A Crisis Of Faith

It may surprise you to know that several of my friends hold very strong Christian beliefs. Why would a devout Christian be friends with somebody like me? I have no idea. But they do and I appreciate it. What probably isn’t going to surprise you is to hear most of my Christian friends are anarchists. For many of them their views of anarchism are directly related to their faith. None of them work for the State because they will not server to masters.

Not all Christians are so devout though. The recent fiasco with the lady from Kentucky who was told to go pound sand by the Supreme Court is still working for the State of Kentucky and still refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples on the grounds of her faith:

MOREHEAD, Ky. — A county clerk in Kentucky who objects to same-sex marriage on religious grounds denied licenses to gay couples on Tuesday, saying she was acting “under God’s authority,” just hours after the Supreme Court refused to support her position.

In a raucous scene in this little town, two same-sex couples walked into the Rowan County Courthouse, trailed by television cameras and chanting protesters on both sides of the issue, only to be turned away by the county clerk, Kim Davis.

Perhaps it’s not my place to say but if your faith says same-sex marriage are a sin and the State commands you to issue a license to same-sex couples you should maybe consider alternative employment. How could somebody who claims to be such a devout Christian continue to work for an organization that commands them to sin? Wouldn’t that be like Jesus taking a job with Satan?

The State is the antithesis of the commandments against murder and theft. Not only does the State commit murder and theft but those are it standard operating procedures! How could a Christian willfully work for an organization entirely dependent on sin? It makes no sense! If this woman really had an issue with the State issuing same-sex marriage licenses she should quit and find some honest work.
