Now I've listened to all of the pundits and even some of the candidates, most of whom have said that she has violated the law and we are a nation of laws (excepting Cruz, Santorum and Huckabee), but they have missed a very important point. America was founded as a godly country and that means that right from the beginning we as a nation recognized that we were made in the image of God. So if we were made in the image of God, it follows that our societal order and our laws would be based on the laws of God. And this leads to the point that when we violate God's law, by substituting those laws made without His moral authority, then a person trying to live in a godly way should not be expected to follow those laws.
Ms. Davis wishes no ill will to anyone. She just stands by the idea that she should be allowed to practice her beliefs in her daily life. There are many other options available to officials to resolve the problem short of what has happened, but they seem determined to make a example of Ms. Davis. It is just an example of what Jesus told His Disciples on that night before His death on the Cross. He warned of persecution, ridicule, scorn and even extreme suffering, something which ultimately happened in death to all of His Disciples but one, John. He explained that those who believed would obey Him and the laws from on high, not those of mortal man when there was a conflict between the two.
I'm not quite sure why so many people think that five justices, mere lawyers, have the authority to overrule the law of God and demand that everyone follow their edicts. Besides, and as attorney Mat Staver of the Liberty Counsel (representing Ms. Davis) said in press conference yesterday, why was it necessary to cart her off in handcuffs when we allow illegals with criminal records to hide in sanctuary cities? The hypocrisy of it all is truly sickening. And I think we all know the reason deep down inside that no one wants to mention: it's because there is an ongoing war of persecution against Christians and most don't want to stand and take a position. It is just as Jesus and later Paul said it would be.
There is also another way to solve the problem without holding this poor woman in jail. Kentucky can change it rules and remove the name of Ms. Davis from the marriage certificate, a suggestion she has made which has been rejected. She is not trying to force anything down anyone else's throat. She just refuses to have her name on the document stating that she issued the license. Is that so hard to understand? I mean, really, we bend over backwards for all types of people in this society yet we can't treat the Christian majority with deserved respect. This isn't justice, it's just plain persecution.
Christians of America, it's time to speak up for Christ if you believe in Him and demand that we be given the respect and the freedom of religion that our Constitution demands. Nothing less will be accepted or else we can expect our treatment to only get worse. It's time for a little tolerance from those who not long ago were demanding tolerance from us, don't you think?
