County Clerk for Rowan County, Kentucky – Kim Davis – was led off to jail today after refusing to issue licenses for “gay marriages” in direct violation of the unbreakable, unshakable, universally binding Word of God.
Welcome to America.
Welcome to the New America, where we are now reaping the full, foul fruit of “We the People” as God in practice. (See: Presuppositional Civil Government: Who we view as owning civil government determines how we will pursue civil government.)
In typical Pagan Right fashion, Republican Presidential Wannabe Mike Huckabee responded to news of Davis’ incarceration by tweeting out some very Christian sounding words that, when examined even just a little in light of the Word of God, actually turn out to be more of the same secular American Statism-enabling drivel that’s helped to produce a “land of the free” where obedient Christians are now jailed for being obedient Christians. Here’s the line to which I refer:
Kim Davis in federal custody removes all doubts about the criminalization of Christianity in this country. We must defend #ReligiousLiberty!
While I get and appreciate the first sentence here on one level, let’s just note for clarity’s sake that what is actually being revealed here is the criminality of the American State. By striving to criminalize Christian obedience and conduct civil government apart from submission to the Nature of God as revealed in His Word, the American State has revealed itself to be a criminal enterprise. The American State is the true and now completely out-of-the-closet criminal here.
Secondly, more significantly, and right on cue, Huckabee does the ol’ Pagan Right Winger switcheroo by employing language intended to lure Christians into supporting religious pluralism (which is exactly what The Huckster means by “Religious Liberty”), which just so happens to be something that the God of Christianity despises, clearly condemns, and is even now punishing us for embracing…thanks to the “leadership” of the likes of Mike Huckabee. (See: Note to ‘Merica: There is no “God-given right” to worship false gods. Repent accordingly.)
What we are actually seeing here – as enabled just as much by the Pagan Political Right as it has been by the Pagan Political Left – is the natural deterioration of law and government when severed from explicit subjugation to Christ as Lord. What we are seeing with the arrest of Kim Davis is not an attack on “religious liberty”, but an attack on those who would really, actually dare to stand upon the lordship of Christ in every realm of His creation, including the realm of civil government.
CBS covered today’s milestone (or is that millstone?) event this way:
“God’s moral law conflicts with my job duties,” Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis told U.S. District Judge David Bunning. . .
“Her good faith belief is simply not a viable defense,” Bunning said, noting that allowing an individual’s beliefs to supersede the court’s authority would set a dangerous precedent.
“I myself have genuinely held religious beliefs,” the judge said, but “I took an oath.”
“Mrs. Davis took an oath,” he added. “Oaths mean things.”
Hundreds of people chanted and screamed, “Love won! Love won!” as word reached the dueling crowds outside.
Ah yes…”love wins!”
Get used to hearing that as Christians are jailed (and worse) for standing upon the Word of God in America.

It all comes down to this: Who is God?
Who is God in truth…and therefore who is God in practice?
Who is the ultimate Authority here?
In “Judge” Bunnings’ worldview – a worldview shared by even most professing Christians in America, the ultimate, true God in reality and therefore in practice is clearly The Almighty American State. (See also: Statism 101: State-run “education” makes a State-dependent population.)
This is where “We the People” as God in practice invariably and inevitably leads. (See: Presuppositional Law: Where we begin with law determines where we end.)
In Kim Davis’ worldview, at least as much as we can see of it from her stand, the ultimate, true God in reality and therefore in practice is…God.
Choose this day, America, which you will serve.
“And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the LORD, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”
~ Joshua 24:15 (emphasis added)

Correction, jailed for obeying an imaginary man in the sky over the rule of law
Yesterday I heard on Pas. Michael Hoggard's "The Talk Show Hell Hates" that Kim Davis is a voting Democratic Party voter. If this is so she is also part of the problem and has helped to bring this evil on herself and on America.
And how many voting Republican Party types in magistrate roles have taken the stand that Mrs. Davis has?
The Pagan Political Right and Pagan Political Left are two wings of the same Pagan Dragon.
Just sayin'… 🙂
This is yet another area where the judiciary has stepped on federalism. This is a matter for Kentucky to deal with; the judge should be impeached for contempt of the Constitution. As a nation, we are being judged and punished for contempt of God. "So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him." (Rev. 12:9)…and that serpent has slithered his way into law schools and the federal court system for a hundred years to create the foundation for this attack on God's people. The U.S. is ruled by demonic lawyers that the sheeple have elevated to servants of their god. Adorned in black (choir) robes, "judges" sing praises and offer up sacrifices to the "father of lies." May God have mercy on us.
Love can’t tolerate hate, Mr. theocratical fascist! You may have your religious beliefs, but impose them on the rest of us and you’re getting stomped out!
I have no reason to tolerate fascists.
In the garden, God’s first commandment to man was not to eat anything from the tree of knowledge (the world) or you will die. The “liar in chief” came along and told us we would not die, and we would become like gods because he had our best interests in heart. This liar is still around this day, whether family, society, the media or the government. We have become so conditioned to the standards of the world that we fear man rather than God, which only brings bondage, death and destruction. I pray for the boldness & courage of Kim Davis and may He strengthen me and every one of His true believers every day! You cannot separate God from anything in your life. Are we going to continue to stand by as spectators in God's dominion and are we steadfastly praying for God's will here on earth?
I know this may sound offensive… But personally i think if it was another religion and same thing happend it would have probley been like l…. Your discrimnating my religion ot somthing
If is gors against your belief then you shouldn’t have to do it
This article is more proof of how folks can change truth by means of wording. She was jailed because she had a real paid physical job to do as a state employee and she refused her duties even though the courts rejected her claim. She then placed her religious rights over other’s religious rights and discriminated and violated their civil rights.
Fruitcake, why don't you address this woman's personal life? She has had multiple marriages and divorces. So that's cool with you? She isn't being jailed for her religion, she is being jailed for failing to do the job she is being paid to do. She is in contempt. She doesn't have to marry anyone, she has the right to quit if she doesn't like it…just like she did with her multiple marriages. Quit trying to make it a loss of religious freedom. It's so not about that.
If Ms Davis had been working in a church in an ecclesiastical setting, her stance may well have been permissible. Depending on which denomination since not all agree. But the reality is that she was a county official in a secular setting. The clerks office is not a church so she was not free to act on her beliefs, sincere though they may have been. Had she chosen to act ethically she should have resigned. Instead she made another choice.
The issue is that Ms. Davis was elected to an office in which she has autonomous discretion. Since she is the elected clerk, legally her signature must be affixed to the bottom of the license in order to make it valid. By contrast, county clerks in California, for example, are merely extensions of the state's health services department and subject to the state's authority. Therefore, in California, a deputy clerk or clerk with a conscientious objection can be replaced ad hoc and the individual with the religious exception isn't still officially condoning the homosexual "marriage." Kentucky presently doesn't have a legal provision for such accommodation, which is all she is asking for.
