Kim Davis’ clerk issues marriage license to lesbians while Christians shout they are going to Hell. Anti Gay Marriage Protester Shouts at Lesbian Couple While Kim Davis Hides in Her Office

[[UPDATE #1]] Monday, September 14, 2015, 8:20 AM

Kin Davis returns to work, pledges not to interfere but casts dispersions on the “validity” of licenses issued by her deputies.

From the Associated Press:
Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis read from a hand-written statement Monday morning, her first day back in the office after a stint in jail for five days for defying a federal judge. She choked up as she was speaking, saying she was torn between obeying her G-d and following the judge’s orders. Davis says she is not going to interfere with her deputies issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, but she says she is not authorizing them and questions whether they are valid.

Fortunately, there is at least deputy who understands what #DoYourJob means:

That rainbow-colored house which stands across the street the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas, is the brain child of the non-profit, Planting Peace. They have extended their genius to now include Morehead, KY and Kim Davis.

As Planting Peace tells it:

Following the June 26th Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality, Rowan County clerk Kim Davis refused to issue same-sex marriage licenses in her home state, citing that doing so compromised her religious beliefs. That day, she became the poster child for the anti-gay movement.

As has been painstakingly observed time and time again, the anti-LGBTQ movement is comprised of a substantial number of zealots who unfailingly refer to their rigid interpretation of religious text to narrowly define “traditional” institutions and values. They pick and choose what they wish to convey as immoral and unacceptable, while seemingly sweeping lines of scripture just a few letters away completely under the rug.

In response, Planting Peace has constructed a message for Kim Davis and the anti-LGBTQ movement. The intent of the billboard is to expose this narrow interpretation by Davis and others that they use to defend their discrimination against the LGBTQ community. It is important and relevant to call this out, because these messages and actions are not simply about a political or religious debate. There are LGBTQ youth across the world who are taking their lives at an alarming rate because of these messages from society that make them feel broken or less than. We have to meet hate with love…intolerance with compassion.
