On Monday, Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis is scheduled to return to work after having been freed from jail for repeatedly refusing to allow her office to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. Davis has been ordered not to interfere with the issuing of such licenses going forward, but it seems pretty clear that she has no intention of obeying that court order and so lots of media outlets are expected to be on hand to see how she responds if faced with another gay couple seeking a marriage license.

Today, Ray Comfort appeared on Bryan Fischer’s radio program to announce that he intends to take advantage of the anticipated media presence next week to promote his own anti-gay film, “Audacity,” by traveling to Kentucky to hand out books, t-shirts, and copies of the movie while a plane towing a massive banner flies overhead.

The media has not paid much attention to his film, Comfort complained, nor to its message to gays that God will hold them “morally accountable” and send them to Hell for their behavior and so he intends to bring his message directly to the media gathered at the Rowan County clerk’s office.

For Certain Christians, Lying for Jesus is Justified in the Abortion Wars

Leviticus 19:11 makes clear: "Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another."There's quite a bit of the Bible that conservative Christian activists tend to leave out, but Biblical prohibitions against lying are routinely given short shrift by those intent on seeing God's will done on Earth. We don't have to look far for examples of it -- from Christians arguing that LGBT people are predators to politicians pretending that being gay is a choice, these lies are common.The Washington Post has a good look at another popular outlet for faith-based lying: the abortion debate, and the notoriously deceptive idea of "crisis pregnancy centers." Reporter Petula Dvorak examines the work of one Virginia activist, Pat Lohman, in particular.shutterstock_296153609
