Chat Away


MEMO TO: Kim Davis, Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz, et al

Many words in the English language have different meanings. Like “rose”, which is a type of flower, a girl’s name, a color, and the past tense of ‘rise.’

“Marriage” has more than one meaning. The Sacrament of Marriage ≠ Marriage:The Legal Contract. They have nothing to do with each other legally. You can have both or none or one or the other.

You don’t need a church/religion to get Married:The Legal Contract in the USA. If you receive The Sacrament of Marriage in a church, (which churches have complete control over who they allow to have this sacrament – they can say no to anyone they like) you’re not legally married in the eyes of the law, unless you file the Marriage:The Legal Contract license, with the state capital before the expiration date (they’re usually good for 90 days.).

If you fail to file the Marriage:The Legal Contract license, you’re not legally married, no matter what you did in a church.

Kim Davis doesn’t work for a church, and her job has nothing whatsoever to do with The Sacrament of Marriage (which you do not need a license for.) Her job as County Clerk, is to validate ID’s and make sure the people applying for whatever county license/record they’re applying for (birth, death, marriage, hunting, fishing, and voting registration among other duties – see this:, are who they say they are.

Validating IDs for a legal contract that has nothing to do with any religion or church, shouldn’t have any religious connotations unduly placed upon it whatsoever.

Kim Davis not only broke the law, she did it completely outside of the context of her religion. Shame her pastor/preacher and SuperGrifter™ Attorney failed to explain that to her, and has allowed Mike Huckabee, and other money-grabbers to encourage her down this path of stupidity, mockery, and public humiliation.
