Last week I wrote about Religious liberty and the rule of law in America and a clerk in Kentucky who had refused to marry gay couples on the grounds of her religious belief. Her problem was that she was in direct contravention of the ruling of the Supreme Court of America.
And the Empire strikes back!
The charge was contempt of court where the Courts issued a very clear statement about the relative importance of the rule of law and individual religious beliefs.
Naturally enough, Kim Davis is now the darling of the lunatic right and the martyr to the cause of religious freedom.
Now, clearly Kim Davis’s manager could have quietly moved her to another job where she wasn’t required to marry gay couples.
But someone decided to have a showdown. Gunfight at the OK corral over gay marriage!
Now here’s a good example of a good guy with a gun.
