some other topic, like Michelle Obama’s school lunches, and she’ll be forgotten. She’s just one of those little people after all. Useful for the moment but not worth losing sleep or effort over in the long run.

      • Mintie

        I wish I could find the original article, but before the focus was on her multiple marriages, a journalist (or maybe multiple, I just read the one) pointed out that she’s got a serious history of being a bully to her neighbors. Apparently there has been decades’ worth of her and her mother throwing their weight around and making people miserable for the pettiest of reasons, and that this was just another incident of her doing whatever she wants to whomever she wants. The difference, being, of course, that the Federal government is too big and powerful for her to push around.

        • HeywoodJablomey

          Exactly- bitch thinks she’s running some kind of political dynasty there in Stickville and has the authori-tay to make the rules. I’ve had experience with her ‘type’.

        • Jeamonn

          Do you not believe that you can be a Democrat and a RWCNJ, or are you implying that Right Wing-nuttery is exclusively the domain of the Republican party? No one here ever said she wasn’t a Democrat. We just said she’s an asshole. Thanks for pointing out that despite her very Republican behavior she is in fact, a Democrat.

          • Ann Peirce

            So you’re making the case that she’s a LWDCNJ? Whatever you say. Kum-by-ya and Occupy Kentucky. I’ll remember to point out to the next Republican who’s embarrassed by something an elected Republican has done that the AH… was just displaying very Democratic behavior.

          • handyhippie65

            what has she done to get the left wing label? by getting elected as a democrat? not all democrats are left wingers. nothing in her actions show any left leaning tendencies, but they do show right leaning tendencies. hence she is a right wing christian nut job, regardless of her political party.

          • Ann Peirce

            Are you being intentionally obtuse? The woman is a *Democrat*. Not all Democrats may be Left Wing just as not all Republicans may be Right Wing. This is what a Left wing Democrat looks like and you can’t escape this with faulty reasoning. Occupy Kentucky…

          • handyhippie65

            as i say, what has she done to get a left wing description? she is not a left wing democrat. the left wingers are the ones who stand up FOR the right of gays to marry. she is standing up AGAINST their rights. you are the one with the faulty reasoning.

          • Ann Peirce

            Davis is a Democrat and if you insist upon labeling her a ‘wing’ then that would make Davis left wing. Perhaps you’re unaware that both Republicans and Democrats have supported gay marriage, just as there are both Republicans and Democrats who have declined that support. Those who operate on either end of the spectrum or the extremities are called wings. When those people are Democrats, they’re left wing and when they’re Republican they’re right wing. This isn’t hard to understand if you can accept the fact that there are extremists within both parties.

          • TheBidenator

            I think you need remedial education about the political spectrum as you don’t seem to understand it at all. Actually Davis while being a Democrat is far to the right of the Democratic party given her right wing religious leanings and I suspect numerous other issue positions. You can be on the right and still identify as a Democrat, in 1980 “Reagan Democrats” evinced this reality. Davis could only be a “left winger” if she identified with left wing stances such as the autonomy of women, economic fairness, strict gun control, pro-choice, gay rights, racial equality, gender equality, military restraint, social liberty, etc. The fringes operate based upon your proximity to the extreme left (Communism/Totalitarianism) or the extreme Right (Fascism/Authoritarianism) being a Democrat or a Republican does not place you exclusively on one side of the spectrum or the other….what a silly point to attempt to make.

          • Ann Peirce

            Pretty sure I do understand the political spectrum passably well. I think what’s deeply disturbing to Democrats is that when one of your own breaks out of the pen and embarrasses you by exhibiting qualities that cause you to confront the differences in thought that are represented in the Democratic political spectrum( that are absolutely mirrored on the right) your knee jerk reaction is to say that person can’t possibly be a Democrat.

            *Precisely* what Democrats would say about Jimmy Carter were he to run for the nomination today as a Democrat…too Christian, too southern, too rural, pro-life…just far too *right* wing, by today’s Democratic measure to ever be elected by Democrats.

          • handyhippie65

            exactly. i myself am a moderate independent, who thinks both the democrats, and the republicans are enemies of freedom. the dems. have the right, and the left, same as the repubs. she is a right wing dem, not a left wing dem. so your trying to insist she is left wing, is not going to work. calling her a right wing democrat is the correct term. hence the DINO comment earlier, as conservatives call a left wing republicans a RINO.

            No, A Democrat is still a Democrat and a Republican is still a Republican, each and every one falling somewhere within their separate political spectrum. To be either left or right of party center (and, really, it would be a gift to meet a centrist Democrat or Republican these days) doesn’t automatically align someone with the opposite political party.
            This DINO, RINO nonsense is the label used by politicians for those within their party who dare deviate in any way from the party line. The fact is that many do and when they do we see them find common ground that’s ripe for compromise.

