Happy Monday, everybody! We had a very nice chat with our master podcaster BURR DEMING on the online radio Sunday Show last night! (See the bottom of this article for a link that will enable you to hear an archive of that show).
49 year old Kentucky Howan County Clerk Kim Davis made headlines recently by refusing to comply with a U.S. District Court judge’s recent ruling banning the barring of same sex couples to marry. Her noncompliance by not issuing marriage licenses for same sex couples landed her 6 days in jail,. The real objection many people had with her action, though, was her insistence that issuing those licenses would have violated her Apostolic Christian beliefs. Ms. Davis herself as been married four separate times, so it has become hard for many to accept that she actually values the institution of marriage as much as she claims to. She has claimed to be inspired by not only Jesus Christ, but also by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luthrt Kimg, Jr. Today, our podcaster extraordinaire, Burr Deming, offers his opinion of her actions and her arguments,
Burr says, “Kim Davis is inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King to take on a moral burden. If she knew who inspired Dr. King, she might take on one more duty…[she] is often accused of hypocrisy, defining the sanctity of marriage by blocking others from marriage, having defiled the institution in her own personal life…”
