I think Kim Davis should issue the marriage certificates (since that is the law of the land, even if we disagree with the disgraceful way it was imposed) or resign because she morally opposes doing so, but that the government will go the step of holding her in contempt over this and jailing her is far more morally offensive. And you can be sure what is next are civil suits, because you will be made to think and act the way they want you to act.
The rule of law is dead -- unless you're a conservative, in which case it applies in full force. Selective rule of law is called tyranny.— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) September 3, 2015
Cecil is that you?
Instapundit: Kim Davis is a Democrat (something the lamestream media conveniently ignores) but so what, she is a Christian opposing the state over an issue of faith and you know how that historically turns out...meanwhile Clinton and her aides get a pass and Obama selectively enforces laws. Rules of Civility only flow one way. Democrats are free to ignore any law they disagree with (without consequence)

The Federalist: Breaking the law is only okay when progressives do it
Instapundit: Focus your attacks Hugh and Donald: Worst. President. Ever, Hillary is weird, How to fill Supreme Court vacancies, Larry McMurtry was right, the media needs to show its bias
TOM: The privileged of the oppressed
Rush Limbaugh: Obama created the Syrian crisis and Lady of the Left gloats on Gay Marriage
Weirddave at AoSHQ is getting into the Rule of Law thing: I better bring back this post.
The Federalist, as usual, is spot on
TOM: Is Gamergate Sarah Nyberg trolling for underaged girls?
Red State: A nation of men, not laws
NRO: What about clerks who won't issue conceal carry permits?
Instapundit: Eugene Volokh gives a good analysis on when accommodations will be made on faith, WaPo compares Kim Davis to George Wallace (well they both were Democrats), I agree with Ed Driscoll, the Rule of Law message will soon be forgotten by the Left (they are all about the ends, they care less about the means)
