KENTUCKY: Thousands Rally In Support Of Renegade County Clerk Kim Davis And Other Clerks [VIDEO]

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports:

At a rally Saturday behind the Kentucky Capitol, several thousand people sang hymns, prayed, and praised three county clerks who refuse to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. They also heard Republican political candidates, including gubernatorial hopeful Matt Bevin, and legislators criticize Democrats, especially Gov. Steve Beshear and Attorney General Jack Conway, the Democrats’ nominee for governor this fall. Kent Ostrander, executive director of The Family Foundation, said the event was not anti-gay or anti-lesbian. “All living humanity needs God,” he said. The purpose of the rally, said Ostrander, was to support religious liberty and freedom of conscience for Kentucky’s county clerks in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court decision. He said it was likely the nation’s first statewide gathering focusing on such First Amendment rights. Ostrander reminded the crowd that the Kentucky legislature in 2013 passed a law to prohibit government from infringing on any citizen’s religious liberty unless it has a compelling interest. He said the religious liberty of three county clerks — Kim Davis of Rowan County, Kay Schwartz of Whitley County and Casey Davis of Casey County — is under attack because of their religious conviction that they cannot use their names on a license form to authorize a same-sex marriage. Ostrander noted that Beshear has told the clerks to do their jobs or quit. “Governor, please do your job or quit,” Ostrander said to loud applause.

But if you look at her face you’ll see that in addition to showing them her butthole, she sticks her tongue out at them too. She really is a fantastic little creature, the bitch pet of my dreams. She’s truly won my heart **tears**

    We better be organizing to fight this idea that discrimination is a “religious belief.” You can’t let the other side frame the issue like they did for decades with our right to marry.

        macaroni salad, bacon salad, fried okra salad, tuna salad, potato salad, and poutine.

        • JustSayin

          Leave Bacon salad out of this!

        • Oscarlating Wildely

          Actually, overall tuna salad, assuming there is only tuna and not pasta, can be quite good for you. The level of Omegas and proteins is quite high, especially the latter.

          Now, the rest of it: I’m seeing carbs and lard on a plate.

          (brought to you by your friendly neighborhood pescatarians, which my mother still thinks is somehow related to Episcopal or C of E.)

          • MDB

            I’ll admit it. I do enjoy a fresh tuna salad. Must be a side effect from the port wine we use for communion.

            You gotta be kidding me, I mean seriously.
            Gravy on fried cheese curds?

          • bkmn

            It is a Canadian thing, especially around Quebec. The best poutine I ever had was in Minneapolis and the gravy was a curried pork gravy and it was incredible. It is not something you can eat every day though unless you want to look like Mama June.

          • Nexus1

            I’ve heard that Michigan has some great poutine too. Apparently there are a lot of mixed Canadian and American families there since the state borders Toronto.

          • Nexus1

            The cheese curds aren’t fried. Have a look at this recipe for Poutine. I don’t think it’s my cup of tea either, but it doesn’t look terrible.

          Hopefully they’ll stuff their pieholes so tight that they’ll choke.

          I’m done playing nice with these cousinfucker shitstains. These people are perfect examples of so many wrongs.

          “Do as I say, not as I do.”

          My response:

          “Fuck you motherfuckers! I’ll do what I please! I’m not hurting anything but your delicate sensibilities. So piss off, you inbred wastes of oxygen! If I wanted to hear from an asshole I would’ve farted. Now get out of my face before I’m forced to call Animal Control.”

          • Cuberly

            They’re not worth the adrenaline. But It’s understandable to be pissed.

            I try and save my ire for the GOP/TP. They played footsie with the crazy, giving them increasing power over the past 30+ years. Their demands and attraction to crazy is getting worse and worse. I hope it isn’t sustainable and it collapses, and the GOP starts anew at some point. But for now, it’s going to take a lot of work.

          • Christopher

            And before anyone says that “We need to be better than them.” I’ll offer a little bit of personal history:

            I’ve been laughed at, teased, harassed, spat upon, discriminated against, molested as a child, ostracized from family, raped, and brutally beaten. All of it because I was born somewhat different from them. I’ve attempted suicide several times and I’m still here!

            Those people should be kissing my lily white ass that I haven’t gone on a killing spree.

            Many, if not most of us, have experienced at least one thing on my list more than once in life. I may not be the most well adjusted person in this world, but I’m a damn site better person than they could ever hope to be.

