    Kim Davis - Kentucky's theocratic ruler

    Kentucky Rowan county clerk Kim Davis' refusal to issue marriage licenses to gays in her country continues.

    She is head clerk and has ordered her staff to not give out marriage licenses to gays either.

    To stop from being charged with discrimination, she had her office stop issuing marriage licenses at all

    The Supreme Court refused to hear her final appeal. Today she was to begin issuing licenses.

    Instead, today she declared she recognizes no authority but god.

    Her supporters call her a modern St. Paul, a Christian martyr to morals, despite the fact she hasn't suffered a single thing - typical of people with armchair Christian martyr complexes - and is 4 times married, and has broken her oath to serve the public (when questioned in an interview of her moral failings, she said they were 'irrelevant' to the situation and 'between her and god').

    She has defied court orders and any authority other than her own, telling the gay couples they will suffer for their sins in the afterlife before shutting her door in their faces.

    She is earning $80K a year in an elected position. She cannot be fired, she can only be impeached or resign.

    She has refused to resign. Impeachment proceedings cannot begin until next year when the legislature convenes unless an emergency session is called. ACLU and a civil suit has been filed, and the latest suit wants her fined heavily, but not jailed, since being hauled away in cuffs would add to her 'aura' of persecution.

    So unless an emergency session is called for to impeach her, or the governor takes other action, she is free to continue doing what she's doing. Sitting fat and happy in her own little theocracy.

    Ha ha! In your country, people like her are a thing.

    ...

    Actually, that's not funny at all. It's scary and sad.

    I beg to differ.
    Do human beings have free will? I can't decide.

    Well, now she is disobeying a court order. I would think that would make her in contempt of court which I believe opens her to fines and/or jail time.

    She's no doubt a supporter of the tea Party. You know, those folks who have public jobs and bennies and want smaller gubmint for everyone else.

    Don't worry about her. One day she'll be rich.

    She'll stand firm in her religious beliefs (well, some of them, anyway.)

    Eventually she'll be fined or jailed for dereliction of duty.

    She'll announce that she's being persecuted for her faith.

    Once she launches a GoFundMe campaign, she'll rake in hundreds of thousands of dollars.

    She'll collect speaking fees from churches.

    If she cleans up her hair and teeth, FoxNews just might make her a guest commentator.

    Don't forget about the book deals.
