On Thursday, U.S. District Court Judge David Bunning placed Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis in the custody of U.S. marshals until she complies, USA Today reported. Meanwhile, Davis told Fox News’ Todd Starnes that not only is she ready to go to jail, but that militant gays have issued threats calling for her to be raped and murdered.
“They told my husband they were going to burn us down while we slept in our home,” she told Starnes. “He’s been told that he would be beaten up and tied up and made to watch them rape me. I have been told that gays should kill me.”
Here’s just a sampling of the “tolerance” on Twitter:
Please, someone kill Kim Davis. Its for religious purposes, you know…. 😒

USA Today added:
Before the hearing, more than 100 protesters gathered outside the federal courthouse to bolster both sides of the debate.
Demonstrators lined the street, waving signs either with religious messages or calls for marriage equality. One man stood in the crowd, shouting over a microphone.
“If we want to live like Sodom and Gomorrah, God will punish us like Sodom and Gomorrah,” he said, where in Genesis 19: 23-26 God rained burning sulfur on the land of the two cities destroying all who lived there.
So it’s official. Religious freedom is dead in America. This is exactly what some on the Supreme Court said would happen.
There’ll be much more to this as time goes on. Stay tuned.
