Re: Kim Davis:  
I've been trying to basically stay off the topic, as there is enough bullshit being said without my spouting off any further about it. However, I feel the urge to say this, which started with a comment elsewhere:
"I'm willing to go against my personal ethic to not resort to violence for the chance to punch her in the mouth. So fucking sick of this useless waste of oxygen. And, really, what a sulk-fest, passive-aggressive load of crap, all this BS about choosing between her job and her faith, and this other line about making a point of putting that it was by court order on there...what-the-fuck-ever, Kim. Dammit, why hasn't someone just set her on fire. Johnson said that patriotism was the last refuge of the scoundrel...but I think we might want to add 'religion' into that quote."
Kim, you are a disgrace to your job, your religion, your country, and your species. You are on a list of people that make me sad to be human, and your bullshit bigotry is a sad example of low-intelligence belligerence in the face of change. Your continued reluctance to simply be a decent human being is worthy only of scorn and invective, and history will bear this out. This country, one of freedom and democracy, has been through movements that have seen the end (legally, at least) of discriminations and the establishment of equal rights for all genders and all races. Hell, you wouldn't even be able to HAVE the job you so self-righteously shit on if we hadn't been through this before. For you to simply repeat the losing fight of history shows a marked lack of intelligence, social awareness, and character.

Grow up, Kim. Stop hiding behind a flag and a cross to justify your hatred. You have already proven that your god's laws are not to be explicitly followed (divorce? hmm?), so why stoop to this, which is a fuzzy area anyway? Sign the damn papers, it doesn't make YOU gay, any more than someone signing gun licenses is condoning violence and murder or someone singing a bar's liquor license is cheering on drunkenness. But then, doing that would not make you famous, would it?

You know what would, though? Doing your job and being happy about it. Show the world the Kim Davis of love, acceptance, and passion. Go on record as saying "in Kentucky, we like everyone, and we're not afraid to show that we are FOR love and AGAINST hate!" Of course, I guess that'd make you go against your principles, too, huh? Guess you'll go on being the sad, boring, hateful, spiteful, small person you have shown the world.

The world will continue to move on...with or without you.

I thought you might like this: A southern baptist minister who discusses how religious liberty IS at stake, but in the opposite way that Kim Davis and her supporters think it is.

"If Davis’s decision and actions were allowed to stand, then based on precedent, government officials could refuse any licenses or services to any citizen based on 'religious convictions.' A veritable Pandora’s Box would open."

Exactamundo! These zealots don't think any farther forward than the next five minutes, and they don't seem to see how their moment of success will get used against them.

My whole entire take on it is that the supreme court declared gay marriages legal in the US, therefore denying anyone a marriage license FOR ANY REASON is illegal. This includes exercising your religious freedom.

If your religion is more important than doing your job, you need a new job. You have every right to your opinions and beliefs, and no right to your job. Most states are At Will anyway. If she isn't doing the job, she doesn't get to keep it. End of story.

I wish I knew how you managed to stay true to lj and avoid the fb web that caught the rest of us.... I despise fb... but still I log into the drama.... I wish the majority of my friends stayed here too... it was good fun and simple here... somehow the new people you met here were good people. How did you manage to keep lj your main nesting ground when everyone else migrated to the hell that is fb. I miss the good ole days. :( much love to ya... Sommy

Sommer! Wow, blast from the past...how the Hell are ya?

Don't get me wrong, I'm over at FB, too, and not posting here like I want to. Seems like no one is here hardly, and if I wanna keep up with people, I gotta be there, but I dislike it for way too many reasons. LJ will always be my preferred format, and I'm really trying to be here more.
