Consider the case of the Sabbath observer

I have had orthodox Jews in my employ — some as department heads. The City of New York employs a fair number of orthodox Jews. Again, some as department heads and higher. I mention this because these employees require additional time off. In addition to 12 additional days that they are not permitted to work, the Sabbath begins 18 minutes before sundown on Friday.

Kim Davis files reply brief with convoluted argument

According to Kim Davis' attorneys from Liberty Counsel “Davis should not be held in contempt because she ‘is presently unable to comply with the court’s order’ enjoining her to authorize SSM licenses bearing her name.” They are defending against contempt by arguing that her compliance is factually impossible. They further explain:.

Kim Davis eats the national LGBT news

Kim Davis

Kim Davis, a backwater Kentucky county clerk has become an all consuming national figure as she defies the Supreme Court of the United States. She is still refusing service to gay couples. If she wants martyrdom I suspect that her desires will be fulfilled after a hearing before US District Court Judge David L. Bunning tomorrow. Judges don't like to be disobeyed.

Elaine Donnelly warns of the dangers of allowing 'transgendered' people to serve in the military

Does anyone still listen to Elaine Donnelly? If so, why?

The world headquarters of Elaine Donnelly's Center for Military Readiness occupies about three square feet of space on Ms. Donnelly's kitchen table in Livonia, MI. Founded in 1993 by Donnelly and Phyllis Schlafly. CMR is perhaps best known for its efforts to keep gays from serving openly in the military.

NOM: Give us money because those mean gays are picking on Kim Davis

Brian Brown and his National Organization for Marriage make less sense by the day. This afternoon Brown indulges in an incoherent diatribe titled “Kim Davis is Why We Must Fight.” While it is true that Davis has an ongoing appeal she is currently out of options. She is obligated to issue marriage licenses to all those who qualify. If she is unable, or unwilling, to do her job then she should resign. There is little that NOM or Brown can do to alter things. Brown is all mixed up:
This puts Kim Davis in a terrible spot because it's she, personally, whose name is on a marriage license in Rowan County and whose signature attests that the couple is indeed married. The trouble is that two men cannot be married to each other, nor two women — regardless of what any court states.

One has to to wonder how some of these nitwits become bishops in the first place

Courtesy of a link from National Organization for Marriage, the archbishop of Agana, Guam lectures us about the true meaning of marriage equality. According to Anthony Sablan Apuron, OFM Cap., D.D. (donning a miter draped with tea bags):
These times compel the Church to expose the intentions of those who have deceivingly disguised same-sex unions as an issue of equality and anti-discrimination. It is important to understand that the political pressure to push the agenda for same-sex “marriage” has never been about gay rights; the true intention behind this agenda has always been about the destruction of the family and the imposition of the totalitarian system. The approval of same-sex “marriage” has now thrown open the doors of Guam to implement in our community a very clever and systematic theory, which has as its aim the destruction of marriage and family through the annihilation of any sexual differences among persons. This theory is known as the “Theory of Gender.”

Davis 'Under God's Authority'

Even though the Supreme Court has declined to intervene, no one is forcing Kim Davis to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. However, if she is unable to do so then she has an obligation to resign. Despite appearances, her office is not a family entitlement.

According to the AP she was confronted by one or more couples this morning. She ordered them to leave. The refused until she issued the licenses. Davis, claiming that she was “under God's authority,” said “then you are going to have a long day.”
