NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Hundreds of Christian conservatives have cheered the husband of Kentucky clerk Kim Davis at a rally outside the Tennessee Capitol.

The celebration of Constitution Day was sponsored by the Tennessee Pastors Network and also drew the Rev. Rafael Cruz, the father of U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, the Texas Republican and presidential candidate.

Speaking of the U.S. Supreme Court's recent decision effectively legalizing same-sex marriage, the elder Cruz said, "The devil overplayed his hand."

He said the country needs to elect a constitutional conservative as president, and suggested that Christian conservatives will be roused to action by the ruling.

Speaking briefly after Cruz, Joe Davis simply asked the crowd to pray for him and his wife, who was jailed five days for refusing to license same-sex marriages.
