First, let me get this off of my chest. To compare this slut to Rosa Parks warrants me calling her such a name. She broke the law! Plus, she stepped over the bounds of church and state  division. Now, let's look at Mrs. Woods record for following Biblical scripture.

"Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her. And she divorce her husband marries another man, she commits adultery." Mark 10:2-12

"Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery, and the man that marries a divorced woman commits adultery." Luke: 16-18

"I hate divorce," says the LORD God of Israel, "and I hate a man's covering himself with violence as well as with his garment," says the LORD Almighty. So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith." Malachi: 2:16
"I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife,  except for marital unfaithfulness and marries another woman commits adultery." Mathew 19: 8-9
For such a righteous person, apparently her own marital status is certainly in question under the biblical parable. Many Christians try to argue an escape clause in the Bible. THERE IS! Now back to this woman. A victory for Christianity? Since 75% of the country is CHRISTIAN, what is the issue. Is it that Christians are having their feet held to the fire on their on behavior. She works for the state! She is under oath to carry out the laws of the state. I she swore an oath she is in trouble under biblical principle. If she pretended to swear in, then she is dishonest..
Although the circumstances are different, Jesus made it clear regarding taxes when trying the Pharisees tried to trapped him regarding paying taxes, but Jesus had an answer as he said, "Render unto Caesar what is Caesars and unto God what is God's.

I don't mind god having his share but he's such a greedy fucker.

She didn't just break the law, she violated her oath of office.  Like many fundamentalist christians, she thinks that god's law supersedes human law.  In the United States, that doesn't fly, or at minimum, it damned well shouldn't.

Here's the thing, though: if she once again refuses to issue marriage licenses to gay or Lesbian couples, not only is she in violation of her oath, she's in contempt of Judge Bunning's court ... and somehow, I don't think he will take that very well.

Loren: On target! I think Christians are feeling the pressure of people leaving their country club. Even George Barna reports that more than 90 million people claim no religion. Back to Rosa Parks, this is what some are trying to hail this event. She is no Rosa Parks. She is not even a rose bush.

Now you've got the bull population pissed!

This sounded like a Trumphism. But Hickabee fits the bill just as well.
And,yes,... that's deliberately misspelled.
As for Wallace he was my father's hero. I remember him watching the old clips that portions of are currently being re-played and wonder how l turned out to be the total opposite! May be a generational thing or early life exposer to different races. I'll never know!
You two crack me up. Had to be immaculate conception. The previous size of his belly wouldn't have allowed for the usual way. Then again maybe his masculine attributes is the reason his brain is oxygen deprived

Parthenogenesis, probably!

Makes perfect sense.

LOL!

Your first paragraph nails it. (No pun intended; Davis should not become a martyr!) She broke the law, and went out of her way to prevent her deputies from doing her job for her.

David L. Caster, commenting at Joe.My.God. (before Davis was jailed for contempt of court, and then released this week, with a strict warning not to interfere with her office issuing marriage licenses), explained why bringing up her religious hypocrisy -- while a factor in the court of public opinion -- actually helps those who'd like to entangle church and state:

The situation is actually much worse than anybody seems to have understood.

Notice how the debate has changed. Staver et al and his Liberty Counsel have managed to single-handedly shift the debate from a purely legal one to a question of Biblical morality. Even Dan Savage fell for it.

This is one of the most insidious attacks on our secular system in decades. When Dan Savage, Steve Kornacki, and even others here have been sucked into the plot by adopting the terminology and rhetoric of Christianist morality and opprobrium then we have lost touch with our secular ideals.

All of the marital "sins" of Davis are irrelevant. She has refused to do her job. She is in defiance of federal courts and has thumbed her nose at the laws of the United States and her own state. These are sufficient reasons for her to be removed from office and charged with contempt of court and jailed if necessary.

We must never arrive at a point where the contents of any sacred text come into testimony for the purposes of denying anyone their rights or to defend breaking the law. Yes, LC and the rest of the Antigay Industry will raise money on this but the real damage is to political discourse and the way we see the law.

(Bolding is mine. When you hit the link, give it a few seconds for the comments to load.)

Can she be impeached? I'm serious.

She can be impeached but the cost is prohibitive. And it would probably fail in the end because ky is a very, very, red state. You can look at our election maps and see a few little pockets of blue around Louisville and Lexington. But the majority are red. I was redistricted from my voting poll of fifteen years last time because it was the one small area that has a large democrat base. We now have to drive to a poll that's 15miles out of the way. Who wants to do that?
