為何 Westboro Baptist 教會開始舉行針對 Kim Davis 的遊行?

Members of the infamously anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) arrived in Morehead, Kentucky today to picket the Rowan County courthouse, workplace of Kim Davis, the county clerk and “religious liberty” martyr who rose to fame by refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples citing “God’s authority.”

WBC holds a view of divorce that wasn’t all that uncommon even a generation ago. Divorce is not permissible for church members; though, realistically, it is unavoidable if a spouse files for divorce, a position WBC shares with other conservative congregations. (Additionally, in cases of spousal abuse, separation is encouraged in WBC.) In the WBC perspective, if you are the victim of divorce, then you haven’t committed a sin, though it doesn’t mean you’re permitted to remarry. All remarriage after divorce is a sin, even if the ex-spouse has remarried. If you believe, as WBC does, that God brings a man and woman together to be husband and wife until death, then even a divorce doesn’t interfere with this. Drawing from multiple passages from the Christian Scripture, the church explains:

Of course, Davis is not alone among Christians in her marital choices. She is simply the poster child for WBC’s larger claim that “Christians Caused [Gay] Marriage.”
