Kim Davis has defenders
Of her freedom, but I stress:
This fundamental freedom is
Her freedom to oppress!
Some candidates for president
Are charging to her side—
They claim she has god-given rights
That cannot be denied!
She has the right to take a stand
The right to choose her fights
The right to pound the bible and…
Deny another’s rights!
Kim Davis has some special rights
Gay couples clearly don’t;
A right, of course, gets granted—
Grant gay marriage? Davis won’t.
Your right to swing your fist ends where my nose begins (I find it refreshing to find out that there is no definitive source, merely legend, for the source of this beautiful idea). Kim Davis is, of course, the government; she is doing her best to convince us that she, the person who hands out the county’s permission to marry, is not the government but just another schmuck like us. No. She is the government. She is overreach. She is Big Brother. She is the camera in your bedroom.
As mentioned before, small-government politicians are elbowing each other black and blue to stand arm-in-arm with Davis. They reflexively defend a christian’s freedom, without thinking that in this case, plainly and simply, the christian is the oppressive government goon.
But Kim Davis is quite clearly playing the role of the oppressive government goon (all goons are playing roles–just watch “Slapshot”); Davis is the oppressor, not the oppressed. Everything she claims she fights against, she embodies. If she could see it, I suspect her head would explode.
