Two same-sex couples (so far) have been issued marriage licenses in Rowan County, Kentucky, US America, after the martyr for Jesus clerk was thrown in the hoosegow yesterday. Here’s a taste of the welcome they got:
When the couple got inside the office Friday, a man harassed them, saying “More sodomites getting married?”
In a heated exchange, Davis’ supporters yelled, “I’m telling you the truth because I love you,” while opponents yelled back, “Jesus loves everyone.”
Since I was raised Catholic and therefore know nothing of the Bible, I’ll leave it to the real Christians in the audience to find the verse where Jesus said, “I show how much I love you by telling you the truth about how much I hate you”.
The highlight of this whole shitshow, for me at least, was this “you know who else jailed county clerks who failed to do their job?” quote from our martyr’s lawyer:
“Does that mean that if you’re Christian, don’t apply here; if you’re a Jew, you gotta get — what happened in Nazi Germany, what happened there first, they removed the Jews from government public employment, then they stopped patronizing them in their private businesses, then they continued to stigmatize them, then they were the ‘problems,’ then they killed them,” Staver said. “The fact of the matter is, she has a right to this employment and you don’t lose your constitutional liberties just because you are employed by the government.”
If I were philosopher-king, the first first thing I would do is ban all WWII analogies, including all “Munich” and “Chamberlain” references. They’re like songs by Air Supply or “screw in a lightbulb” jokes — everyone has heard enough of them for this lifetime. The second first thing I would do is fire all the “Christians” who won’t do their fucking jobs because they think Jesus is whispering in their ear.
