Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who’s been hovering around the middle of the poll pack in his bid for the White House, jumped directly into the jailing of Kim Davis – the Kentucky clerk who refused to grant gay wedding licenses and is now behind bars – and said Americans need to wake up to the “criminalization of Christianity” that’s coursing through the country.
In a tweet, he wrote: “Kim Davis in federal custody removes all doubts about the criminalization of Christianity in this country. We must defend #ReligiousLiberty!”
In several other Twitter messages, he said similarly.
He wrote: “We must defend #ReligiousLiberty & never surrender to judicial tyranny! FreeKimDavisNow.com #ImWithKim #KimDavis.”
And in another: “Exercising #ReligiousLiberty should never be a crime in America.”
