FRC Hate Group Helps Kim Davis Snag A Seat To The SOTU To Remind Bigots About The “Administration’s attack on religious liberty”.

Well it looks like Jim Obergefell won’t be the only same-sex marriage guest at President Obama’s State of the Union address tonight. Kim Davis the Kentucky county clerk who rightfully went to jail over her refusal to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples will also be attending thanks to the anti-gay Family Research Council hate group which pulled a few strings and an unnamed Republican member of Congress.

While the [p]resident will be extolling his ‘accomplishments’ of the last seven years, Kim Davis and Mat Staver (who also got invited) will be a visible reminder of the [a]dministration’s attack on religious liberty and an encouragement for people of faith to stand,” the Liberty Counsel wrote in a press release.

For seven years, people of faith have been in the crosshairs of the Obama Administration. The state of religious liberty is dire, but we cannot give up.

Kim and I are encouraging all people of faith to get involved in the political process, to vote for people who support your values, and to never give up. Our ‘one nation under God,’ is worth our continued prayers and active support.

Four and a half years ago, Kim had her life radically transformed by Jesus Christ. As a result of her uncompromising faith, she has gone to jail, met with the Pope, stood with the Governor of Kentucky during his lopsided election win, and is now attending President Obama’s final State of the Union Address. God can and will use anyone who is committed to Him”

A spokeswoman for the Liberty Counsel said it would not say which member of Congress invited Davis. “No, we are not releasing that information. “The focus we want to be on is why Kim is there, and Kim is there because she is standing for the many Americans, who have not benefited under President Obama’s seven years, and specifically had their religious liberty trampled.”

Kim Davis, Staver and the Republican party as a whole is the prime example of how in a nation crippled with gun violence, racial injustices, stagnant wages, environmental degradation, and active domestic terrorism, the religious right thinks our nation’s highest priority is some imbecile actively refusing to do her job.

And they will beat this dead horse until it decomposes into dust.
