"I dedicate this book to my three husbands (one of whom I married twice), the twins I had in an adulterous affair, and the sacred and holy institution of marriage."

If this is what its god's authority looks like it's no wonder Christianity is losing adherents in the United States.

Is that the actual cover? That is really not the most flattering picture of her to use there.

/also, screw her with a rusty pipe - she is one of the many reasons that we cannot have nice things

The fact that the word "God's" is tucked behind her shoulder on the cover is a blatant indication that she is putting herself before God, and therefore is in violation of several key bits of the Bible.

If she wants to be a martyr, she should get on with it. I'm not stopping her.

Exactly how does this chucklefark's life warrant a memoir?  Apart from one brief incident where she got some attention in the news, I imagine her entire life's been extremely dull.   Is there a whole chapter about what kind of cinderblock she uses to prop up her home?   Yet it fills out a whole book?!

The woman played husband roulette like a rentboy at a Republican National Convention.  Her life probably hasn't been dull.  Not epic, mind you, but not exactly dull.

Not if she was raped and the guy gave her daddy $20 - then it's all good.

When you're talking about homosexuality, the Martyr Complex really goes without saying.

"I'm persecuted more!"  "No, I'M persecuted more!"  "No, I'M PERSECUTED more!"  "NO!  I'M PERSECUTED MORE!"

And so on and so on until you say fark it and persecute both sides and that helps NO ONE.

You think American Christians have read the Bible?  Outside of using it as a blunt instrument, I figure most of them make up shiat and scream BUT THE JESUS and expect it to be covered.  Kinda like what the slightly smarter of them have turned the Constitution into.

I'm amazed that Kim Davis is holding onto this whole thing longer than the guys who wanted to be married are.
 
2018-03-08 01:33:08 PM  
The whole Kim Davis thing was disgusting and not just because of the blatant bigotry on display. The thing that bothered me most was that people were defending an elected official's illehal discrimination because she was "standing up to big government". The arrogance and hypocrisy is just too much.

WTF are you going on about?
 
2018-03-08 01:34:30 PM  
From TFA:  Davis repeatedly mentions a man named David Ermold who, with his partner, kept asking for a marriage license knowing full well she wouldn't give them one. They came back to her office multiple times, always with reporters to document the discrimination.

She doesn't say this in the book, but Ermold is running to become the Rowan County clerk. He wants to unseat her. Now that would be divine irony.

You can support his campaign here.


Okay FARK, you know what to do.

You're not supposed to be using that picture without permission.
 
2018-03-08 01:35:45 PM  
This was news to me: The Rowan County attorney told her very clearly that she was on her own. The county's insurance provider wasn't going to pay any part of a potential legal bill because she wasn't listening to the attorney's advice.
Kim Davis deserved every last bit of punishment she got after she refused to do what the county attorney suggested she do.
 
2018-03-08 01:36:09 PM  
Bullshiat like this is why I haven't been to a church in almost 7 years and instead doing the whole Mathew 6:6 approach of worshipping behind closed doors so not to be associated with these idiots.
 
2018-03-08 01:36:19 PM

Neither are.

Right.  Because being told you can't tie people to fences and stone them is exactly as bad as being tied to a fence and stoned to death.

From the article, she doesn't hate the gays:

... I wrap my arms around my gay friends and hug them and love them as well as I do anybody else. They are precious people made in God's image. And I love them.

I'm gonna through the BS flag here.  Look at her hair and the way she dresses.  She obviously has no gay friends.

Don't do that.  Why mock her appearance when we can simply focus on how she's an ugly person on the inside?

I'm right here champ.
And yes, it was civil disobedience.

Wrongheaded, discriminatory, and hateful civil disobedience.

What she missed about the doctrine of civil disobedience is the willingness to accept the legal consequences for your actions.

Oh, and I should add that the timing of their acts is materially different.

Newsome acted before the courts had addressed thevissue in an effort to get the courts to take up the issue.

She acted only after the courts had taken up and ruled on the issue at the very highest level.
