"I now see this case has absolutely no merit, and I have wasted everyone's time. It looks like the Supreme Court has been making rulings with the force of law under the authority of the Constitution since Marbury v. Madison in 1803," stated Staver, who runs the Liberty Counsel - a quasi-law practice that promotes conservative Christian beliefs above the rule of law, and pays no taxes by also claiming to be a ministry.

about how the United States functions under something called the "rule of law."
"I must have sounded like a complete idiot when I compared Davis to a Jew being led into a gas chamber by the Nazis for denying same-sex couples a marriage license. After my rudimentary research, the people claiming she is Rosa Parks or Martin Luther King or something look completely nuts and civically ignorant," said Staver.
Mr. Staver also confessed he now understood "that chaos and mob rule would result" if government employees and everyone else were allowed to choose what laws they wanted to follow, because "the rule of law is supreme, not some jerk's religious beliefs."
A short time after his press conference, Staver informed Davis he could not continue to represent her "in good conscience," and wished her "the best of luck."
