Kim Davis

I don't believe in God, but I can totally see why there's tons of people who do. He can bring comfort to people. He can be a source of hope and guidance. Maybe he's the only light you have when you're surrounded by darkness.
Everyone has different reasons to believe in him. People should have every right to believe in whatever they want so long as they're not hurting anybody.

I don't know about you, but if I did believe in a God, he would be someone who accepts everyone so long as they're a good person. I feel like most of the christians who use God as an excuse to hurt others or discriminate against others don't really get that God is supposed to be this source of love and acceptance and guidance. Which brings me to Kim Davis:

She has been all over the place online and on tv for the simple reason of: she refuses to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples despite gay marriage being legal in America, and despite being ordered to do so. Like, this woman is literally refusing to do her job correctly because of whatever God she's got going on in her mind.
I'm all for freedom of religion, again, so long as it isn't hurting anyone, but I'm also for separation of church and state. You are at work, and that means that you should do your job even if there's something about it that you do not enjoy (unless it actually is detrimental to your health in some way) such as issuing a marriage license to a same-sex couple. If you are not doing your job properly or as you should be doing it, you should be replaced by someone who will.

I'm actually going to say that I agree with her being in jail. Not because I hate her, though she does seem like a bad person, and not because of her religion (like, what's his name, Mike Huckabee? is actually saying she was jailed for being christian as if there wasn't even the slightest possibility that she was doing something wrong) but because she was literally federally court ordered to do her job correctly as she is supposed to do and she just out-right refused and continued as she was, and now she and a lawyer are trying to pursue potential charges of misconduct against her.
It isn't misconduct if she was COURT-ORDERED to do something and then was arrested for not doing that thing that she was ordered to do. That's contempt of court, and it's illegal.

You know who else acts in a discriminatory and hateful manner in the name of God? The Westboro Baptist Church. I bet she'd fit right in there, maybe she could join. Though I doubt it because apparently not even the Westboro Baptist Church supports her, because of her past with adultery and the fact that she had kids out of wedlock. I mean, the woman has a complicated past when it comes to marriage:
