Outspoken sex columnist Dan Savage didn't hold back when it came to the subject of Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis Wednesday night on MSNBC.
“She is a hypocrite,” Savage said of the woman who cites her religious belief in illegally refusing to give gay couples marriage licenses.
Citing her three divorces, Savage said: “Jesus Christ himself in Scripture condemns divorce, calls it adultery and forbids it.”

Davis is defying a Supreme Court order by refusing to do her job and issue marriage licenses to gay couples. She has refused and will face a judge Thursday to answer for her defiance. Davis has cited her religious beliefs, which her lawyer admits she only came to four years ago.
Citing a U.S. News report on her multiple marriages and children conceived while she was between husbands, Savage not only called her a hypocrite, but suggested she wanted to be a martyr and accused her of planning to cash in on the controversy.
“I think Kim Davis is waiting to cash in,” said Savage, who is gay. “I predicted from the beginning that she would defy all the court orders, defy the Supreme Court. She would be ultimately be held in contempt of court, lose her job, perhaps go to prison for a short amount of time and then she will have written for her ghost-written books, she will go on the right-wing lecture circuit and she'll never have to do an honest day's work ever again in her life.”
He said one needs a spreadsheet to keep track of her marriages.
"This is a woman who’s been divorced three times and married four times ... gave birth to twins five months after divorcing her first husband, (and) they were fathered by her third husband but adopted by her second husband.”
