Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who became a Religious Right hero last year when she tried to stop issuing marriage licenses in the wake of the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision, told an American Family Radio host that she was chosen by God to fight gay marriage.
On Friday, American Family Radio host and American Family Association official Sandy Rios broadcast an interview that she had conducted with Davis, in which she lavished praise on Davis for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. “It’s interesting to me how God chose you,” Rios said. “Not a Sunday school teacher, not a Republican, not the standard — this is like God, this is so like God, so he chose you.”
Davis said that she considered it “a joy to be chosen, to make a stand and to defend my God’s word, the infallible word of God.”
“You were chosen, Kim,” Rios agreed. “I know that. God picked you, plucked you out.”