          • handyhippie65

            i agree we need many more people willing to compromise. that is what diplomacy is all about. but this clerk was not willing to compromise, and allow another member of her staff issue the issue licenses to the couples. if she had, none of this would have been an issue. she would have her religious freedom, and the couples would have had their wedding. everyone wins.

          • Ann Peirce

            And this is where Title VII comes into play. It may be possible for her to receive what’s called accommodation and be moved within the clerk dept. It may not be possible as she’s an elected official. A special election may have to be held. A lot will depend upon whether Davis is willing to relinquish her position for another that’s neither a demotion or involves a cut in salary. She’s a Gov. employee and a union could be involved. Regardless, she had no right to stand in the way of her deputies performing their duties and for this she could be prosecuted or relieved of duty for cause.

          • handyhippie65

            she is an elected official, otherwise her political affiliation wouldn’t be an issue, and she would have been fired for dereliction of duty long ago, before this got so out of hand. she has had, and will get her day in court, but she has no legal standing. we have the right to hold any religious belief, we do not have the right to act upon those beliefs.

          • Ann Peirce

            Well, the fact that she’s an elected official does complicate the issue but firing for dereliction of duty would probably not be the way this could be handled by any other employer. To your earlier example of a practicing Muslim and Jew, let’s say that two gentlemen of that description were both employees in a restaurant or a deli where they both prepared food and served customers.

            The owner of the establishment had employed these two gentlemen for more than a year when he made the decision to add pork barbecue sliders to the menu and to serve alcohol. This constitutes a change in the scope and description of the duties these men would be newly expected to perform and both would find aspects of those duties objectionable on religious grounds.
            They could go to their employer and explain that handling pork products and serving alcohol would present a problem for them and ask if they could be exempted from both and still keep their jobs, or they could refuse to prepare or to serve those items from the menu, or they could quit.

            Title VII would require that the employer make reasonable accommodation for these men unless it would present an undue hardship. An employer can’t just fire an employee who refuses to perform certain duties because of a religious objection.

            Davis actively interfered with *others* doing their jobs. Jailed for contempt of court. There will probably be a settlement made that will very likely be unsatisfactory to all parties involved.

        • Jen_Baker_VA

          Just pointing out, it is not bigotry to point out bigotry, and at least Dems will condemn one of “their own” when they do wrong.

          • Ann Peirce

            The Democrats do NOT condemn one of their own when they do wrong any more than the Republicans do. First defense is to deny any association with the party (as some are trying to do here!), and if that doesn’t work they try to shift blame or claim the miscreant was set up by a vast….conspiracy, pick right or left wing, it doesn’t matter. Sorry, but that’s the way it works, left or right.

        • handyhippie65

          she is a right wing christian nut job, who got elected as a democrat. she is definitely not in step with the democrat party as a whole. in fact she is in direct opposition to it. do you think she will be allowed to run as a democrat again in the future?

          • Ann Peirce

            I doubt that she’ll run for office again, but chances are that she’ll still identify herself as a Democrat.

          • handyhippie65

            which goes to show how backward kentucky really is. i lived there for a year, none of this really suprises me. everyone claiming to hate the government while sucking on it’s golden teat. if it wasn’t for food stamps, and welfare, the south would have starved years ago. that’s why i moved. it was pretty to visit, but no where to live.

        • Then why haven’t you just said as much instead of doing the “she’s a Democrat, pure and simple” line over and over and over? Just say bigotry is not limited to a political party and there would be few who would disagree with you.

          But you’re harping on her being a Democrat for a reason, and I think we all know what it is. You want all Democrats in this forum to hang our heads and say, “Oh you’re right, we’re shit just like Kim Davis. I guess you Republicans are God’s chosen people.” Well, lady, fuck that. I’m standing up and saying “YES, BIGOTS ARE BOTH DEMOCRATIC AND REPUBLICAN.”

          You can harp about this until you go blue (HAHAHAHA, see what I did there?) but it doesn’t change anything about this case. It just makes you look petulant and tiresome.

    • MrCanoehead

      She’s a DINO.

      • Ann Peirce

        No, she’s a Democrat. She may not be the kind of Democrat you want to be associated with in the media, but she’s still a Democrat. The ‘No True Scotsman’ defense doesn’t work for Democrats any better than it does for Republicans. Sorry about that.

        • handyhippie65

          she may be a democrat, but she has right wing conservative values. someone like her wouldn’t have a chance in the primaries in a blue state. same as a pro choice, pro union republican would never win in a red state, but get may elected in a blue one.

