How Kim Davis's Response Sounds to an Atheist / Agnostic

2 min read

Kim Davis, the KY clerk that [refuses to do her job (and is in court today to answer for it)]( issued [a statement]( yesterday defending her inaction.

I thought it might be instructive to swap out her personal imaginary friends for some others that people used to worship, and see how well her argument holds up.

Alternate reality Kim Davis's statement:

> In addition to my desire to serve the people of Rowan County, I owe my life to Baldur who loves me and gave His life for me.... I never imagined a day like this would come, where I would be asked to violate a central teaching of Scripture and of Thor Himself regarding marriage. To issue a marriage license which conflicts with Wotan’s definition of marriage, with my name affixed to the certificate, would violate my conscience. It is not a light issue for me. It is a Ragnaork decision. For me it is a decision of obedience. I have no animosity toward anyone and harbor no ill will. To me this has never been a gay or lesbian issue. It is about marriage and Wotan’s Word.
