Kim Davis Jailed For Contempt

Kim Davis, the county clerk who's refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples was ordered to go to jail for contempt by a federal judge:

A federal judge here on Thursday ordered a defiant county clerk jailed for contempt of court because of her refusal to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, despite a Supreme Court ruling against her.

The clerk, Kim Davis of Rowan County, was sent to jail after a hearing before Judge David L. Bunning of Federal District Court. The contempt finding was another legal defeat for Ms. Davis, argues that she should not be forced to issue licenses that conflict with her religious beliefs.

“The court cannot condone the willful disobedience of its lawfully issued order,” said Judge Bunning, who was appointed by President George W. Bush. “If you give people the opportunity to choose which orders they follow, that’s what potentially causes problems.”

Grifters gotta grift and anyone with a brain could see this coming a mile away. I'm sure she knows all about the anti-gay bakery that raised a ton of money off of their homophobia and I imagine she sees a big payday coming for herself to play the persecuted evangelical card.

I'm laughing at all these law and order conservatives who now are sticking up for Davis, who is breaking the law and should be put into the hoosegow. She's not being asked to perform a gay wedding, but when there is dollar signs attached to the Christian persecution meme - then you get Kim Davis.
