Religious Freedom Prevails?

Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk locked up for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, was released from jail on Tuesday — as her case also drew the personal attention of two presidential candidates.

Davis was greeted by a crowd of singing and cheering supporters as she exited the jail. They sang “Amazing Grace” and “God Bless America,” as her attorney vowed Davis would be back to work “this week.”

The order for her release came from U.S. District Judge David Bunning, the same judge who initially jailed the Rowan County clerk last Thursday on a contempt of court charge. But Bunning lifted that order Tuesday. He said the court is “satisfied” that since last week, the clerk’s office has been issuing marriage licenses “to all legally eligible couples” — those licenses have been handled by Davis’ deputy clerks.

    The only bad thing to come out of this is that Huckabee tried to make it a political platform, and that shows that Huckabee is just another politician! Semper Fi.

    Did I miss something? Did the State of Kentucky change their law regarding marriage being between 1 man and 1 woman???? NO? I didn’t think so , so “to all legally eligible couples” from the overreaching Federal Judge apparently includes those NOT ELIGIBLE by KENTUCKY law (no such thing a Supreme Court issued “law of the land”).

    If you don’t do your job, you get fired, it’s a simple concept. Screw your beliefs, I believe in not paying you if you don’t do what you were hired to do.

    Shouldn’t the name of a justice, having determined the legality of homosexual marriage, appear on all those licenses? It is, apparently, something the iotic legality of which they seem to take seriously. Having assumed the risk of doing so, they should accept the responsibility for it, if only, nominally.

      What ALL of you forget just because some CROOKED Judge or Lawyer makes a law doesn’t make it right, just like killing a baby 1 minute before it is born or right after conception, it is still murder, and it’s all because people don’t want to face ANY responsibility for ANY of their actions so they LET The CORRUPT government do their dirty work. And just because some CROOKED PAID OFF Judges make a law it’s supposed to just FINE, WRONG! Then you wonder why America is headed to Hell in a hand basket. Understand this, NO MORALS OR VALUES = Chaos and Mayhem so get ready IT WILL GET WORSE! Semper Fi.

    Get rid of Bunning. This is the 2nd time that he’s tried to cram his anti-Christian, pro gay viewpoint down peoples’ throats. Last time was in a high school. He’s a pig. oink, oink.

      He should absolutely be removed from office. He is an embarrassment to the judicial system. I can not believe how low the entire judiciary has sunk over the past 50 years. It use to be that judges making bad decisions was the unusual now a good decisions is the rarity. The judiciary has embraced PC over the law. The laws are ignored and they thing they can make laws from the bench.
