A Gay Time In Kentucky


cjones09042015

I’m going to catch some Hell for this one. I’m talking about Hell on Earth, in this life.

I’m not just going to catch it from readers. Many newspapers who subscribe to my cartoons are small newspapers in Red states such as Mississippi, Georgia, Alabama, Texas, Kansas, Arkansas, Montana, South Carolina, West, Virginia, Indiana, Missouri, Arizona, Nebraska, etc. I’ll probably be OK with my newspaper in Utah. They’re pretty provocative.

I don’t follow the Bible. I’m not religious. That doesn’t mean I believe people should live a guilt and conscience free life without consequences. I believe people should treat people in a Christian way. There are redeeming values in religion. One of those values is that you shouldn’t treat people like crap.

I don’t care if people believe in God. I’m not on a mission to convert anyone. Atheists who do so annoy me more than religious people. Half the point of being an atheist is that I don’t have to go to meetings and we don’t have to wake up early on Sundays and listen to terrible music. I also don’t believe people should try to convert you to their god.

I also believe that you should understand the job description before you take the job. The County Clerk in Rowan County, Kentucky, Kim Davis, should quit her job. She’s refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. She’s citing her religious beliefs and religious freedom. Religious freedom does not you have freedom to crap on people who have beliefs and lifestyles you frown upon. Plus, it’s really hard to sell you’re defending God’s viewpoint when you have violated it multiple times yourself by being thriced divorced and having had committed adultery.

If you really hate alcohol and believe it’s a sin then maybe you shouldn’t get a job as a liquor distributor. If you believe certain people shouldn’t have the right to get married then maybe you shouldn’t have a job issuing marriage licenses. If your conscience is so thick with the burden then quit your job.

I also don’t want to hear your argument when you believe in talking snakes, the Earth is only 6,000 years old and it was populated by a couple with two sons.

Plus, I can’t get on board with that no eating bacon thing.

  1. State endorsed marriage is bigotry to begin with. The mere existence of these licenses proves it. Just look up their history. I’m not even sure why this has to do with equality, when it’s obviously about two sides in a superiority contest. Just that one side has the ad populum/straw man fallacy to their advantage (more people actually believe that than imagined, leading to an overall consensual conclusion of the masses being capable of believing anything.)

    I say abolish marriage altogether from the state and union, and call it good.
