What is Totally Unfair About Kim Davis's Treatment
By Paul Bremmer Behind the jailing of Rowan County, Kentucky, clerk Kim Davis for refusing to issue marriage licenses after the Supreme Court created “same-sex marriage” is “a real active, aggressive, anti-Christian sentiment,” contends a scholar who writes on the “gay”-rights movement.
“The issue is not so much what she’s doing, the issue is what she believes,” said Michael Brown, author and talk-radio host. “That’s why the first principle in my book ‘Outlasting the Gay Revolution’ is ‘never compromise your convictions.’ We knew for years this was coming. Here it is; it’s time to take a stand.”
Brown made the comments in a recent appearance on the cable show “America Trends” with Dr. Gina Loudon. As evidence that progressives are vilifying Davis for what she believes, he pointed out Gavin Newsom, as mayor of San Francisco in 2004, disobeyed the law by ordering his subordinates to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Newsom, rather than being jailed and vilified, went on to become California’s lieutenant governor and is now running for governor.
That double standard says a lot about progressives, according to Brown.
"What it tells us is that tolerance is a one-way street," he said. "It’s double-talk. The people calling for tolerance are utterly intolerant. The people talking about being inclusive are totally exclusive. The people talking about diversity mean 'my way or the highway.'"
