Pat Robertson praised Kentucky clerk Kim Davis today on the “700 Club,” and claimed that people who believe in God and stand for their beliefs will go to jail (video below).
Robertson was referring to the six days of jail time that Davis spent for contempt of court -- not her personal religious beliefs -- when she chose to defy an order from a federal judge to obey the law regarding marriage licenses, notes RightWingWatch.org.
Christianity, the founding principle of this nation, is criminalized. You go to jail if you believe in God and stand fast for your beliefs against the onslaught of secular humanism and the flood that comes about with it.
It's not a pretty picture, ladies and gentlemen, Kim Davis is not exactly the champion that we’d all want to stand up for our beliefs, but nevertheless she did it and she’s the heroine of the piece, but there will be many, many others. And the idea that you have to go to jail, just is appalling.
The federal judge who released Davis on Monday said that she must not interfere with her deputy clerks issuing same-sex marriage licenses.
Mat Staver, Davis' lawyer, wouldn't say what Davis will do when she returns to work, but stated, "You’ll find out in the near future," notes The Guardian.
Mike Wynn of The Courier-Journal tweeted today: "Deputy Clerk Brian Mason says he will issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples even if #KimDavis tells him not to when she returns."
