We should be exceedingly thankful to, and grateful for heroic citizens and public servants like Kim Davis, a county clerk in Kentucky who was willing to stand up for religious freedom and her conscience and go to jail in the face of the blatantly idiotic ruling by five unelected justices to mandate that homosexual marriage (a total oxymoron) be the law of the land. This bare majority ruling, by a too-self-important-to-be-embarrassed Supreme Court of the U.S. included two justices who should have recused themselves based on prior public rulings in similar cases. It was unconstitutional, is blind to reality and has made the United States the laughing stock of most of the civilized world.

Given the objective, moral disorder of homosexual activity and its common practices as well as its medical implications in regard to transmission of serious and potentially fatal diseases, SCOTUS’ mandate for legalizing such parings is of service to no one, which tears at the fabric of civilized society. It will continue to divide ours for at least as long as the Roe v. Wade decision of 1973.

Let us pray that Kim Davis’ heroism be suitably rewarded, that the religious freedom which this country has enjoyed since its founding, at least in principle, be restored soon and that we quickly return to the adherence to the U.S. Constitution that made this country great.