            And it may seem trivial, but this speech keeps me going even in the darkest of times.

            You are stronger than those Christ eaters could ever hope to be, and a better person,too. Anything happen to your rapist?

            And btw, great clip of Al Bundy. I always thought his character was much stronger than even the writers intended.

          • Christopher

            Thanks Todd! Aside from a bout of unemployment, I do alright. 😉

            As for the rapist, this happened in Denver in the mid 90’s. As far as I know nothing was ever done. The cops couldn’t seem less interested. The best they could offer was “The fag probably liked it.” I kid you not. I didn’t hear him say that, but one of my friends at the time overheard him talking to another officer. TBH I don’t really care anymore. I’ve got better things to think about. I did what I was supposed to do and reported it to the police, but when it appears like Law Enforcement doesn’t give a shit, pursuing the matter seemed like it was more trouble than it was worth. I had a life to live.

            Ed O’neil was phenomenal as Al. He struck a chord with the audience that made them feel like “Hey, I know that guy!” or “I am that guy.” He was/is an American everyman and the strength of character he had didn’t all come from the writers.

    Uhm, so what’s their sincerely held religious belief for not distributing marriage licenses to mixed-sex couples? I don’t think avoiding an even more obvious contempt of court charge counts.

  • JustSayin

    Two comments.

    First we Definitely need to keep control of the whitehouse in 2016. The next president will appoint up to four new supreme court justices.

    Second I will bet you now that this case hits the supreme court , possibly by July 2016. If the circuit court rules in the next 60 days , either way, it will be filed with scotus. Neither side will ask for an enbanc review.

    They are doggedly trying to pit the first amendment against the 14th

    If they can get this on the scotus docket for July 2016 it is red meat for the far right to come.out and vote. Sadly it may not be enough to drag put liberals.

    • Claude Jacques Bonhomme

      I have a feeling that if the 6th rules our way, the Supremes won’t grant cert.

      • JustSayin

        Possible but there is a chance and this is a first amendment issue, one that in the recent ruling they predicted. It is hard to dodge.

        And if the sixth does deny them and cert is not given it is more red meat for the election.

        Either way this affects November 2016.

        • billbear1961

          They cannot allow people who meet all the LEGAL requirements for something to be turned away because an official decides to impose his or her own personal religious test on them.

          It would be a violation of the Establishment Clause, and it would lead to CHAOS.

          Anyone could become the target of any petty little religious hypocrite playing GOD.

          • JustSayin

            Bill, while i hope they don’t , they can and might. Kennedy on first amendment religion has not always been our friend.

            They might create a balancing test and that could fuck us over. Big time.

          • billbear1961

            “You have a right to marry, but anyone can use religion as an excuse to violate that right and refuse you a license. I won’t allow anyone ELSE’S fundamental civil rights to be violated in this way–the rights of the divorced, for example–but, you gays? Sorry, you’re out of luck! It is so ordered.”–Justice Kennedy

            Anything is possible, but I don’t think it likely this particular judge will do anything so INFAMOUS.

      • tristram

        No cert? Which two of Roberts, Thomas, Scalia, Alito and Kennedy vote against cert? I think there’s better odds of 6-3 for than 6-3 against.

    • tristram

      What you say about keeping the WH is terribly true. If, gawdhelpus, Hillary collapes, there could easily be a wave election in 2016 that increases the GOP senate majority to a point where we could end up within 4 years with a SCOTUS consisting of Sotomayor, Kagan, Roberts, Thomas, Alito and Scalito, Scalito, Scalito and Scalito. Even if Breyer and Kennedy were to hold on, they’d be in the minority.

      And the danger with the religious freedom issue is that we have lost control of the narrative. Not so much with respect to the clerks, but the bakers, photogs, etc. Get out of the MSNBC/JMG bubble and you’ll find that a lot of gay-friendly, non-fundamentalist, swing-voter type people are buying the tale that the whole GOP line-up is pushing about gays/liberals trampling ‘religious liberty.’

      Of course, on the election question, if what happened on Wall Street Friday turns out to be not a dip but the start of a dive, we are in for desperate times in many respects.

  • JT
    • Veylon

      The Amish have been doing that for centuries. It’s a tough, self-sacrificial road. These guys want their purity on the cheap.

      • billbear1961

        These hateful thugs are anything but pure, unless you mean pure FILTH.

