MOREHEAD, Ky. (WSAZAP) — Minutes after the Rowan County Clerk’s Office opened Tuesday morning, Clerk Kim Davis’ again denied a marriage license to a same-sex couple.
Davis say the Office is denying the licenses ‘under God’s authority’
The denial comes hours after a U.S. Supreme Court Justice declined to intervene in Davis’ fight to deny marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
A stay issued by U. S District Court Judge David Bunning expired on Monday.
Davis stopped issuing licenses the day the U.S. Supreme Court legalized gay marriage. Bunning ordered her to issue them, and an appeals court upheld that decision.
Davis arrived at the courthouse shortly after 7 a.m. Tuesday.
