Kim Davis To Speak At Anti-Gay ‘Family Values’ Conference

Published

on

Kim Davis will join fellow right wing religious liberty “victims” of same-sex marriage at the Family Research Council’s annual conference this weekend.

Capping off a week spent giving interviews to ABC and Fox News, Kim Davis on Friday evening will deliver a speech as she accepts an award for being a religious liberty role model.

Davis, the Rowan County clerk who refuses to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, will receive the Family Research Council‘s Cost of Discipleship award at this weekend’s Values Voter Summit.

Also participating at that award ceremony will be Casey Davis, Kim Davis’ fellow Kentucky county clerk who has taken the same stand, and Aaron and Melissa Klein, who are falsely listed as “Former Owners, Sweet Cakes Bakery.” They still own Sweet Cakes, and it very much is still in business.

MSNBC Contributor and Chairman of the very anti-gay American Conservative Union (ACU), Matt Schlapp, will also be present at the award event, along with Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Lt. Col. Oliver North, USMC (Ret.), and others. 

In a perfect example of just how deified Kim Davis has become, the previous recipient of the Cost of Discipleship award is Mariam Ibraheem, the Sudanese woman who was sentenced to death for her Christian faith. She later gave birth while shackled in jail, but ultimately was released.

We are pleased to announce that Kim Davis, the Kentucky County Clerk who was jailed after declining to issue a same-sex…

Watch: Texas Attorney General Suggests Arming Teachers After 15 Shot and Killed at Elementary School

Published

on

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton called for arming teachers and “doing more at the school” to prevent school mass shootings, immediately after14 elementary school students and one teacher were shot and killed in Uvalde, Texas.

Paxton, who is in a tight re-election primary runoff race, was speaking to a Newsmax host who noted that Texas is “not a stranger to shootings.”

“Yes, sadly, this has happened again, and it’s a horrible tragedy,” Paxton said, after being asked what efforts have been talked about or taken to prevent school shootings.

“Having one point of entry, making it more difficult for people even to get in that point of entry, and having, potentially, teachers and other administrators who have gone through training and who are armed because first responders typically can’t get there in time to prevent a shooting. This is just not possible unless you have a police officer on every campus, which for a lot of these schools is almost impossible. So I think you’re gonna have to do more at the school because it typically involves very short periods of time and you have to have people trained on campus to react.”

The host talked about hardening schools “so they’re not easy prey for crazy people who go nuts with firearms.”

Defending his call for people to be armed Paxton went on to say people who are “not following murder laws” are “not going to follow gun laws.”
