Kentucky Governor: Kim Davis is an “Inspiration” for Breaking the Law for Jesus

In a promotional video for Christian bigot Kim Davis‘ new book, all about how she refused to grant legal marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Kentucky, Governor Matt Bevin praised her activism, calling her an “inspiration” to children and public servants everywhere.

“Against all the scorn, all the enmity, all the vitriol, all the nastiness, she stood firm,” Bevin said. “I think Kim Davis is without question an inspiration, not only to leaders like myself — people in the public arena and those outside the public arena — but to my children, the children of America. People, even if they disagree with her, have got to respect the fact that here is a woman who was willing to put it all on the line out of conviction for what she believed and knew to be her right as an American citizen. And her faith and her conviction in the fact that that faith was protected by the First Amendment in our Constitution — in our Bill of Rights, specifically — is something that she was willing to put front and center, and if that’s not admirable, if that’s not something we would want all Americans to emulate, I don’t know what is.”

The governor of Kentucky thinks being a human speed bump on the road to civil rights is inspirational.

That’s bad enough, but the same video ends with a reworked version of the famous poem by Martin Niemöller that begins “First they came for the Socialists…” Because Kim Davis is practically fighting the Nazis.

    Getting it backward -s as cheerleading,, tribalist faith-head yahooos do, when projecting THEIR NASTINESS on to critics!

    “I think Kim Davis is without question an inspiration, not only to leaders like myself

    Well not really – but along with this governor she is an inspiration to those who would like to see disciplinary procedures and psychological assessments in place, to remove destructive bigoted,, incompetents from public office, before they cause serious damage!

    — people in the public arena and those outside the public arena — but to my children, the children of America.

    Education on the mind-blocking damaging effects of ignorant dogmatic bigotry, would certainly helpful and inspiring, in the public selecting candidates for office, and in appointment panels’ choices of those paid to administer public services according to the law!

  • The whingeing bigot is writing a book, playing the martyr for her self- inflicted stupid refusal to carry out the contractual requirements of her employment!

    I seem to recall that the NAZIs victimised gays, so as usual there is reversed projection!

    Because Kim Davis is practically fighting JUST LIKE the Nazis.
