@NextToKimDavis Twitter Account is Keeping Us Sane Right Now
The biggest story and top trend today is clearly Kim Davis, a county clerk in Kentucky who is defying the Supreme Court by refusing to grant same-sex marriage licenses or allow her deputies to do so, despite being put in jail for contempt of court.
While marriage equality supporters reasonably point out that religious freedom does not give you the right to force your religion on others, stop doing the government job you were elected to do and then break the law by disobeying a court order, Republican presidential candidates like Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz have jumped on a crusade against “judicial tyranny” and are now trooping on down to Kentucky to turn Davis into a religious martyr.
