She's in the Jailhouse Now

by Pa Rock

Kim Davis, the duly elected clerk of Rowan County, Kentucky, who works under the direct authority of God, has been marched off to jail due to her refusal to follow a court order and issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.  This morning her deputy clerks, whom Ms. Davis said could not issue marriage licenses in her absence, began doing so anyway.

Ms. Davis, an apostolic Christian, has become a cause celebre among right wing loonies and several GOP presidential-contender loonies, all of whom apparently believe that the ability to ignore the Constitution and the law of the land  is an important Constitutional right.

There is no word yet on whether Kim Davis chose to take her flying monkeys to jail with her or not.

According to ABC News the longest anyone has been jailed for contempt is 14 years. A Philadelphia attorney was presumed by the court to be hiding an enormous sum of money as the marital estate was being divided. Unlike breaking a statutory law the person can be kept in jail until the contempt is cured. That is because contempt lays at the heart of the judiciary's equitable powers.

Kim Davis should read Mark 12:17 and hire lawyers who have had a course in Constitutional Law from an ABA accredited law school. If her attorney were properly educated, they should sue their respective law schools for not teaching them the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.
