Every once in awhile, far right commentators become remarkably candid. Here is David Brody from CBN on what the whole endgame is with the Kim Davis martyrdom:
“Look, can we get real for a moment? Liberals, if she ends up back in jail, do you really think that’s a victory for you? Hardly. If she goes back to the slammer, the evangelical voices and mobilization will just increase exponentially.
“No, if Kim Davis goes back to jail, the sleeping giant (evangelicals in America) will arise even more. Trust me, that’s the last thing liberals want. Evangelicals, especially pastors in the pulpit have been relatively silent as the culture has deteriorated for decades. Don’t you want them to stay sleeping? You’re playing with fire.
Truthfully, Evangelicals have been asleep at the wheel for decades. Sure, there are many that are engaged civically and vote but most don’t. There are roughly 90 million evangelicals in this country. Only half of them are registered to vote. And half of those actually vote.
“You want me to do the math? That means roughly 65 million evangelicals don’t even vote in this country! So evangelicals need to look in the mirror first before casting blame elsewhere. Imagine if millions more actually turned out and voted biblical values. It would have meant no second term for President Obama, therefore no Sonia Sotomayer and Elena Kagan and thus no 5-4 Supreme Court decision in favor of gay marriage. Get the picture…?”
Because you see, the whole game plan is political, and Kim Davis and her ilk are basically useful idiots (attracted by the allure of becoming a publicly acclaimed champion and sometimes also by the potential for crowdfunding dollars) who have been lured into legal troubles by groups like the Liberty Counsel and Alliance Defending Freedom. And they think it will work by energizing enough Evangelical voters to shift political power.
