Fun with memes.

I'm not sure how I feel about Kim Davis, but here's my rebuttal to the too-cute-by-half "did their jobs" meme.

Unfair comparison? Sure, Godwin's and all that. But can we at least agree that there comes a point where you cannot leave your conscience with your timecard when you punch in?

If our sensibilities are going to be entirely utilitarian in these uncertain days of the Republic, then we will only be hastening its end. Careful what you bay for.

A side note: what's interesting is that the "do your job" folks overlap a lot with the people who call her a c--t or laugh at the thought of her being raped in prison. One of the things that really poisoned me about social media.

It's been an illuminating summer.
