Kim Davis is a conscientious objector, now in jail for contempt. Her crime? Refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. If she had refused to comply with a law that required her to sit in the back of a bus in Montgomery, Alabama, she might have been hailed as “the first lady of civil rights.”
Does the Bitemaster agree with Davis? No. But the outrage her actions have provoked has more to do with her position on gay rights than whether she has the obligation to resist unjust laws.
