Lawton Online: Christian clerk, Muslim flight attendant & more

Andrew LawtonRebel Commentator

In this Lawton Online, I talk about the Christian clerk not doing her job and the Muslim flight attendant not doing hers PLUS:

I tackle the tilt towards political correctness of James Bond, then I call out a false accusation of sexism via LinkedIn that is dragging a British lawyer's name through the mud.

I know several Christian ministers who have had themselves de-gazetted and now do not perform legal wedding ceremonies. Their church members must have secular marriage performed, then have a religious ceremony at the church. This avoids possible law suits demanding they marry people ineligible to marry according to scripture. I think this a realistic approach in view of current social conditions.

Andrew I don’t think that you portrayed the Kim Davis story accurately. The Supreme Court passed down a ruling, which is not law yet until Congress ratifies it. So she was not breaking a law. And rather than Davis violating the Constitution, it has been her rights that have been violated according to The 14th Amendment. (You need to read what the dissenting judges on the Supreme Court warned about this very thing happening – citizens being thrown in jail for holding to their belief in the traditional definition of marriage.) As to you saying that she is the only one defying this ‘law’, you haven’t done your homework on that one either. According to NBC, their are other county clerks not issuing licenses. Also, you mentioned Mike Huchabee supporting her. I think that it would have been fair to mention the other presidential candidates who have stood up for her: Cruz, Rubio, Paul, Santorium, and Jindal. She is really not as alone as you have tried to make her out. Finally, I know that you were emotionally moved by the two men who finally got their license. Were you as equally moved by the video of them demanding the license from Davis???

Andrew seriously?! Your attempting to say that the Clerk not giving the marriage registration was the one ‘holding the gun’. The Clerk got thrown in jail. Sure fire her or get someone else to complete the marriage registration. But she got thrown in jail by the power of the state and under the threat of a gun.

The airline should fire anyone who refuses to do the job required by them. It was her who is using the religion as a reason for not doing what is required. I also am apathetic about gay marriage. Truth is they can’t create children and can play happy families all they like. The Clerk also should do her job or be terminated.
