I'm writing of Kim Davis, the Kentucky court clerk who has just been jailed by a rogue judge until she agrees to issue marriage licenses to those engaged in homosexual perversion. See here. There's complaints from the judicial activists about her taking an oath - an oath which I suspect was administered with her hand on a Bible. That gesture is NOT a meaningless tradition. Anyway, before liberals tut-tut against Ms. Davis for "defying rule of law", they might wish to refresh their memories a tad.
Mike Huckabee had this to say: "Having Kim Davis in federal custody removes all doubt of the criminalization of Christianity in our country. We must defend religious liberty and never surrender to judicial tyranny. Five unelected Supreme Court lawyers did not and cannot make law. They can only make rulings. The Supreme Court is not the Supreme branch and it's certainly not the Supreme Being. I am proud of Kim for standing strong for her beliefs. Who will be next? Pastors? Photographers? Caterers? Florists? This is a reckless, appalling, out-of-control decision that undermines the Constitution of the United States and our fundamental right to religious liberty."
Ted Cruz also issued a statement to which I'll link. Towards the end we read "We are a country founded on Judeo-Christian values, founded by those fleeing religious oppression and seeking a land where we could worship God and live according to our faith, without being imprisoned for doing so." That's just historical fact.
Huckabee asked "who's next?" Actually folks from all those fields have been attacked and persecuted for not bowing before the gay-nazi baals and molechs of the day - and we are being attacked by highly placed and highly paid henchmen. This is why several years ago I coined the phrase "niggers of the new age" to describe the increasing hostility we're facing precisely because we are Christians who obey God.
In a discussion about Ms. Davis' situation, I said of her, "her witness stings their guilty consciences so they are driven to punish her for her beliefs. Such was the case with John the Baptist, St Stephen, just about every martyr and anyone who upholds Christian morality. They want blood." The progressives resent our stance for it makes plain the sinfulness of their conduct. When I said "they want blood", I was not speaking metaphorically.
Let us stand with brave Christians like Ms Davis and speak out against her mistreatment - while we still some freedoms left.
By the way - I just popped over to the USCCB site to see if they issued any sort of statement, as did Huckabee and Cruz. Not a peep, and I'm not surprised. If anyone sees any such statement, please drop a line in the combox.
