Kim Davis Out of Jail--Speaks to Crowd

Mike Huckabee told the crowd and the press in Kentucky yesterday, if he could, he would go to jail in Davis' place.

As he and Ted Cruz met with Christians outside the detention center, the judge ordered Davis released from jail.

Davis, a relatively new Christian, had a message for the crowd. And for all of us.


As "Eye of the Tiger" blared over the loud speakers, Mike Huckabee introduced Kim Davis.

Minutes after being released from jail, she told those gathered, "I just want to give God the glory because His people have rallied. And you are a strong people."

She said, "We serve a living God who knows exactly where each and every one of us are at."

Davis encouraged the crowd, and Christians across the country who would hear her on the evening news "Keep pressing on. Don't let down. Because He is here and He is worthy."

Huckabee emphasized her plea, asking, "Who's next? Your pastor, the head of a school? Will you be ready to take the stand even at expense to your self?"

The judge said the rally was not the reason he released her. "The reason," he said, is because "her office is fulfilling its duty" by now issuing same-sex "marriage" licenses.

Davis' lawyer Matt Staver told NBC, "Nothing has been resolved." He said, "We're back to square one."

Staver said, "She told the court Thursday that she can't allow licenses to go out under her name and her authority that authorizes a marriage that collides with her conscience and religious conviction, and Kim has not changed that position."

NBC reports that two other clerks in Kentucky---Casey Davis in Casey County, and Kay Schwartz in Whitley County---are also refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples based on the same religious -freedom argument." (Casey Davis is no relation to Kim Davis.)

The network says "those refusing to issue licenses have not been subject to any legal challenges, so have not been threatened with jail."

At least not yet.

Huckabee said he is not only willing to go to jail himself, but "I'm not willing to spend one day under the tyranny of people that believe they can take our freedom away."

I am reminded of the passion of our Founding Fathers as they escaped the grip of tyranny, defied the king of England and declared their independence from the tyranny.

One of our founders, Patrick Henry, famously reminded his colleagues---and in doing so, reminds us: "When people forget God, tyrants forge their chains."

The clang of the forging hammer upon the chains is serving as an alarm in our times---an awakening, a remembrance is beginning to take place.

In the words of a new Christian, who by her own testimony was once desperately lost, but now is found;

"Keep pressing on. Don't let down. Because He is worthy."

Indeed He is.

This matter will continue as more and more Christians take a stand for righteousness, refusing to bow or bend in their biblical beliefs about marriage and human sexuality.

Be Faithful. Be Strong. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful.

  1. This clerk has a judicial bully over her, just waiting to assault her if she doesn't please him and his wishes, which had nothing to do with her constitutional rights.


    Since when has the court put anyone in jail for refusing to serve someone, when the local laws still say they do not qualify for the service?

    This judicial activist judge has put himself above both the law and the constitutional rights of others and thereby chose tyranny instead. What caused him to do this? I guess it was the homosexual agenda, which inherently has a certain nature about it, something from within, it seems to me, and it's not good for America. It's simply not good at all, not good for anybody. It produces nothing good.

    It seems to me that the best thing she can do now, is stay away from her job, and just don't show up, or face this huge bully head on if she's ready.

    I checked on the internet to see how long someone might stay in jail for contempt of court. What I found was that a man did 14 years for contempt of court.

    How many Christians would like her job now, and have the state rule over their faith?

    This is more insanity and it goes back to the homosexual agenda. NO! People do not have a right to "marry" others of the same sex. It isn't a constitutional right in my opinion. I sincerely believe the majority of the Supreme court got it wrong, very wrong, and we are beginning to see the fruit of it.

    This really should change. I wish Congress would reinstate DOMA or something like it, or pass some kind of law which would fix this situation. Maybe there's a better fix. I don't understand government well at all. I only know all this is wrong.

  2. Huck's idea of serving jail time for her is great. But why stop there? Drug lords could hire people to serve their sentences for minimum wage. In fact, if anyone has enough money to hire a surrogate, the threat of prison could just be a non-factor. Bloody brilliant Huck!

    1. You said, "It seems to me that the best thing she can do now, is stay away from her job, and just don't show up, or face this huge bully head on if she's ready." NO, the best thing Kim can do now is go right back to her office and stop the issuance of marriage licenses to same-sex couples. First, because it is harmful to these individuals and to society AND because there is no state law requiring her to issue these bogus licenses. If she stays away, her whole cause is lost.

