Huckabee on Kim Davis: ‘I Am Willing To Go to Jail in Her Place’

‘I’m tired of watching people being just harassed because they believe something of their faith’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:

UNKNOWN REPORTER: “The judge told her she cannot interfere with the process of handing out these licenses. What do you advise her T do when she returns to work tomorrow?”

HUCKABEE: “That's a legal question for her. I have already told her that if somebody needs to go to jail I am willing to go in her place. I mean that because I'm tired of watching people being just harassed because they believe something of their faith. And we cannot penalize the Christian faith or anybody's faith in this country. And I'm praying that there will be remedies that do not involve putting someone in jail for their convictions. Especially when the issue is whether the courts can just make a law out of thin air and then somehow try to apply it and punish people for not obeying something that isn’t even a law.”
