Commentary on Kim Davis

1441894039460

The news has been runnin’ wild with stories about this formerly unknown county clerk named Kim Davis who made headlines because she refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. In short, the Bible says it’s wrong, she’s abiding by her religious faith, and all that jazz that right wing pseudo-Christians love to impose on the world.

As a side note, it seems to be the only “belief” so-called “good” Christians, those to the right of the political aisle, are heavily focused on. It seems no other verse or chapter from the Bible is as important as the infamous Leviticus 18:22. They don’t take other parts from the Bible as seriously as that one as evidenced through their actions. You may have seen the type. They are against gay marriage but they’re not as against adultery.

Those on the right believe in “God’s authority” but they rarely practice it. And that’s where Kim Davis came in, despite her being in her third, or is it fourth(?) marriage and having a child by a former husband while still being married to another one. But then again, conservatives are so falsely “worried” about other people’s businesses but rarely do they take the time to look at themselves in the mirror and examine their own flaws. But then again, gay marriage is no flaw by any means. But to the right, it is. Why? The Bible says so.

It seems to be the only thing the Bible says about anything when it comes to these religious nuts.

Davis was arrested and was later freed. Immediately after her release, she was hailed as a hero along the ranks of the likes of Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King by none other than the right, the same people who appropriated the aforementioned civil rights leaders for their own means. But to do so is not only incorrect, but downright ridiculous. Both Parks and King fought against prejudice. Davis fought for prejudice. There is no comparison to be made, unless you want to compare Kim Davis to the likes of deceased former Governor of Alabama George Wallace, Then it would be more sensible.

As this sage plays out in the national media landscape, we will continue to see those like Kim Davis who uses God, religion and the Bible to advocate in the name of bigotry and hatred. We will definitely see it from the likes of right wing foot soldiers, and possibly from the left as well. Marriage should be between two people who love each other regardless of their gender. And it looks like the struggle for this right is reaching a tipping point in which more and more people favor it. However, there will always be other people like Davis who will not have any of it as they believe they’re acting in favor of a higher power, a power they see themselves as, haters of all things necessary, just and progressive.

  1. The situation involving Kim Davis once again shines a spot light on the confliction of the so-called conservative, religious RIGHT who are also claim to have a monopoly on morality. The religious RIGHT are no more religious or moral than the Deacon who stumbles out of the back door of the church after Sunday sermon due to being intoxicated from consuming too much alcohol the night before.

    Kim Davis has a right under the U.S. Constitution to refuse to issue marriage licenses if it is against her religious conviction not to do so. Hell, … I would’ve done the same darn thing if I was a county clerk. A man laying with another man or a woman laying with another woman is in fact WRONG. So says Yahawa (God): “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” (Leviticus 18:22).

    For the most part, these are essentially the same people who see no wrong when an unarmed black man, woman or child is murdered in cold blood by a racist cop. These are the essentially the same people who largely consider Michelle and Barack Obama to be monkeys or sub-human types, simply because they’re of the black race. The conservatives’ collective level of drunkenness confliction and pompousness has certainly gotten the best of them these days. I no longer wonder why they’re incapable of seeing the sickness of same-sex marriage for what it truly is. God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve!

    Confliction! Confliction!

    1. I don’t agree with what Blakksage said in regards to same-sex marriage. Like my article says, marriage should be between two people who love each other no matter what gender they are. I never understood what the big deal is, but many “Christians” want everyone to believe what they believe as far as who gets married to who. They don’t seem to be as vocal when it comes to other issues, many of which are way more important than same-sex marriage.

  2. She needs to find another job she needs to work somewhere where her religious beliefs won’t be compromised. She can’t force her spiritual beliefs on others.

  3. She is the type of white Christian that is bigoted against others that don’t fight the white American mindset. Remember the KKK called themselves Christians too.

  4. @Brothawolf and @TeddyBearDaddy,

    hang on a minute, allow me to grab some more tissue to wipe my eyes due to prolong laughter. Ok, … I’m clearing my throat. Now, I’m back!

    I’ll make this as short as possible considering the nature of the post. Blogging is partly about people’s opinion and submitting facts to back up your point if at all possible. Posting on a blog has never been about synchronizing your beliefs or opinions with another blogger. Personally, I try to keep it simple when posting to a blog. But I will never do as Brothawolf did to me. When responding to TeddyBear, you should’ve said that you don’t agree with me, however, Blakksage is entitled to his own opinion. However, you response to TeddyBear underhandedly stated that I SHOULDN’T have my own opinion and that my opinion should be consistent with yours and his. Ummhhh, … sorry ’bout that, … that will never happen!

