While introducing a news report today about Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis, who is defying the Supreme Court by refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, “700 Club” host Pat Robertson offered an “I told you so” message to viewers.
Boasting that he and others warned people that the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling would undermine freedom, Robertson lamented that “there will be persecution time and time again against those people who disagree with the prevailing view that sodomy should be the law of the land and should be practiced openly and without any restraints whatsoever.”
Liberty Counsel, the right-wing legal organization that has represented Davis in her unsuccessful legal fight, urged its supporters to back her stand against the “militant homosexuals” seeking to exercise their right to get married:
Pray for Kim Davis! Late last night the Supreme Court denied our emergency appeal to keep Kim out of jail. Even though they can go to any of 137 other clerks, today the militant homosexuals who sued her will be on her front step FORCING her to choose between obeying Scripture or going to jail.
Liberty Counsel radio host Matt Barber praised Davis as a modern-day Rosa Parks:

Bryan Fischer of American Family Radio has similarly compared Davis to Nazi resistors and abolitionists:
I support Kim Davis like I'd support a judge in 1858 who wouldn't authorize the capture of a fugitive slave, "law" or not.— Bryan Fischer (@BryanJFischer) September 1, 2015
I support Kim Davis like I would support a clerk who wouldn't sign a form allowing a box car into Auschwitz, "law" or not.— Bryan Fischer (@BryanJFischer) September 1, 2015
Kim Davis is an American hero. Standing on timeless truth against politically correct tyranny. http://t.co/ZQYyrmO4wg— Bryan Fischer (@BryanJFischer) September 1, 2015
