A rant about court clerk Kim Davis

WARNING:  THIS IS A RANT!  I have to get something off my chest.  It’s about that court clerk, Kim Davis who is now in jail for “contempt of court” for refusing to issue marriage licenses to homosexuals. I cannot believe the number of believers (including at least one Jewish RABBI) who are “liking” memes that put her down for her own “faults” – ie., having been married several times!

Well, first of all, these marriages and divorces happened BEFORE she became a believer; and secondly, we DO NOT KNOW  the cause of the divorces.  If the causes were adultery, then according to Scripture, she was allowed to divorce.   Regardless, we have no right to judge what she did BEFORE she became a believer, so knock off the judgment, those who are busy wagging your tongues!

SECONDLY – and most importantly:  Kim Davis had the GUTS to stand up for YHWH who calls homosexuality AN ABOMINATION!  (I would do the same thing!)  HIS Word trumps any human court!   So, let’s not sit there all high and mighty and call her names and suggest she deserves jail because this is “about our civil liberties” which supposedly “trump freedom FROM religion.”  (Yes, I saw that on a rabbi’s post, which proves he wouldn’t know YHWH if he fell on Him!) 

Yes, I believe Kim Davis needs to lose her job/resign/whatever, because if her “religious beliefs” interfere that much with her job, then she needs to move over and let someone else do that particular job.  But what a SAD commentary on our government, our people and our entire nation that it has come to this – that “religious” (I hate that term!) folks can be FIRED, JAILED and basically “verbally killed” by the “holier-than-thou” throngs  because of her desire to do GOD’s will!  
SHAME ON our PAGAN, GODLESS government for forcing ALL of us to accept homosexuality as “normal!”  It is NOT normal!   Shame on our President – that supposed “Christian” – for paving the way for “gay marriage”!!!!   What a monstrosity America has become!   SHAME! 

John 16: 1. I have spoken these things with you that you might not stumble.  2. For they will drive you out from their assemblies and will come a time that all who kill you will think that they offer an offering to Elohim.  3. And they will do these things because they know neither my Father nor myself.  (AENT)

2 Timothy 3: 1. But know this: That in the latter days hard times will come:  2. and men will be lovers of themselves and lovers of money, boasters, proud, revilers, unyielding towards their own people, deniers of grace, wicked,  3. unloving, addicted to irreconcilable malicious gossips, ferocious, haters of the good,  4. treacherous, rash, inflated, attached to pleasure more than to the love of Elohim,  5. having a form of respect for Elohim but wide from the power of Elohim. Them who are such, repel from you.  6. For of them are they who creep into this and that house and captivate the women who are plunged in sins and led away by divers lusts,  7. who are always learning, and can never come to the knowledge of the truth. (AENT)

  1. Thanks for that 'rant'. It sums up well where we are at and what we face in a Nation that has forgotten 'from whence we came'.

  2. You're welcome! I couldn't help myself. After putting up with this kind of nonsense all day yesterday on Facebook, I FINALLY "blew a cork" over the mean-spirited comments and posters/memes. I hate it when "religious folks" get in on this type of thing, espousing God out one side of their mouths, while committing lashon hara/gossip out the other, about things they know nothing about. I'd like to see all those who made those mean comments being put in the "same boat' as Kim, and let's see how THEY would react! Judging from most of the comments, MOST wouldn't have the backbone to do what she did! They "talk God" but their hearts are far from Him (Matthew 15:8)

    1 Peter 3:14. But if it should occur that you suffer on account of righteousness, happy are you. And be not terrified by those who would terrify you, nor be in uproar: 15. but sanctify Master YHWH the Mashiyach, in your hearts. And be you ready for a vindication before everyone who demands of you an account of the hope of your faith, 16. in meekness and respect, as having a good conscience; so that they who speak against you as bad men may be ashamed for having maligned your good conduct in the Mashiyach. 17. For it is profitable to you that you suffer evil while you do good deeds, if this should be the pleasure of Elohim; and not, while you do evil deeds. 18. For the Mashiyach also once died for our sins, the righteous for sinners; that he might bring you to Elohim. And he died in body but lived in spirit. (AENT)

  3. David Barton of the website "WallBuilders" wrote (and I will do this in two or three parts, because the comments section can only handle 4,096 characters at a time):

    The judge was not authorized to have her arrested, yet the federal marshal acted on his illegal order.

