Dick And Liz Cheney To Bigoted Kentucky Clerk: Do Your Damn Job (VIDEO)

As Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis continues to deny marriage licenses to same-sex couples, conservative father-daughter team Dick and Liz Cheney are not impressed.

Dick and Liz Cheney are adored by conservatives, but while conservative “Christians” support Kim Davis’ religious crusade against gay people, the two Cheneys say she should do her damn job.

Earlier this week, Davis ran out of options after the Supreme Court rejected her effort to deny marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Davis, at the urging of the right-wing Liberty Council, has been fighting for the right to discriminate as a public official by claiming that doing her job violates her religious beliefs.

Davis now faces contempt of court charges and could be fined or even sent to jail for refusing to perform her duty as a county clerk.

As we all know, public officials are supposed to serve everyone. And because the First Amendment clearly prohibits the government from endorsing a religion, the court system correctly ruled against Davis trying to use her religion to deny someone else a public service.

And as unbelievable as it may sound, Dick Cheney and his demon spawn Liz Cheney agree.

During an interview on Newsmax, Dick and Liz Cheney both said that Davis needs to obey the law and begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples no matter how she feels about same-sex marriage.

“It’s the law of the land and as a general proposition, it seems to me you’ve got to go forward with it,” Cheney told host Steve Malzberg.

Malzberg tried to suggest that forcing Davis to do her public duty would turn into forcing churches to perform same-sex weddings, but even Liz Cheney couldn’t stomach that insane claim because churches are private institutions protected by the First Amendment while government employees are duty-bound to follow the law, even laws they don’t like.

“As my dad said, it is the law of the land,” Liz Cheney said. “The court has ruled. And she’s not an employee of a church or synagogue, she’s a government employee. So, she has an obligation to uphold the law.”

Despite the surprisingly sane argument by the Cheneys, it’s obvious that Kim Davis intends to continue refusing to do her job while using the Bible as a shield. And the anti-gay Liberty Council is urging her on every step of the way even though as a legal group they should know better.

Bigotry has no place in our government and if Davis has her way, other clerks who believe as she does will start to copy her and the result would be chaotic as same-sex couples file lawsuit after lawsuit against counties that can’t afford to keep wasting taxpayer money just because their public employees want to be bigots. If these bigots refuse to do their jobs, they should resign, be fired, or be jailed (if they refuse a court order). And Liberty Council should be disbanded and any lawyer who worked there should be disbarred. Because clearly, they don’t respect the law or our Constitution.
