Amon Amarth’s Johan Hegg Thinks People Like Kim Davis Should “Go Live In A Cave”


Amon Amarth frontman Johan Hegg has shared his thoughts in part on the controversy around Kim Davis, a Kentucky clerk who refused to issue marriage certificates to same-sex couples, citing her religious beliefs. Hegg said via Facebook:

“Regarding some recent events here are a couple of thoughts.

It’s ok to have whatever superstitious belief you wish, but you have no right to break the law because of it.

If your job or a job you are applying for dictates that you perform a duty that goes against your “religious belief” feel free to hand in your resignation, or feel free to NOT apply for that particular job in the first place.

Your beliefs does not entitle you to oppress or disrespect women. Not even if they are stupid enough to hold the same ridiculous beliefs as you do.

A religious congregation is a business. They should pay taxes just like everybody else.

If your moral code comes from a book written by some desert dwelling, goat herding nomads between 1400 and 2000 years ago, you have no authority on what is acceptable in the 21st century. Go live in a cave somewhere.”
