Going to the courthouse, going to get married UPDATE

The photo from Twitter shows an ACLU attorney yesterday with plaintiffs in the lawsuit to get equal rights for marriage license applicants in Rowan County, Ky.

With Clerk Kim Davis in jail for contempt for  refusing the U.S. Supreme Court's guidance, deputy clerks say they will issue licenses and the ACLU believes they will do so today.

Again: This was not about Kim Davis' personal beliefs and a lack of alternatives. This was about Kim Davis and religious tyrants like her lawyer and Mike Huckabee who want to make their religion the controlling authority over the U.S. Constitution. If their approach to religion reminds you of some other religions they like to deplore, it should.

UPDATE: Indeed, same-sex couples got marriages licenses today in Kim Davis County, Ky., despite her effort to impose her religion as law over the U.S. Supreme Court. Davis' fourth husband (only third if you count that she married him twice) held up a sign saying, "Welcome to Sodom and Gomorrah."

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
