Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who refused to allow her office to issue marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples, said this week that she was “obeying [her] law.”

Davis became a Christian celebrity refusing to obey the Supreme Court's June 2015 ruling that found that gay couples have a constitutional right to marry.

Appearing on the latest episode of Truths That Transform from D. James Kennedy Ministries, Davis told Frank Wright, the organization's president, that issuing such licenses violated the Bible and that those who were demanding that she do her job were trying to shove the court's ruling down her throat and make her eat it for dinner.

“I was obeying my law,” Davis said. “I had couples bring in the whole Supreme Court ruling and I said, 'You know, I really don't need to see this because that's not a law, that's a ruling.' [And they'd say,] 'Well, why won't you do this?' And so then I go to the Bible and I'd tell them, [and they'd respond,] 'Don't be reading me the Bible.' Well, you asked why I couldn't issue you a marriage license and I'm explaining to you. I'm showing you why I cannot. They didn't want to hear that though. They wanted to shove that paper down my throat and make me eat it for my dinner.”

While serving a brief stint in jail for refusing to comply with a federal judge's order on issuing the licenses, a deputy clerk began issuing the licenses, altered to remove Davis' name.
