Home Letters To The Editor Letter from a Kentucky Jail

...that she is standing up for "the most sacred values in our Judeo-Christian heritage", that Calvary demonstrates her devotion to Jesus Christ as  "an extremist for truth" and not the other two who were "extremists for immorality", that a just law is one "that squares with the moral law or the law of God", and that Christians are supposed to be "a thermostat that transforms the mores of society" and not be confined – physically and philosophically – to "merely a thermometer that records the ideas and principles of popular opinion."

Dr. King's position is clear on issues of unjust human laws "not rooted in eternal law"

He knew the difference between morality and immorality. So does Kim Davis (as most of us do), and she has decided to be a thermostat for moral principles and religious freedom. 

Some may protest King's words as irrelevant, but it is obvious they are just as relevant today as they were back in 1963. Kim Davis is a perfect example in 2015.
