Absurdity arises when anything goes

I love my computerDespite the latest lawsuit, Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who was jailed for refusing to issue homosexual "marriage" licenses, continues to stand strong on her religious beliefs.

To avoid jailing of other county clerks, Kentucky changed its law so that the clerks' names will not appear on marriage licenses. And that has satisfied Davis, a committed Christian. But Mat Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel, tells OneNewsNow the problem she now faces just does not compute.

"Kim Davis is still standing strong on the issue of marriage, and certainly on this most recent lawsuit against her, she has no intention of giving a marriage license to a man who wants to marry his laptop computer," Staver details.

He adds that this lawsuit underscores the absurdity and the problems stemming from the legalization of same-gender marriage. 

"When you say that gender no longer matters in a gender-specific relationship such as marriage, then anything goes," he reasons. "It becomes a free-for-all; marriage becomes a mockery, and that, I think, is one of the aspects of this particular case -- marriage becomes a mockery. But we're going to see more of that ridiculous kind of notion, and really, at the end of the day, all this is an assault on marriage itself."

Liberty Counsel reports that the lawsuit was filed by Mark Sevier, a graduate of Vanderbilt Law School whose law license was suspended five years ago for filing similar suits in Texas and Florida.
