The government doesn't, and shouldn't, decide who is married, and neither should Kim Davis.

But if it absolutely must give us permission to be married, then we shouldn't be subject to Kim's religious convictions, any more than we should be subject to those of any other religious fanatic.

Marriages recognized by the federal government and states are legal and not religious marriages. Atheists, Hindus, Muslims can be married. This bitch seems to only recognize Christian marriages. She could just have easily denied atheists a marriage license based on her religious convictions. Do you see why she needs to only go by the law? BTW, I personally feel it's stupid to have gays marry in a church as they don't play by the rules, but legal marriage is necessary for health insurance coverage of spouses, legal power attorney (e.g., decisions on spouse in coma), and IRS reasons (declaring married status for income taxes).

Mostly agree, but

Yeah. Legal legal legal. "Legal" marriage is a legal thing only, that doesn't necessarily have anything to do with real marriage. It shouldn't exist, imo.

edit: And she doesn't apparently understand that.
