Barton: Kim Davis Should Not Be In Jail Because 'Man's Law Is Not Allowed To Contradict God's Law'

Glenn Beck drove to Houston today to attend the funeral for Deputy Darren Goforth, who was ruthlessly gunned down last week at a local gas station.

Joining Beck on the trip was David Barton and his wife Cheryl and, on the way to the funeral, Beck and Barton had a conversation about the jailing of Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis for preventing her office from issuing marriage licenses to gay couples, and Beck uploaded a video of it to his Facebook page.

While Beck said that he sympathizes with Davis, he cannot understand why she has not been fired for refusing to do her job. Barton, predictably, responded by asserting that Davis is entirely in the right to refuse to allow her office to issue marriage licenses to gay couples because "the Founding Fathers made it real clear that the laws of God are higher than the laws of man."

"This is a law of God. Man's law is not allowed to contradict God's law," Barton said, which means there can be no justification for jailing Davis because she is upholding God's law.
