  • I don't support gay marrage

    Posted by: BIGC
  • 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.

Of course you would say something like that 5853. It's only people like you and other no voters who find it reasonable for others to be punished for the Holy morals they hold dear while yourself and others like you would find it abhorrent for homosexual acts to be banned in public and be considered an offense worth going to jail for.
Haroush says2015-09-04T02:00:36.6341823Z
It is these same people who vote believe in queer/marriage which don't understand the word marriage doesn't pertain to couples of the same sex.
TBR says2015-09-04T02:11:02.7129956Z
Haroush- It does now.
Mister_Man says2015-09-04T02:54:58.6930928Z
I don't support her but I don't think she should have been imprisoned for it. Fire her and get someone who will do their job.
Mister_Man says2015-09-04T02:56:21.9196263Z
I don't know why everyone is losing their sh*t over this, lol.
Varrack says2015-09-04T03:03:58.5033531Z
I wanted to vote yes just to make TBR rage, lol. In all seriousness, I agree with Mister man's remark that she shouldn't be imprisoned for simply not giving out marriage licenses. There are less harsh and more appropriate punishments for actions.
TBR says2015-09-04T03:06:37.6063685Z
They gave her every chance. The judge offered to NOT put her in jail, that's she asked for. As to why not fire her, she cant be. She was elected. She insisted that none of her staff do the licenses. She insisted that she would go to work regardless of being fined, and not issue licenses. Again, to close, she CHOSE to go to jail.

@Haroush The law is the law. Break it and you receive a punishment. No one is above the law.
Renegader says2015-09-04T05:22:51.1569180Z
She obviously should be fired (get over it lady, you lost.) However, I would also advise people to be cautious about the idea that we must uphold a law solely based on the fact that it is a law.

@Reeseroni - Isn't that long established under discrimination laws?
Reeseroni says2015-09-04T20:41:48.1679717Z
@Kreakin, due to religious preference and discrimination, it is not fair that the government force religious people and establishments owned by religious people to go against their religious teaching and support things they see as immoral and unjust. This needs to be addressed individually.
Haroush says2015-09-05T18:17:29.2074390Z
Just because many think marriage pertains to same sex couples as well, doesn't mean you and the majority are right. @ TBR / " The law is the law." I bet you will not be saying that when you see a law being enforced which is unjust in your eyes. @ 5853 Though, then again you remind me of one of those pansy Americans who doesn't care what laws the government creates and enforces. Meaning, they could be changing the constitution constantly and you wouldn't stand up to nobody about it because that is who you are.. Another pathetic passive U.S. citizen.
benhos says2015-09-05T18:22:38.4385678Z
Kim Davis is no better than Osama Bin Laden. She wants religious law to rule over state law.
Haroush says2015-09-05T18:39:25.2415826Z
@Misterman, People care about this issue because some people in this world actually hold many morals, ethics, and values like they are supposed to. It's better to stand for something then be a dead man walking with no soul. People that hold no morals, ethics, and values will be the first one to die off and go to hell when this earth experiences it's next great cataclysm because they lack the brain capacity to understand what it means to be a moral man or woman. Or they do understand, but they are too full of pride to live a Holy life which means living your life not for you, but those around you and our creator. For right now you can laugh things off, but people like me will be the ones saying "Told you so." Which is why many people couldn't live in a world full of destruction.. No faith, means no G-d, which means you going insane and killing yourself or others because of your own selfish desires. My last sentence leads me to my last point by saying homosexuality is nothing more than a lustful desire just as is gay marriage because marriage never ever had anything to do with gays in the first place except for the purpose of destroying the church and devaluing morals, ethics, and values.
Haroush says2015-09-05T18:54:56.0082478Z
@Benhos, If Kim Davis is no better than Osama Bin Laden then I ought to kill you then, right?
TBR says2015-09-06T00:05:12.1652082Z
@Haroush - All these morals and ethics you speak of, those fighting for rights speak of too. Stop being so myopic. You don't hold license to the "one true American" status.
Haroush says2015-09-06T00:35:20.0844302Z
@TBR, Oh, so now we need a license to be a "True American"? What a typical liberal. Go ahead and tax us for the oxygen we breathe why don't you? I know taxing our oxygen has to be in your GRREN plan, right? Or will you be like a typical liberal, lie about your intentions and say you don't want to tax people for the oxygen they breathe, then go ahead with the taxation of breathing oxygen. Sounds about right.
TBR says2015-09-06T00:45:05.8125822Z
Try to talk to Haroush like an adult is like... Well, like talking to Haroush. What I was saying is YOU don't own the title, no one does. LGBT has been fighting for the rights you take for granted. They are as patriotic as anyone. They have morals and ethics. They just happen to conflict with YOUR morals and ethics. Get over it.
Haroush says2015-09-06T01:05:47.6070635Z
The LGBT movement hasn't been fighting for any rights I take for granted. Furthermore, they already had their rights in the first place, they just wanted to take away other peoples rights and be seen as "Holy" which they will never be able to be. Patriotic? Ha, yeah patriotic all right. Let's just disrespect WW2 vets by posting a gay version of Iwo Jima. That is patriotic all right. It is patriotic to slander G-d when you call for him when you are in the trenches.. Oh, I forgot, you know nothing about that because you have never had near death experiences at that. Never mind near death experiences in the middle of war. As far as them having morals and ethics.. Seriously? What morals and ethics do they have? Tell me.
TBR says2015-09-06T19:32:24.9816399Z
That quality applies to all, not just some small segment of close minded Christians. That they stand for a country that is strong, and committed to the principles that all men are created equal. That justice and equality is for all, not just who you like.
132sque says2015-09-06T21:06:42.9708298Z
@Haroush Seriously man what's with all the hate? All we want is to be able to live peacefully like anyone else without being persecuted forever, which frankly we are. We are as patriotic as the next person. To say we disrespect war vets is utter c**p, to say we are going our way to attack the religious is also lies. Especially as it's the religious who have been attacking us forever. We are no different to you other than we love different people. There are nice gays and bad gays just like there are decent straight and some nasty straight people just like yourself. You've done nothing but go out your way to offend people on here, PLEASE tell me where are YOUR morals and ethics a they seem to be lacking, not mine.

Fat B*tch

Haroush is another hater cloaked in his religion. Always has been and thinks he is righteous...Do not engage him it is a fruitless effort and he will pout like a child.
Huntress says2015-09-07T02:03:54.3958719Z
@ramm5555 Is the school yard name calling necessary? If it were really all about hate, then you hate Christians and they gays, all even. Hate is hate. Your objective moral high ground is an illusion. In reality, the truth is far more complex for most people.
