Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis should resign
Democrat Kim Davis, clerk of Rowan County, Kentucky, does not want to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. Fine. Let her resign, because that is her job, the issuance of marriage licenses. She should either follow the law or her religious convictions.
What would Jesus do? Walk away. Render unto the Supreme Court that which is the Supreme Court's.
I admire her belief that marriage is between a man and a woman and God. If she were a bakery or a minister or anyone else in private industry, I could see her refusal. But I do not want the woman at the DMV -- Department of Marriage Validation -- pushing her atheism, Taoism, Christianity or any other religion while on the government clock.
This is not Hobby Lobby. This is its opposite.
The Daily Caller said, "Kentucky Clerk ‘Out Of Options’ In Gay-Marriage Dispute, May Face Stiff Penalties."
So she should resign. She is not above the law. No elected official is.
