Kim Davis: Marriage Laws Change!

Kim Davis would rather go to jail than issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. She has nothing against gays, she hastens to assure us. It’s just that marriage is supposed to be certain way. You know: excluding gays.

She seems to think marriage laws can never change. That society never changes.

Kim Davis: It’s time you learned — times change!

Kim Davis: Marriage Laws Change!

The Bible says a man can buy a wife – just name a price! (Genesis 29:18-21)
Some men can have a bunch of wives! (For them, that must be nice.) (1 Kings 11:3)
You want a wife? Just rape a pretty virgin, and she’s yours! (Deuteronomy 22:28-29)
Or heck, just go and grab her. Collect ’em fighting wars! (Judges 21:20-24)
The Bible lists some awful ways that marriage was arranged;
Kim Davis, aren’t you grateful that the marriage laws have changed?

Inter-racial marriages were banned not long ago.
One couple, different colors? The public said, “Hell no!”
“Everybody” knew ’twas wrong to marry black and white!
It took ’til ’sixty-seven for the Court to set it right.
“It’s sinful and unnatural!” the public screamed, deranged.
Kim Davis, don’t you think ’twas fair the marriage law was changed?

Again, the law banned marriage to a faithful loving pair;
Again, it took the Court to set it right and make it fair;
Why shouldn’t gay folks marry whom they want to, just like you?
News flash! To all Kim Davises: Gays are people, too!
Believe gay marriage sinful – but though you find it strange,
Kim Davis, you are not “The Law!” Face it, laws can change!

’Twas Kims of old who cried the Earth did NOT go ’round the Sun;
And Kims who upheld slavery. (God’s will was being done.)
And Kims who fought ’gainst women’s rights. (A woman just obeys.)
And Kims who surely shrieked to us we shouldn’t leave the caves!
The Kims resist all progress. They want things kept the same.
Kim Davis, take a look around! It’s time to learn: Times change.

Kim Davis, do your job and issue licenses, or quit.
Stop claiming it’s against you’re faith. We’re really sick of it.
We have a Constitution. We’re equal: Straight and gay.
We all can marry equally, despite what you might say.
Be bigoted in private! Your public job’s the same.
Kim Davis, stop disgracing us! You heap upon us shame.
