Renegade KY Anti-Gay Clerk Kim Davis Defies SCOTUS, Issues Statement: I Don’t Want To Go To Hell

Hell Is Real

After the Supreme Court  Monday declined to intervene in the case of the Kentucky renegade “Christian” county clerk Kim Davis, exhausting all stays in her case of declining marriage licenses to same-sex couples. 

Miss Davis, the thrice divorced, bible-thumping dognapper once again on Tuesday refused to issues marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

According to The Associated Press, on Tuesday morning April Miller and Karen Roberts, arrived at the Rowan County Clerk’s office followed by dozens of television cameras that no licenses would be issued and refused to make Ms. Davis available.  Shortly afterward David Moore and David Ermold, rejected for a fourth time,  demanded to speak with Ms. Davis. “Tell her to come out and face the people she’s discriminating against,”

Davis cowardly remained in her office with the door closed and blinds drawn, but later emerged, brazenly declaring that her office would continue to deny the licenses “under God’s authority!”

Davis then demanded that Mr. Moore and Mr. Ermold to leave, but they refused to do so.

“We’re not leaving until we have a license,” Mr. Ermold said, according to media reports.

“Then you’re going to have a long day,” Ms. Davis told him.

Later, the anti-gay legal group the Liberty Counsel has issued a statement from  Davis.

“I have worked in the Rowan County Clerk’s office for 27 years as a Deputy Clerk and was honored to be elected as the Clerk in November 2014, and took office in January 2015. I love my job and the people of Rowan County. I have never lived any place other than Rowan County. Some people have said I should resign, but I have done my job well. This year we are on track to generate a surplus for the county of 1.5 million dollars.

“In addition to my desire to serve the people of Rowan County, I owe my life to Jesus Christ who loves me and gave His life for me. Following the death of my godly mother-in-law over four years ago, I went to church to fulfill her dying wish. There I heard a message of grace and forgiveness and surrendered my life to Jesus Christ. I am not perfect. No one is. But I am forgiven and I love my Lord and must be obedient to Him and to the Word of God.

“I never imagined a day like this would come, where I would be asked to violate a central teaching of Scripture and of Jesus Himself regarding marriage. To issue a marriage license which conflicts with God’s definition of marriage, with my name affixed to the certificate, would violate my conscience. It is not a light issue for me. It is a Heaven or Hell decision. For me it is a decision of obedience. I have no animosity toward anyone and harbor no ill will.

“To me this has never been a gay or lesbian issue. It is about marriage and God’s Word. It is a matter of religious liberty, which is protected under the First Amendment, the Kentucky Constitution, and in the Kentucky Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Our history is filled with accommodations for people’s religious freedom and conscience. I want to continue to perform my duties, but I also am requesting what our Founders envisioned – that conscience and religious freedom would be protected. That is all I am asking. I never sought to be in this position, and I would much rather not have been placed in this position. I have received death threats from people who do not know me. I harbor nothing against them. I was elected by the people to serve as the County Clerk. I intend to continue to serve the people of Rowan County, but I cannot violate my conscience.”

One has to wonder why the mainstream news media not asking Davis how she reconciles her four marriages with Jesus’ commandment on divorce and remarriage?

Davis: “I love my job and the people of Rowan County.” …Well all except the gay ones.

The White House Stonewalls The Community Again On The LGBT Fed Contractor ENDA Executive Order

ENDAEarlier this week in an interview on Huffington Post Vice President Joe Biden said he didn’t see any downside in the President issuing an executive order  on LGBT workplace discrimination for federal contractors but said that the White House still prefers the matter be handled legislatively, by passing ENDA.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney was asked about that statement yesterday.

Here is the transcript, via the White House:

Q    The Vice President said yesterday that he doesn’t see any downside to the President taking executive action on LGBT workplace discrimination.  Does the President agree?

MR. CARNEY:  Well, I think the complete statement was that what we’re focused on — the big accomplishment, which would be passage by both houses of Congress and the signing into law by the President of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.

I think it’s — points have been made, and I think in response to something I said earlier, that it’s clear that executive orders aren’t necessarily completely overlapping with what would be achieved by legislation.  I think there’s no doubt that the legislation would be a far greater accomplishment and more broadly applied.  And that is why we continue to push the House to follow the Senate’s lead and pass that, because those who oppose it, I hope — at least their children — will regret the reasons they put forward for opposing it, because they sound a lot like the reasons opponents argued against civil rights legislation in the past.  And they were wrong there.  They’re wrong now.

So I don’t have any updates on suggested or proposed executive orders.  What I can tell you is that we still call on Congress, the House, to follow the Senate’s lead and pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.

Q    What is there a reluctance to do something on the executive order when it could complement this broader push that you guys really want?

MR. CARNEY:  Again, I just don’t engage in discussion about speculative executive orders.  When the President decides to take action using his administrative authority, some —

Q    But the Vice President speculated.  He said that he didn’t see any downside.

MR. CARNEY:  No, I think he answered a question about it, as I have repeatedly.   And I’m happy to.  I think this is an incredibly important issue, and I think it is remarkable how much progress has been made and remarkable that there is still resistance to the progress that remains to be made.  That’s certainly the President’s view.

I just don’t — I try not to engage in speculation about any executive action the President may or may not take.  What I can tell you is that there is legislation on Capitol Hill that we strongly support and would like to see passed by the House.  Thank you all very much.

At this point and time in history there is absolutely no reason for President Obama NOT to sign such an Executive Order protecting the federal contractor LGBT workforce from being discriminated against by their respective contractors until the day a fully inclusive and non-religious exempted ENDA is passed by the legislature.

