Buzzfeed has reported the letter IS a fake. I’d feel like an idiot except I assumed it was fake and Christian supporters didn’t even notice the really bad misquote and voiced their support blindly. Good job!
The Twitter account has since been removed. Actually, no. It’s been redirected to a page supporting Hillary’s campaign for 2016. Though I am a Sanders supporter, the trolling is awesome!
Please let this be real (it’s not). Please don’t let this be an awesome attempt at trolling the notorious Kim Davis (it was). A letter has started making the rounds on the Internet that is said to be written by Davis from her jail cell. Sounds a little too much like a reference to Martin Luther King Jr.’s letters doesn’t it? In fact, the tweet it appears in uses the hashtag #MLKim which is downright sickening. Even worse, it compares her to Rosa Parks (except spelled Rose Parks). Here’s the tweet.

Here’s why I’m asking if it’s satire or a great troll trolling us all. Davis refers to two passages from the Bible. She first refers to Isaiah 41:10: “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Sounds totally legit, and yes, it checks out. But the second passage she quotes from the Bible is incorrect. In fact, it’s totally extremely BADLY incorrect. Like, it’s so incorrect that I have a hard time believing this is real. She writes: “I ask that you read the passage from Luke 16:18 and think of me, ‘Consider it all joy, my brethren when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.'” However, that’s not the right passage. This passage is from James 1:2. So what is Luke 16:18? Here it is. “Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery, and the man who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.” OMG? Seriously? Please let this be real. Please. It can be my birthday present and Christmas present. I’m going to assume it’s fake. Considering she’s been married four times and conceived children by husband #3 while she was still with husband #2, this is way too good to be true. So, I’m going to assume it is fake. However, how many Christian supporters know it’s fake? Apparently, several don’t.
@kimdavis917 I praise God you know this. I was worried about you…Now I am not. LOVE YOU!!!
