Even Madonna’s Brother Supports Kim Davis

You should know that Ms. Kim Davis is a devout Christian who works as the County Clerk in Rowan County, Kentucky, and was put in jail last week after refusing to issue marriage licenses to homosexual couples.

You should also know that on September 5, 2015, an article titled: “Madonna’s Brother Defends Jailed Clerk Who Refused Marriage Licenses for Gay Couples,” was written by Ryan Gajewski and published on the Hollywood Reporter website.

The article details how Madonna’s brother, Christopher Ciccone – who is openly gay – defends Ms. Kim Davis, explaining how her religious rights should be respected and how she should be allowed to refuse to issue marriage licenses to gay couples.

Mr. Ciccone explains how, in many instances, “sanctuary cities” in America ignore and disregard federal immigration laws.  And even though marijuana continues to be an offense under federal law, states like Washington and Oregon ignore those laws and no one is prosecuted.

Here is the article in its entirety:

Madonna’s Brother Defends Jailed Clerk Who Refused Marriage Licenses for Gay Couples, by Ryan Gajewski

“Once again, the gay community feels the need to be sore winners,” wrote Christopher Ciccone, who himself is openly gay.

Madonna’s brother, Christopher Ciccone, is speaking out in defense of the county clerk in Kentucky who was recently jailed after refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

 Ciccone, who is openly gay, posted a message to Facebook on Friday in which he said that Kim Davis should be granted the right deny the licenses, with Ciccone citing her “religious freedom.”

“The county clerk in [Kentucky] deserves about as much support as you would give her if she were a Muslim [woman] who insisted on covering her face and refused not only gay marriages licenses, but divorce, accusations of rape and driving a car without your man’s approval,” he wrote.

Ciccone acknowledged that Davis is required to follow federal law before he added: “But why should she when DOJ and other civil authorities 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.”

“Once again, the gay community feels the need to be sore winners,” he continued. “Is it so difficult to allow this women her religion? Or must we destroy her in order for her to betray her faith. No matter how we judge, it’s truth. The rights we have all fought for, mean nothing, if we deny her hers.”

Ciccone began his entertainment career as one of Madonna’s backup dancers before moving on to direct music videos for such stars as Dolly Parton.

His full post can be seen below.

The county clerk in Kentucky deserves about as much support as you would give her if she were a muslim women who insisted on covering her face and refused not only gay marriages licenses, but divorce, accusations of rape and driving a car without ur mans approval…..perspective is everything…..this woman is a civil servant, she is required to follow federal law…..but why should she….when DOJ and other civil authories 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…….these things aside….this is why we have elections…..if the folks of this county in Kentucy don’t want her as the county clerk….then don’t have to vote for her…..that is how a democracy works….not to mention the courts.

In the meantime…..since when are we the arbiter of other people’s faith?…….can you honestly say that you know how much a person is allowed to have??..if i’m not mistaken, it’s in the constitution…..something about religious freedom or something……selective shaming and bullying corrupts a democracy….freedom of press, speech and religion give it strength. Not to mention reason and the god given compassion we as humans have a right and responsibility to practice. Once again, the gay community feels the need to be sore winners. Is it so difficult to allow this women her religion?…or must we destroy her in order for here to betray her faith. No matter how we judge its truth. The rights we have all fought for, mean nothing, if we deny her hers.

Ladies and gentlemen, I applaud Madonna’s brother, Mr. Ciccone, who is openly gay, for sharing his views and for defending Ms. Kim Davis and her right to refuse marriage licenses to gay couples because of her religious beliefs.

It is time for every Christian to join our voices and come out in support of this Christian woman who is being martyred.
