Kim Davis, the Kentucky woman who had been refusing gay couples marriage licenses, despite the Supreme Court’s recent decision, is now in jail, according to AP. Davis claimed she wasn’t giving out marriage licenses due to being a Christian.
This is the first time in history that an American citizen has been incarcerated for having the belief of conscience that marriage is a union between one man and one woman. The judge who ordered Davis to jail stated that her religious beliefs don’t allow her to disobey the law. Davis told the judge that “God’s moral law” conflicts with her job duties.
That’s cute and all, but doesn’t Christianity also call for patience and understanding? Acting ugly toward people is certainly not the way to be more like Jesus. Let’s also point out that this woman has been married four times (and divorced three) so, obviously she’s not the one who should be passing judgment on anyone.
