Editorial: God bless Kim Davis for her faith

Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis believes in Jesus Christ and the Bible and she is willing to stand up for what she believes.

For that, a federal judge has put her in jail.

Davis understands that the Bible teaches – in the Old Testament and New Testament – that marriage is a holy bond between one man and one woman. It is not meant for homosexuals and she has refused to issue a license for two men to get married or for two women to get married.

“God’s moral law conflicts with my job duties,” Davis told U.S. District Judge David Bunning. “You can’t be separated from something that’s in your heart and in your soul.”

Judge Bunning, who was tagged as a “conservative” judge when he was appointed by former President George W. Bush, is instead a liberal activist judge. In 2007, he overturned a partial-birth abortion ban and in 2003 he let a homosexual student group meet on their high school campus.

Homosexuals gleefully rejoiced when Bunning threw Davis into jail. The judge conveniently overlooked the First Amendment, which is supposed to let Americans practice their beliefs without government intervention.

So while Davis goes to jail, a multitude of “conservative Christian” politicians deny their publicly avowed belief in the Bible and accommodate the homosexual takeover of America.

Where is their courage?

Their inaction and accommodation point to the shallowness of their beliefs and their unwillingness to sacrifice at any level to do the right thing.

Kim Davis would rather go to jail than to disobey God’s law. That gives her one more jewel in her crown in Heaven.

God help America when people go to jail for standing up against perversion.
