A Federal Judge has arrested Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis and put her in jail for refusing to issue ‘same-sex marriage’ licenses.
The Left, as is to be expected, is praising the Judge’s move.
We have a typical example of this, as reported by Bridget Johnson:
“And every public official in our democracy is subject to the rule of law. No one is above the law. That applies to the president of the United States and that applies to the County Clerk and Rowan County, Kentucky, as well,” [Josh] Earnest said. “And that’s a fundamental principal of our democracy. In terms of how that applies to this particular case? That’s obviously something that a judge will have to decide. And I would not second guess it from here.”
Earnest said he hadn’t spoken with Obama about “this particular matter,” and was “obviously limited in what I can say, given the ongoing court activity.”
“I will just say on principle that the success of the democracy depends on the rule of law, and there is no public official that is above the rule of law,” he continued. “Certainly not the president of the United States, but neither is the Rowan County clerk. That’s a principle that is enshrined in our Constitution and in our democracy, and it’s one that, obviously, the courts are seeking to uphold.”
Some on the Right are saying she deserves this punishment because she has ‘defied the law’.
In two segments of his radio show tonight, Mark Levin demolishes this argument….
Standing with Kim Davis is Republican 2016 presidential primary candidate Senator Ted Cruz who immediately issued the following Statement on Arrest of Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis.
HOUSTON, Texas – U.S. Sen. Cruz, R-Texas, today released the following statement regarding the arrest of Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis:
“Today, judicial lawlessness crossed into judicial tyranny. Today, for the first time ever, the government arrested a Christian woman for living according to her faith. This is wrong. This is not America.
“I stand with Kim Davis. Unequivocally. I stand with every American that the Obama Administration is trying to force to choose between honoring his or her faith or complying with a lawless court opinion.
“In dissent, Chief Justice Roberts rightly observed that the Court’s marriage opinion has nothing to do with the Constitution. Justice Scalia observed that the Court’s opinion was so contrary to law that state and local officials would choose to defy it.
“For every politician — Democrat and Republican — who is tut-tutting that Davis must resign, they are defending a hypocritical standard. Where is the call for the mayor of San Francisco to resign for creating a sanctuary city — resulting in the murder of American citizens by criminal illegal aliens welcomed by his lawlessness?
“Where is the call for President Obama to resign for ignoring and defying our immigration laws, our welfare reform laws, and even his own Obamacare?
“When the mayor of San Francisco and President Obama resign, then we can talk about Kim Davis.
“Those who are persecuting Kim Davis believe that Christians should not serve in public office. That is the consequence of their position. Or, if Christians do serve in public office, they must disregard their religious faith–or be sent to jail.
“Kim Davis should not be in jail. We are a country founded on Judeo-Christian values, founded by those fleeing religious oppression and seeking a land where we could worship God and live according to our faith, without being imprisoned for doing so.
“I call upon every Believer, every Constitutionalist, every lover of liberty to stand with Kim Davis. Stop the persecution now.”
I STAND WITH KIM DAVIS.
