I mostly agree with you. She's a bigot who belongs in jail for as long as she refuses to follow the law or until she loses her job.
Her moral values as a government employee before and after 2011 were what I was referencing.
That is not the same thing as being a hypocrite, which (I think) involves pretense - not moral turpitude.

However, now her "bearing false witness" in failing to perform her lawful duties regarding
homosexual applicants for a marriage license might be considered the actions of a hypocrite.

America was founded on a fundamental principle - one never imposes their religious beliefs on anyone else - ever. Anything less is anti-American.

If she cannot do her job without imposing her religion on others, then she had no business remaining in that job. I find her actions little different than banning blacks the right to vote or denying others the right to work because they might be socialists - Joe McCarthy hate. Those actions also occurred with contempt for American principles.

She is not a good persion. She deserves to be in jail. That is not even debateable - if one remembers principles upon which this country was founded.

BTW, she also ignored clear and simple court orders - and the law - without one good reason. No one ever has the right to impose their religion on anyone else. Court orders and the law are more reasons why she obviously is not a good American. Has simply imposed beliefs similar to what underpinned the KKK - hate. One should have respect for people like that.

Nuh-huh, From their writings we know that a few of the rebels leaders were not favorable to any religious beliefs, but most of the people favored their own religion, and feared being oppressed buy a bigger, stronger group with a different religion, like in Europe. In order to get the far flung population centers to join the revolution, the rabble rousers had to assure everyone that wouldn't happen, that the nation wouldn't impose a one size fits all religion.

However, in each state, and sometimes more than one population center within a state, the people of the majority religion oppressed, and often drove out, anyone of another faith. They even passed laws prohibiting those minorities from government and even some commerce.

So the fundamental principle was, you can fuck with others, but the feds won't let anyone fuck with you.
But she's just a cunt.

The Judge "dismissed" the Contempt of Court charge against Ms Davis,
and she has been released from jail.

The Judge's stated reasoning was that "her" Assistant County Clerks were,
in fact, now issuing marriage licenses.

The oddest aspect of this is how Davis' supporters are so happy and are celebrating her release.
... as if it were some kind of victory... NOT

The next issue is what happens when she returns to her job.
She still has the option to again stop the issuing of marriage licenses,
and the Judge still has the option of again jailing her on Contempt of Court,
... but this time it might be a more severe judgement.
