Milbank, Pitts, Fulwider, Dawkins--Sane Voices, Dawkins's Eloquent on Kim Davis's Lust for Power
Supporters of Kim Davis have no knowledge at all about how their Southern ancestors were denied legal marriage by the established British church. They are repeating the determination to control others that drove their ancestors to rebel. People don't like having their freedom curtailed. The Presbyterians and Baptists and Quakers and Lutherans (even before there were Methodists) in the colonies did not like having the Anglicans control marriage. Kim Davis does not want religious freedom. She wants to control religion even when it means violating the law, and the Republican presidential candidates who support her are as lawless as she is. At last sane voices are being raised. I have looked at a lot of my family history where people were persecuted for their religion, and I am terrified to see that zeal to control awakening again.
