Kim Rowan's Continues Fight For Her Rights

     Kim Rowan, embattled county clerk, now infamous for her recent role in the battle for Christians against gay marriage is still understandably in the media headlines. She has stood headstrong against countless numbers of media backlash, criticisms from the public as well as politicians, and  members of Congress. She has also received a whole lot of support from members of both Democrat and Republican parties, politicians, Donald Trump, church members, and strangely the pope. Why strange? The pope in past political and social disputes often sided with the liberal agenda. Pope Francis has sounded liberal to the extant that he has often been described as sounding like Obama. He earlier has shown support for same sex civil unions (not marriage) as well as an extensive redistribution of wealth (Sanchez, 2014). He made his earlier famous statements about homosexuals: "If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?" "Who am I to judge"? is an extremely popular quote from a Liberal looking for an easy way out from obey the Lord. Now he is showing support for Kim Rowan. Pope Francis made a recent comment after having a private meeting with her stating:  "I can't have in mind all the cases that can exist about conscientious objection, but, yes, I can say that conscientious objection is a right that is a part of every human right. It is a right. And if a person does not allow others to be a conscientious objector, he denies a right."
       And if a person does not allow others to be a conscientious objector he denies a right. Now I am not a fan of the pope. For one I do not trust him nor Catholicism. Jesus Christ in the Bible made no mention of requiring an old guy wearing a funny looking white costume to travel around the world smile at people and give orders. Nor did He ever imply people parading and glorifying such a person (or any person except Christ Himself of course) as if worshipping an idol. But what Pope Francis said to Kim Rowan and to the world is interesting. "Conscientious objection is a right and part of every human right. It is a right. This statement is supposed to resemble The United States Ist amendment of the Constitution. Congress should make no law prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech. Therefore even after the recent judgement by the supreme court making gay marriage legal and the supreme court's judgement against Kim Rowan stating that she cannot refuse to issue same sex marriage licenses, the supreme court has no right to make such laws or rulings against anybody. Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech. It is against the law for the court or Congress to create laws eliminating citizen's right to follow the ways of their religion. The Supreme Court is not the Supreme ruler or lawmaker of the United States. Neither can the court simply create laws out of the air because they have a majority atheist members who don't respect The God, the Bible, nor Christianity. That is why the First Amendment was written to protect Christian people and other citizens of the United States from a possible future uprising of another religion (ex liberals, atheist, Muslim, etc.) that may increase in numbers and grow hostile to non supporters of their beliefs. The Liberal party has grown into a hostile party and certainly needs to be kept in check from trying to take over the Christian people of the United States while enforcing their own immoral rules and make them the law of the land. The same way the Muslim fighters in the Mideast took over countries like Iraq and Iran that were once upon a time dominant Christian regions of the world but are now known for deep Islamic allegiance as well as hostilities towards those who happen to object Islam.
       Americans need people like Kim Rowan to fight back and not allow homosexuals and atheists to tell her that her Christian beliefs are not important or that they don't belong in the government. Unlike what they believe Christianity and the Bible highly influenced the creation of the Constitution. The Constitution of America was not designed to favor Liberalism or atheism as her antagonists insist on believing. Freedom of religion does not equal shutting out people's rights to not follow the religion of atheism or to not follow their belief in God once they enter into government. Freedom of religion, unlike what is often commented by many readers in a lot of these articles written on Kim Rowan's fight with the Supreme Court , does not equal people, government, and business being allowed to tell you to leave your Bible and your beliefs at home simply because they do not respect them. The Liberal party and their gang of followers are simply trying to rewrite the constitution into their own version of what they want to occur in the government as well as US businesses and eventually homes. Kim Rowan is right she needs to fight back. She has done nothing wrong. It is her right. Gay people cannot force her to accept their behavior as normal. It is her right to follow her belief that homosexuality is wrong and gays cannot get married. No one should be able to place her in jail for that. Hopefully someday someone will get it right and Kim Rowan will received monetary compensation for the abuse forced upon her. 
       Thankfully she is receiving help from people, churches, politicians like Mike Huckleberry, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio. Hopefully she will stand tall and realize that she is more importantly receiving help from the greatest supporter of all, God. He of all is the greatest and only supporter she really needs. Hopefully Kim Rowan's head is full enough of the good knowledge and wisdom to realize that she does not really need the pope's help. Who knows if that guy is honest about his stance with her or if he has something else in mind. Not that it is impossible for him to take the right stand but she honestly does not need his help. And I hope that she does not fall for the awe of him being the pope and actually meeting him in person to fall for the trap of losing focus on the cause. This is a fight for Jesus Christ and Christianity. A fight against being forced to accept and follow the behavior of homosexuality that is plainly written in the Bible as not only being immoral but also as an act of evil.
  Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men[a] 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. 

