THIS IS IMPORTANT 

~MUSLIM~

A Muslim, sometimes spelled Moslem, relates to a person who follows the religion of Islam, a monotheistic and Abrahamic religion based on the Quran. Muslims consider the Quran to be the verbatim word of God as revealed to the Islamic prophet Muhammad. They also follow the teachings and practices of Muhammad as recorded in traditional accounts called hadith. “Muslim” is an Arabic word meaning “one who submits (to God)”.

~BUDDHIST~

A person who followed Buddhism. This is a nontheistic religion or philosophy that encompasses a variety of traditions, beliefs and spiritual practices largely based on teachings attributed to Gautama Buddha, commonly known as the Buddha (“the awakened one“). According to Buddhist tradition, the Buddha lived and taught in the northeastern part of the Indian subcontinent sometime between the 6th and 4th centuries BC.

~SIKH~

A Sikh is a follower of Sikhism, a monotheistic dharma which originated during the 15th century in the Punjab region of South Asia. The term “Sikh” has its origin in the Sanskrit words for disciple, student or instruction. A Sikh, according to Article I of the Sikh Rehat Maryada (the Sikh code of conduct), is “any human being who faithfully believes in One Immortal Being; ten Gurus, from Guru Nanak to Guru Gobind Singh; Guru Granth Sahib; the teachings of the ten Gurus and the baptism bequeathed by the tenth Guru”.

~HINDU~

Hindu has historically been used as a geographical, cultural or religious identifier for people indigenous to the Indian subcontinent. In contemporary use, Hindu refers to anyone who regards himself or herself as culturally, ethnically or religiously adhering with aspects of Hinduism.

The historical meaning of the term Hindu has evolved with time. Starting with the Persian and Greek references to India in the 1st millennium BC through the texts of the medieval era, the term Hindu implied a geographic, ethnic or cultural identifier for people living in Indian subcontinent around or beyond Sindhu river.

~CHRISTIAN~

A Christian is a person who adheres to Christianity, an Abrahamic, monotheistic religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. “Christian” derives from the Koine Greek word Christós, a translation of the Biblical Hebrew term mashiach.

There are diverse interpretations of Christianity which sometimes conflict. However, “Whatever else they might disagree about, Christians are at least united in believing that Jesus has a unique significance”.

~TERRORIST~

A terrorist is a person who engages in terrorism. In its broadest sense, terrorism is any act designed to cause terror. In a narrower sense, terrorism can be understood to feature a political objective. The word terrorism is politically loaded and emotionally charged.

CLERK CONTINUES TO REFUSE CIVIL MARRIAGE LICENSES

It was a beautiful day, June 26, 2015, when SCOTUS confirmed marriage equality nationwide.

On that day, it became “the law of the land“.

It was a momentous win which had entailed plenty of work from individuals, organizations, grassroots.

This day confirmed the equality of love.

“LOVE IS LOVE”

#LoveWins#LawOfTheLand

#BeOnTheRightSideOfHistory

These and many other hashtags and phrases where coined that day.

Many memes were circulated online.

Yet, we all knew that this would only be the beginning. Remember the baker, remember the florists, remember the conservative politicians?

WHAT DO YOU CALL SOMEONE WHO REFUSES TO FOLLOW THE LAW?

Religious zealot, stubborn mule, fanatic, hypocrite, criminal

I’m a strong believer that everyone is entitled to their own beliefs, opinions and thoughts. Yet, at the same time, no one should impose any of these on others.

This is the kind of divisive talk that keeps this society so polarized.

This talk and these actions are dangerous.

Rather than living in peace, discord, threats, inequality, discrimination and violence ensues.

This clerk has taken it upon herself to disobey the “law of the land”.

She gone to several courts stating that she only obeys and recognizes “God’s authority”.

Come to find out that she’s been married four times! Where’s the sanctity of marriage here? I don’t judge her four failed marriages.

I’m sure those seeking licenses from her don’t either.

Excuse you me, but if this isn’t plain and simple hypocrisy, what is?

Kentucky Clerk Denies Same-Sex Marriage Licenses, Defying Court

MOREHEAD, KENTUCKY

A county clerk in Kentucky who objects to same-sex marriage on religious grounds denied licenses to gay couples on Tuesday, September 1, 2015, saying she was acting “under God’s authority,” just hours after the Supreme Court refused to support her position.

In a raucous scene in this little town, two same-sex couples walked into the Rowan County Courthouse, trailed by television cameras and chanting protesters on both sides of the issue, only to be turned away by the county clerk, Kim Davis.

As one couple, David Ermold and David Moore, tried to engage her in an argument, Ms. Davis said several times that her office would not issue any marriage licenses.

“Under whose authority?” Mr. Ermold asked.

“Under God’s authority,” she replied.

Ms. Davis, who took office in January, said later in the day in a statement released by her lawyers that she had received death threats, but that she would neither resign nor relent.

“To issue a marriage license which conflicts with God’s definition of marriage, with my name affixed to the certificate, would violate my conscience,” she said. “

It is not a light issue for me. It is a Heaven or Hell decision. For me it is a decision of obedience.

I have no animosity toward anyone and harbor no ill will. To me this has never been a gay or lesbian issue.

It is about marriage and God’s word.”
