Kim Davis's marriage to her former husband is an "abomination before the Lord."

As everyone knows by now, Kim Davis is refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Rowan County, Kentucky.

It is also well known that she has been married four times and divorced three times, thereby breaking two of Jesus's commandments.

If a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery. Mark 10:12

Whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery. Matthew 5:32

But there is another fact that isn't as well known: Kim Davis's current husband is one of her former husbands, which means that her current marriage is an "abomination before the Lord."
When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house. And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man's wife. And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife; Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before the Lord: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which the Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance. Deuteronomy 24:1-4

The Bible says nothing about same-sex marriage.* But it clearly says that Kim Davis's current marriage is an abomination to God. Maybe she should rescind her own marriage license, rather than refuse to give them to others.

* It just says that sex between males is an abomination.** I wonder which abomination is worse to the god of the Bible? Kim Davis's marriage or sex between males?
**And that Bible-believers should kill men who have sex with men. (Rather than just refuse to give them marriage licenses.)

O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!
I knew you'd be all over this one, Steve. I have been following it closely, and waiting for your comments. Many thanks for your tremendous expertise.

The schadenfreude is strong with this one... I'm having a hard time deciding whether Kim Davis or Josh Duggar sets the low bar for bible thumpers.

Actually, the Bible is pretty clear on what should happen to people who commit adultery:

“If a man commits adultery with the wife of his neighbor, both the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death." Leviticus 20:10.

And that folks that divorce and get remarried are committing adultery:

"And I say to you: whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery.”

"And he said to them, “Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her, and if she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.”

SO, if you are going to impose your Christian morals on others while doing your paid government job, why didn't she deny marriage licenses to divorced folks who were getting remarried (such as herself)? And save them from being put to death?

And if you want to get really technical, there are no clear verses concerning lesbians or if it is a sin like male homosexuality.

The Roman critics of Christianity knew the Jesus cult appealed to the low info masses, that the gospels were largely fabrications, and that Christianity was ultimately treasonous. Catch up on what the Romans knew here:

But, she keeps saying all that was before she was born again, so it doesn't count.