    Just like the North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA). Does either one of you really think it’s right for a man to stick his penis between the buttocks of a little boy??

    One last question for both of you: Does either one of you consider same sex-marriage or a man having sexual relations with a little boy as a legitimate signifier of SOCIAL PROGRESS or on the other hand, does it truly point towards America’s DECADENCE???

    I believe Brothawolf already answered this question because he has already stated, “marriage should be between two people who love each other no matter what gender they are.” I could go on and on and on here, but I will not. Why? Because it’s too damn comical! In any event, both of you ponder upon these verses for your further edification.

    If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them (Leviticus 20:13).

    Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful (Psalm 1:1).

    I wish both of you gentlemen a pleasant day! (grabbing more tissue, … chuckles!)

  5. Correction: Kim Davis is the type of white Christian that is also a bigoted against others she has the same bigoted mindset as white supremacist. Remember the KKK called themselves Christians too. Those Oath Keepers want to protect her so if those beast want to protect her that just goes to show you what kind of white person she is. The Oath Keepers are white supremacist they are nothing but modern day Klan members.

  6. For the hundredth time… Black man/woman, who gave you **cough, forced/coerced/slaughtered your people, cough** your religion? Your Christian beLIEf system? Yes, white folk. I can’t stand to hear people in general brag about “their god” but blacks quoting scripture the WORST!

    You act as if it was easy as being called up to the alter on Sunday. Just know your antecedents paid the ultimate price for NOT accepting this whitewashed religion. I ask this to the clerk and anyone who speaks of what the bible says is right or wrong. What version do you read? If it’s The King James Version know that he, himself, was a flaming bisexual who committed matricide and had the biggest charter of slave ships in the Atlantic.

    Keep in mind only white folks can revise the bible. That should’ve sent a clear msg to all of you that worship that bs your viewed as inferior and that like any and everything else in this country was not designed w/you in mind.

    Quit saying word of god. If you believe that then Jesus/God is white. Who else speaks/writes in Shakespearean English?

    Back to watching Kerney Thomas. At least he’s entertaining.

  7. @Nat Turner’s Revenge,

    I’m not sure if you’re posting in reply to my comments, but it appears that you are because most of my posts are laced with scriptures. If you are in fact referring to me, prepare yourself for a swift beat down.

    First and foremost, brother Nat Turner would take offense that such a wimp like you using his name for blogging purposes. Certainly, YOU ARE NOT NAT TURNER! Nat Turner was a deeply religious man who read the Bible constantly. Usually, slaves were not permitted to read, write and definitely told not to read the scriptures. However, certain slave were given permission to do so and even sent to school. Nat Turner was one of these lucky slaves to have receive a little education. To show you how much he hated Edomites (white people), here is one of his quotes: “the Spirit instantly appeared to me and said the Serpent was loosened, and Christ had laid down the yoke he had borne for the sins of men, and that I should take it on and fight against the Serpent” (white people/Edomites).

    Furthermore, as far as white people white-washing the Bible, that’s quite true. It has been tweaked a little here and there to tell a story other than Black folks. Hell, … this is also in the Bible, this why certain books (book of Jasher and the Apocrypha) were removed from the original Bible to hide the true identity of Yahawa’s (God’s) people, primarily the glorious history of Black people. The Bible is not only a book of scriptures, it’s also a book of laws, commandments and history as well.

    Why in the hell would Edomites (white people) write a book (the Bible) that tells of their eventual destruction? Why would white people revise a book that prophesize that THEY (Edomites) would eventually go into captivity for what they have done to God’s chosen people, the Israelites (black folks)? Why would the slave traders made certain that only a specific people was placed on the slave because they didn’t select any black person who happen to be in the area? Why did the vast majority of the slaves have Hebraic names? Could it be that THEY were attempting to erase the history, identity and family lines that were adorned by kings and queens of the slaves?

    Here are some scriptures for you.

    They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. (Psalm 83:4)

    He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. (Revelation 13:10)

    And as far as you Shakespearean English, Black people ruled Europe for almost 800 years from 711 AD until 1492. Europe was ruled by the Black Moors, who were Israelites that converted to Islam. So, if anything, Shakespeare was speaking the norm because he was also Black. You should know by now that most of us black folks are PROPER when speaking. Ssshhh, … white folks are always trying to copy black folks, much like Edomite/Whites still do today. Why? Because Black folks always set the trend. I’ll stop here because I don’t want to either LOSE or CONFUSE YOU!

    In any event, I highly encourage you to continue watching Kerney Thomas, (whoever the hell that is) because you’re certainly still in the pee-wee league when it comes to metaphysics (thinking)!

    Ok, … now lets return to Kim Davis!
