The Lawsuits Begin

The American Civil Liberties Union has filed suit against a Kentucky clerk for refusing to give wedding licenses to four couples, two of whom are “gay.”

Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis said her religious beliefs barred her from complying with the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling that requires states to marry homosexuals. And instead of discriminating, she decided to stop issuing licenses altogether – for homosexuals and heterosexuals, Fox News reported.

Kentucky’s highest-ranking officials – Gov. Steve Beshear and Attorney General Jack Conway – warned clerks on Friday, right after the court’s decision made the media waves, to comply or risk criminal charges that could bring up to a year in jail.

What will it take for the Christians of this country to stand up 10 fold to this evil?

That's exactly what I have often wondered.Why is it that the majority of American Christians continue to be silent about what is happening in our once great nation? If we stand together, we can overcome this evil and regain our strength, morality, and our position on this earth.

If you don't want to follow the law, you shouldn't be employed as a County Clerk. Your wages are paid by ALL of the taxpayers - not just the ones you agree with.

Democrats never follow the law

Sounds like the way to go to me. Just tell everyone, "You can't get married in this state." That's all equal, isn't it?
