Kentucky Clerk Jailed – Here’s the Point Everyone Is Missing
This whole gay marriage thing sure confuses lots of folks.
Seems it’s difficult to separate emotions from logic.
Faith and facts become blurred.
Here’s the thing:
The jailing of Kentucky, Rowan County Clerk, Kim Davis illustrates what makes the United States exceptional.
Our country’s Founders had the wisdom to form a Perfect Union. They gave us a New Nation built upon a foundation of Faith and a deep understanding of the facts of human nature.
And so it begins. Sadly, it seems America has truly forgotten the intent of Thomas Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury (CT) Baptist Convention on the subject of separation of church and state. It was Jefferson’s intent to not have in America a head of state who was also head of church, ala King Henry VIII and the establishment of the Church of England.
Jefferson didn’t want the state to establish religion that would lead to state persecution of religious freedom — the reason why the Pilgrims came to America. That’s why the First Amendment to our US Constitution states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” In America, the citizen has the freedom of religion; the state can’t institute an atmosphere of freedom from religion.
And so I find it rather interesting that in Kentucky, Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis found herself spending last night in jail for her religious belief. And spare me comparisons to segregation. Blacks were granted rights by way of the 13th-15th Amendments, and it was the Democrat party who sought to deny them.
Kim Davis made a stand as a new Christian.
Will fellow Brothers and Sisters join and support her?
