Social Media Insights
Carl Dial’s public Facebook posts are a typical mix of heavy metal, gaming, and various other topics that you would expect to see on a twenty three year old’s timeline. However, a few publicly posted messages give a little further insight into Carl Dial’s mindset. Images sorted newest to oldest.
There is more than a little irony that Carl Dial and his friends mock Anita Sarkeesian (@femfreq) on her tweet addressing connections between violence and toxic ideas… only to see Carl arrested on suspicion of multiple felonies fourteen months later.
In light of the current allegations, it is a little concerning to see Dial’s November 2014 post about his neighbor’s house burning down and his disgusting comment on the firemen’s abilities.
12/16/2015 – Prosecutors have charged Carl Dial with arson, burglary, and a hate crime for the mosque fire. Dial’s appointed attorney has entered a plea of ‘not guilty’. Family members are still in disbelief, citing ‘depression’ and that Carl wanted to ‘end his life’. The family also describes Carl as ‘not political, racist, or even religious’. [CBS2] [Desert Sun]
Kim Davis cites the “authority of God” and claims to be an Apostolic Christian, where followers believe a highly literal interpretation of the Bible as “the inspired and infallible Word of God.” Marriage is “sacred”, reserved exclusively for opposite sex couples, and should be in effect as long as the couple lives. Kim Davis continues to cite her “God’s authority” when denying marriage licences to same-sex couples.
Additional information about Kim Davis’ past was verified in the last days, which spotlights the staggering (and typical) Christian hypocrisy, bigotry, and delusional self-persecution.
The Many Sins of Kim Davis
Since Kim Davis uses a literal interpretation of the Christian Bible as justification for her bigotry and inability to do her job, here is a breakdown of her past sins in relation to her Bible that she and other conservative Christians prefer that you ignore.
Married FOUR Times
There were rumblings about multiple marriages early on and even Snopes posted an article as “Probably True” but it was yanked a week ago for unknown reasons. This week multiple news sites pulled Davis’ marriage licences and posted them online for all to see. Snopes updated their “Do As I Say, Not As I Do” article as “True“.
The sanctity of marriage was just so damn good Kim Davis had to have it FOUR times. The marriage certificates can be viewed here.
Bible Violations = Genesis 2:24, Matthew 5:31, Mark 10:2, Luke 16:18, 1 Corinthians 7:10, Malachi 2:14
I have yet to read a single article where Kim Davis holds a press conference in front of a government building, speaking out about denying hetero-sexual couples the ability to divorce.
Christian harlot Kim Davis had an affair and got pregnant by her THIRD husband while still married to her FIRST husband. When the twins were born, her SECOND husband adopted them before she moved on to husband number FOUR.
Bible Violations = Numbers 20:10, Leviticus 20:10, 21:9, Deuteronomy 22:22, Ezekiel 23:47, Revelations 21:8, 1 Corinthians 6, Matthew 19:9, Galatians 5:20, Ephesians 5:5
Kim is really racking up the sins at this point, but what about a few of the lesser known (to Christians anyway) biblical sins?
