Kim Davis should be unemployed

Kim Davis, the now infamous Kentucky clerk who refused to give same-sex couples marriage licenses, has been freed after serving only five days in jail for contempt of court.

Davis, claiming it is against her religious beliefs to recognize such unions, has been a canonizing figure for those individuals who seem to forget that marriage between same-sex couples is now protected by law.

The judge who released Davis, U.S. District Judge David Bunning, did so with a caveat: If Davis interferes with the issuing of marriage certificates to same-sex couples in any way shape or form, she will find herself behind bars yet again.

Why don’t we make the situation much simpler and simply remove Davis from her position as a county clerk? If she doesn’t want to be responsible for the issuing of such documents that would license same-sex couple to be married, a right that is protected by federal law, than she should be removed from the equation all together.
Should she be rendered destitute and unemployed? Of course not. But if she refuses to do her job than she should no longer fill such a pivotal role in the lives of others.

In a perfect world Davis would be swept under the proverbial rug and forgotten as another close minded religious zealot and her 15 minutes of fame would be over.

But sadly, we are not that lucky, especially since she is being used as a foothold for would-be Republican Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee.

Huckabee himself was present at Davis’ release, obviously soaking up the limelight while Davis greeted her supporters to the tune of Survivors’ “Eye Of The Tiger,” made popular by its use in the film “Rocky III.”

Davis isn’t even a Republican. She’s a Democrat. But at this time she is such a magnet for media that anyone and everyone is going to be latching onto her like a life raft. It’s only a matter of time until Donald Trump pays her a visit.

If Davis cannot fulfill her job for religious reasons, she should just move on so we can all get on with our lives and the people of Kentucky can get on with their happy lives and she can go on with her close-minded hatred.