  3. Did you see Huckster's people physically blocking Cruz from getting near the stage and sharing in the glory? Whoaa! Huckster wanted that moment to be His.

  4. Biggest blunder since Roe v. Wade, putting all that on all the states, a corrupt thing like that, and call it constitutional. Now everybody is supposed to think such a vile thing is wonderful.

    Absolutely wrong decision. Unconstitutional sin is what it is.
    I guess the understanding in the Roe v. Wade case must have been something like if a husband and wife both owned a laptop together and it happened to be in her car, then she can do whatever she wants to do with it and he can't say anything about it, because it was in her car, like she could pawn it or whatever, even destroy it.

    I wonder how tall 55 million lap top computers would be one on top of another.

    And one more thing, it must have been in their minds that a human life is worth less than a computer or something.

  5. The Roe v. Wade decision opened up for this, another wrong decision, because both of them dishonored marriage. When a woman gets married, her body isn't just hers alone anymore.

  6. What the wrong judges did to their judicial position is simply beyond comprehension. They so dishonored marriage. Do we still need to call them honorable?

  7. Matthew 4:1-11 - Jesus Is Tested in the Wilderness

    5 Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. 6 “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written:

    “‘He will command his angels concerning you,
    and they will lift you up in their hands,
    so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’[c]”

    7 Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’[d]”

    8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 9 “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”

    10 Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’

    Notice the word serve Him only!

  8. Looks like maybe more legal trouble for Kim. They played Eye of the Tiger at her celebration and the band Survivor is NOT happy about that. They are threatening legal action. Their lead person said "I would not grant her the rights to use Charmin!" Best stick with Nugent for these events.

  9. There's an imposing will within the homosexual agenda. I believe it to be inherent with it. It's desire is to impose a belief system that would say that what they call marriage is the same as what marriage really is, and that is what we are seeing happen on a clerk and the people of Kentucky, because the majority of the United States Supreme court went along with the homosexual agenda to impose it's immorality upon others.

    They insist upon it being the same thing in the eyes of everyone and will not stop until that happens. It is a thing of force. That's the nature of it. The agenda is carnal and devilish. It seeks to control, manipulate, and coerce. It's roots are in witchcraft which is a work of the flesh. It's a deceitful work. It's always been deceiving, saying it's not evil when it is, saying it will not do harm, when it does a lot of harm, saying it isn't going any further, but just as Adolf Hitler said he would not march into places, he really wanted to occupy the entire globe if he could. He wanted to rule it all.

    This is the danger of it. It is not the same as marriage. Apples are not oranges, and God made male and female for specific behavioral purposes. He knows how they are to function. He has a divine design in mind and commandments to go along with his perfect will concerning human behavior.

    I wish the majority of the Supreme court would have known this very well and very clearly and would have foreseen the danger and the harm to all Americans.

    It's my prayer that the other two branches of government will fix this once and for all time. DOMA was constitutional. The majority of the Supreme court is wrong on this matter.

  10. I was just reading from Luke 18. I don't know much about praying for avenging, but I'm thinking that maybe I should start praying that God avenge us for some of the evil work some people in the Supreme court and in government have been doing against us and Israel.

  11. So I guess what we are going to see now, is whether or not people are going to harass every Christian who despises homosexuality and what they call marriage, because of somebody's "blessed constitutional right" to call what they do "marriage", thus defending somebody's idea of what the constitution is, or are they really going to defend the constitution and protect the rights of everyone who despises the corruption and filthiness of homosexuality?

    Protect an alleged constitutional right, or protect real constitutional rights? Can our schools and courts do both without partiality or hypocrisy? Not in this Kentucky case it seems to me. It doesn't look like they're doing very well to me.

    So we will see the folly of a divided Supreme court's decision, it's confusion, it's damage to America, it's causing the needless suffering of many, because of a hypocritical majority in that high court of the land.

    May the other 2/3 of government rid us of this nonsense once and for all time, for the godly purposes which are in Christ Jesus, the sustainer of this nation.

  12. I'm thinking that if there is a weakness in our constitution, maybe it's the fact that a divided Supreme court can make a decision like this. I'm thinking, What would happen if they were required to all agree on a decision, and if not, within a certain amount of time, then nothing changes?

    In this case, DOMA would have remained, would it not?

  13. Here is an example of a few people overstepping their authority and having too much power. It's what our constitution was formed to prevent. DOMA should have remained and stayed rock solid. No form of government is any better than the morality of the people within it. This has been said over and over in many ways, by many different people. It is so very true.