        Evidence of their impurity, of their abusive behaviour towards others, even towards their nearest and dearest–one vice and crime and scandal after another–is in the news all the time.

        Their sermons mask–or attempt to mask–the most appalling corruption, corruption and crimes of every nature known to man.

        It is so of almost all holier-than-thou fanatics.

        They are hypocrisy and all the vices personified.

        LOOK at them.

        They LOOK like what they are!

        • Veylon

          Yeah, pretty much. What they really want is the benefits of purity. They all want to be pointed at as a saintly figure who is a pillar of a community, a hard-working citizen who is renowned for their clean living, generosity, excellent physique, and upright morals. What they don’t want is the effort that goes into earning such a position. They want it easy, they want it now and they are upset that society has the gall to expect that they must work to be honored and doesn’t credit sitting in a pew listening to a sermon – or giving one – as such.

          • billbear1961

            They don’t practice what they preach. They want their hypocrisy to be venerated for the appearance of “virtue” it FAKES. They are NOT to be questioned. Only THEY know God’s mind–anyone who disagrees with them is an enemy of God because THEY say so.

            The rules they PRETEND to venerate–when it SUITS them–are for them to use to punish the people they hate, while THEY are always excused for any rule THEY break because “Jesus forgives them.”

            How very convenient–you pay lip service to all the holier-than-thou BS; so, don’t worry–even if you get caught doing many things you condemn in others, you’re off the hook! YOU have a free pass, a get-out-of-jail/hell-free card. But those who disagree with you do NOT.

            They select from their primitive “holy” scriptures what they can use against us–ignoring horrors in their Bible that condone crimes like slavery or parents putting unruly children to death or fathers selling their daughters into bondage or rapists being excused if they marry their victims and “compensate” the girls’ fathers–while they ignore the Golden Rule and any teaching–like Christ’s on divorce–that THEY find inconvenient for themselves.

            THEY are God’s chosen for whom the rules are loose guidelines. There is no question of punishments for THEIR transgressions. Not ONE of THEIR rights may be questioned or taken from them, no matter WHAT sin they commit and no matter how many TIMES they commit it!!

            But we–WE–must be punished, stripped of our civil rights and segregated from the community.

            They come into the public square and impose their two-faced rules–their outrageous double standards–ONLY on those they HATE.

            They abuse their neighbour in ways they would label a CRIME if THEY were treated in like manner.

            THIS is the arrogant EVIL we are expected to bow down to, the arrogance of self-righteous moral MONSTERS.

      • JT

        Falwell’s monstrosity of a “university” has been there for years. There’s nothing self-sacrificial about it at all.

        • Veylon

          Another contrast. Amish don’t go to college; they generally quit after eighth grade. They don’t define themselves by a piece of paper to impress the world. The fundies very much do and Falwell’s “university” produces one…for a price.

          Frankly, the students would be better off spiritually and physically if they’d spent those two or three years on a Amish farm. But no, impressing the secular world is more important to them.

      • billbear1961

        I will add that everything about them is CHEAP.

      • Steve Teeter

        The Amish only impose their beliefs on themselves, not on others. There’s the difference.

This asswipe is from the Chalcedon Foundation, listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center and want to make it legal to execute gay people. They’re Hitlerian supporters of genocide.

        Mark Rushdoony took over as president of the Chalcedon Foundation after his father’s death in 2001, and now leads a small army of true believers
        whose fundamentalism is so hard core they make garden-variety
        right-wing evangelicals seem like Unitarians at a Peter, Paul and Mary
        sing-along. Reconstructionists envision a future in which gay men and
        lesbians and adulteresses will be put to death, as demanded, they say,

          Very true. A charming, chatty gentleman running for state senate came to our door a few weeks ago; we chatted for a few minutes and I liked him personally, but googling him after he left, he’s a Republican. He’s come around a second time and sent several mailings as well, whereas the Democratic candidate? Haven’t heard a peep from her. It’s really frustrating. I’ll vote for the Democrat anyway, but she is really being out-canvassed by the Republican. I’m just hoping she wins; if she doesn’t up her game, she just may not.

Mix in a good dose of xenophobia, paranoia, and that oh so powerful fundamentalism (“I can’t be wrong because Jeebus”)…and there you go. They’re like the Borg, from Star Trek…or like your typical flesh-eating zombie.

    “Kent Ostrander, executive director of The Family Foundation, said the event was not anti-gay or anti-lesbian.”

