It’s coming to a head in Rowan County, Kentucky, today.
Last night, the U.S. Supreme Court denied County Clerk Kim Davis’ request for an emergency stay on the ruling by a federal judge which compels her to do her job and issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
Davis refuses to do so based on her “deeply religious” beliefs. Although, I’m not so certain her religious beliefs are all that deep in that she has apparently been married four times herself, so divorce doesn’t seem to bother her.
It was reported yesterday that one of the gay couples who have tried to obtain a marriage license three times has now filed a lawsuit against Davis and Rowan County in federal court over the issue.
By refusing to follow a federal court order to do her job as County Clerk, Davis now faces contempt charges.
Watch the video below as a gay couple attempts to apply for a marriage license and Davis refuses. The short video cuts off as call to “Call the police!” begin.
