Kim Davis is getting a lot of support from conservative Christians, but Madonna‘s openly gay brother has come out defending her.
Christopher Ciccone posted about Davis on Facebook this weekend, and according to The Hollywood Reporter, said she deserves as much support as 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 said that the feds pick and choose which laws to follow, citing marijuana in two states and “the abstract notion of sanctuary cities” before making this point:
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 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.
So let’s just get this straight: we are living in a world where, for refusing to give marriage licenses to gay couples, Kim Davis is being supported by Madonna’s openly gay brother and being condemned by the incredibly homophobic Westboro Baptist Church.
