Kim Davis Jailed – Is This Our Fate?

Kim Davis Jailed – Is This Our Fate?

In 2004, 75% of Kentucky voters passed a State Constitutional Amendment restricting marriage to one man and one woman. On Thursday, Sept. 3, County Clerk Kim Davis was sent to jail by U.S. District Judge David Bunning because she refuses to issue “gay marriage” licenses, a decision which she says is rooted in her strong Christian faith.


County Clerk Kim Davis turns down homosexual couple seeking marriage license. From NY Times video. Watch the video here.

The judge told her that she’ll stay in jail until she’s willing to change her mind — and go against her conscience and faith. He said that he’d review the situation in a week. The judge said that he jailed her because fining her  “would not bring about the desired result of compliance”.

There are approximately 125 county officials throughout Kentucky who can issue “gay marriage” licenses. But the judge was adamant that every county official must be forced to do it and that religious freedom cannot be allowed, despite the First Amendment. “The idea of natural law superseding this court’s authority would be a dangerous precedent indeed,” he said.

 The now-infamous mug shot of Kim Davis taken as she was brought into jail. Is this our fate?

    As I said above I hope this woman has the strength of her convictions and is able to persevere with her wrongful imprisonment because otherwise there will be more cases of religious freedom being swept aside and people being forced to accept things which they believe to be wrong.

    Kim Davis has been released from prison – read more

    Don’t miss the remark from Hillary Clinton at the end – a woman “upholds the law” about as faithfully as any of the Great Train Robbers. Now that IS hypocrisy, coming from a would-be President of the USA. Laugh? I thought I’d never start…

    Also, here’s an interesting report on the subject of the increasing pro-homosexual bias at Fox News, as demonstrated in the Kim Davis coverage, from Americans For Truth – note the video clips

    I notice that catholicconvert has what appears to be Cardinal Newman as is avatar. I wonder if he realises that Cardinal Newman was gay.

    Editor: rubbish. Cardinal Newman was absolutely NOT homosexual. This rumour was spread by the nasty Tatchell activists and has no foundation in truth whatsoever. Here’s an extract from a report on the matter:

    As rumours of Newman’s alleged sexual orientation swept the world, Archbishop Angelo Amato, the prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Sainthood, asked an expert on Newman’s life to respond.

    He personally commissioned the Dr Ker, a theologian at Oxford University and the world’s leading Newman scholar, to refute the allegations in an article for the Vatican’s newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano.

    Father Ker, the author of the definitive biography of Newman, said there was no evidence to suggest that the cardinal was gay other than the deep grief at the death of his closest friend and the request to be buried in the same grave as him.

    ‘If wanting to be buried in the same grave as someone else indicates some kind of sexual feelings for the other person, then C. S. Lewis’s brother Warnie, who is buried in the same grave in accordance with both brothers’ wishes, must have had incestuous feelings for his brother which were mutual,’ wrote Father Ker. Source

    Game, as they say, set – as they also say – and match.

    Note: since this comment on Cardinal Newman is off topic, I have kept this newcomer in the moderation queue. He will not be permitted to comment here unless and until he does so within our terms and conditions as set out in the About Us section. First rule, stick to the topic. Best, then, if others do not respond to this post, although if anyone feels driven to publish anything further in defence of the Cardinal, I’ll turn a blind eye to that 😀

    Oh and Stuart, before you accuse me of not allowing free speech – guilty as charged. Report me to that American judge: now that there’s a vacancy in his local jail for people who reject his PC immorality, he may well see me as a suitable replacement for Kim Davis. I’m resigned to my fate… 😯

    “…we are the reproach of the rich, the contempt of the proud.” – Psalm 122

    How about this for a revealing glimpse of the gargantuan hypocrisy of leftist liberalism? No doubt these imbeciles with degrees are full of concern for polar bears.

    Really, this is nothing less than total war against the Social Kingship of Christ. I doubt very much whether these antichrist intellectual regressives are man enough to do any dirty work themselves. And if the Islamic rapists and throat slitters aren’t about the place, carrying out the red persecution, the law enforcement and judicial apparatus will do the needful in providing them with the white version.

