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 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!
Makes perfect sense.
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:
Can she be impeached? I'm serious.