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

Kim Rowan, Underestimating a Determined Christian

       Kim Rowan, the Kentucky county clerk who refused to issue same sex marriage licences, is finally freed after being forced to sit in prison for six days. After hearing learning of the news hallelujah screams were being fired by both Christians and non Christians here in the US and much of the world, but where do things go from here? U.S District Judge David Bunning, who ordered her release, said she shall not in anyway interfere indirectly or directly with her deputy clerks in the distribution of marriage licenses to gay couples. The judge stated in his words "all legally eligible couples".  Well, what is Kim and the rest of the firm American believers against gay marriage going to decide on doing now? Do they obey the judge and bow down to atheist groups like the ACLU and the Americans for Democratic actions? Do they follow the religious teachings of scripture defying groups like the Presbyterian Church (USA)?
       Kim Rowan because of her faith in God and persistent desire to walk in obedience toward Him refused staunchly to provide approval for marriage certificate to gay couples. Even though many government officials and presidential candidates, like Republican runner Carly Fiorina,  like the President Obama, the abrasive Donald Trump, Kentucky governor Steve Beshear, and President Barak Obama himself were against  Kim, using the law as their excuse the county clerk still boldly stood her  ground, She went farther in her stand for God, taking more abuse then most people would have even come close to tolerating. She did not appear to much of the government and liberal media to have much going for her. Only one of her six deputy clerks stood with her in defying the Supreme Court ruling and that was her son. She did not appear to much of the government and liberal media to have much going for her. But help and strong words of encouragement kept on pouring in from good politicians, as well as churches, thousands, perhaps millions of Christians. Prayers kept on and continue to keep pouring in. Republican presidential candidate, and former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee ran to her side to provide her support. He stated that the Supreme Court, by itself, does not get to decide what the law of the land is. He earlier started a petition for her release that drew more than 55000 signatures (Scott & Diamond, 2015). Presidential candidate and former senator Rick Santorum stated that he disagreed with forcing people to do something that they believe is a grievous sin. Senator Rand Paul (Ky) called her jailing absurd. Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal supports Kim Rowan. Senator Ted Cruz (Tx) personally arrived in Rowan County Kentucky to show support for her.
       This may have been a huge mistake for the pro gay supporters and judge David Bunning to have made. A match has already been sparked underneath the toes of Christian men and women living in America when the Supreme Court ruled that gay marriage is legal. Now their very navel is being torched and burned with the reality of people's jobs being interfered with and individuals being forced to participate in a grievous behavior that Bible firmly calls an abomination (Leviticus 18:22, 20:13), Homosexuality is one of several sins listed in I Corinthians 6:9-12 that will send one to hell if not repented. Now Judge Bunning has released Kim Rowan from jail on the threat to send her back if she interferes with her clerks issuance of  the marriage license. Judge Bunning has set up an extremely tense show down between his authority and the freedom and rights of Christians walking and breathing all over America. He has brought up issues and defense of the IST Amendment that gives Americans freedom of their religion. Attorneys will be all over this. Republican candidates are already all over this. This issue will likely affect whoever gets elected as the Republican Presidential nominee.
       From one reading and browsing through these news reports and hearing Kim Rowan's emotionally charged but courageous speeches to the press, she does not appear to be at all ready to quit. This woman looks like she is going to staunchly refuse to the very end to allow her office to grant marriage licences to gay applicants. She may even fire her deputy clerks who was issuing the licenses under the order of Judge Bunning. Which now leads to a question of the legitimacy of those marriage licenses. Does Judge Bunning have the authority to place those marriages done in Rowan county under his name? Can a marriage license in Rowan County be officially legal if not signed and approved of by Kim Rowan? This fight is far from over. Atheists, pro gay rights groups have not clearly understood but maybe now will begin to understand how much suffering a True Christian will undergo to defend and obey her God. This is not just a matter about laws. Well now wait, even the laws as mentioned are in question. Many Christians in America still do not believe that Supreme Court, 9 people, have the right to simply state that gay marriage is legal and it becomes legal just like that, especially when many US citizens and governors, in their very own states, already legally voted to make gay marriages illegal. How much power and authority over each individual state and each legal citizen does the Supreme Court actually have?
       These are questions and comments that will be going back and forth through all these television news editors, commentator, government representatives and politicians for the next several months, perhaps years. This is an argument that may likely change America permanently. A lot of people are not going to go for this acceptance, especially not their personal involvement in the legalization and encouragement of homosexuality. A lot of people will not support this gay marriage hype and not just staunch Christians. Islam law forbids homosexuality. Orthodox Judaism does not accept gay marriage. Surprisingly, even with the 60% support numbers paraded by the pro-Liberal media many non religious or even atheist people are not supportive of gay marriage. Their opinions are simply ignored by many television and news reporters.
       This is a stunning news of events for many Americans. Many cannot believe this. For them a man or woman being gay is not a big deal or as often mentioned by the media "none of my business". But for many they have already seen this coming and now are ready to fight. America better be careful. Remember what happened in England several hundred years ago when they had a pompous king who belittled Christian people and believed he could treat them anyhow. His callous, unwise behavior eventually created war and what we now call the United States of America. Be careful Steve Beshear Be careful President Obama. Be careful Judge Ginsburg and Sotomayor. Be careful.
