    He didn't file it, his team did. So he's in the clear. Once again I don't feel that they have a legal leg to stand on. Davis was told in August (I believe) to issue marriage licenses to all or else. She decided not to. Therefore, she is in contempt of court. Pretty simple really.

    So is he pouting about the Supreme Court or is he for real? I really can't tell. IMO

    His reasoning (and I use the term loosely) is that of a petulant child.

    Sigh, religion and its loopholes. I was raised that keeping the Sabbath holy included not causing others to work on the Sabbath, either. So for us there was no shopping on Sunday, no gas stations, no restaurants, etc.

    What a <unusual person>!!!!

    Such an abuse of his position. Really hard to grasp that someone would go to such lengths to try and make a point. IMO

    How many of those that believe in keeping the Sabbath holy go out to eat after church on Sunday? I know of plenty. I know of some that have told their employers they can't/won't work on Sundays because it is "against God's word" then those same ones go out to eat, go shopping, go to the movies, etc. Double standard. As long as THEY aren't working on Sunday they are in the clear. They don't have time for the souls of those that have no choice but to work on Sundays. Apparently this lawyer is either not a Christian that practices keeping the Sabbath holy or his team aren't. Perhaps Davis should have told her lawyer to not make sinners out of his team, to wait until Tuesday to file the appeal instead. But then that means an even longer stay in jail and contrary to what she claims I get the feeling that she wants out ASAP.

    Would this be judicial misconduct?

    Welcome to the theocracy.

    She has freedom of religion. Just not in her place of work. That is how it should be. IMO

    Okay, so if I understand this correctly one can be implicit in someone's sin of not keeping holy the Sabbath but one can NOT be implicit in someone's sinful marriage. Makes perfect sense, especially the part where their idea of God and sinning doesn't apply anyway. That leaves them free to pick and choose.

    You took the words out of my mouth! Thank you!

    No one is saying that she can't believe what she believes. However, she can not break the law and then use religion to get away with it. And since he is of the gay community is he including himself in that "sore winners" comment?

    My wife stopped for gas on the way home from church today. What a hypocrite.

    It makes perfect sense to the ones that feel that God's word is too restrictive. They search for those loopholes. But let a nonChristian person that is still a good human being do something they don't agree with, then it's verse after verse of how that nonChristian person is doomed for hell. Double standards. But hey, they have the Lord (their God) on their side!

    Is there a reason why she couldn't get gas on Saturday? In cases of an emergency it is one thing and understandable. But if a person won't work on Sunday because of keeping the Sabbath holy that then goes out and does something that makes another person work on Sunday, yes I'd say that is being a hypocrite.

    And! Since when is the sore winningness limited to the gay community? A lot of straight people are being sore winners too.

    Just to re-cap, no one called your wife anything, except you.

    She doesn't work on Sundays, but doesn't tell others what to do. I don't find that being a hypocrite. I thought a hypocrite was someone that told others what not to do & did it themselves. Your definition may be different than mine. that's okay. JMO

    As Flourish was so kind to point out, the one calling your wife a hypocrite was in fact you. Yes, I understand that it was sarcasm however in none of my posts on the subject of working/not working on the Sabbath did I call anyone a hypocrite until I responded to a post where you called your wife one. So maybe our definitions are not so different after all.

    MOO
