Hypocrisy Abounds

Regarding this clerk in Kentucky who is refusing to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples; I suspect she is glad that the clerk who issued the documents for her three divorces was not a Catholic who did not believe in divorce. Idiot.

Update, Friday 7:00am: Yes, I should have said that stupidity abounds. As Bruce points out, this hardly rises to the level of hypocrisy. She's now in jail but, no, we are not imprisoning people for stupidity. She is in prison for refusing to "Render unto Ceaser that which is Ceaser's" as the Bible, to which she claims slavish loyalty, instructs her to do.

Double hypocrisy, because she won't issue to hetero couples either, which should be okay in her view. But I guess she doesn't out of "fairness" or somesuch.

I think even Jesus believed in separatgion of church and state, as he was telling the people 'render unto C what is his and unto God what is His'. And of course, the separation of church and state in the Constitution.

So many grounds for her to be wrong. And of course, it just emboldens the religious wingnuts. Egads.