          • Ann Peirce

            No, she’s a Democrat, plain and simple, and she’s standing by her Democratic political and Christian religious values. She’s not right in this case and I expect she’ll be removed from office.
            Since it seems you want to talk about who might be unelectable, let’s talk about Jimmy Carter. A candidate vilified at the time he was running for the Democratic nomination by the oh so sophisticated Democratic crowd, headed by Teddy Kennedy. They declared that Carter wasn’t enough like them and launched the ABC movement (Anyone BUT Carter) to keep him from being nominated.

            Carter was a candidate from the rural south so Democrats called him a “hick peanut farmer”. They sneered at him because he taught Sunday School and was a close personal friend of Billy Graham. Some Democrats whispered that since Carter had been a naval officer he might be a war monger in disguise. Democrats were embarrassed by Carter’s lack of back room political connections and his unwillingness to give and accept political favors within the party. They made fun of his accent and his family members for those who remember Billy Carter and Billy Beer. They said his daughter was unattractive and his wife too unsophisticated to fit in with the Democratic Washington elite

            Democrats weren’t happy that Roselyn Carter intended to tackle the issue of mental illness as First Lady instead of something more benign, like roadside beautification. AND, Carter was pro-life…and remains do to this day. Carter has remarked, on several occasions that he’s well aware that he couldn’t be nominated by the Democratic Party of today.

          • handyhippie65

            democrat political values at the present are equality, and inclusiveness. how does she represent that? i remember carter’s presidency. what does he have to do with this contemptuous county clerk?

          • Ann Peirce

            No, not all Democrats favor inclusiveness nor do they all necessarily favor equality. A great many of today’s Democrats are vehemently intolerant of the religious and of religion in general. Many Democrats wouldn’t dream of nominating a religious, pro-life Democratic candidate were Carter to run today. That was my point. Carter’s religious beliefs and his pro-life values haven’t stripped him of the fact that he’s still a Democrat.

            Democrats come in many variations of value and belief/nonbelief, just as Republicans do. If you think Davis, who was elected as a Democrat, by Democrats is operating on the outskirts of the political spectrum of what you think represents main stream Democratic thought, then you could reasonably label her a left wing Democrat, but not right wing.

          • handyhippie65

            right and left are the terms currently used to describe political positions. conservative, traditional views are labeled right, and liberal, progressive positions are labeled left. her actions are definitely conservative, and traditional. do you deny that?

          • Ann Peirce

            She’s openly religious, does this make her conservative? She openly defied the law, does this make her progressive, like the Occupy protestors who invaded houses in Baltimore and refused to be evicted by the police?

            Is she anti-gay marriage (and clearly because of religious objections) like the African American pastors in this article who were among those who endorsed Obama? It isn’t quite as cut and dried or black and white as you appear to believe.
            http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/05/15/black-pastors-gay-marriage-michigan_n_5332496.html

          • handyhippie65

            yes, the openly, and devoutly religious are generally conservative in their opinions. i was raised a baptist, and my uncle is still a deacon in his church. i live in a rural part of a conservative state. why do you connect law breaking with the left? there are many criminals who are conservatives, felons, even. i ask you this, what if instead of being a devout christian seeking to impose her religious rules on the public, she were a devout muslim, and sought to impose islamic religious rules instead? or an ultra orthodox jew? what is the difference? none that i can see.

          • Ann Peirce

            Possibly because you’ve attributed intolerance and exclusivity and anti-gay marriage solely with conservative thinking. My point is that, just like Republicans, Democrats have to own their outliers. Felons, criminals, philanderers, liars, and the like are well represented in both parties, just as there are many intelligent and trustworthy people in both camps.
            The comparison between a refusal to perform her duties due to a religious objection isn’t quite the same as it would be if she were refusing to issue licenses to marry to anyone who was not Christian or intending to be married in a Christian religious service. She wasn’t imposing in that way…, she was denying service and claiming that the county’s forcing her to issue licenses to gay couples was an imposition upon her religious beliefs. She held those beliefs and the job prior to the legality of gay marriage. Her position is that the job changed, she didn’t.
            If Davis were Muslim and refused to issue licenses to those who weren’t practicing Muslims or, similarly, with regard to orthodox judaism. then the conditions would be the same as Davis’ requirement that licenses only be issued to Christians. If a Muslim or an Orthodox Jew objected to processing licenses for gay couples and instructed others to follow suit, we would have the very same impasse and probable outcome.
            Title VII accommodations could be offered to Davis and if accepted this religiously offended clerk could be moved to other duties within the office, but none of them, regardless of religious belief would have the right to impose their beliefs or restrictions upon others, whether they be upon couples seeking licenses or upon subordinates who were also processing licenses.

