Dear Kim Davis: An Open Letter to a Kentucky Hypocrite

Written by Angela Atkinson

Dear Ms. Davis,

gay marriage rightsYou don’t know me, but I know you. So does everyone on the planet right about now, thanks to your clear lack of normal social skills and general decency.

Not to mention the whole “refusing to do your job because it’s against your so-called religion” thing. (Luckily, the state saw your ignorance and got someone else to do your job. I bet that stings a little, huh?)

Now, let me start by saying this: while I disagree with your politics and your blatant lack of respect for other people, I am not usually one to judge anyone.

I mean, who among us is perfect? Certainly not me! Heck, I got divorced at the ripe old age of 23 (after a bad decision led to me being married at 21).

Then, I was a single mom for three years, until I met my now – husband, who I’ve been with for more than 15 years now.

During my first year as a single mom, while I was going through my divorce, I was forced to put my then 1-year-old in daycare.

I chose a church daycare nearby that had a good reputation and in fact was well-equipped for the job.

It wasn’t cheap but it was worth my peace of mind, I thought.

But what I didn’t realize at first was that they’d eventually tell me that not only was I wrong for leaving my emotionally abusive and seriously messed up ex, but it was my duty as a woman to fix that marriage.

Then they systematically tried to force me into it by calling me almost daily to pick up my son for various made up reasons.

Yep. And that is just one of many experiences I’ve had with judgmental so-called religious people.

With all of that being said, I guess this means that you’re not alone – you have plenty of company when it comes to people who use their religion to justify their own small- minded ways (read: unreasonable hate and prejudice against people who are different than they).

Even so, it occurs to me that since you’ve personally been divorced and have a clear record of being a blatant adultress, you don’t have a leg to stand on when it comes to using your “Christian” beliefs. Your own people would say that you’ve broken at least two of their big 10 commandments, not to mention that being gay isn’t on that list.

I guess all this leads me to ask you a few questions.

1. Given the state of our country today and the fact that your beliefs are rooted in hate and ignorance, what do you think you’re going to accomplish by refusing to do your government job, which by the way has nothing to do with your religion?

2. What gives you the right to push your clearly confused beliefs on anyone else?

3. Why hasn’t the state just fired your ass by now? Refusing to do your job is grounds for firing every time, but hey, the religion card got pulled, so the same kinds of PC laws are protecting your right to refuse? I don’t get it.

4. Do you hate yourself as well? If you consider all of the marks against you, according to your Bible, you’re probably going to be joining all the other sinners in hell anyway.

5. I hear you’ve chosen to sit in jail instead of doing your job. How are you enjoying the accommodations? Is it worth it to deny a whole group of (already persecuted people) their rights?

6. Does it bother you that GoFundMe isn’t even going to help you out? 

7. Who the hell do you think you are, anyway???

Narcissists Fool You With False Empathy

Here’s the thing. When we say “narcissists have no empathy,” we don’t necessarily mean that they’re not capable of figuring out what you’re feeling. What we mean is that narcissists don’t FEEL empathy in the same way as most people do. They have no compassion, no remorse and they don’t feel regret – unless they regret a choice they made because it negatively affected them directly.
