Actor, LGBT activist, and internet celebrity George Takei issued a blistering response to the release of clerk Kim Davis from a Kentucky jail on Tuesday—calling the entire event "a circus." Takei wrote:

"Well this is a bit of a circus. So let us be clear: This woman is no hero to be celebrated. She broke her oath to uphold the Constitution and defied a court order so she could deny government services to couples who are legally entitled to be married. She is entitled to hold her religious beliefs, but not to impose those beliefs on others. If she had denied marriage certificates to an interracial couple, would people cheer her? Would presidential candidates flock to her side? In our society, we obey civil laws, not religious ones. To suggest otherwise is, simply put, entirely un-American."

@TheCobbler,
If she had simply quit her job I could have some respect for her sincerity (but not her beliefs) but not the way it went down.

This seems these days to be the rule rather than the exception.

In Christianity heritage, in the Islamic present. If you insist on insulting religion stick to the one doing the killing.

No, Muslims are teaching Gays how to fly, just not how to land.

@TheCobbler,
The Nazi party was not a Christian movement. That simple.

Deal with Islam, flyboy.

Perhaps. But wasn't the Third Reich Hitler's idea of the 1000 year period mentioned in Revelation 20:3

@coldjoint,
In 1933, prior to the annexation of Austria into Germany, the population of Germany was approximately 67% Protestant and 33% Catholic.[1] A census in May 1939, six years into the Nazi era[2] and incorporating the annexation of mostly Catholic Austria into Germany, indicates that 54% considered themselves Protestant (including non-denominational Christians), 40% Catholic, 3.5% self-identified as "gottgläubig" (lit. "believers in god", often described as predominately creationist and deistic[3]), and 1.5% as non-religious.

Deal with Wikipedia, flyboy ...

The fact Hitler was in power and the majority of people were Christian doesn't mean they had a input to the way the government functioned. Hitler ruled by fiat like the jerk in the WH now.

You cannot use Christian doctrine to rule any modern country and the Nazi state least of all. And Wikipedia has a strong progressive bias.

And remember Christians do not throw gays of buildings.

And, they'd seize the opportunity if they could. Look how the American religious community has used its power to control women's bodies regarding abortion. Their influence is every bit as malign as IS'.

I would say that is the dumbest thing you have ever said, but you are still posting so it won't be for long. In your own country girls are groomed for the sex trade by Muslims and you do nothing about it. And the FGM that goes on in the UK is also religiously motivated and you do nothing about that either. Your weakness makes me ill.

You have no horse in this race. No room to talk. GTFO.

They do? Is that why a Pope resigned? It seems there are reasons other than religious ones.
