The Urban Sombrero has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Default Naaman and Kim Davis
In 2 Kings 5 Naaman, healed of leprosy after Elisha told him to dip in the Jordan seven times, goes to Elisha and professes that he now knows "there is no God in all the world except in Israel." Let's call that conversion. But, Naaman has a problem. He works for the civil authority. And, the fellow he works for goes to the "temple of Rimmon" and bows to worship. This fellow has to lean on Naaman's arm to bow, which causes Naaman to have to bow also. He says to Elisha, "may the LORD forgive your servant for this." Elisha replies, "Go in peace."

Now, Kim Davis, a convert to Christ, works for the civil authority. In allowing same sex marriage, the civil authority "bows to Rimmon" so to speak. The civil authority "leans upon" the arms of clerks and officers to carry out its work. If Naaman was told, in effect, "Do not fret about this," could not Kim Davis issue a license and not think it dishonors her belief and faith?
