EXCLUSIVE: KIM DAVIS’ FIRST INTERVIEW BEHIND BARS

imageROWAN COUNTY, Kentucky (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – In her first interview since being put  behind bars for defying the Supreme Court ruling ordering her to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis answered questions posed by The Adobo Chronicles®. (She made it very clear that she was granting us the interview “under God’s auhority.”)

Without much ado, we’re printing the full Q&A, unedited:

AChron: Do you still believe that marriage is only between a man and a woman?

Davis: Most definitely.

AChron: Do you believe that your God and ours is a loving God?

Davis: For sure.

AChron: Do you believe that God created all men and women to live in this world on equal footing?

Davis: Yes, but only straight men and women.

AChron: Do you believe in God’s commandment to “love thy neighbor as thyself?”

Davis : It’s God’s law, so yes.

AChron: Do you believe in the 7th commandment, “Thou shalt not commit adultery?”

Davis: Again, it’s God’s law, so yes.

Achron: Do you believe in the 10th commandment, “Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife (or husband) ?

Davis: This interview is so over. Have a good day!

PHILIPPINE CATHOLIC BISHOP: ‘GAYS CAN BECOME SAINTS, BUT NOT CORRUPT POLITICIANS’

CEBU CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles® )  – A ranking Catholic bishop in the Philippines issued a challenge to gay men and women to aspire to be holy and to become saints.

The challenge was posed by Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Socrates Villegas during a convention on family and life by Catholic leaders in the country. Villegas is the president of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP).

“That first thing we should call to mind is Jesus died for all. At the cross, there were only seven words attributed to Jesus, and at the cross, He did not ask ‘Are you a homosexual? If you are, I’m not dying for you. No. There was no such thing,” he said.

Asked by a reporter if philandering and corrupt public officials — which abound in the Philippines — could also become saints, Villegas answered:

“Well, that’s a different case altogether. These politicians who cheat on their wives and steal money from the people are committing a grave sin not only to themselves but to many people who suffer as a result of the misdeeds. And that would disqualify them from sainthood.”

Villegas urged corrupt politicians to repent, reform their lives and to return every single centavo that they stole from taxpayers. “That, he said, is the only way for them to become holy and qualify for sainthood.”

MIAMI, Florida (The Adobo Chronicles) – In a recent television interview with anchor Jorge Ramos Ávalos, Florida Republican Senator and declared presidential candidate Marco Rubio answered a series of questions about same-sex marriage.

Ávalos is a Mexican-American journalist and author based in Miami.  He anchors the Univision news television program, Noticiero Univision.

During the interview, Rubio was asked whether he would attend a gay wedding if invited by someone close to  him.  The Christian senator responded that despite his opposition to same-sex marriage, he would attend a gay wedding if invited by someone he loves.

Well, just days after the interview, Rubio got the surprise of his Christian life.  Dozens of wedding invitations arrived in his mailbox at his Florida residence, all of which were from his relatives and very close friends who were gay or lesbian.  He admitted that he had no clue whatsoever that some of his beloved relatives and friends were gay. A few of the invitations came from his own campaign staff.

But as a respectable politician that stays true to his word, Rubio told The Adobo Chronicles that he would be attending each and every gay wedding he was invited to.

The senator may have gained some points there. Que bueno!
