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.

‘Comparing yourself to terrorists?’ Internet cracks up at Trump saying dead 9-11 hijackers got more justice than him

Published

on

President Donald Trump quoted Fox News host Mark Levin that left many scratching their heads. Levin, who has a show on Sunday evenings, claimed that the terrorists from Sept. 11 got more due process than the president.

The claim was a curious one because, as many on Twitter noted, it's not often that the president of the United States compares himself to a terrorist. Secondly, the 9-11 hijackers all died in the attack, as they were on the planes that crashed into the buildings and into a Pennsylvania field.

Trump is known to quote Levin frequently, though the citations often make the president look worse.

"We also realize that the problems of racial injustice and economic injustice cannot be solved without a radical redistribution of political and economic power."

—Martin Luther King Jr., 1967

This Martin Luther King Jr. Day comes as moderate Democrats, falling in line behind former vice president Joe Biden, are warning that the party risks re-electing Donald Trump if it nominates too radical a candidate for president — by which they mean someone like Senators Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren.

Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe catches Alan Dershowitz in humiliating hypocrisy: ‘He’s not to be trusted’

Published

on

Harvard Constitutional law professor Laurence Tribe called out President Donald Trump's lawyer, Alan Dershowitz, Sunday on Twitter, noting that his opinions seem to evolve depending on who he's defending.

Dershowitz is on a kind of press junket for the president, defending him in various media appearances. The former lawyer to Jeffrey Epstein is handling Trump's defense as it pertains to the abuse of power. Dershowitz thinks that charge has no basis in law. In fact, impeachment trials aren't actually legal proceedings, they're political proceedings, because the Justice Department claimed that Trump can't be indicted under the law while he's president.