    Really? Then how come the only people they don’t want to get a marriage license are gays and lesbians? And why is the event being organised and supported by antigay hate groups?

  • NO special rights to have a Job and then refuse to do it!!!! It’s an absurd position and what they push for isn’t religious liberty, it’s an absurd policy that would give special rights to a certain religious ideology. The religious right has a huge entitlement complex and it’s good to see that challenged.

    Not sure why there was a Bear in a Speedo but I’m not complaining

    Foo Fighters Rick Roll Westboro Baptist Church

    It actually happened a while ago already. The Internet has leaked out into real life. Now, there are ads for Facebook on seemingly every product, and commercials use hashtags. Before their concert on Friday, The Foo Fighters continued this trend of bringing the Web to real life by ‘Rick Rolling’ the Westboro Baptist Church who were protesting nearby. Naturally, the crowd loved it.

    Have all the rallies you want. It doesn’t change the illegality of what she’s doing. Segregationists held rallies too, legal segregation still died.

    Davis’s case has nothing to do with her freedom of religion, as the court has already stated. It has everything to do with her refusal to do the job she was elected to do. The governor or the courts need to step in to relieve her of her duties and appoint an acting county clerk pending her impeachment, since she is an elected official who refuses to perform her duties and is in clear violation of the law of the land.

  • BudClark

    They can demonstrate until they have to run home to charge their Hoverounds, get a fresh pair of Depends, and have a double gin and Geritol to sustain their outrage.

    It won’t change a thing (except maybe for an uptick in Depends, gin, and Geritol sales).

    Poor, deluded wights! The schools in their state really ARE that bad, aren’t they?

    They haven’t a CLUE how Constitutional law works.

    At this point, two things could have happened, but the deadline for one of them has already passed:

    (1) There COULD have been a re-hearing, but I think the Governor and/or the Legislature would have had to initiate the process. And the deadline for that has passed … 25 days? 28 days? I’m too sleepy to look it up.

    (2) Two-thirds of both Houses of Congress and three-fifths of the States would have to agree to a Constitutional Amendment reversing / overturning Obergefell v. Hodges.

    All this idle chatter about removing marriage from the Supreme Court’s jurisdiction is just that: idle chatter. While it COULD be done, at this point, it has about as much chance of passing as a second Constitutional Convention being called, which terrifies EVERONE.

    With virtually nothing in the Constitution or Federal law to guide them, a second Constitutional Convention COULD throw the whole thing out and start again from scratch. In the meantime, we would have no functioning government for … how long? Ten years? Twenty years? NEVER??

    The 1st and 14th Amendments would go away, for SURE!

    They couldn’t get Amendments banning abortion, or allowing sectarian Christian prayer in public schools, when they had the White House, the Senate, AND the House of Representatives; they’re CERTAINLY not going to get one now about marriage equality with a “no fucks left to give” President Obama in the White House and a bunch of brain-dead ankle-biter candidates for President on the Republican side.

    If they SHOULD elect tRUMP by some cruel twist of fate, the American people richly deserve him.

    And I’ll be moving to Rosarita Beach, Baja California, Mexico. Lovely place! And CHEAP!!

    The owner of the motel where we stay when we go down there built a chapel to the Virgin of Guadalupe (of course!) in memory of his mother. He invited me and my schola to sing for the dedication. We were wined and dined and treated like ROYALTY. The place was so jam-packed that I had two wide-eyed, VERY-WELL-BEHAVED little boys sitting on either side of me on the organ bench. The organ was an old Wurlitzer reed organ that had been in the bar of the motel (chuckle). The organ bench was a board supported by two sawhorses … it was the right height … that was all that mattered.

    The Mass was in Spanish; the sung parts were in Latin. Didn’t make a dime’s worth of difference to anybody. They understood both. We sang a nice little Dubois Mass for three men’s voices; the wheezy old reed organ sounded remarkably like a French harmonium.

    Afterwards, and MANY shots of tequila later, we had a nekkid pool party in the swimming pool of the motel.

    But that’s a story for another time .

