If the presidential candidate you’re leaning towards doesn’t understand something as simple as Congress makes laws not the Supreme Court, then you should not vote for that candidate.
So far, these candidates think Kim Davis should remain in jail: Donald Trump, Carly Fiorina, Chris Christie, Lindsey Graham, John Kasich and Hillary Clinton.
These candidates don’t: Gov. Mike Huckabee, Sen. Ted Cruz, Gov. Bobby Jindal and Sen. Rand Paul.
Kim Davis is the litmus test for presidential candidacy.
The candidates who think she should remain in jail will not stand up for your 1st Amendment rights as the Founders intended. This is not at all what America needs right now, especially when, for the first time in our nation’s history, someone was put in jail for being a Christian (What law did she break?).
The candidates who support her will stand up for your 1st Amendment rights as the Founders intended and this is exactly what America needs right now.
Many of you who are not Christians have Christian friends and family members. Is it okay for them to go to jail because they are a Christian? Consider, if you don’t stand with Kim Davis against an out-of-control government bureaucracy, sooner or later, there will be no one left to stand with you.
No one will be immune.
If this is allowed to continue, it’s going to result in Christians being unable to find employment because of being thought of as federal lawbreakers (as if haters isn’t bad enough, already) even though the ruling is completely lawless. It’s already happening. By the way, if you’re a Christian and you’re on the fence about this, you’re already safe. Let that sink in.
From “Kim Davis Is Rosa Parks” by Bryan Fischer (Blog Roll) (Host of Focal Point):
“The Constitution of the United States is utterly silent on the subject of marriage and homosexuality, which means under the 10th Amendment of the Founders’ Constitution the issue is left for the states to decide. And the state of Kentucky decided the issue by elevating protection for man-woman marriage to its state constitution in 2004 with 75% of the vote. Mrs. Davis is just doing the job she took an oath to do, by refusing to issue licenses which, under Kentucky law and the federal Constitution, she has no legal authority to grant.” Read the rest…
Remember those in prison as though you were in prison with them, and those ill-treated as though you too felt their torment. [Hebrews 13:3 NET]

Jon, your article about the import of presidential candidates’ evaluations of Kim Davis in her stand against issuing licenses to same-sex couples, really shook me. I later returned to read the article again. I was shaken by the names of those aspiring to the highest office in the world who approved of her being jailed. What a clear insight into the hearts of candidates!
I wish we all had bumper stickers: “I’M IN — WITH KIM” ! She’s bearing the brunt of wide-spread, cultural, moral disintegration — censures that will hound her long after the cameras are gone, and our cheers for her courageous stand have died down.
Here’s a link to another hero: a 67-year-old Canadian grandmother who’s served 10 years 7 months in jail for her quiet, powerful presence and message outside abortion clinics. What steadfastness of purpose and stand for righteousness — she and Kim, lessons to us all:
Glenn Beck warned ahead of time, that if the court “sanctioned” same-sex “marriage,” churches will be branded, and people’s jobs will come into jeopardy. It will become known to others that so-and-so goes to one of THOSE black-balled churches. The “supremes” ignored out Supreme Creator and wrought their unrighteous work. If Beck’s assessment is valid, look for a serious emptying of some churches over the coming years.
Silence IS abandonment. I’M IN — WITH KIM !!!
Amen and thank you for the article!
Here is an article that you should see. The flip side of the coin is walking free with no repercussions at all. http://www.bet.com/news/national/2012/02/27/lesbian-judge-refuses-to-marry-straight-couples.html?cid=facebook
