Dan Savage has said the Kentucky clerk refusing to issue gay marriage licenses is a hypocrite just ‘waiting to cash in.’
During an interview with MSNBC on Tuesday (2 September) night, the openly gay sex columnist compared Rowan County clerk Kim Davis to the Indiana pizzeria that raised more than $1 million after refusing to cater gay weddings.
‘I think Kim Davis is waiting to cash in,’ he said.
‘I predicted from the beginning that she would defy all the court orders, defy the Supreme Court.
‘She would be ultimately be held in contempt of court, lose her job, perhaps go to prison for a short amount of time and then she will have written for her ghost-written books, she will go on the right-wing lecture circuit and she’ll never have to do an honest day’s work ever again in her life.’
Savage also pointed out that Davis had divorced three times and married four times.
‘She is a hypocrite,’ he said.
‘She’s now onto her fourth husband. Jesus Christ himself in scripture condemns divorce, calls it adultery and forbids it.
‘Jesus Christ himself in scripture says not one word about same-sex marriage.’
