It is not an uncommon thing to see people online react with anger and vitriol on the net but the current anger on the net over the Kim Davis case seemingly doesn’t make sense.
For those of you who don’t know Kim Davis is the Kentucky Clerk, an elected official, who has steadfastly refused to issue marriage licences defying the Supreme & federal courts unless her name is removed from them.
The liberal left was up in arms at the sight of this single County clerk in the nation, a Democrat no less, standing up when every single other clerk had folded. The media has been on full alert, the editorial pages have been merciless as have pols on the left.
On Thursday the judge in the case gave her one last chance to fold her card, she declined saying it was a heaven or hell issue to her. So the judge had her jailed, meanwhile four of her five deputies agreed to issue the licences to gay couples as he commanded and on Friday began doing so.
So the license are being issues and the person who blocked them is in jail for not doing so.
One would think the left and their allies would be absolutely thrilled, not only did they get what they wanted but the perfidious woman who stopped them is even now suffering the wrath of the federal government as an example to others:
The court assumed, not unreasonably, that sympathizers would shower her with cash to cover the fine, which means there’d be no real pressure on her to comply with the order to begin issuing licenses. The only way to pressure her was jail.
In fact Kim Davis has become an example to others but not in the way the judge had intended, but in the way the left has feared. In fact her actions sound just so familiar…
And I have not rebelled, have not turned back. I gave my back to those who beat me, my cheeks to those who plucked my beard; My face I did not shield from buffets and spitting. The Lord GOD is my help, therefore I am not disgraced; I have set my face like flint, knowing that I shall not be put to shame. He is near who upholds my right; if anyone wishes to oppose me, let us appear together. Who disputes my right? Let him confront me.
Kim Davis has gone to jail without fear, without complaint. She did not scream defiant curses, she did not call for violence in her name. Her only worry was disobedience to the Lord.
She has set an example to that has put us who have given in to sin or temptation to shame and in doing so has reminded every Christian in the nation of their duty, not to defy the state per say, but to defy the temptation to take the easy route of sin vs the hard route of virtue.
And that is why the vitriol online has grown exponentially even has the left has seemingly gotten what they want, because in fact they have not.
It wasn’t the licenses for gay couples to wed that they wanted, it was her submission to the religion of liberalism on the altar of gay marriage in fear and terror, it was the willingness to toss away Christ for the comfort of her home. It was her declaration that resistance to the new order is futile.
The supporters of Gay Marriage have likened their movement to the civil rights movement, yet it’s Kim Davis, their opponent that has gone to jail for doing what many Black Pastors were unwilling to do in 2012, brave public & scorn for Christ.
No wonder the left is so angry.
Final thought, I was chatting with a person named @raydocmel on twitter who was decrying theocracy and pointed to Kim Davis as an example of it. Thinking on the subject he is right, We now live in a liberal theocracy with Gay Marriage as the primary sacrament and if one dares opposes it in the slightest way they shall lose their job, or their business, or even their freedom. After all nothing produce more rage in a theocrat than heresy.
Yes we are in a modern theocracy and I’d like to give full credit to @raydocmel for making me realize it.
