Westboro Baptist Church tells ‘fake Christian’ Kim Davis to issue marriage licenses for same-sex couples

Published

on

The hyper-conservative Westboro Baptist Church called on Rowan County, Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis to follow the Supreme Court’s mandate on same-sex marriage — but not out of any sudden support for LGBT Americans, the Friendly Atheist reported.

“The Supreme Court, in the providence of God, and for the punishment of this nation, has declared that same-sex marriage IS the law of Doomed USA. So DO IT!!” the group said in a statement on Thursday. “You asked for it, you begged for it by your disobedience and refusal to receive correction or instruction, so take it and like it!”

The church has described Davis as a “fake Christian” for being married four times, including twice with the same man, and blamed her for the high court’s decision to strike down bans on marriage equality.

“Kim claims that she has lived in proud sin for many years, divorcing and remarrying, not one time or two times, in fact you need a score card to keep track,” the statement read. “Her lawyers, being smooth talking fellows say that all that was before her call to salvation two years ago when her current mother-in-law died. Nice, tidy, clever, but no cigar!”

In response, the church revisited its threat from last month to protest outside Davis’ offices on Monday, while also arguing that she should be “apologizing to the f*gs” for enabling them to get married.

Davis became a favorite among other Christian conservatives for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, citing her religious objections. The issue briefly landed her in jail on contempt charges. After her release, she made changes to the county’s license forms, which have sparked a separate court battle over whether they are still valid in Kentucky.

Published

on

What happens if President Donald Trump not only survives impeachment, but goes on to win a second term? It's a prospect that chills Democrats to the bone — and for good reason.

On Monday, Politico mapped out a detailed, hypothetical scenario in which Trump wins re-election — similar to their 2016 scenario of what would happen if Trump was elected in the first place — and some of the things that people could expect in the coming years. The result would be, as former Nixon White House Counsel John Dean put it, "an era of authoritarianism."

GOP lawmakers in revolt against Trump and are avoiding using White House ‘toxic talking points’: WSJ

Published

on

Adding to Donald Trump's impeachment worries are reports that Republicans are putting distance between themselves and the embattled president.

According to the Wall Street Journal, support for the president among GOP lawmakers is waning in light of his phone call with the president of Ukraine -- which set in motion the House beginning an impeachment inquiry -- and then his decision to hold next year's G7 conference at one of his golf resorts -- a decision he later abandoned.

According to the Journal, "Mr. Trump’s support within his party will face fresh tests this week, as key witnesses from the State Department and Pentagon are expected to testify in closed hearings before a trio of House committees on the president’s dealings with Ukraine."
