Rowan County, Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis, in court this morning to face a motion to hold her in contempt for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples in defiance of the Supreme Court, spoke with FOX News reporter Todd Starnes and said she’s ready to go to the clink.
“I’ve weighed the cost and I’m prepared to go to jail, I sure am. This has never been a gay or lesbian issue for me. This is about upholding the word of God. This is a heaven or hell issue for me and for every other Christian that believes. This is a fight worth fighting.”
Davis tells Starnes that she has received threats:
“They told my husband they were going to burn us down while we slept in our home,” she said. “He’s been told that he would be beaten up and tied up and made to watch them rape me. I have been told that gays should kill me.”
Davis is appearing at a hearing this morning at the Ashland County Courthouse. See photos and video from outside the courthouse HERE.
