It's clear that the latest event that has the religious right all up in arms and in meltdown mode is the jailing of Kim Davis, the Kentucky County Clerk who refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. They are OUTRAGED!
First Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel (who represented Davis in court) very offensively compared Kim Davis to a Jew living in Nazi Germany.
From Right Wing Watch:
Yesterday, Davis’ attorney, Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel, appeared on “Crosstalk” to defend Davis, claiming that she is simply trying to do her job, or at least, her job as she sees it. He even likened her to a Jewish person living under Nazi rule.
When host Jim Schneider of VCY America asked why Davis won’t resign, he said that the county’s residents support her and “she’d probably be able to win the governor’s seat right now rather than just the clerk of Rowan County. She’s there to do a duty, a job and the job duty was changed.”
“Does that mean that if you’re Christian, don’t apply here; if you’re a Jew, you gotta get — what happened in Nazi Germany, what happened there first, they removed the Jews from government public employment, then they stopped patronizing them in their private businesses, then they continued to stigmatize them, then they were the ‘problems,’ then they killed them,” Staver said. “The fact of the matter is, she has a right to this employment and you don’t lose your constitutional liberties just because you are employed by the government.”
Todd Starnes says that soon jails will fill up with (religious right) Christians.
“I warned people of faith that this kind of stuff is coming,” Starnes told “AFA Today” host Crane Durham. “Now we know that it is here and this is a very dangerous and very disturbing development. But quite frankly, you know what, we all knew, Crane, those of us who read our Bibles, we all knew that there was a time coming in this country where the persecution would happen and it seems as though, at least in the case of Mrs. Davis, that time is right now.”
While discussing his interview with Davis, where she said that she wouldn’t resign her position because she plans to use the county office to spread “God’s word” and act as “a vessel God,” Starnes said that Kentucky lawmakers failed to even meet with Davis about legislative remedies for her supposed plight. He added: “I hope that the folks listening to this program in Kentucky will call their state legislators and their representatives right now and demand that they take action to protect other Christians in the state of Kentucky, otherwise I suspect the jails are going to start filling up pretty quickly.”

According to Rick Wiles, the "homosexual gaystapa" will murder Christians like Kim Davis in a "reign of terror."
Kim Davis’ imprisonment is only the beginning of the reign of terror by the Obamanista communist regime’s gaystapo. If I am right about America being Mystery Babylon, eventually the blood of the saints must be spilled in the streets, martyrdom of Christian saints is one of the attributes of Mystery Babylon in the Last Days. When Babylon’s economy collapses, so too will its old constitutional republic framework. What will ensue in the aftermath of a massive economic collapse will be bloody and brutal tyrannical repression of Christianity by the Jesus-hating homosexual gaystapo. Just like the militant homosexuals who terrorized Germany in the 1930s through the Nazis, the National Socialist Party, the Democratic Party is the new National Socialist Party, the Nazis.
The “Trunews” host later added that America may soon face a military attack from China and Russia over its treatment of Davis, along with federal funding towards Planned Parenthood.
As Wiles explained, the U.S. government has effectively turned into Sodom and Gomorrah and will consequently be punished.

Bryan Fischer and a caller agree that "there will be blood and it will be massive."
Matt Barber says that is Kim Davis were to agree to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, it would be the most hateful thing she could do.
From Right Wing Watch:
Staver and Barber discussed Liberty Counsel's representation of Davis, a Kentucky county clerk who has been jailed due to her on-going refusal to allow her office to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, with Barber declaring that if Davis relents and agrees to issue such licenses, it would be "the most hateful thing that she could do."
If Kim Davis were to put her "put her stamp of approval ... on counterfeit gay marriage," Barber said, "that is the least compassionate, most hateful thing that she could do, to issue same-sex marriage licenses to people who are about to entire into a counterfeit and false institution that is rooted in mortal sin, in the sin of homosexual immorality."
Homosexuality is an "abomination," Barber continued, "and if she were to engage in this, she would leading others and supporting others in sin, putting her own self in danger of judgment. She wants a clear conscience before she stands before God."
According to presidential candidate, Mike Huckabee, the government is treating Gitmo detainees better than Kim Davis. From Right Wing Watch
Promoting his Tuesday rally in Kentucky defending county clerk Kim Davis, Mike Huckabee told Fox News that the government has been more accommodating to detainees in Guantanamo Bay than Kim Davis.
If gay people want to receive a marriage license, Huckabee said, then they should wait until Election Day to vote for a new county clerk.
Huckabee isn’t the only one hoisting martyrdom status on Davis.
In yet another column defending the Kentucky clerk, Fox News pundit Todd Starnes said that “perhaps one day, students of history will read not only letters from a Birmingham jail, but letters from a Kentucky jail.” He even likened Judge David Bunning, the Bush-appointee who held Davis in contempt of court, to Bull Connor:
Brian Brown of NOM insists that the "judicial tyranny must stop!"
“Hours ago a federal judge jailed Kentucky clerk Kim Davis in an act of judicial tyranny. Judge David Bunning wants to force her to abandon her Christian principles and personally participate in validating same-sex ‘marriages’ by putting her name on the license. Federal law says that the government must provide a reasonable accommodation for people with deeply held religious beliefs, but this rouge judge is determined to make Kim pay for standing up for principle. This judicial tyranny must end now! Please sign our petition demanding that Kim Davis be freed immediately, and calling on elected officials in Washington and at the state level to enact legislation affording an accommodation for people so that they personally are not required to participate in something that violates their deeply held religious beliefs. The left is already trying to spin this as ‘stopping discrimination’ but the real victims of discrimination are Kim Davis and all of us who, because of the illegitimate ruling of the US Supreme Court in redefining marriage, are being told to sacrifice religious liberty on the altar of gay ‘rights’. – Hate group leader Brian Brown, promoting a “Free Kim Davis” petition that, of course, puts you on NOM’s money beg list.
From Tony Perkins writing for Charisma News:
Ultimately, this is about more than same-sex marriage licenses in Kentucky. It is about the ability of Christians and other religious people to serve in positions of public trust. If this is not resolved in a manner that accommodates the orthodox religious beliefs of Clerk Davis, this will, in effect, establish a reverse religious test barring those who hold biblical views of marriage from positions of public service. Such a religious test by proclamation or practice is wrong.
Now a court is jailing someone over this because the governor failed to act. How hard is it to change a simple form to remove her name from it? Isn't that worth doing to keep someone out of jail because of what they believe? Governor Beshear must call for a special session of the legislature and grant an accommodation to Kim Davis.
If governors and legislators thought this threat to religious freedom would go away, the jailing of Kim Davis proves them wrong. The time to protect and accommodate religious liberty is now.
