Letter to the Editor

I think the jailing of Kim Davis, the Kentucky Clerk who refused to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples was the right thing for the judge to do. Like many older Americans I think gay marriage is “a little weird”. But this is America where people have the freedom to be a little weird. That’s what living in a free country is all about.

Likewise as a Christian Kim Davis talks to invisible people, which is also “a little weird”. But if a gay clerk refused to issue her a marriage license because she was strange – well – that would be wrong. Just like Seventh Day Adventists who don’t take jobs where they are required to work on Saturday, if Kim Davis can’t do what she is required to do because of her religion, she should get a job that is compatible with her beliefs
