Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis was sent to jail Thursday for continuing to deny a court order that she issue marriage licenses to LGBT couples. Davis has maintained that doing so in light of the landmark Supreme Court ruling legalizing the unions in all 50 U.S. states would violate her Christian religion.
Twitter users were quick to hilariously lampoon Davis and the conservative Christians who cast her as a victim.
OMG ALL THE HOMOSEXUALS JUST GAVE UP BEING HOMOSEXUAL AND CONVERTED TO JESUSISM BECAUSE OF KIM DAVIS

Conservatives were also on standby to lament the outcome of Davis’ hearing in some extreme-sounding terms:
Ahh yes, #KimDavis must go to jail for breaking the law. But illegal immigrants who broke the law……well, that’s ok. No problem.
