Would Kim Davis be in jail if she were Muslim?

By Tom Quiner


Kim Davis’ crime is that she believes in the First Amendment … and she’s a Christian.

The Kentucky clerk refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples because she said it violates her Christian faith.

Liberal elites have no tolerance for such people as Kim Davis. Turn the clock back to last year. Do you remember what New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo, said?

 “Who are they [Republicans]? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”

Interestingly, Muslims are pro life, anti gay, and certainly pro assault rifle (ask Charlie Hedbo). (For the record, Republicans are certainly not anti-gay, although they tend to define marriage traditionally based on the welfare of children that can only be produced by the union of one man and one woman.)

I don’t hear the good governor calling for a ban on Muslims from New York.

Over in Chicago, you’ll recall that Mayor Rahm Emmanuel once said that the job-creating business, Chick-fil-a, wasn’t welcome in the Windy City because…

“They disrespect our fellow neighbors and residents. This would be a bad investment, since it would be empty.”

How do they disrespect Chicagoans? They embrace traditional marriage. When asked if they support the traditional family unit, Chick-fil-a president, Dan Cathy confessed:

“guilty as charged … We are very much supportive of the family – the biblical definition of the family unit ….”

The biblical definition of the family unit.

That’s kind of the same belief Muslims hold, except their scripture is the Koran, and yet the ultra liberal Mayor of Chicago has not called for a ban on Muslims.

One can’t help but scratch their heads with a number of reactions. For one, Republicans and Christians by and large embrace the same pro life, pro family, pro traditional marriage, and pro Second Amendment rights that Democrats used to support until politics made Democrats bend their principles.

And then there is liberals’ strange reaction to Muslims. They give Mohammad worshippers a free pass when they kill and maim in the name of Allah. But then turn right around and smear people who oppose human abortion and gay marriage (like Kim Davis) in the name of Christ, actually suggesting that these peaceful Christians are somehow sub human and unworthy of citizenship where liberals rule.

Even more, they go on Facebook and “slut shame” Ms. Davis for having been married many times, calling her a shameless hypocrite, or worse. One particularly cruel liberal meme screams, “how could someone this ugly get married 4 times?”

Of course, they ignore the fact that her conversion to Christianity apparently came after her multiple marriages.

We’re left with questions.

Why do liberals exercise tolerance toward Muslims, but a particularly vicious intolerance towards Christians?

Why does the liberal’s use of the word “diversity” exclude Christians, but not Muslims?

When liberals talk about “inclusion” in the loftiest terms, why does the term include Muslims, but not Christians?

Why do the Thought Police prowling the Mainstream Media and Facebook only wield the club of Political-Correctness against Christians and not Muslims?

And finally, would Kim Davis be in jail if she were Muslim?

    The gay community would not have targeted Davis, had she been a Muslim. They are too terrified, and, let’s face it. Who would want to be beheaded. These groups target Christians, because they know we would not commit such heinous crimes. As for Cuomo. If he does not repent, his day of reckoning is coming.

      I pray especially for elected Catholic officials to be true to the teachings of their Church.

    The Gays would not have approached Davis, to begin with, had she been a Muslim. The PC machine sees bad as good, and vice versa. Also, they are terrified of the Muslims. Hey, who wants to be beheaded. Lol.They know that Christians would not resort to such heinous crimes as inflicted the Ms. Also, they wouldn’t dare go against the establishment, or shall we say, Political Correctness.

    Tom, these sorts of anti-Christian rhetoric and verbal assaults have certainly been ramping up over the last few years. Anyone who studies the Bible knows that it will only get worse in the coming years. It is truly a sad state of affairs when our so-called political leaders turn their collective backs on their faith in the name of political correctness.

    Excellent excellent arguments. So nice to be out of Chicago where I can get Chic-fil-a anytime.

    • quinersdiner on September 11, 2015 at 2:41 pm

      You crack me up. Come to Des Moines where Chic-fil-a is welcome! [Although I must admit I’m a big fan of the Windy City.]

        I live in Chicago. Sorry. Didn’t like it. 🙂

        Oops. Lived in Chi town. Didn’t like going to the loop. 🙂

        You know, I loved Chicago, too. So much to love, especially comparing “The City That Works” to my current liberal haven of Nashville, which doesn’t work. But we were liberals then (gasp!), and I know now that arguments like Chic-fil-A and Barilla pasta, where personal opinions were first called out as unallowable, were the beginning of the end for me. Politics aside, as a Southerner by birth, it was just too much to have the chicken sandwich waved in my face and then snatched away.
