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
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.
OMG! Comparing this woman to Rosa Parks shows me that the ones doing the comparison had no idea what the Rosa Parks incident was all about. This is an ignornt woman who tried to use her religion to get everyone else to practice her religion. Would the same circumstances have went so well for her if she did this same thing and was Islamic? I doubt it, and that's soemthing that the Christians do not see.
Then we have Huckabee and others coming to her aid, etc. These people are pandering for votes. If it wasn't for that fact nobody in the public eye would have gave a tinkers dam about Kim Davis. She broke the law. That just about says it all.
Political hay stills is being loads just as the mounds of bullshit. The is another media generated piece that wasn't worthy of a couple graffs on the inside pages. I am also tired of the Hillary Clinton thing. Drop it already or do something about it, otherwise let this bullshit drop.
Steve Sack's editorial cartoon is perfect:
Man ... could you get any more black and white (literally and figuratively) than that?
Amen! Of course, many of these comments come from bonifide Confederate flaggers who this act is comparable. They believe that if Rosa Parks could do it, then they are entitled. Of course, a simple reading of the country's founding documents would change that, but we all know that is a silly suggestion. I apologize.
