Timing

I detest, despise, loathe, abhor, and hate with a passion those damned annoying ads that place themselves over the caption on videos. But this one showed up with perfect timing in a video of today's rally for Kim Davis. I'm still chuckling (but I still want those damn ads to go away!).

MSNBC makes it official.

MSNBC has officially volunteered for irrelevancy. All day long prison shows for Labor Day.

Rupert Murdoch must be laughing his ass off.

Thanks, Tanks, and Transformation: An Open Letter to Kim Davis

(Note: This really is quite extraordinary, and not at all what I thought it would be, had me quite literally in tears.)


Dear Sister in Christ,

I want to write you this letter to express my sincerest and heart-felt thank you for what you are doing, but not for the reasons you might think. I am quite sure there are many opponents of Marriage Equality who are writing you letters supporting your willful insubordination to the duties of your office in the name of Christ. To many Christians you are taking a stand for “righteousness” and, even if you are jailed or forced to resign from your office because of your actions, you will be celebrated through this country as a martyr for Jesus Christ. No doubt you will be offered a book deal, be invited on news broadcasts, and go on a nationwide speaking tour. The name “Kim Davis” has already been associated with the “Tank Man,” the brave man who ironically and defiantly stood against government oppression by using his body to block the column of tanks rolling through Tiananmen Square in 1989. To many you are a freedom fighter, a veritable patriot opposing government tyranny. You have taken up your cross of righteousness and willingly bear it for truth.

Except that you are the government. You hold an elected position as clerk of Rowan County, Kentucky. Upon taking your office, you took an oath to support federal and state constitutions and laws. You are not the “Tank Man,” Ms. Davis; you are the Tanks. You have not taken up your cross; you are the Roman legions nailing innocent LGBTQ people to the cross of your faith. The power you hold as clerk is power you willingly took to yourself when you ran for and were elected as county clerk. It is power that, if your conscience is truly stricken because of your deeply held religious beliefs, you can and should willingly lay aside.
