I don’ watch beauty pageants; I am not that gay, and by that I mean I am not that kind of gay. But if I did watch them, I might be cheering Hannah Roberts, Miss Mississippi, this morning.
See, Roberts, a biochemistry graduate from the University of Southern Mississippi, set fire to social media the other night when, during the Q&A, she was asked this question:
“Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis was jailed for defying the Supreme Court’s order to issue same-sex marriage licenses. She claims the order violates her religious freedom. Does it?”
Roberts was given twenty seconds to answer but said her piece with time to spare:
“It absolutely does not violate her religious freedom. That is her job that she was voted into doing, and that law is a federal law throughout the rest of the country. So, yes, she did violate the law there. Thank you.”
No, Hannah Roberts, thank you.
