Televangelist Pat Robertson came to Kim Davis' defense Thursday by saying that gay rights activists want all opponents of gay rights jailed.

Davis, the elected clerk of Rowan County, Kentucky, was jailed Thursday for refusing to comply with a judge's ruling ordering her to issue marriage licenses to all qualified couples.

Davis argues that issuing licenses to gay and lesbian couples would be a violation of her religious beliefs.

On Thursday's 700 Club, Robertson claimed that judicial decisions are not laws and therefore Davis was not obligated to follow the Supreme Court's June ruling striking down gay marriage bans in all 50 states.

“The Constitution says the supreme law of the land is the Constitution, duly ratified treaties and laws passed by the Congress and signed into law by the president. That’s the law,” Robertson told his viewers. “Judicial decisions do not constitute the law. You’re not obligated to do that.”

“So this whole thing is – putting her in jail and so forth – is nonsense.”

“But it will happen and it’s just the beginning. It’s the warm-up of this battle. And I want you to know right now, you've heard it here, the gays do not just want to be recognized. They do not want to be accepted. They do not want to have just freedom. They want everybody to agree with them and everybody who doesn't agree with them and does not comport with their way of thinking, they want to be punished, put in jail, or fined. That’s the way they want it and you might as well get used to it,” he added.
