#StandWithKim, the Constitution and the Rule of Law

#StandWithKim, the Constitution and the Rule of Law

Please read Ben Shapiro’s article.  He totally nails it.

Some excerpts:

“Her arrest represents tyranny – not because there is no legal authority to arrest, or because freedom of religion trumps rule of law, but because selective use of legal authority is tyranny. And Kim Davis is right to risk jail in defiance of federal lawlessness. God bless her for that bravery.”

“This government has become an immoral force, a club wielded against people of certain political and religious perspectives. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy defied the Constitution of the United States to unilaterally impose his political will on the people of the United States, and he does not sit in jail; instead, the president of the United States shined rainbow lights on the White House to signify his celebration of such a Constitutional perversion. But Kim Davis, who refused to abide by that Constitutional perversion, sits in jail for defying Anthony Kennedy and Barack Obama.”

“Kim Davis sits in jail, but not the president of the United States who has illegally suspended deportations and sanctions against Iran; a former IRS executive who deliberately targeted conservative nonprofit groups; mayors of major cities around the United States who actively defy federal immigration law; a former attorney general of the United States held in contempt by Congress; Washington D.C. clerks who buck court orders to hand out concealed carry permits; and the current leading Democratic Senate candidate in California, who as attorney general refused outright to defend a popularly-passed proposition in favor of traditional marriage, among others.”

“Did Davis Act Immorally? Of course not. Davis’ goal is to stand up against the injustice of the law itself. The fact that the government has transformed rule of law into rule of leftist Democrats means that Davis’ decision to go to jail rather than quitting is actually heroic. She didn’t need to object to handing out same-sex marriage certificates on religious grounds; she could have done so on purely Constitutional, rule of law grounds. Lawless orders should not be followed, and the Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell is lawless in the extreme. The Nuremberg Defense – the idea that superior orders must be followed – was rejected in the Nuremberg Principles.”

Quoting from Martin Luther King’s letter from a Birmingham Jail: “You express a great deal of anxiety over our willingness to break laws. This is certainly a legitimate concern…One may well ask, ‘How can you advocate breaking some laws and obeying others?’ The answer is found in the fact that there are two types of laws: there are just laws, and there are unjust laws. I would agree with St. Augustine that ‘An unjust law is no law at all.’”

“Rule of law is the most fundamental example of just law. The American left has destroyed rule of law; the vestiges of legality they now hide behind are the instruments of despotism. Going to jail to stand up against an arbitrary and lawless government isn’t a badge of shame for Davis; it ought to be a badge of honor. Sadly, many other people of principle will have to stand up against an arbitrary and dictatorial government before a government of laws, not men, is restored.”
