Westboro Protests Kim Davis for Being “Proud, Self-Righteous Hypocrite”

— October 19, 2015

The infamous Westboro Baptist Church, of the “God Hates Fags” demonstrations at the funerals of American soldiers fame, has a new target: Kim Davis. Surprisingly, the church is protesting Davis for her refusal to follow the Supreme Court’s decision legalizing same-sex marriage. Westoboro took to Twitter, where it called Davis a “proud, self-righteous hypocrite” and an “adulterer.”

If I were the Devil, I’d be checking my thermostat today. Not only did I find myself agreeing with Ann Coulter as she replied to Raven Symone’s criticism on The View, but now I find myself in agreement with Westboro Baptist Church. Westboro protests Kim Davis for being “proud, self-righteous hypocrite.” Seriously, did Hell freeze over and I not get the memo?

Westboro took to Twitter to announce that the church is unhappy with Kim Davis, the Kentucky County Clerk who refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Davis, according to Westboro, is a “proud, self-righteous hypocrite” and an “adulterer” because she has three divorces and four marriages under her belt. The church, based in Topeka, Kansas, is planning its protest in front of Davis’ home.

The church’s official stance, again from Twitter, is that, “That man that Kim Davis is living with, and calling her husband, IS NOT! Her husband is Dwain Wallace, who she married when she was 18-years-old. It was adultery at the beginning, adultery in the middle and it is indeed adultery today!”

davisWestboro has never been a fan of LGBTQ people but, apparently, they are even less crazy about haughty Christians who shouldn’t be throwing stones. The “God Hates Fags” church, which often protested the funeral services of American servicemen and servicewomen, actually told Davis to shut up and do her job! Color me surprised!

They want her to honor the SCOTUS’ June decision making same-sex marriage legal and told her that God, “does not require YOU to disobey to deal with this nation,” in reference to her refusal to issue same-sex marriage licenses.

Davis, never one to take responsibility for her own problems, blames Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear for her legal difficulties. She’s even sued him over the issue. The governor sent a memo to his state’s 120 county clerks after the SCOTUS decision telling them to begin issuing same-sex marriage licenses. Davis’ brilliant argument? Beshear’s directive forced her into her civil disobedience and subsequent jail time for contempt of court.

Um, what? I’m surprised she’s not suing President Obama and the former presidents responsible for appointing the current Supreme Court justices, or the Senators who voted to confirm them, for that matter. Gov. Beshear has twice asked for dismissal of Davis’ ridiculous suit.

So, there you have it. I have sided with Ann Coulter and Westboro Baptist Church, all in the same day. I’m going to see if UPS will deliver this parka to Hell. Poor Satan must be freezing!
