I don't support gay marrage
This may surprise people, but yes in fact i do. Here in the UK if you don't want to wed to gay people it's fine someone else will. As a gay person myself the thought of forcing someone to marry me and my fiance is ridiculous, i wouldn't want someone doing it if they didn't want to. Also prison for this is ridiculous, although she should have given the choice to her colleagues. Taking that freedom away from them was simply selfish and laughably ridiculous because, well... she ended up in prison because of it.
No, i'm not a homophobe or anything of the sort, but this government needs to hurry and put a bill on the table concerning how people can or cannot deny gays business.
Of course I do. She's being persecuted for her faith.
Religion made the law.
I find it admirable for those who are willing to go to jail for breaking a law they find unjust (it was a common practice in the civil rights movement), but saying that you did it for religious purposes is not a viable excuse when it comes to refusing to do your job as a governmental worker. If you want to stand by your beliefs and stay in jail, good for you. But don't say receiving punishment for breaking the law is unjust. You deserved it.
she's a gangly piece of sH1t
I don't support her, She lost her fight against gay marriage she should deal with it or quit her job.
She broke the law, violated her oath as an elected official. She deserves jail time for her actions.
Imagine how butthurt conservatives would get if Kim Davis cited her religion to deny giving a gun permit to someone....
Kim Davis is not being "persecuted for her faith". In fact, anyone who says that makes me want to do something unmentionable. Davis broke the law. She is an elected government official, so she has to do her job or go to jail. If she doesn't like her job, then she is free to resign. She broke the law. End of story. Religious freedom ends when it violates someone else's rights.
A lot of supporters think that she is being persecuted for her faith, but she is not. She could have walked away from her FEDERAL job if she wanted to. In a job that she was in, there are laws. Breaking those laws are... well breaking laws. People who break the laws get jail time. She should have quit or followed the law. No one is above the law, including her.
If she is unable do do her job because of her beliefs, she should resign.
Kim Davis is not protecting "religious freedom" she is refusing to do her own job and is trying to suppress the rights of gay people.
I don't support her actions, but I don't believe that she should have gotten jail time either, she was refusing to do her job, so I think that she should have been fired, just like any other employee, in the US would.
