Christopher Ciccone, AKA Madonna’s gay brother, is known for a couple of things. I mentioned one already … Madonna … and the fact that when their relationship became strained he wrote a tell-all book about her.
Now he’s taking The Gays to task over our collective outrage at that Kentucky Bigot Clerk, Kim Davis:
“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.”
First off, let’s make it clear that Ciccone must have had a ghost writer for his book because this is a badly spelled, grammatically flawed word salad that would make even the Mama Grizzly Bore™ cringe.
But this isn’t about that, it’s about Ciccone saying we, The Gays, are being sore winners because we demand that Kim Davis, an elected official, adhere to the laws of this country and not some history book she apparently found a few years ago but never quite got around to reading or understanding.
Here’s the queer, Christopher: she has a job to do, which is to give marriage licenses to people in Kentucky who are legally entitled to get married and because she chooses to use the Bible as a weapon against the laws makes her unable to do her job,. And since she was court-ordered to do her job and refused to follow suit, she’s in jail; but she hasn’t been jailed for her religious beliefs, but for inflicting her religious beliefs on everyone else.
Why don’t you take a seat Christopher, and don’t speak again until you have something intelligent to add to the conversation; and while you're sitting there, take an English course, and a writing course.
Maybe then you'll be safe from being named the ISBL Asshat of the Week.
