You would think that the fanatical anti-gay group known as the Westboro Baptist Church would be the strongest supporters of Rowan County clerk Kim Davis, now in jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses because of her opposition to same-sex marriages.
But it turns out that they are some of her harshest critics and accuse her of helping to legitimize homosexuality. Why? Well, you have to apply some Westboro-logic to resolve this seeming contradiction.
They say that because Davis has been married four times, she is an adultress and thus has contributed to the general sinfulness of the nation of which homosexuality is one part.
Addressing Davis, who has been married four times –twice to the same man — and reportedly had twins out of wedlock, Westboro tweeted: “‘Surely as a wife treacherously departeth from her husband, so have ye dealt treacherously with me.’ -The LORD”
They have followed up with a series of tweets (see above link) against the person they call a “phony divorced/remarried traitor to God,” with the hashtag “#NotChristian.”
In one of their tweets, they make the same point that many of us have been making: “What if a clerk denied #KimDavis a license for her 2nd/3rd/4th marriage because Christ calls it adultery?”
They say that Davis’s claim that she found Jesus just four years ago and has been forgiven for her past sins and so her previous marriages should not be held against her does not wash because according to the Bible only her first marriage is valid and so she is still currently living in sin with a man who is not her ‘real’ husband.
To be called out by the WBC of all people for hypocrisy and contributing to acceptance of gays has got to hurt.
