Kim Davis’ faith trumps courtesy and civility

Kim Davis

I’m sure you are all weary of Kim Davis. But I couldn’t let this pass without comment.

In her self-congratulatory Holy Martyr interview with Megyn Kelly, Davis said this:

She said while behind bars she “talked to the Lord” and “sang praises to Him, at the top of my lungs. They probably thought I was insane in there.”

To me this exemplifies exactly what kind of person is Kim Davis.

There were guards and likely other prisoners in jail, none of whom wanted to hear her shrieking and wailing at the top of her lungs. But that is immaterial to Davis. It’s all about her and what she wants to do. And because of “her faith”, she doesn’t have to be considerate of others or follow the rules that apply to everyone else.

She has that “I drank the Kool-Aid, you can too.” kind of look on her face in the photo above.
Amazing to me that belief in an invisible, non-evidential sky-daddy who tells you what to do, can have as much credence with the American public as it does.

“They probably thought I was insane in there.”

And they were right.

Nailed it.

Unlike all those times when she didn’t bother following the scriptures she supposedly follows (you know, loving her neighbor, obeying the government, not being a hypocrite, etc.), she actually decided to take them literally for once (*cough* Acts 16:25 *cough* … never mind that that passage is descriptive rather than prescriptive, but textual interpretation seems to not be her strong suit).

She IS insane


September 25th, 2015

If this insane imbecile happens to be elected, what does it speak about the people who put her in place?

And she’s elected as a DEMOCRAT. I get shivers just thinking what a Republican elected where she is would be like.

One of the essential characteristics of those on the “Christian” right, as displayed by every single “martyr” we’ve seen, aside from overweening arrogance, is an absolutely breathtaking degree of narcissism, reflected in their assumption that someone else’s marriage is about them.


September 25th, 2015

At that level and in that place there probably isn’t too much difference between Democrats and Republicans. She’s probably a Democrat because her mother was a Democrat and she was running for her mother’s office. BTW has anyone read or seen anything on what her mother, the former county clerk, thinks of all this?

I think her mother is dead Erp.

Guard and other prisoners: Gimme a loud drunk, any day, over this!

No question this is “wanna be on TV” narcissism. There are sincerely mistaken Christians who object to same sex marriage on the basis of it being Not Godly, and who wouldn’t be caught making a spectacle of themselves.

“And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen.

Who said that?

No one important to modern Christianity.

I was in jail briefly for a non-violent direct action by Soulforce on behalf of LGBT rights 15 years ago. What I remember about it was how hellishly noisy the place was. Kim just added to it.


September 25th, 2015

Apparently Davis has now left the Democratic party and has registered herself as a Republican.


September 25th, 2015

I haven’t found anything about her mother dying, only about her stepping down. Now it is possible her mother has since died but that would have been within the last year and almost certainly would have shown up in the Rowan county news. It is possible she is incapable of commenting (illness, extended trip to the antipodes) or that she has chosen not to comment.

I could easily be mistaken. I thought Kim took over after her mother died.

What Are Little Boys Made Of?

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers. This story is a stark reminder that there are severe and damaging consequences when therapists try to ensure that boys will be boys.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.
