Kim Davis Wants to Become a Preacher After Losing Re-election Bid

The former Kentucky clerk who refused to issue same-sex marriage license wants to get into the preaching game, according to her lawyer, Mat Staver.

Kim Davis lost her re-election bid for Rowan County Clerk after gaining national attention for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Kentucky.

According to her lawyer, Mat Staver (below, at right), the founder and chairman of the anti-LGBTQ Liberty Counsel, she already has her post-political life figured out.

Staver appeared on the Christian radio show Crosstalk to discuss the midterm results with host Jim Schneider, and dropped the news that Davis is looking to get into the preaching game.

“Frankly, what I think she’s going to do, and where she’s been wanting to go, is into some form of ministry. I think that’s where the Lord is leading her at this time,” he said.

“Kim did not campaign, interestingly. Kim just focused on doing her job. She ran a very unconventional campaign,” he said, claiming she wasn’t interested in running for office, just in doing the work.

He also claimed the man who beat her, Democrat Elwood Caudill Jr., doesn’t “have a clue about how to run the clerk’s office.”

Staver and Schneider also spoke about the wave of LGBTQ candidates who won during the midterms, downplaying it as proof Democrats only care about identity.

Staver also worried that now that the House is in Democratic control, it will mean the party will roll out the Equality Act, which he called “misnamed.” If passed, it would provide federal civil rights protections to the LGBTQ community.

“It is taping the mouths of individuals and forcing a radical LGBT agenda onto the American public,” he claimed.

“They’re going to use flowery, nice sounding language, like the Equality Act, but that’s really what it is. And that’s going to be something we’re going to have to be prepared for, because that is coming. We’re going to have to stop it in the House, and if it passes in the House we’re going to have to make sure that the Republicans in the Senate don’t fall for this ploy.”
