Fiorina: 'It's Clear That Religious Freedom Is Under Assault in This Country'
Carly Fiorina appeared on "The Kelly File" tonight to react to the storm of controversy surrounding Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, who refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples due to her Christian faith.
Fiorina said that Davis should have been provided an accommodation, as the law calls for, and never should have been thrown in jail.
"It's clear that religious freedom is under assault in this country, which is why we have to put so much energy around protecting religious freedom," Fiorina said.
She added, however, that Davis crossed a line when she objected to anyone in her office issuing marriage certificates to same-sex couples if the paperwork had her name on it as county clerk.
"As conservatives, we believe it is someone's duty to uphold the law as it is, not as we would like it to be," Fiorina said. "I think she should be given an accommodation, but I do not think she can stand in the way of all marriage licenses being issued by this office."
