On Thursday, Mat Staver reiterated his claim that the hosts of ABC's The View called for Kentucky clerk Kim Davis to be killed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples.

Davis – who spent 5 days in jail for refusing comply with a federal judge's order – has said that issuing such licenses would violate her conscience.

Staver, the chairman of Liberty Counsel and Davis' lawyer, argued on his Faith and Freedom radio program that Davis, as a Christian, is incapable of hating anyone.

“The hatred is coming from these individuals because of their own internal anger,” Staver told his listeners, “but they can't be transformed by the love of Christ and we can't hate when we have been transformed by the love of Christ. This is what John 15:18 says: 'If the world hates you, you know that it hated me before it hated you.' And that's talking about Jesus Christ, the creator of the universe who died and gave himself. That he experienced a lot of hatred toward him, so much so that they wanted to brutalize him and put him up on a cross.”

“In fact, we've even had people say that we need to be crucified. Even on The View, people on The View were calling her a monster, calling for her to be killed. Even on a national television program,” he added.

Right Wing Watch notes that if the women of The View had called for the killing of a Christian it “would have generated some news coverage.”
