    Don't get me wrong, I understand and totally agree with her stand, and I know we are to obey God rather than men, but aren't we also told to "render unto Caesar?"
    The context of "obeying God rather than men" had to do with preaching the gospel, not to do with getting a job in some Roman gladiator stadium then refusing to do one's job because it required doing something that promoted ungodliness. And if some Christian stadium worker found himself in the situation where the Roman authorities suddenly decided to use that stadium for gladiator games then I'm sure he would go find employment elsewhere. Or - at the very least - only work on days when the gladiator games weren't held. Or similar.

    I like this from Dr. Brown:

    That is a legitimate debate, and it is one that is sure to continue.

    But what cannot be debated is that the national outrage against Kim Davis has nothing to do with her refusing to obey the law and everything to do with her Christian beliefs. Had she found herself on the opposite end of the conflict and had she stood for "gay rights," refusing to obey a law that she felt discriminated against them, she would be praised from coast to coast.

    Yesterday I tweeted, "It's interesting that gay activists who praised SF mayor Gavin Newsom for illegally issuing marriage licenses now vilify Kim Davis."

    Hector Alvarez (@eltoritolociito) responded, "@DrMichaelLBrown how is it interesting? He was for marriage equality, she was an anti gay bigot who wasnt doing her job."

    Doesn't that say it all?

    Yeah, emotionalism and activism placed above law and order. It's the kind of stuff that can potentially lead to anything if allowed to take charge.

    If I were an American I might be tempted to try to debate that or maybe I would decline even so. But I don't think that what happened was based on emotionalism.

    This is another one that made me rethink..

    I still think she need to resign and find another job, but it points out the inequity with Christians.