    Just consider that what passes for University education now amounts to little more than groupthink and Alinskyite indoctrination camp propagation of the destructive evil of the Frankfurt School.

    If someone is unfamiliar with the cultural Marxism vector that is the Frankfurt School, the following should help.

    “For behold God is my helper, and the Lord is the protector of my soul.
    “Turn back evil upon mine enemies and destroy them in Thy truth.” – Psalm 53

    We know the ending. The Immaculata crushes the head of the serpent.

    Pray that these pseudo-educated spewers of hate convert before it is too late, and get off the bus to perdition.

    I have posted the following more than once before, but in these days of diabolically possessed revolt against the Social Kingship of Christ throughout what used to be termed the “Civilised World”, and the accompanying persecution conducted by the secularist, sexualist commissars, the minions of lucifer, the following really excellent article from the late Anthony Fraser, should make salutary reading for anyone still in an apathetic stupor.

    The link is courtesy of another robust defender of the Faith, The Eye-witness blog.

    There is plenty I could pick out for quoting, but hopefully the following will encourage people to devote a few very well spent minutes to reading this really excellent article.

    “The Henry the Eighths of this world and the LGBT lobby are not content to indulge in sinful behaviour. They want us to admit that it is not a sin: that their behaviour is natural. They don’t want anyone to disturb their improperly formed consciences even through silent dissent. They want to abuse our consciences. They want us to lie to satisfy their erroneous consciences. But as Solzhenitsyn warned us in From Under the Rubble(3): ‘ DO NOT LIE! DO NOT TAKE PART IN THE LIE! DO NOT SUPPORT THE LIE! … and then he explains ‘What does it mean, not to lie? It doesn’t mean going around preaching the truth at the top of your voice (perish the thought!). It doesn’t even mean muttering what you think in an undertone. It simply means: not saying what you don’t think, and that includes not whispering, not opening your mouth, not raising your hand, not casting your vote, not feigning a smile, not lending your presence, not standing up and not cheering.’ (4)
    As the above DOJ document indicates, ‘not saying what you don’t think’ is not an option: it is tantamount to silence – a silence which the high priests of secular humanism will not tolerate no less than would Stalin, Henry VIII, or Herodius.”

    “No sin has greater power over the soul than the one of cursed sodomy, which was always detested by all those who lived according to God….. Such passion for undue forms borders on madness. This vice disturbs the intellect, breaks an elevated and generous state of soul, drags great thoughts to petty ones, makes [men] pusillanimous and irascible, obstinate and hardened, servilely soft and incapable of anything. Furthermore, the will, being agitated by the insatiable drive for pleasure, no longer follows reason, but furor…. Someone who lived practicing the vice of sodomy will suffer more pains in Hell than anyone else, because this is the worst sin that there is.” – St. Bernardine of Siena, Predica XXXIX, in Le prediche volgari (Milan: Rizzoli, 1936), pp. 869ff., 915, in F. Bernadei, op. cit., pp. 11f

    Repeat: “This vice disturbs the intellect…” and “the will, being agitated by the insatiable drive for pleasure, no longer follows reason, but furor”.

    Well, the insane beat just goes on and on. Now the doctors are in the crosshairs. I just wonder how many psychiatrists are going to publicly stand up for sanity. The way things are going, we might expect that they’ll struggle to make up a football team, and that might be a five-a-side team.

      Leo,

      The loud silence from the medical profession on the subject of homosexuality and its ill-health effects (both physical and mental) is a particular interest of mine.

      A year or so ago I was having a minor procedure carried out in a hospital where two doctors a nurse were attending me (no, it wasn’t a brain scan and no they didn’t find one… 😀 )

      Anyway, the conversation turned to some issue on the subject in the news at the time, and I said what I’ve written in my first paragraph above. Now, we’d been laughing and joking throughout – until I said what I said: that I just couldn’t understand why doctors were not speaking out, when they MUST know that this behaviour is unhealthy.

      Silence. Total silence reigned thereafter. So, they know. Culpable and complicit are the terms that spring to mind…

    So, it looks like doctors are going to be required to take the hypocritic oath.
