Shep Smith slams Christian ‘haters’; compares standing behind clerk to Sharia law

Kim DavisFox News anchor Shepard Smith proved again why he’s not considered by many to be one of the more conservative voices at the network, as he covered the release of Kim Davis.

On Tuesday, when the Rowan County clerk who was jailed for refusing to grant same sex marriage licenses was released from prison to the cheers of a crowd gathered outside, Smith painted them as hypocrites and called it a “religious play.”

“This is the same crowd that says, ‘We don’t want Sharia law, don’t let them tell us what to do, keep their religion out of our lives and out of our government.’ Well, here we go again,” he said.

According to Smith,  Davis wanted a religious accommodation when the issue started, but that’s not what it is about at all.

“You’re hearing now what they want,” he said. “And this what they’re going to get. They’re gonna get a stirred up argument and a couple of days in the news cycle, and they’re going to be able to make these claims.”

Comparing gay marriage to the struggle of interracial couples who want to get married, Smith said “haters are gonna hate.”

    You say that among the reasons for annulment is the inability to consummate the marriage. You say this proves that the ability to consummate is a necessary condition of real marriage. But it is not the inability alone which allows annulment, but when that fact is hidden. “One of them was physically and incurably impotent at the time of the marriage, unless the other spouse knew about the impotence before the marriage.” Not only that, but if you are right, couples with physical injury or anatomical anomalies that prevented “consummation” should not be allowed to marry, paralysis being but one such condition.

      Actually, the inability to have sexual intercourse and it is hidden from the spouse IS by itself a legitimate reason for an annulment. The means to consummate the marriage is unable to be performed. This is quite different when the sexual organs of both people are the same.

        Raymond, the point I made is that the annulment is not based on the inability but hiding it. Hiding it is not a violation of natural law.
