UPDATE: County Clerk Kim Davis Jailed


Yesterday a federal judge imprisoned Kim Davis. The judge declared that she must uphold the law. We respond by saying: What law? There is not a single law in the whole state of Kentucky that requires any public official to accommodate homosexual marriage. In fact, every law in the entire state requires that they NOT accommodate homosexual marriage.

Furthermore, there is not a single federal law within all the thousands of plethora of federal laws that requires Kentucky officials to marry homosexuals.

The truth is Kim Davis is upholding the law. She is trying to rein in the lawlessness of the federal judiciary. The Supreme Court is the anarchist here – Kim Davis is trying to restore order.

The American people have been fed a fiction – that everyone must obey the Supreme Court because of the Supremacy Clause.

When you read the Supremacy Clause however – Article 6, paragraph 2 of the U.S. Constitution – you see that the Supreme Court or federal courts are not even mentioned. Rather, what has supremacy is the U. S. Constitution itself and all laws or treaties made in accordance with the Constitution.

True federalism understands that all magistrates – whatever their level or sphere of jurisdiction – possess lawful authority. And that whenever one branch of government begins to play the tyrant – all other branches (whether federal, state, county, or local) have the duty then more than ever to uphold the Constitution and oppose that branch acting tyrannically – even if that branch is the Supreme Court.

Let us say loud and clear: The Supreme Court cannot make law. That takes legislators. Their opinion is not the ‘law of the land.’

What Kim Davis has done is not about religious liberty – it is about reining in a lawless federal judiciary.

It is now incumbent upon all other magistrates – sheriff’s, district attorneys, judges from all spheres of government, and legislators from all spheres of government – to rally around Kim Davis, interpose on her behalf, and defy a lawless federal judiciary.

It is now incumbent upon the people to rally around Kim Davis and assure her of their support – with their persons, with their finances, with their prayers. They must also prod their state and federal magistrates to interpose on her behalf and defy the lawlessness of the federal judiciary.

Kim Davis is to be commended. Precious few magistrates in our nation have decided not to pay homage to the Supreme Court. But this has been the history of Christian people. Because their fealty is to Christ first and not the State – they benefit the civil authorities and the nation as a whole.

By their refusal to comply with immoral decrees by the State, they remind the civil authority that their authority is delegated and has limits. Perhaps it will cause those acting tyrannically to recover themselves and repent. They also benefit the nation – because their obedience to Christ and subsequent suffering acts as a check against tyranny and preserves liberty and moral sanity.
