Fred Clark on Kim Davis: "57 Years to the Day After Other White Evangelical Christians in the South Defied a Court Order" Contradicting Their Religious Views

Fred Clark's neat summary of the parallel between the Kim Davis story and the Orval Faubus story: 

Kim Davis was found in contempt of court on September 4 — 57 years to the day after other white evangelical Christians in the South defied a court order they believed contradicted their religious views.

And here's Dave Weigel tweeting a photo from the rally held today in support of Kim Davis in Moorhead, Kentucky, at which another former governor of Arkansas, Reverend Mike Huckabee, presided: 

The photo is from the U.S. News and World Report collection in the Library of Congress, and has been uploaded to Wikimedia Commons for sharing. It shows protestors standing in front of the Arkansas state capitol to support Governor Orval Faubus when he sought to defy the federal government and the Supreme Court as Central High School in Little Rock was integrated.