    "Perhaps the single most important issue in the Kim Davis situation (the County Clerk in Rowan County, Kentucky, who was jailed for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses) -- an issue about which most observers and commentators have been completely silent -- is the flagrant violation of the constitutionally-mandated separation of powers.

    "By way of background, Federal Judge David Bunning ruled that Davis was in contempt of court, which a court can legitimately do. But he then ordered federal marshals enforce his decision and take her into custody, which he cannot do. Federal marshals are part of the Executive Branch, not the Judicial Branch; he has absolutely no authority to order any federal marshal to do anything.

    "Significantly, the Founders -- and thus the Constitution -- did not give power to the Judiciary to enforce any of its decisions -- they deliberately made it powerless in this regards. They made the Executive Branch alone responsible for enforcement.

    "So while Judge Bunning can (and did) issue his personal opinion regarding Kim Davis, his personal opinion does not have the force of law. (By the way, check any civics book: a law must originate as a measure proposed in the House or Senate, be passed by both, and then signed by the president. Only then and by this means does anything become law.) Bunning must thus ask (not order) the Executive Branch to enforce his opinion, and if it agrees, it can order its marshals to do so, but the Judicial Branch may order no such thing.

    "Sadly, not only did the Judicial Branch first take on itself the role of the Legislative Branch by issuing its ruling in the homosexual-marriage decision, but now it has assumed the role of the Executive Branch by attempting to enforce its own opinion. The Founding Fathers vehemently objected to this practice. As George Washington warned:

    "'[T]hose entrusted with its [the nation’s] administration [must] confine themselves within their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in the exercise of the powers of one department to encroach upon another. The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all the departments in one and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism.'

  4. Continuation of David Barton's website comments:

    "James Madison similarly charged:

    "'The preservation of a free government requires not merely that the metes and bounds which separate each department of power be universally maintained but more especially that neither of them be suffered to overleap the great barrier which defends the rights of the people. The rulers who are guilty of such an encroachment exceed the commission from which they derive their authority and are tyrants. The people who submit to it are governed by laws made neither by themselves nor by an authority derived from them and are slaves.'

    "Samuel Adams agreed:

    "'In all good governments, the Legislative, Executive, and Judiciary powers are confined within the limits of their respective departments. If therefore it should be found that . . . either of the departments aforesaid should interfere with another, it will, if continued, essentially alter the Constitution, and may, in time, . . . be productive of such convulsions as may shake the political ground upon which we now happily stand.'

    "Thomas Jefferson thus admonished that we must 'cleave to the salutary distribution of powers which that [i.e., the Constitution] has established" and that if we ever move away from its separation of powers that "we shall be in danger of foundering.'

    "Perhaps political philosopher Charles de Montesquieu -- a favorite of the Founders, and the most-cited human source in the political writings of the Founding Era -- said it best when he declared:

    "'There is no liberty if the power of judging be not separated from the legislative and executive powers.'

    "So while the Kim Davis travesty continues, perhaps the most dangerous aspect of the entire controversy is that Judge Bunning personally ordered her to jail, thus blatantly violating one of the Constitution's most important provisions for securing the liberty of the entire people."

  5. Hi,

    Agree with this post and actually, regarding the following:

    Shame on our President – that supposed “Christian” – for paving the way for “gay marriage”!!!!

    it's worse than that. He was against gay marriage before he was for it. And even worse, the sacrilege against the rainbow when the White House was bathed in multi-colored lights. That cannot have been good for the leaders of the country in which to take part.

    Thanks