And indeed there is Presidential precedent for such an executive order:

*President Roosevelt had responded to complaints about discrimination at home against African Americans by issuing Executive Order 8802 in June 1941, directing that blacks be accepted into job-training programs in defense plants, forbidding discrimination by defense contractors, and establishing a Fair Employment Practices Commission (FEPC)

*Executive Order 10925, signed by President John F. Kennedy on March 6, 1961, required government contractors to “take affirmative action to ensure that applicants are employed and that employees are treated during employment without regard to their race, creed, color, or national origin.

*Executive Order 11246, signed by President Lyndon B. Johnson on September 24, 1965, established requirements for non-discriminatory practices in hiring and employment on the part of U.S. government contractors. It “prohibits federal contractors and federally assisted construction contractors and subcontractors, who do over $10,000 in Government business in one year from discriminating in employment decisions on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.”

Here we have our first black President refusing to sign an Executive Order to protect the civil right and employment rights of LGBT Americans.  This is not only is it a slap to the LGBT community it flies in the face of great late Presidents who actually fought for the civil rights of the american people.

While the current version of ENDA sitting in the House of Representatives is dangerous and contains so many religious exemptions that will harm us. (Thanks to Tico Almedia and Freedom to Work ) an EO protecting LGBT federal contractor employees is the right first step until a better and stronger version of ENDA can be written.

President Obama should be ashamed of himself.



OMFG! – Wilcox County High School in Georgia to Host First Integrated Prom

Integrated Prom

Wilcox County High School in Rochelle Georgia about 50 miles outside of Macon will have its first integreted prom this year.

Yes you read that right.  In 2013 Wilcox High will integrated its prom.  But Homecoming will still be segregated.

There’s a white prom and then we have our integrated prom,” said student Keela Bloodworth.

Keela added that if any race other than Caucasian tries to attend the white prom, that student would probably be escorted off the premises by police. That was the case last year when a biracial student was turned away by police.

While having two separate dances, the school decided to elect only one pair for Homecoming king and queen for the first last year.

Quanesha Wallace won.

“I felt like there had to be a change because for me to be a black person and the king to be a white person, I felt like, you know why can’t we come together,” said Wallace. But nothing changed. Quanesha wasn’t invited to the white Homecoming dance. In fact, the pair took separate photos for the school yearbook.

We’re embarrassed, it’s embarrassing,” said student Stephanie Sinnot.

So the senior class is raising money to pay for the integrated prom, without the help of school officials to be held April 27

But, not everyone is fond of the idea. Some of the posters for the integrated prom that were hung up have been ripped to the ground.

I am INCENSED.   If it had read this on Monday, I would have thought it was an April Fool’s joke.

If anyone out there wants to give these kids some help or some kind words of advice like “GET OUT OF THERE AFTER GRADUATION” they have a Facebook page HERE

And if you want to give Wilcox County High School in Macon, GA a piece of your mind and some seriously earned grief you can call them by using this phone number (229) 365-7231


Queen Latifah Backpeddles: I Did Not Come Out! (I’m Still In The Closet)

Well it was just a matter of time.

Queen Latifah aka Dana Elaine Owens told Entertainment Weekly that  because of the way that some  members in the audience and the media received her words when she appeared at Long Beach Pride (and despite the fact that EVERYONE knows) that she definitely DID NOT COME OUT OF THE CLOSET

“That definitely wasn’t the case,” she tells EW. “I’ve never dealt with the question of my personal life in public. It’s just not gonna happen.” That said, the 42-year old was thrilled to participate in the event and even recalled an earlier performance for gay audiences. “To me, doing a gay pride show is one of the most fun things,” she says. “My first show that paid more than $10,000 was in a gay club on New Year’s Eve in San Francisco. Tupac happened to be in town, so he came to kick it with me. This was the early ’90s. And the boys were like, ‘Take your shirt off, Tupac!’ He wasn’t doing that. But we had a blast in there.”

You know what DANA?  YOU are an embarrassment.  Not only to yourself but to the LGBT community because once again instead of being a role model you send the message loud and clear that sexual orientation and LGBT identity is something embarrassing,  shameful, and not important

Do us a favor Queen Latifah,  NEVER COME OUT.  Because frankly, after this stunt.  I don’t think any of us want you to be one of us anymore.

So Dana, continue to hide in that glass closet that fools no one, while taking our money until the day you think your career is over and coming out can do no “damage”.

So whats your next move Queenie?  Going to marry Kevin Spacey?

Log Cabin Republicans File Brief Opposing The Department of Justice’s Request for STAY DADT Injunction – Gay Inc. Should Be Ashamed

“With the injunction in place, nothing will change with regard to the composition of the military, the training, promotion, demotion, and deployment of servicemembers, the mission and operations of the armed forces, or anything else that pertains to the important governmental interest that the military serves. The evidence at trial showed that homosexual men and women already serve today; they are deployed to theaters of combat when needed – indeed, retained overall in greater numbers during times of combat – even if they are openly homosexual; it is their discharge, not their presence, that if anything impacts morale and good order.”

So states the brief, in part, filed by The Log Cabin Republicans opposing the government’s request for a stay of the injunction barring enforcement of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy.

Now, I am no fan of the Log Cabin Republicans and I can hardly believe that they are actually doing some good when it comes to the repeal of DADT.  But this also makes another major point at how inepdt Gay Inc. really is when the HRC, Lambda Legal and The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force is shown up and left in the dust on an important gay rights issue lie the DADT repeal by a bunch of homocons like the LCR.  They should be ashamed and we should learn a lesson from it.
