Judicial Tyranny: Why Kim Davis May Not be the Last

Pastor Rick Warren once told me the fight for religious liberty would become the civil rights issue of our generation.

On Thursday Pastor Warren's prophetic words were fulfilled at the hands of the United States Government.

It happened in the Commonwealth of Kentucky where Judge David Bunning ordered U.S. Marshalls to arrest Kim Davis - the clerk of Rowan County, Kentucky.

Mrs. Davis is a devout Christian who refused to issue gay marriage licenses. She claimed that doing so would violate her religious beliefs.

Davis is represented by the public interest law firm Liberty Counsel. The firm’s attorneys asked the court to accommodate her beliefs by simply removing her name from the licenses.

But Judge Bunning refused to do so. He refused to accommodate her religious beliefs -- and ordered U.S. Marshals to take her into custody.

I truly believe Judge Bunning wanted to intimidate Christians and send a very clear message – that resistance to same-sex marriage will not be tolerated -- doing with the gavel what Bull Connor tried to do with dogs and fire hoses.
