Pop star Madonna’s openly gay brother took to social media this past weekend to express his disgust with the gay lobby for their treatment of Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis. Christopher Ciccone is mostly known to the world as Madonna’s brother, but his recent statements about the American gay community are making big waves.
Ciccone was aghast at the gay community’s seemingly pathological need to pummel their opponents into submission.
“Once again, the gay community feels the need to be sore winners,” Ciccone wrote on Facebook. He simply could not understand how the gay community could be so hypocritical when it comes to following (or not following) the law. He listed the many ways that politicians and government workers have been breaking the law for years without anyone in the gay community caring, then explained that the proper reaction should have been to begin an effort to elect a different county clerk because “that is how a democracy works.”
He then added a great dig at the hypocritical gay lobby:
“Since when are we the arbiter of other peoples faith? … If i’m not mistaken, it’s in the constitution…..something about religious freedom.”
The county clerk in Kentucy deserves about as much support as you would give her if she were a muslim women who insisted on covering her face and refused not only gay marriages licenses, but divorce, accusations of rape and driving a car without ur mans approval…..perspective is everything…..this woman is a civil servant, she is required to follow federal law…..but why should she….when DOJ and other civil authories don’t follow federal law when they choose not to…..i.e. Washington State and Colorado (POT) come to mind…or the abstract notion of “sanctuary cities”…..i always thought that sanctuary was the province of churches…….these things aside….this is why we have elections…..if the folks of this county in Kentucy don’t want her as the county clerk….then don’t have to vote for her…..that is how a democracy works….not to mention the courts….in the mean time…..since when are we the arbiter of other peoples faith?…….can you honestly say that you know how much a person is allowed to have??..if i’m not mistaken, it’s in the constitution…..something about religious freedom or something……selective shaming and bullying corrupts a democracy….freedom of press, speech and religion give it strength. Not to mention reason and the god given compassion we as humans have a right and responsibility to practice. Once again, the gay community feels the need to be sore winners. Is it so difficult to allow this women her religion?…or must we destroy her in order for here to betray her faith. No matter how we judge its truth. The rights we have all fought for, mean nothing, if we deny her hers.
