Kim Davis vs. the Real Lawbreakers

So Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who doesn’t want to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples is now in jail, put there by a federal judge who previously forced high school students into diversity training to try to convince them that opposing homosexuality is wrong. This is all part and parcel of how our world has turned upside down. Davis, a Christian who simply doesn’t want her name on the licenses as the government official authorizing same-sex marriages, is… Read more »
