Rowan County, KY clerk Kim Davis jailed; I hope Anthony Kennedy is satisfied September 4, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in abdication of duty, Basics, disaster, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, paganism, persecution, sadness, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, sickness, Society.
We must remember who, ultimately, caused all this. Impersonal “forces” don’t make or change laws, they don’t create broad social trends. Individual men and women do. In terms of the pro-sodomy revolution inflicted on this country, ONE man, a supposed Catholic in good standing, a man who is regularly feted and fawned over by bishop and cardinal, has brought this nightmare upon us. He is responsible for Kim Davis’ incarceration and the scandal and suffering of millions of souls. Never forget that.
For it was Anthony Kennedy who wrote the ludicrous Lawrence vs. Texas decision in 2003, the decision that made Obergefell a foregone conclusion. It was Anthony Kennedy who cast the deciding vote in favor of legalizing pseudo-sodo-marriage at the federal level in 2013, and Anthony Kennedy who cast the deciding vote in Obergefell in 2015, applying this sick and deranged law to the 50 states. Yes I know Sotomayor also voted in favor in both cases, but does anyone really think, deep down, she fancies herself a faithful Catholic? Anthony Kennedy does. And not only did he cast the deciding votes, he also lectured us that the ONLY possible opposition to sodomy and its cultural glorification is bigotry. Apparently, Jesus Christ, Saint Paul, Saint Augustine, Saint Peter…….all bigots. What a laugh.
This pseudo-sodo-marriage law is unjust, it is tyrannical, and it will see more and more faithful souls crushed over time:
An innocent woman is in prison tonight in Kentucky. Her name is Kim Davis.
She is in prison because one of the laws of her country, the United States of America, is unjust. [Oh it’s far more than just one. Abortion, liberal divorce, usury, invasion of privacy, violation of subsidiarity, there are thousands of unjust laws in this “land of the free.”]
She has, rightly, refused to obey that law.
According to that unjust law, she must abandon her own deeply held belief and accept the justice of the law, or be arrested and jailed.
She has chosen to accept arrest and jail rather than abandon her belief.
So begins a confrontation that was inevitable, a conflict between judicial tyranny and individual courage……
…..Kim is the first of many US citizens unwilling to abandon their principles before such an unjust law. [Will it be many? There are apparently two other Kentucky county clerks refusing to issue psuedo-sodo-marriage licenses, and a handful have resigned, but I don’t see anything like mass opposition. More on that later]
The consequence today? One of the saddest — and most shocking — things ever to happen in modern America: an ordinary American citizen has been dragged off to prison simply for refusing to violate her Christian beliefs on marriage. [Shades of the 60s civil rights movement, which the sodomites have tried to co-opt to their side, but which is a laugh now that they have the power of the state at their backs, which power, to a great degree, they’ve enjoyed at least since Lawrence. A lot of Christians went to jail for violating unjust Jim Crow laws]
She was sent to jail for contempt by federal judge David L. Bunning [son of Senator Jim Bunning and an unworthy appointee] after she stood by her refusal to issue marriage licenses to homosexual couples seeking them under the tainted June 26 US Supreme Court decision which imposed homosexual “marriage” on all 50 states — including [the 30] states whose people and legislatures had voted to prohibit it.
Davis said she had “no choice” because issuing the licenses would have conflicted with her religious beliefs.
Though lawyers for the homosexual couples had asked the judge to fine Ms. Davis rather than send her to jail, the judge imposed jail time anyway, saying he thought a fine would be insufficient to force her compliance. [Please understand this point. If you take away nothing else from this post, please get this: YOU WILL BE MADE TO COMPLY. Or you will be made to suffer. That’s your choice. Decide now, and prepare for your fate.]So this is what it has come to: the US government is applying force to induce a person to do what she knows is wrong. [Ummm……they’ve been doing it for decades]This is clearly a form of tyranny.An unprecedented new type of dictatorship has begun to take power in America.The Christian opposition to homosexual “marriage” has become, in the eyes of this regime, pernicious — something to be severely punished.
I agree. However, I fear that like abortion, over time, the matter will become institutionalized, with forces on both sides and a lot of money tied in with each, encouraging a low-level civil struggle to go on for decades, while the moral heart of this nation continues to corrode (if it even has one anymore).
Already in Rowan County, they have found souls willing to compromise and issue marriage licenses in Davis’ absence. They always do. They make a brutal example of a few and then virtually everyone, save a few “crazies,” quickly fall into line. There will probably be opposition here or there, but very manageable levels of opposition. I greatly fear that over time, even the vast majority of relatively faithful Christians will silently accommodate themselves to this unjust law.
I do have a question, though. Is marriage now a matter for the federal government? I thought even with Obergefell’s imposition of a universal marriage law that marriage licenses were still issued by counties within states, not the federal government. How is it, then, that Davis is consigned to a federal prison? Just because the case got elevated to that level?