          • handyhippie65

            i attribute that because that is what my conservative christian family, neighbors, and customers tell me. i have yet to meet a self proclaimed liberal who is against gay marriage. all of the self proclaimed conservatives i know are overwhelmingly, absolutely against homosexuality and marriage equality. i know what the bible says, and i know what the constitution says, having read both. they disagree on many things. in this country, it is the constitution that is supreme, and the one i put my faith in. you are free to disagree, and that is why america is great. freedom of choice.

          • Ann Peirce

            I can’t speak to the anecdotal information you say you’ve received from family, friends and customers. Surely you must know that there are those who are self proclaimed Liberals who are, or have recently been, opposed to gay marriage. Hillary Clinton and Obama to name two who claim to have “evolved”, Hillary since 2013 and Obama since assuming the presidency. In 2013 there were more than ten Democrats in Congress who voted against a gay marriage act. Again, this issue and those who have been in support… are not nearly so clearly defined as you seem to believe.

            Yes, we do have the Constitution and we have the Bible (many versions) and a great many other religious texts and philosophies represented in this country. I can’t say that I would put my “faith” in the Constitution any more than I would necessarily place my faith in any particular religious text knowing that all of these documents have undergone a great many revisions and interpretations over centuries of time, the Constitution among them being a document that’s under constant scrutiny, debate and legal interpretation.

            The way in which the Constitution serves us best and has stood the test of time is in upholding the principle of equality under the law.

            Have a look at Title VII one of these days and it will give you a clearer picture about how the law protects the rights of those newly able to seek a marriage license and those who issue them, each with their own unique rights and responsibilities to be preserved and respected. Neither the left or the right has a lock on virtue, btw.

            There have always been Conservatives in favor of gay marriage and Conservative gay members of Congress-

            Hillary hasn’t always been supportive of gay marriage equality. Bill wasn’t necessarily gay-friendly, either.

        Actually, your link notwithstanding, being anti-gay marriage and being aligned with Liberty Counsel are both solidly right-wing things. Your link leads to a report on groups that are responding in a solidly right-wing way by being anti-gay marriage, the report does not make this less right-wing.
        On another note, you are wrong with the implication that today’s Democrat is generally against religion. It certainly has not been my experience.

It’s the common ‘No True Scotsman’ defense that BOTH Republicans and Democrats employ in these circumstances.

          Well, there does seem to be some desperation in Democrats trying to make a case that Davis is a ‘red headed step child’, if you know what that means.

      • As a Democrat, I don’t give a damn if Davis is also a registered Dem. I don’t own her backward ass just like she doesn’t own my progressive one. She could call herself a Silly Party voter for all the importance her political alignment has. She’s wrong. Period.

        Your party affiliation, my party affiliation, Kim Davis’ party affiliation… all meaningless. What we say and what we do makes us progressive or regressive. Democrat and Republican are convenient labels for a very broad spectrum of political beliefs, which is simply another problem with the (de facto) enforcement of our two-party system.

        Other things which don’t have any bearing on Kim Davis’ case: What she looks like, who she sleeps with, which god she thinks she’s talking to, her age, her race, her gender, or what she had for breakfast on the day she went to jail. The issue is this: When the time came to follow the law of the land, she refused to to her job. She was ordered several times to do it and continued to refuse, and now she is in jail. This is no more or less than a case of a person who refuses to do her job and refuses to comply with a court order.

        Anything else we say about the case is what WE bring to it, not Ms. Davis.

        Or she could be offered a Title VII accommodation on grounds of religious objection. The county could move her to another job without it reflecting as a demotion or cut in pay, for the duration of her tenure in office and place someone in her present position as a temporary hire or hold an interim election. There are options. She might not choose to accept the accommodation and would then have to resign.

          She was elected to her position. She can’t be moved or demoted, and without calling in a special session, which costs the voters a ton of money, the only options for reprimanding her are fining her or jailing her.

          In his statement about the ruling, the judge expressed concern that supporters of Kim would pay the fines for her, which would defeat the purpose of fines altogether, so jail-time it is.

          And Kim can leave any time she wants. By not agreeing to resign, do her damn job, or let the deputy clerks handle gay marriage certificates so she doesn’t have to, she is choosing to stay in prison. The judge is expected to pull her out towards the end of next week, and see if she’s changed her mind, and her asshat of a lawyer is saying they will appeal this, but in the meantime, Kim is going to cool her heels in jail — unless she decides to choose one of the three options.

She pays taxes that fund all sorts of “sinful” things, including the SCOTUS justices’ salaries who ruled gay marriage is legal FFS. Not to mention the hypocrisy surrounding her own personal history, which doesn’t reconcile AT ALL with her precious bibble teachings about the sanctity of marriage. The whole thing is just so illogical. She got on a self-righteous little fucking power trip and developed a martyr complex over it, thinking she could somehow defy a Supreme Court ruling.
