‘God’ just called Kim Davis an ‘asshole’ for refusing to marry gays
Anti-gay Kentucky clerk Kim Davis has, in the name of God, refused to stop discriminating against gays, and been put in jail for it – but God has something to say about that.
Found guilty of contempt of court, Kim Davis was remanded in custody by federal marshals last week.
The Rowan County clerk has continually ignored court orders instructing her to stop discriminating against gay couples.
She approached the US Supreme Court, asking for an order allowing her to continue turning away gay couples – the court declined.
In case you missed it, the Twitter account ‘@nexttoKimDavis’ has been live tweeting observations throughout the stubbornly homophobic clerk’s ordeal.
According to ‘God’, the wildly popular Facebook page, Davis has repented her homophobic ways.
An article on God’s website reads: “‘INSOLENT MORTAL!’ boomed Almighty God. ‘Stop what you are doing! I love gay marriage, why else would I make it legal? And how dare you use My Name to justify your bigotry? Seriously…you’re an asshole.'”
It goes on: “‘I was sure my God was a bigot like me,’ said a groggy Davis. ‘But apparently, God loves gays and believes in love and equality. He also thinks I’m an asshole. Hopefully if I change my ways and marry a lot of gay couples, God will love me again. Also if I don’t get out of here soon I’m pretty sure I’m gonna get shanked.’
“Reached for comment, God emphasized that Davis was not jailed ‘for being Christian’ but for not doing her job and acting like a stupid asshole.”
If only it were true…
Davis ignored several court orders instructing her to stop discriminating and to issue marriage licences to same-sex couples.
She claimed her religious beliefs prevent her from doing so, and her lawyers have filed appeals in an attempt to free her from jail.
