Kentucky clerk could head back to court over licenses
From a story located at:
Kim Davis is just a small part of this story. She's not very important as an individual because one can always find people behaving irrationally when it comes to religion. In America, she is free to believe anything she wants and I for one would be the first to defend her right to do so.
The real discourse and the most frightening part of this story is the number of people believing in the notion that religious belief is more important than our laws and our government. When millions of American citizens advocate superiority of religious belief over our Constitution, our way of life will soon falter.
The destruction of our government is very possible because so many Americans take for granted the Separation of Church and State. It is assumed by the majority of Americans our nation will never allow a form of government, which defers not to civil development of law, but to an interpretation of the will of a God as set out in religious scripture and authorities.
Taking for granted a theocracy could never occur on American shores is a belief which could easily take apart our form of government. Religion, no matter its form, can destroy any government in the world. All one has to do is look at the historical record to confirm the truth that religion destroys societies and governments.
America is not immune and governments around the world, in many parts of our planet, at various times in history, people were surprised to find religious belief not to their liking, dominating their lives and dictating how they would live. There has never been a successful religious government in the history of humankind but this failure has not stopped religious entities from trying repeatedly.
It’s one thing when individuals like Kim Davis exercises her right to believe any religious doctrine she pleases, but quite another when elected officials publicly advocate disobeying our Constitution and Federal Courts rulings.
Suddenly, Presidential Candidates like Mike Huckabee have crossed over into a political opinion calling for the destruction of our national government. When millions of Americans, led by political leaders, openly call for a theocratic government, the seeds have been planted for a dangerous takeover by people more interested in their narrow beliefs than for a government we have enjoyed for over two centuries.
The real story is a desire by millions of people to destroy our way of life. Kim Davis is a mere pipsqueak in a larger attempt to overthrow our government in the name of religion. Don’t be surprised by people like Kim Davis and Mike Huckabee.
Their kind has been around since the dawn of time. They are always dangerous and they are always wrong but they never stop trying to boss people around in the name of their religion.
