Out actor George Takei took to Facebook to decry the hero's welcome Kentucky clerk Kim Davis received from supporters after her release from jail.

Davis, the elected clerk of Rowan County, was freed from jail on Tuesday after serving five days for refusing to comply with a federal judge's ruling ordering her to issue marriage licenses to all qualified couples. Davis, an Apostolic Christian, has said that issuing marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples would be a violation of her conscience.

Takei, who is best known for playing Lieutenant Sulu in the original Star Trek, called Davis' release to a throng of supporters and two Republican presidential candidates “a bit of a circus.”

“So let us be clear: This woman is no hero to be celebrated. She broke her oath to uphold the Constitution and defied a court order so she could deny government services to couples who are legally entitled to be married,” Takei wrote.

“She is entitled to hold her religious beliefs, but not to impose those beliefs on others. If she had denied marriage certificates to an interracial couple, would people cheer her? Would presidential candidates flock to her side?”

“In our society, we obey civil laws, not religious ones. To suggest otherwise is, simply put, entirely un-American,” he added.
