The notorious Kentucky county clerk is sticking to her anti–gay marriage guns.
After Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis was jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, her deputies began processing licenses for gay couples on Friday.
Kim Davis's religiously-motivated refusal to let same-sex couples get marriage licenses led to a judge jailing her.
Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis said she was still barring couples from obtaining the documents "under God's authority."
Kim Davis says she's acting "under God's authority," but the elected official could soon be found to be in contempt of court.
While the judge determined that Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis should issue licenses indiscriminately, he opted to stay this ruling because of an appeal she is pursuing in the Sixth US Circuit Court of Appeals.
A federal judge ordered Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis to start issuing licenses and to stop "openly adopting a policy that promotes her own religious convictions at the expense of others."
Legislators and county clerks are calling for an electronic marriage license system, so those who take exception to the Supreme Court gay marriage ruling don't have to go against their religious beliefs.
