Kentucky Clerk Hold-Out Sent to Jail for Contempt of Court

Dissent is for punks.

There are a couple of ways to look at this. One is the state's way -- that we must absolutely brook no deviation from the law, and make no accommodation for a conscience objector.

Which seems like a strange position to take: Because we routinely make reasonable accommodations for conscience objectors.

In this case, the court could have ordered one of her non-objecting deputies to sign the license.

But we're not looking for ways by which her conscience can be respected, while the citizen's (just made up, nonsense, no-moral-force-behind-it-except-Anthony-Kennedy's-feelings) right to have the license is also respected, are we?

No, as we've seen in these Grievance Tourism cases, we are looking for dissenters whom we can drop the full power of the state upon to compel them to Think the Approved Way, because the gay right to marriage, which was invented five minutes ago, is literally more important than any other right, or God Himself, for that matter.

Yeah they'll get right on that.

We need absolute uniformity in the application of made-up federal law, except, you know, when the liberal political establishment (of both parties) thinks federal law is icky.

AllahPundit asks:

If a Muslim clerk somewhere decides to stop issuing licenses too, is that the criminalization of Islam?

But we're pretty sure no one is going to force that issue, now aren't we?
