Fairly straightforward, Kim Davis was supposed to issue marriage licenses to same-sex marriage couples, as is “the law”, but refused to, due to her personal beliefs being in opposition … now she’s in jail, and refuses to comply …

Some are pro Kim’s decision to stand up for what she believes in, slogans like “Kim Davis for president”. Others are very anti in that – she, an elected government official, feels she’s “above the law” and refuses to “do her job”. And obviously the bigotry angle – why shouldn’t same-sex couples enjoy the same rights as everyone else ?
Personally, I’m in the anti Kim camp – on the basis that the rest of us have to obey the law, regardless of whether we “agree” with it or not. That’s life.
Kim Davis – Bigot Or Hero ?
