To get thrown in jail for your religious beliefs is a powerful statement. It shows you're serious about your convictions and you're not afraid to stand behind what you believe.But does it make you right?National attention has been focused on Rowan County, Ky., where clerk Kim Davis spent five days in jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. She's been heralded by those who share her beliefs and criticized by those who say she's not doing her job.I say we're trudging down rocky terrain if we allow a clerk to sidestep her government duties because of religion.
