Let me take you all back to the year 2015.
Remember the name Kim Davis? Ring a bell? No?
Seriously how could we forget this whack job even if we tried?
In the event that this name has slipped your mind in recent years, let me give you a refresher. This is the gem of a lady who worked as a County clerk in Rowan County and took it upon herself to deny same-sex couples marriage licences. Like she woke up on a random weekday and said “No! Do not pass go!” Can you even imagine these lovebirds’ faces? Why? She claimed she was working under “God’s authority” and apparently she saw herself as The Man Upstair’s right-hand gal. Look. I’m not judging (lie) but I am gonna go out on a limb and just grossly assume that Kim had not been appointed to the grand task of halting all gay marriage.
I wonder if Ms. Davis ever fathomed in her wildest of dream that she would find psydo-celebrity status by waking up one day for work, pulling rank on un-assuming homosexuals just trying to legalize their love and sky rocket to the ugly title of Anti-Gay Head Honcho. (Disclaimer: This is not an actual title, I have bestowed it upon her. I mean if the shoe fits…) Recently the Kim Davis Bill crept on through Texas. While myself and other ranty-ranters were busy lambasting Texas for waging war against pregnant mothers and their rights and becoming the hub for the the anti-vaccing movement, this bill snuck on through the Senate. The bill basically allows for County clerks to refuse marriage licences to same-sex couples if the marriage violates the clerk’s “sincerely held religious belief.” (Insert eye roll.) I mean really what is next? Teachers refusing to teach students who might be homosexual or who have openly gay parents? EMT’s refusing to help or save people of a different sexual orientation? I can not say I am surprised Texas. Disappointed yes… definitely not surprised.
On top of having a Bill coined in her name, Ms. Davis was then asked to speak at The National Day of Prayer. The former clerk of No-Where-Super-Special-Land was invited by Pastor Tom Acree of Apostolic Sanctuary to speak at the event. “We chose her because she went through a trying time for her faith, and prayer was the avenue for her to have … hope and peace and comfort” during the situation, Acree said. “She allowed God to help her and enable her to endure the persecution” she experienced at the time, Acree said.
Well look at you Ms. Davis. Aren’t you a beacon of…ok, I’ll say it. Idiocy. Have fun at National Prayer Day. Maybe all of those people will pray for you to come out on top of your most recent lawsuit. Yes that’s right. Girl is getting sued for her righteous move in the clerks office.
