When Kim Davis was released from jail today, Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, was there to meet her.

Perkins joined Megyn Kelly on "The Kelly File" tonight for an exclusive interview.

Perkins said that the Supreme Court's decision to allow same-sex marriage means that those who hold an orthodox view on marriage are now barred from serving in some public offices, such as Davis' position as county clerk.

"In this particular case, what you have are the voters of this district, of this region of the country, that elected her as the clerk. And if they don't like what she's doing, they can kick her out," Perkins said. "It's not up to some unelected judge to impose his views on her and hold her in contempt of basically whatever he wants."

Perkins added that all Davis wants is her name removed from the marriage licenses of same-sex couples, so she can live her life according to her faith.

"That's all that Kim Davis wants to do. It's all that Christians across this country want to do. But it's becoming increasingly difficult under the policies of this administration."
