We’ll never know if she had to think long and hard about what she was doing. Surely she read her job description? How she came to the conclusion that this was what she had to do is certainly befuddling.

It’s so true. And so just damn ironic that it’s almost hard not to laugh.
But I just got a news flash that the judge let her out of jail. So the saga will continue until the entire country barfs.
One of the best responses I’ve seen came in this tweet:
No one’s being jailed for practicing her religion. Someone’s being jailed for using the government to force others to practice her religion.
The most perfect of the many analogies I’ve seen on this issue…….
Seriously. Where is the mighty hand of God to SMITE these idiots?
Yes! “Lord God, why have you forsaken us?”
I wonder, did she understand the duties of the position when she ran for office. Does her religion allow her to overthrow the U.S. government and begin her own country in KY?
Isn’t it amazing? All she had to do was resign. But, noooooooo, to quote Steve Martin.
These folks that think that their sanctimonious beliefs trump our laws disgust me.
I may not like how the Supreme Court has been ruling but I still have to live by the decisions being handed down. When someone acts as this woman does, she’s doing nothing for religious freedom except making a mockery of it. It actually makes me angry that she believes it is okay to behave this way.
Me too. That is why we have laws and government!
That’s the answer! Only give guns to gays and lesbians! Yes!
There’d probably be fewer murders.
I love Facebook God. The manufactured outrage of those who should know better (and probably do) is incredible. They are betting on the lack of critical thinking skills of the masses, a bet that has become increasingly easy to win, unfortunately.
Yes, it’s true — people are just shutting down their brain cells left and right. There must be something akin to spell check for heart and soul that has gone haywire.
But didn’t Jesus say that if one slapeth thou on the right cheek, thou shall grab the AR-15 and exercise your 2nd commandment right?
Can’t find a like button for comments, so, LIKE.

I wonder why I don’t have a “like” comment button. I may have to actually look at my blog setup.
Found it. 🙂
*&%$#, I give up. Where??
I only see it in the bubbles — on my phone and in the icon at the top that shows my comments when I am too lazy to actually open the post.
Hmmm…. I think on Elyse’s blog, you can only Like a comment if you’re responding to it from WP notifications – or maybe it’s just in my phone app?
I need to fix that.
I think I will just say for the record that my blog sucks.
No it doesn’t suck, Elyse. You have a great blog because of its substance and honesty. The like button is a frill, and only useful if one respects the liker. IMO. 🙂
Aww, shucks. Thanks. I am having one of those days.
Jesus was a head of his time and lived in Mississippi, I’m betting. Maybe Alabama
And he drove a truck with a WWID (What Would I Do?) bumper sticker.
You are on a roll.
A perfect example, Elyse!
Down here in the Bible Belt, the current religious kerfuffle is over the county sheriff placing In God We Trust on all his patrol vehicles. A few have objected. Personally, I think these brave souls should demand equal space for Allah, Buddha and None of The Above. 😉
I just read an article (can’t remember where) about a clerk who denied a license for something or other unrelated to a group of atheists. Seriously.
We have become a joke.
That is the only God these days with sense. Sad, but true. Have you noticed how frequently those who say God talks to them, seem to only hear what aligns with their own desires.
I often wonder why when most people “hear voices” we consider them schizophrenic, but if they hear “God” talking, we elect them to high office.
Probably true. How sad that it is.
I know. What a country …
Facebook God is the only God I follow. It’s uncanny: He/She seems to be all-knowing.
He/She is certainly a wise ass. And I mean that in the most reverent way.
That’s a good one. I’ll add (and in no way meaning disrespect to those I’m about to mention), imagine a Muslim was the County Clerk and imposed a religious belief. The same people backing Kim Davis would be livid .. and to be fair, my example is just as wrong as Kim Davis’ behavior.
PS: My current post has a bit of Elysian in it.
I started to read it but had to leave before commenting. I’ll be back! (I should know better than to start your posts when I don’t have time!
Even I, a mere Canadian far away from Kentucky, can laugh at this. But the real question is: would she have granted a gun license to a gay person?
She probably wouldn’t offer water to a thirsty gay person.
She’s in jail now, no? I feel for her. I really do.
Yeah. Me too
I don’t. Unlike everyone else in jail, she can leave jail at any time she wants just by saying “Fine, I’ll do my job”. She can also resign if she can’t in good conscience give marriage licenses to gays and it’s a part of her job.
Was sarcasm, X. This is, after all, Elyse’s blog!
The Home of sarcasm.
That’s what I’m here for…
I’m sorry I did not understand you. After all, you’re Canadian, and Canadians are supposed to be nice to people.
That’s all a rise. They are just hungry polar bears, waiting outside the station to eat us.
For the record X, are you saying that sarcastic people are not nice people??? Remember whose blog this is!
We’re nice to the ones who deserve it.
Let her stay in jail. Throw away the key. Find other bigots, and add them to the pot…
Sorry, I’m just sick to death of folks who claim to be Christians and have no heart, no soul, no empathy. No love. Have they got a clue what the religion is all about? Of course not.
I don’t think we should throw away the key. I think we should keep dangling it in front of her, and keep saying, “Come on, Kim, say the magic words, you know what they are, and you can go free.”
LOL! I love God. He is the funniest person on Facebook.
He is hilarious, which is Appropriate. He gave us humor! 😈
There would be a run on pitchforks and Fox New ratings would hit another high. No coincidence.
And a run on assault weapons.
Oh, you’re just trying to talk sense. Cut it out.
You now, of course, with a post title like that, you’re going to get our attention. Clever girl. I wasn’t sure what I might find over here, but I knew one thing for sure; it was likely I would end up chuckling. In that nauseatingly “oh-this-is-too-true” sort of way, but chuckling, nonetheless.
Thankfully, I can’t remember the name of that show about the duck people, but I can picture them praying about it. God-fearing, gun-toting, homophobic good folks, gathered together in prayer. Good thing I haven’t had breakfast yet. Would hate to barf on my keyboard.
Hope you have a good Monday, and really hope it’s a day off for you. Everyone needs a tiny slice of extra weekend every now and then. So you can clean house and pay the bills and all that other stuff. Or make those big plans to win a bed and breakfast. 🙂
You found me out! Hope you’re having a nice day off — I’ll be working this afternoon, but the morning is mine!
No rest for the weary, but hoping maybe this afternoon I’ll finish up early. I was poking around my private email notifications looking for business stuff, and saw your notification, and couldn’t resist. 🙂
Thanks, 99! It’s nice to see you. Take it easy this afternoon. I had my morning off and will be back to work momentarily. Happy Labor Day to us, no?
