Pat, I hadn't previously encountered the lovely and insightful Website you linked. Thanks for making my day!

Kim, once she's established as a media sensation (and she has every bit as much charisma as Mary Lou Retton) could start a side business with Sarah Palin. They could establish a high end (so to speak) colonic spa in D.C. for constipated Republicans.)

Bertold, you make a great point. A franchise on Fox News? TBN? Daily Stormer? Breitbart? NewsMax (When news breaks we fix it, and ohhhhhh, do we fix it!). I see shekels in her future from the bigoted Trump supporters. 

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on September 3, 2015 at 6:51pm

KY update - NPR just noted that the County Clerk proposed a compromise by which Kim would be excused from issuing licenses herself if she would promise not to interfere with her clerks. She refused. Most likely at this point she's seeing dollar signs beckoning as much as the gates of heaven.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on September 3, 2015 at 5:20pm

This should be such a simple and straightforward case, and it could be easily settled, no fuss, no bother. Kim is asking for a special right, not to perform part of her job responsibilities. So, all she needs to do is show incontrovertible proof of her claim, that signing her name to a marriage license for a same-sex couple will directly result in her spending an eternity in hell. If this is true, I'm for her, her request is reasonable. Without that proof? Why are we even wasting money on legal proceedings?

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on September 3, 2015 at 3:34pm

LOL, Bertold.That sounds like a good idea.

Good point about bible injunctions and selective behavior, Daniel.

Comment by Daniel Wachenheim on September 3, 2015 at 2:32pm
I am pretty sure there is nothing in the bible saying that Jesus requires Kim Davis to be the county clerk in Kentucky.

There are some things saying that Kim Davis' serial marriages are adulterous, and that she should be stoned for that. Unclear what kind of stones, but either granite or flint will usually suffice.

How many divorced persons has she refused to allow go remarry?
Comment by Bertold Brautigan on September 3, 2015 at 1:50pm

Impeachment is probably not terribly likely in KY. How about if instead they sentence her to keep this billboard in her front yard?

Comment by Loren Miller on September 3, 2015 at 1:34pm

Best news I've heard in a while, Pat.  It'd be nice if this incident were a wake-up call for those who think they can bring their religion to work with them and shove it down the throats of those they work with or for, but with the Hobby Lobby decision as backdrop, I'm still not certain.

The way I've heard it to this point, to actually REMOVE her from her job, she needs to be impeached.  Now here's the $64 question: will that actually HAPPEN???

Comment by Pat on September 3, 2015 at 12:50pm

Breaking News! The Kentucky Kristian Klerk who won't follow the law has been found to be in contempt of Court and jailed. Actually, she got what she wanted. Which, IMHO, was attention paid to her. And the Konservative Kristian Klowns were all too eager to make her the poster child for their cause. What I do wonder, however, is this. When the dust settles, and it turns out she has to pay the other side's attorneys fees and costs, is the American Family Council, Tony Perkins, the Liberty Council, or any other right wing group going to step up to the plate and help her financially? Yeah. Didn't think so.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on September 3, 2015 at 10:50am

Actually both the LGBT community and the atheist community owe Fischer and his ilk a great debt of thanks for making crystal clear to all those millennials listening and watching out there that literalist religion truly is an insane source of bigotry and hatred just as it appears to the even slightly discerning eye.
