Madonna’s gay brother has defended the jailed Kentucky clerk who refused to issue marriage licenses for same-sex couples.
Christopher Ciccone, 54, posted a message to Facebook on Friday saying Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis should be given the right to deny the licenses citing her ‘religious freedom’, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
‘Is it so difficult to allow this women (sic) her religion?…or must we destroy her in order for here (sic) to betray her faith,’ he wrote.
In his Facebook post he said that Davis deserves as much support as one would give her if she was a Muslim woman who refused for example gay marriage licenses and divorce, noting that ‘perspective is everything’.
He then continued by acknowledging she is required to follow federal law but said why should she when the Department of Justice and other civil authorities do not.
‘This woman is a civil servant, she is required to follow federal law…..but why should she….when DOJ and other civil authories (sic) don’t follow federal law when they choose not to…..i.e. Washington State and Colorado (POT) come to mind…or the abstract notion of “sanctuary cities”…..i always thought that sanctuary was the province of churches.’
Ciccone also said that if the county residents do not want her as their county clerk then they should not have voted for her stating through elections, ‘that is how a democracy works’.
He continued by asking ‘since when were we the arbiter of other people’s faith?’
