Liberty Counsel: Kim Davis Speaks From Prison on Day 5

Grayson, KY – Liberty Counsel’s Chief Litigation Counsel, Harry Mihet, just visited Kim Davis at the Carter County Detention Center in Grayson, Kentucky. “I had an amazing visit with Kim. She exudes gentleness and is at peace. Her spirits remain high. She was brought to tears when she heard that so many people outside the jail and around the country are praying for her,” said Mihet.

She had been reading her Bible and wanted to share a Scripture with the public from 2 Timothy 1:7-8, which says, “God did not give us the spirit of fear, but of power and love and self-control. Therefore, do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in the suffering for the gospel and the power of God.”

Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel, commented: “Kim Davis has never sought the spotlight. Although some people have said she is a hero and some accuse her of wanting to be a martyr, neither is true. Kim bristles at the thought. She loves God, loves people, and loves her job. She remains faithful to all three and that is why she is here in jail. She may be a prisoner because of her faith, but Kim is freer than most Americans.”

Tomorrow there will be a press conference outside the jail at 2:30 PM, followed by a prayer rally outside at 3:00 PM. The address is Carter County Detention Center, 13 Crossbar Road, Grayson, KY.