  • StraightGrandmother

    I want you to notice something.
    Remember the video of the Florist from out west is it Oregon or Washington, Baronell, remember when she spoke at the Southern Baptists conference?
    Remember Alliance Defending Freedom showed the video of her and she is all humble like, all sweetness and cream, “I have no hate in my heart, I sold these men flowers for many years, they were my good customers, I don’t have hate in my heart, I just feel according to my religion I can’t participate in their wedding so I said no”

    Remember her and that video? I hope you also remember after the video she gave about a one minute speech and at the end she raised up her fist and said very forcefully, “God will not be mocked!” and then after the “God will not be mocked!” she got a standing ovation.

    Now look at this video of Kim Davis, she starts out the same way, all humble like, but then when she starts talking about God, she revs up, watch just after 1 minute, here is where she drops the curtain, she pounds her hand on the podium and shouts out, “He is worthy of PRAISE,” then she catches herself and reverts back to her false humility act. But for one brief moment she couldn’t maintain the false humility facade, and we saw the theocratic militant Kim Davis.

    These people are not the humble, “I love everybody,” Christians they portray themselves to be, get ’em in a room with a bunch of other Christians and they cannot hide their motivations of demanding second class status for sexual minorities in the Public Square. They are never able to completely keep up the facade when they are in front of a live audience. Watch Kim Davis right after the one minute mark.

    Please. Tell me how demanding the right to discriminate JUST AGAINST GAY PEOPLE isn’t “anti-gay” in nature?

    When they ask for the right to discriminate against couples who already have kids but have never been married or couples who have had sex before marriage, then I won’t see this as blatant bigotry.

    I won’t hold my breath.

  • GayEGO

    Oh, they hid behind the state capitol building so they could chant their religious hoopla because it does not belong in our civil governmental legal system. Kent Ostracizer has been brainwashed by his religion and does not understand the difference between religious doctrines and American laws.

  • kaydenpat

    “the Kentucky legislature in 2013 passed a law to prohibit government from infringing on any citizen’s religious liberty unless it has a compelling interest.”

    The compelling interesting being that you don’t get to discriminate against anyone, including gays, because of their sexual orientation when it comes to marriage. So sayeth the Supreme Court. Simple.

    A. 2 Samuel 28: I grieve for you, Jonathan my brother; you were very dear to me.
    Your love for me was wonderful,

    B. I assume that multiply-married Kim Davis would have no problems if Catholic clerks had refused her marriage licenses because Catholic theology rejects remarriage after divorce. Even though many of the fundamentalist cults differentiate between Catholics and “Christians.”

  • NMNative

    We’ve got religious nuts here as well. Belen, a small town, falling into arrears, no real tax base, lot’s of poor and old folks, is going to spend tax dollars to defend a nativity scene on public city property.
    Sheesh, what ever happened to “praying in a closet.” Or even “no graven images.” Perhaps, just maybe, “love thy neighbor” might even come into play if any of these folks actually read the buy bull.

  • TallBearNC

    These clerks have no grounds to claim violation of religious freedom because the Bible does not say that they can not interact with gay people, or do business with gay people. They’re not being asked to do marriages. They are being asked to do their job and that job is to file paperwork. Plus when they took their jobs, they were told they had to follow all laws within the state and federal laws and to put the personal and spiritual beliefs aside. So they have no grounds to stand on

  • Terry

    Just out of curiosity: If I was a member of the Southern Baptist Convention in 1965, would I have had the right to refuse to issue a marriage license to a mixed race couple because it violated my religious beliefs?

  • pamela

    OH MY..I remember when jimmy swaggart (lower case letters for a reason)was arrested for ties with a prostitute and I was raised Pentecostal, so much for that! I NO LONGER PRACTICE ORGANIZED RELIGION! I figured this out really quick when I was just a teenager! I would rather give my money to the humane society. Then when I became a social worker, I realized that a lot of old people would send in money to these televangelists just for prayer.. They are preying on old uneducated people. The people I case managed were on Medicaid, which means they had very low income, and still religious groups prey on them. I had clients who couldn’t even afford food or medicines, but would send money to these people for prayer. I tried to educate them, but you cant fight religion, that is their belief, meanwhile these televangelists have million dollar homes and live the life of luxury! I hate all this in the name of religion.. Christianity is responsible for the destruction of indigenous people all over the planet, because they thought they were right! My spouse is Cherokee, its a dang shame what was done to the native Americans.. They had a religion as well.. You can practice any religion you would like at home or at church, you work for the government Ms. Davis, enough wrong has been done by the Christians. We(and I am sorry to say I live in KY)pay your salary. Its not up to you to judge anyone! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!
