Scoot over Kim Davis and make room for another hater. Casey County, Kentucky clerk Casey Davis — who is not related to the charming Kim — recently appeared on The Tom Roten Morning Show to discuss his aggressively antigay stance on marriage equality, going so far as to say he’d happily die fighting against the Supreme Court’s ruling, reports Right Wing Watch.
Railing against Gov. Steve Beshear for respecting the Supreme Court’s decision, Davis said:
“I think that’s a travesty to think that just because he don’t see it this way or his opinion is to let same-sex marriage go and it’s all right that us as Christians, we as Christians just don’t have rights anymore? That’s wrong, sir. That’s not right… It’s a war on Christianity. There is a travesty taking place with that Supreme Court ruling was completely unconstitutional, completely unconstitutional. They have no right to tell us, the state of Kentucky, that our law that was voted with what was 70 percent of the people that it was wrong, they had no right.”
Then Davis started to become even less coherent:
“Our law says ‘one man and one woman’ and that is what I held my hand up and took an oath to and that is what I expected. If it takes it, I will go to jail over — if it takes my life, I will die for because I believe I owe that to the people that fought so I can have the freedom that I have, I owe that to them today, and you do, we all do. They fought and died so we could have this freedom and I’m going to fight and die for my kids and your kids can keep it.”
