But you didn't burn a sacrifice to my invisible talking unicorn, so you lose.

How much more proof do we need that not only can freakazoids not be trusted to do the jobs they have taken an oath and hundreds of thousands of taxpayers dollars to do, but that they are so divorced from reality that we should not let them drive, much less vote?

A sometimes-tearful Kim Davis took the stand Monday to say her decision as Rowan County clerk to refuse marriage licenses to same-sex couples was a heartfelt one based on her religious convictions.
"It was something I had prayed and fasted over. ... It wasn't a spur of the moment decision," Davis told U.S. District Judge David Bunning, her voice breaking.

To authorize licenses means "I'm saying I agree with it, and I can't."

Her choice to also deny licenses to straight couples was because "I didn't want to discriminate against anyone."

Two of those straight couples and two gay couples from Rowan County sued Davis shortly after her office stopped issuing marriage licenses to anyone in the wake of the June 26 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court, which overturned Kentucky's ban on same-sex marriage and declared the practice legal across the country.

Bunning said he probably would issue a decision the week of Aug. 10.
Bunning, by the way, is the son of repug and famously dense former Senator Jim Bunning, who got that judgeship for his son as part of the price he extracted for resigning from the U.S. Senate.*

Don't expect him to rule against a fellow conservatard.

*Mitch McConnell finally got rid of Bunning Sr. in 2010 to clear the way for his pet candidate Trey Grayson, only to watch Grayson humiliated by self-certifier and current presidential candidate Rand Paul.
