Clerk Must Issue Gay-Marriage Licenses [VIDEO]

By

The Supreme Court on Monday rejected a Kentucky county clerk’s request to deny issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. The high court ruled against Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis in her appeal to refuse issuing same-sex marriage licenses based on her Christian convictions. Davis had turned away couples in the days following the U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized gay marriage. Two gay couples and two straight couples subsequently sued Davis and a federal judge ordered the clerk to begin issuing the licenses. An appeals court upheld that decision and Davis’s lawyer filed a final appeal to the Supreme Court on Friday. “She’ll report to work tomorrow, and face whatever she has to face,” said Mat Staver, founder of the law firm representing Davis.
