Re: Case Closed - Kim Davis Has Won the Fight for Religious Freedom Aug 19, 2016

Every adult already is treated equally under the marriage law regardless of their interests. That is, every adult can marry another adult of the opposite sex. If they don't want to participate in that, for whatever reason, that doesn't give anybody the right to redefine the meaning of the marriage.

Also, any adult can legally have a commitment ceremony and draw up a contract that sorts out and agrees to wills, property and hospital visitation rights, etc, again, without redefining the marriage law. People can make wills and designate their belongings to whoever they want. It's very easy to list beneficiaries on bank accounts, brokerage accounts, etc. Same thing with power of attorney and hospital visitation, etc. Just fill out the paperwork.

We all have different kinds of relationships. Some people are particularly close to a parent, or perhaps a sibling(s). Even just a best friend. Nobody is going to stop you from leaving your things to these people or allowing them to visit you in the hospital if you put your wishes in writing.

Now can you get tax breaks from your relationship with a sibling? No, I guess not, but everything else is there for all the different types of relationships that EVERYBODY has.
Not everybody has a spouse, but they are able to state their wishes in writing for all the above mentioned except for the tax breaks. Why should the relationships of people who are attracted to others of the same sex be elevated above the relationships that everybody else have? Anyway, here are the implications of redefining marriage...

"MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) — A jailed Kentucky clerk asserted that marriage licenses issued without her authority Friday to gay couples in Rowan County are void and "not worth the paper they are written on" because she didn't authorize them, her attorney said.

Kim Davis now wears an orange jumpsuit and "has already been doing Bible studies with herself" in jail, her attorney Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel told reporters after meeting with her behind bars. He said Davis is in very good spirits, and is prepared to stay as long as it takes to uphold her religious freedoms.

"She's not going to resign, she's not going to sacrifice her conscience, so she's doing what Martin Luther King Jr. wrote about in his Letter from the Birmingham Jail, which is to pay the consequences for her decision," Staver said.

She wanted them to accomodate a way where she didn't have to put her name on the licenses. They couldn't even just wait until she received that accomodation and threw her in jail."
