Tired of hearing about the lady in Kentucky, she is getting what she deserves.

I'm kind of tired of hearing about the Kentucky woman who is refusing rights. Not in the way it may seem, I believe in a person holding to their beliefs and morals, but those shouldn't interfere with the rights of others. If you disagree you can always find a different job, that's the way it works. It's one thing that she's not personally allowing gay people their licenses, it's another that no one in that office is allowing them. They have the right to marry, it's law now, and disputing that is only going to cause problems. I'm tired of hearing how Christians rights are being overlooked, they aren't. They have every right to not get married to someone of the same gender, they do not have the right to tell someone else they can't. Your beliefs should not trample the rights of others. Whether I agree with something or not, I don't find the need to tell someone else they have to agree with me, that's not how this country was founded. If we were like that we would be a lot like the middle eastern countries, where we go around forcing our beliefs on others. We can talk about them, we can disagree, but we don't get to say who has to believe or who doesn't. We don't get to make the decisions for others. This woman was breaking the law so therefore she got jail time, if she has an issue she can quit, simple as that. I get it's a high paying job, but if it's about her beliefs or morals then no one should be able to buy those, and she should quit, she doesn't get to decide she doesn't like it and refuse to abide by the law. Am I the only one who doesn't shove my beliefs on everyone else? I disagree with a lot of things but that doesn't mean I get to tell others that they have to do things my way. I could rant for hours on this subject, but my whole point is I'm tired of people using religion as an excuse to be a jerk. Believe what you want, and hold true to your own morals and beliefs, but don't expect others to have to agree with you, they don't have to. Stay true to who you are and let them be true to who they are.

I find the most compelling issue in what you say here Keisha and I couldnt agree more. 'No one should be able to buy those.ยจ Yes and that is what I feel she is hanging on to which is greed, which is a deadly sin.

Totally agree. She can believe in whatever she wants, but she doesn't have the right to deny others their rights. If she takes that big of an issue she can quit or have someone else issue the license, but when it comes down to it she is hanging on for the money, personally I think she should be fired, that would solve a lot of issues. People could get their marriage licenses and she won't have to sit in jail for refusal to abide by the law. It would take care of her issue with walking away from the job, because the decision would be taken out of her hands.

@sissy15 I had said that about being fired, but then someone said because she is elected, she would have to be voted out. I watched a video today of her husband saying that she will sit in jail to prove her point. And he said that he thought that the licenses that the office issued today(without her) were not legal..he is stone crazy.

@TiarasOceanView Oh please, why should she be elected out? We take people out of higher positions all the time for breaking the law. I hope she rots in there, she doesn't have to be there, this is her choice. This whole situation is messed up. I'd be more likely to go there and rally against her lol. She's not worth the time on the road though, if I had a car.
