Kim Davis’ lawyer: Give us money or the United States will be destroyed

The law firm that represented Kim Davis is claiming that the United States might be destroyed unless you give them money.

Evangelical law firm the Liberty Counsel rose to national prominence after providing free legal representation to embattled Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, when she refused to carry out her duties because of same-sex marriage.

The group has more recently been secretly helping Republican lawmakers draft anti-LGBT legislation in a number of states, leading to a wave of anti-LGBT ‘conscience’ bills and ‘bathroom laws’ that exploit transgender issues as an excuse to strip back anti-discrimination protections.

In an email to supporters of Liberty Counsel Action today, LC head Mat Staver warned about the impending collapse of the United States unless he can raise enough money to overturn gay equality and cement religious freedom.

Mr Staver wrote: “We have exposed the dangerous lies of the Obama agenda, especially as it has impacted life, faith, and family. This work has been vital in keeping the flame of liberty burning in our land!

“We are entering the most important season of all in this battle for the very heart and soul of our nation and the rights of people of faith to stand in our culture.

“In the coming months, we could witness a rollback of President Obama’s radical initiatives OR a decisive defeat of life, family, and religious liberties.

“If we fail to reverse course and restore liberty, our nation will not long survive!”

It continues: “But, in order for us to turn back the tide against years and years of anti-faith, anti-family government oppression, we are going to have to push harder and work harder than ever before.

“But right now, I’m facing an urgent crisis that threatens all of our our goals and dreams for restoring life, liberty, and family. As of this morning, Liberty Counsel Action is more than $50,000 below our budgeted goal for this year, with just two weeks left before the end of the year.

“We simply must raise these funds to keep our team in our nation’s capital moving forward on what may be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to roll back the Obama agenda and restore liberty.”
