Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis and her conservative “Christian” fans may feel like they have achieved some sort of victory, but one Baptist pastor isn’t impressed at all.

Davis is infamous for repeatedly denying marriage licenses to same-sex couples despite same-sex marriage being legal in all 50 states. Her refusal to follow the law landed her in jail. Then bigoted conservative “Christians” like Mike Huckabee flocked to her defense, whining about imaginary persecution while claiming that the Supreme Court has no authority to rule on the constitutionality of laws and declaring that “God’s authority” is higher than the Constitution that doesn’t endorse any specific religion at all.
Davis was released from jail after a few days, when her deputy clerks began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. And now, Davis and her attorneys are vowing to continue fighting even though she has lost at every level of the judicial system.
Rather than persuading Americans to see evangelicals in a positive light, Pastor Russell Williams of McCormick Road Baptist Church in Florida says that Davis and her fans are actually hurting Christianity by committing hypocrisy and acting so vile that it turns people away from religion.
Williams wrote a post on Facebook thoroughly crushing Davis and her persecution complex, becoming one of the few evangelical pastors in a southern state to openly blast the homophobic Kentucky clerk and her anti-gay supporters.
“This is not a case of the government forcing anyone to violate their religious belief,” Williams correctly stated. “She is free to quit her job. If she quits her job to honor God surely God would take care of her.”
He then points out a huge hypocrisy committed by Davis herself: the fact that she has been married four times.
