Is the King James Bible an authoritative factual source?

People believe what they choose to believe. Most have an attitude of "Don't confuse me with the facts; my mind is made up." I am constantly amazed at the folks who quote bible verses as an authoritative factual source.

One web page article that I have read starts out with "The fascinating story of how we got the Bible in its present form actually starts thousands of years ago ..." Read that entire article web page by following the embedded link contained within its title as follows, English Bible History

Inquiring minds want to learn more. Okay, then, follow the embedded link that will take you on over to the National Geographic web page King James Bible.

For further information regarding the King James Bible, I suggest you read another web page article that also has an embedded link contained within its title: Story Behind King James Bible, Ken Curtis, Ph.D.

Yet some more may be read over at A Brief History of the King James Bible, By Dr. Laurence M. Vance.

In conclusion, I place a link below for you to read a very interesting article from Newsweek:
The Bible: So Misunderstood It's a Sin

God, Country, Same Sex Marriage, Mike Huckabee, and Kim Davis.

"After five nights in jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, Kim Davis, a Kentucky county clerk, walked free Tuesday to a roar of cheers from thousands of supporters ... She walked onstage to thunderous applause, the song “Eye of the Tiger” playing on loudspeakers, her hands held aloft by one of her lawyers, Mathew D. Staver, and Mike Huckabee, a Republican presidential candidate and former Arkansas governor."
ref: ALAN BLINDER and RICHARD PÉREZ-PEÑA, Kim Davis, Free From Kentucky Jail, Won’t Say if She Will Keep Defying Court, The New York Times, September 8, 2015.

Brian Maxson, a friend of mine on Facebook, stated
"the FACT that HER "pushing her beliefs" not only violated the judge's order and put her in jail in the first place, SCOTUS ruling supercedes the state laws."OBERGEFELL v. HODGES" 2-b in the ruling states:(b) The Fourteenth Amendment requires a State to license a marriage between two people of the same sex. Pp. 10–27.

What would happen if Kim Davis' religious beliefs required her to be a vegan? Would that affect the performance of her duties as Clerk?

Did The Founders of the United States of America intend our country to be a Christian republic?
Myth: The Founders intended the U.S. to be a Christian republic.
Fact: If the Founders had wanted a Christian republic, they would have made one.
Summary: If the Founders had intended this to be a Christian Republic, they would not have separated Church and State in the constitution. Besides, many of the founders were Deists or atheists, not Christians; it would have been impossible for them to intend a Christian Republic.
Read more about that over at its web page on the website Liberalism Resurgent, Steve Kangas, editor.

FACT: Kim Davis is not being discriminated against because of her religious convictions.
FACT: Kim Davis is a public servant, an elected government official sworn to uphold the laws of the United States of America.
Fact: Kim Davis is refusing to perform the duties of her job.
Fact: Kim Davis is in contempt of Court.

I cannot help but wonder ...

Well, regardless of legalities, regardless of the Constitution, regardless of equal rights under the law, there is a horde of people who support Kim Davis. Is there a good response to those people who wish to quote Bible to impose their beliefs on others? Well, WATCH AND LISTEN:
