It's God's Way

Speaking of god, let's talk about Kim Davis and her refusal to grant marriage licenses to Gays, something that has, thank god, become legal, which means Kim, by law, has to do the drill. Because she's devout, she will not do said drill so, she was jailed for not following the letter of the law. A few days later, she was released and ...

CNN correspondent Martin Savidge, who was at the jail, explained following the order that her attorney, Harry Mihet, said that the judge had ordered the release because her office had satisfied the court by issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples while she was behind bars.

“The problem here is that the attorney says she has not changed her mind, that Kim Davis is adamant that as long as her name appears on those marriage licenses, she objects and she will attempt to stop those licenses from being distributed," Savidge reported. “Which means if she goes back on the job as is expected, she will bring the process to a halt. That’s what her attorneys believe."

So ... lets think about this. Imagine what it would be like if the Kim Davis' of the world had their way, courtesy the SC's rulings on Greece NY and Hobby Lobby, whereby the "freedom" of religion scenario would permit all kinds of prejudices to issue forth from elimination of gay marriage to the striking down of women's rights and god knows what else, with enforcement being provided for by administering biblical punishments like stoning or crucifixion in order to not infringe upon one's religious beliefs like those of the Kim Davis' of the world. Sounds like ISIS anyone?

Without question, the Founding Fathers, as imperfect as they were, would have reacted with supreme distaste as they knew, as products of the Age of Reason, that separation of church and state was essential to preclude the kinds of excesses religion dominated governances tend to generate as seen by Europe, beginning with Ferland & Isabella using the Jesuits and the Inquisition to keep their subjects in line while Columbus made his way to the Americas with and end result of 250,000+ indians enslaved or killed using god (and mammon) as the path to their "enlightenment" in order to enrich the coffers of Spain.

Think about it, kind of scary isn't it?

Addendum: Without question, this tweet refutes the logic space of the Kim Davis' of the world.
