    Westboro Baptist Church to picket Kim Davis’ office

    The Westboro Baptist Church plans on visiting the home of Kim Davis on Monday. Davis is the Kentucky clerk who spent six days in jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. The church says she is a “proud, self-righteous hypocrite” and an “adulterer.”

    The church and Kim Davis both stand against gay marriage.

    A portion of the church’s press release states:

    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-tears-old. It does not matter how many years you pile on! It was adultery at the beginning, adultery in the middle and it is indeed adultery today!

    The church is known for protesting funerals and other notable events, its members holding signs with inflammatory inscriptions such as “God hates ****.”

    Davis’ critics zero in on her personal life, wondering how she can take a stand against same-sex marriage when she’s been married four times, including twice to the same man. They argue it’s hard to make a case that you’re standing up for the sanctity of marriage after three divorces.

    For Davis, the answer is simple. That was before she became an Apostolic Christian — a branch of the faith that follows a strict moral code. She says she’s a different person now. She had a religious conversion Davis became a Christian 4½ years ago and attends Solid Rock Apostolic Church in Moorhead, Kentucky. It’s that obedience, she said, that prevents her from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

    A federal judge ordered Davis to jail in September over her refusal to issue marriage licenses with her name on them to same-sex couples in her county. Before being ordered to jail, Davis also refused to allow clerks in her office to issue licenses. She cited her biblical opposition to same-sex marriage.

    Davis spent six days in jail for contempt of federal court. Since her release, Davis has allowed the licenses to be issued, but only with her name and title removed. Each license includes a statement saying it is issued “pursuant to a court order.”

    The ACLU has filed a motion in federal court claiming Davis’ actions are interfering with the licenses in defiance of a federal order, possibly making them invalid.

    The Westboro Baptist church tweets:

    “Lord willing, we will visit Kim Davis on Monday with some friendly, Christianly advice/wisdom”

    I understand the logic behind the adulterer accusation. But, I'm curious to know what WBC thinks she should have done when she was born again in 2011. Should she have returned to her first husband from whom she was divorced in 1994 and isn't father to any of her children? I don't even know if that guy is still alive or whether he's remarried. And I think by 2011, she'd already remarried her second husband, who had adopted her kids. So, then do they think she should have divorced him to go back to that first husband? Seems like WBC's way of being holy would end up hurting even more people.
