Something happening in Kentucky has no importance for people living in Springfield, Missouri. Or does it? As Christians we should be watching what is happening to Kim Davis even if we do not agree with her actions. In case you do not know who she is, this is the County Clerk in Rowan County, Kentucky that has refused to issue marriage licenses to anyone since the Supreme Court ruled that every state must allow same sex couples to marry even if that state has laws on the books banning it.
Why should we support her stand even if we believe homosexual marriage is alright? She is standing for her beliefs. Mrs. Davis is willing to go to jail for those beliefs. Are you? Jesus told us this would happen, if we followed Him. Have you read those verses in the Bible. Did you think He was joking? Did you think it would never happen in America?
Because of her stand and that of other Christians who have opposed other Supreme Court decisions that overturned laws that had been legitimately voted on and passed by the States or their elected representatives, some of the decay of our country has been slowed. Without the commitment of some to defy laws that violate our freedom of religion and civil rights we would not have the equality that was denied minorities including African Americans and women.
Homosexual activists are cheering because your freedom to choose and Kim’s right to her own beliefs have been subverted. In the United States of America it used to be majority rules. Because groups could not get their way everywhere they have used the Congress, the President and even the Supreme Court to over rule the voice of the people. When this happened in the 1770’s there was a revolt against the government.
The next revolt may come in the 2016 election. If your right to vote and have it mean something is important to you as a Christian and an American you need to fight back. Entrance to abortion clinics have been blocked. Maybe there will be protestors outside the court house in Kentucky that will be arrested for their belief that the County Clerk should not be in jail. An avalanche of e-mails and phone calls from Christians and others that believe that Americans still have the freedom to their religious beliefs should be forthcoming.
YourCongressman and Senator needs to be told how you feel and that if they do not take a stand in defense of this woman and freedom, they will not have your vote. President Obama needs to be told that he needs to step in. He claims to love freedom. He should love everyone’s freedom not just those who contributed to his campaigns. The next fight for freedom is the battle to regain freedom of belief.
