Via Right Wing Watch:

Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel and Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council introduced Kim Davis at the Values Voter Summit this evening, where the Kentucky county clerk received the Cost of Discipleship Award for prohibiting her office from issuing marriage licenses to gay couples in repeated violation of court orders. “These are times in history that are unlike anything that we had before,” Staver declared. “God birthed Kim Davis, and Joe Davis, and each one of you for this moment in American and world history … [God is] looking for people who love Jesus Christ and who will stand for Him, who will not flinch when their time is called and that person is Kim Davis and Joe Davis. May God raise up more.”

Perkins echoed that sentiment, proclaiming that it is time for Christians who hold public office “to resist the edicts of unelected and virtually unaccountable rulers who issue unjust edicts that conflict with the truth of God.” “Kim Davis should not be an outlier,” Perkins said. “Kim Davis should not be something that surprises America. There should be Kim Davises in every elected office, at every level ,who say ‘No’ to judges who redefine the revealed truth of God.”

Davis’ short acceptance speech which was most probably written by Staver’s Liberty Counsel group closed with this: “I am only one, but we are many.”

Yeah. Just like roaches.
