Supremes rule on clerk who refuses to marry 'gays'
The full U.S. Supreme Court, including two justices who openly performed “same-sex wedding” ceremonies while the issue was before them, on Monday denied a Kentucky county clerk’s request for a stay of a judge’s order that she issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis’ attorneys with the nonprofit Liberty Counsel had asked for a stay as her case developed at the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
Liberty Counsel founder Mat Staver said Davis would report to work on Tuesday and “face whatever she has to face.”
He told reporters, “She’s going to have to think and pray about her decision … she certainly understands the consequences either way."
