It’s probably been a while since you’ve heard the name Kim Davis, but thanks in large part to a rather vindictive homosexual man, you’re about to get a reminder of who she is and the fight she’s had since 2014.
Davis is a county clerk in Kentucky who made the national news not long after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex marriage. She caught the spotlight for refusing to issue licenses to homosexual couples, which stating that it was against her religious views as a Christian.
Her bold stand for the faith landed her in jail for a bit and raised the question as to whether or not people with religious convictions have the right to not comply with this ruling if they served the state in some capacity.
The situation also had a lot to do with states’ rights, as same-sex marriage was illegal in Kentucky. The Tenth Amendment of the Constitution says that any area not specifically outlined in the document itself is to be decided by the individual states, and marriage falls into that category.
Since 70 percent of Kentucky voted against same-sex marriage and the state passed a law forbidding it, that should be the law of the land. Period. So in reality, Davis was actually upholding the law, not breaking it. She was doing her job and doing it well.
One of the couples that Davis refused — to the glory of God — to give a marriage license to was David Ernold and David Moore, who are now, “married.”
This whole encounter has inspired, if you want to call it that, Ernold to run against Davis for the seat and attempt to take her job in what really amounts to nothing more than a thirst for revenge and a desire to push forward the homosexual agenda.
TheBlaze has more:
Ernold is an English professor at the University of Pikeville, and also the leader of Morehead Pride, a local gay rights organization.
Mat Staver, Davis’s attorney, dismissed Ernold as unqualified to be a country clerk.
“The clerk’s position is more than a single-issue position, and that’s all David has is one issue,” Staver said to the Associated Press. “Much of what the clerk does has nothing to do with wedding licenses. It’s a broad service to the public.”
It’s far from a one-on-one race for the seat. Ernold will be competing against at least three other Democrats to run against the Republican Davis.
Davis herself has held the office since 2014 and before she had it, her mother occupied the position. Now her son also works in the office, so this seems to be a real family affair.
This, apparently, puts Ernold in a sour mood as he told the press, “The county clerk’s office has been in the hands of the same family for almost 35 years. I think there’s the potential they want to keep it in the family. But everyone should have a fair shot; it should not be something that’s handed down from mother to daughter and from daughter to son.”
Again, this seems like nothing more than a deeply ingrained desire to seek revenge and punish Davis for her beliefs and for not accepting the homosexual lifestyle as normative, something we know is an end goal for many in the LGBTQ community.
Davis was simply standing up for what she believed was right, and according to the Bible, she absolutely was spot on. Romans 1:26-28 clearly teaches that homosexual practice is shameful error and goes against the natural created order established by God.
I Corinthians 6:9-11 also says that the sexually immoral, adulterers, and homosexuals will not inherit the kingdom of God. You know why? Because such acts violate the law of God and without the gospel, those who break God’s law are condemned.
Notice how it isn’t just homosexuals, but all sexual immorality? You don’t get a free pass just for being straight. That’s because all sexual sin is an egregious offense to a holy, righteous God.
If we don’t stick up for the traditional family unit, and the homosexual agenda continues to spread, society collapses. After all, freedom is only fit for a moral people, and the only objective moral standard for humanity is set down in the Bible.
