Comparing Kim Davis to Rosa Parks fails
Kim Davis, Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr. all fought for what they believed in. So how is Davis’ situation different? Parks engaged in civil disobedience just as Davis did.
Parks wouldn’t remove herself from a seat, and Davis wouldn’t sign a marriage license for a gay couple. The situation isn’t the same, but they acted for what they believed in to retaliate against the system.
The difference is, Parks was actually the victim. She was the one being discriminated against. Davis is the one using her public position to discriminate. Davis is not the victim.
Davis is a hero for all of us Christians who feel like this country is abandoning our God.
