The Tweet then linked to a page on his campaign site that said this:
Today, judicial lawlessness crossed into judicial tyranny. Today, for the first time ever, the government arrested a Christian woman for living according to her faith. This is wrong. This is not America.
I call upon every Believer, every Constitutionalist, every lover of liberty to stand with Kim Davis. Stop the persecution now.
Though his campaign site addresses a religious perspective that his Tweet did not, it was pure genius to connect Obama and SF’s Mayor ignoring immigration law with Davis’ ignoring the gay marriage law.
