• Kentucky Clerk Refuses to Issue Marriage License to Same-Sex Couple

    A Kentucky same-sex couple wanted to get a marriage license in their home county, but they say the clerk refused to grant it based on her religious views.

    Their emotionally charged exchange with an office employee was caught on video.

    Kentucky’s Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis refused to issue a same-sex couple of 17 years a marriage license because she was “worried about her own soul.”

    David Ermold and his long-time partner David L. Moore alerted the office in June that they wanted to obtain their license in the county where they reside and pay taxes, but they never heard back.

    The pair went to the Rowan County Clerk’s office in person on Monday and asked to talk to Davis directly. A friend filmed the couple being ignored by the office staff.

    The couple were finally seen after being passed over for people who arrived after them by the end of the video.

    They spoke to a different employee who says the office was “not issuing any licenses” and that they supported Davis’ religious beliefs “as a Christian” to refuse.
