Kim Davis reported to duty and made a statement stating that she will not authorize gay marriage licenses. She also stated that she would allow her deputies to authorize such documents, yet without Davis’ name.
I originally commented about Davis’ on Facebook. I expressed my displeasure in the way Davis used her religious beliefs to infringe on a couples legal right to marry.
Let me say, I am glad Kim Davis has her religious freedom and I am glad she knows she has it. I am glad we live in a country where we are free to practice any religion and have any belief we like without another individual infringing on that right.
This country was founded on the basis of separation between church and state. Kim Davis works for the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Effectively, Davis believes more in the religious doctrine she abides by then the constitution of this fair country. Davis, believes that her religious freedom allows her the right to deny somebody else their right.
I am proud to say that I think Davis can believe in whatever she wants. However, Davis puts her freedom and rights above other citizens’ freedoms and rights. Davis abused her power. Her job made her uncomfortable and she choose to take the comfortable path than her duty to do her job.
Kim Davis, do your job. If you do not like what your job entails then please quit.
