Before anything else, can we just talk about Kim Davis and the fact that she met the Pope?
Let’s get some facts straight here:
Kim Davis has a job. Her employer is the Kentucky State Government. Her Company has a certain policy. That policy states that, when 2 people – any 2 people – enter her office and request a marriage license, she has to give it to them.
Kim Davis is religious. That is her right, and she’s not the only person on this planet benefiting of the freedom to practice a belief. Or at least, she is lucky to live in a part of the world where she can.
However, Kim Davis’ religion conflicts with her Company’s Policy. So much, even, that she finds herself unable to perform her job. Rather than stepping down and look for a job that suits her better, she decided to try and fight the Company’s Policy. She lost.
Anyhow. Kim Davis’ religion apparently is an anti-love one. That’s a shame, really. But this isn’t about her religion. This isn’t about pro or con same sex marriage. This is about a person unwilling to perform the tasks assigned to her. If that were you or me, we would get fired from our jobs. If you or I didn’t agree with our company’s policy, view or philosophy – we would not work for that company to begin with.
The fact that this woman got to meet the Pope, and was padded on her back for the alleged battle that she fights, is essentially wrong. She does not deserve to be an example – for any cause.
She is a person who doesn’t do her job – no more, no less.
The way I see it, she has two choices: resign with dignity, and THEN get praise for standing up for her beliefs – or suck it the fuck up, and do the job she is meant to do.
Phew. Glad I got that one of my chest.
Anyhow, the word of today has nothing to do with the above rant. It’s a great word, I’m glad I spotted it. That in itself, must have been a…
Signs! They’re everywhere (pay attention)
