She didn’t Run For ‘Preacher’

on

BY KAREN WEBB

Was that on the ballot?

County Clerk Kim Davis is claiming that she was elected to preach the gospel and if she resigns or retires then she will have no voice for God’s word. If she resigns she can no longer witness.

Let me get this right – in Rowan County, KY, they pay $80,000 a year to candidates elected to preach the gospel?

It isn’t a gay and lesbian issue – it is a civil rights, an equal rights issue. It is about doing what you were elected to and unless the ballot said “preacher,” then she needs to find a pulpit somewhere else.

“This is a heaven or hell issue for me and for every other Christian that believes,” she said.

I need to see the scripture where it reads that Christians are going to hell if gay people get married, and since I have read the entire Bible and I even had Old and New Testament courses at a Baptist college I must have missed that part even though I got “A’s.”

There is no scripture that says Mike Huckabee or Kim Davis will go to hell if gays get married. Even if you believe it is a sin, then the gay couple may go to hell, but no one else.

“I would have to either make a decision to stand or I would have to buckle down and leave,” Davis said. “If I left, resigned or chose to retire, I would have no voice for God’s word.”

I worked for a suburb of Houston in 1964-65 and I didn’t think anyone should drink, but I still had to issue liquor licenses. I also had to issue building permits for churches that I thought were sending people straight to hell for not preaching the correct interpretation.

She either does what her job description is or she quits. If she were a bar owner or bartender and got saved, she would quit.
