Dear Ms. Davis,
Holy Same Sex Marriage Drama Sister! So let me get this straight – you are the queen of the marriage licenses in Kentucky (I’m sure that’s the official title on your business cards) and you are REFUSING to hand out marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
Just as the nation was celebrating a giant step forward in progress with the recent Supreme Court ruling for gay marriage, you were shaking your head saying, “oh hell no.”
Why? The Bible.
As fast as you could say King James…happy gay couples came seeking marriage licenses from your office. You refused saying you had it on “God’s Authority” to refuse them.
Oh God’s Authority! We have something in common. See I have it on God’s Authority that I don’t have to follow the speed limit. God feels that the speed limit is too restricting for my personality. He believes that since he provided man the ability to make fast cars that I shouldn’t be restricted to a 65 mph speed limit. Some days I should just be able to drive as fast as I want. I know that message isn’t in the Bible, but trust me – he told that me when we were having our one-on-one talks. It will be in the next version of the Bible. It’s over due for an update.
I’m sure the next time I get pulled over for speeding, the trooper will be super cool when I tell them that I have it on God’s Authority to break the law. Hell Ms. Davis is doing it so everyone should be able to do it.
I also find it fascinating that you have been married four times. I guess the Bible doesn’t clarify how MANY heterosexual marriages are okey dokey with the Lord – just that they are between a man and a woman. Heck you are getting up into Elizabeth Taylor numbers here. That takes some balls to deny marriage licenses to happy homosexual couples when you are punching the frequent flyer member ticket to the altar.
But who are we to judge?
I guess you are.
Oh and you are also A-OK giving out marriage licenses to 16-year-old kiddos in Kentucky since that’s the age that teens can get married with their parents permission. I don’t recall your name in the paper defying those orders. You aren’t willing to go to jail to prevent teenagers from marrying. I guess just gay teenagers.
Well good luck with your Biblical quest. I’m trying to predict how this will turn out. They say looking back is our best way to tell the future. There were people who opposed interracial marrying saying it was against what was written in the Bible. Fast forward to today. Weird – interracial marrying is still happening and it’s not against the law.
Well enjoy your time in jail if that is where this journey leads you. I hear men love to write to female inmates. Maybe you can find a new husband – #5?
Yours for marriage equality and speeding on God’s authority,
p.s. Here is a little secret – if you don’t like what you are asked to do at work, you can quit.
