Kim Davis Is Standing for the Rights of All

As religious liberties champion, Kim Davis, was released from a Kentucky jail yesterday, American Pastors Network  leaders say the fight for religious freedom is not over, and that Davis’ stance is for the benefit of all—not just one.

“This First Amendment battle for Kim Davis is about much more than her position as a county clerk in Kentucky,” said APN President Sam Rohrer. “What she is doing is for every American, not related only to her, but she is fighting a cause for all of us.”

Rohrer added that appreciation should be shown for presidential hopefuls Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz, who stood at a rally yesterday in defense of Davis, as well as for the religious freedoms of every American.

“Today I was proud to stand with Kim Davis as she was released from Jail. Kim Davis should have never been locked-up for being a Christian and for following her conscience and the law,” Huckabee said in a statement yesterday afternoon. “I am appalled at our government’s willingness to accommodate the religious beliefs of all religions, but Christianity. Kim Davis sitting behind bars in an orange jumpsuit for six days leaves no doubt about the criminalization of Christianity in America. I refuse to sit silently as our Constitution is torched and the courts violate our fundamental rights. We did not fight a revolution against the tyranny of one unelected monarch so we could surrender our freedoms and abandon our Constitution to be tyranny of five unaccountable, unelected lawyers.”

“The intent of some is to disqualify the presence of Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz as grandstanding,” Rohrer added, “but the truth is that these two have championed religious freedom for their entire careers, and Ted Cruz’s father, Rafael Cruz, has been a longtime defender of these liberties.

“There are crucial state sovereignty issues at stake,” he continued. “This is a matter of moral truth, and what does the First Amendment apply to if not to the fight of Kim Davis?”

Rohrer will be a speaker alongside Rafael Cruz at the “Stand in the Gap for Truth” Rally in Nashville, Tenn., on Sept. 17, hosted by the Tennessee Pastors Network, a chapter of APN. For more on the upcoming rally, visit

    We are missionaries in Africa watching these events closely and have fervently prayed for Kim Davis. We pray for the Pastors Network which is expanding into other States and we pray for our brother Sam Rohrer as he represents our Christian Faith. Our fear is seeing an Independent running against a nominated Republican candidate which will split the vote and the greater percentage will go to a Democrat candidate. Working together for the harvest and our Christian freedom. Lester and Peggy


    Without question this is the issue and this is the battleground for us all. I pray and thank God for Kim Davis and for those who are standing with her to encourage her. This is the place where a red line must be drawn and Ms. Davis had the courage to draw it. But this is not only a legal/moral issue, it is a spiritual one and we are in a spiritual battle. Our weapons are more than sufficient if we use them.

    In Support of Kim Davis
    We share Kim’s hurt and difficulty in these days. Many women do noble things but Kim surpasses them all (Prov. 31:29). At the same time, we are encouraged to support one another. By the way, we have been thinking some way to end this type of reckless harrassments and lawsuits as below:
    Push for dual-path registration similar to US citizenship registration either by birth right or naturalization (foreign born). They are equal but separate process. Marriage license issued for opposite gender while LBGT certificate for same gender registration since they are so proud and haughty about their status. This is the time to separate out and add one more category on standard government forms such as, ( )single, ( )married, ( ) head of household, ( ) LBGT. So, We drive on the slow right lane while some free will choose to drive on speedy left lane. That’s fine. We should not be tail gated, harassed, or cut off in the front to cause any wreck.
    Tare weeds always among the wheat. Settle this once and forever!!
