Kentucky's Jailed Clerk For Anti-Gay Support To Return Office Monday

Kim Davis
had refused to issue licenses to same-sex couples believing it is a sin. She became hero in the eyes of conservative Christians even though Supreme Court had ruled legalization such marriages in July this year.

The US District Court Judge David Bunning jailed her after finding contempt of court by not doing her work based on the guidelines.

While she was serving the jail, her deputy clerks issued marriage licenses to the same-sex couples.

It is now to watch whether she continue issuing licenses or disobey the law again after she returns back to work. She has not yet said anything about the issue.

Meanwhile, the deputy clerk Brian Mason said last week he will disobey the boss if she does not allow him to issue the licenses.

When Kim was in jail people in hundreds took part in a rally on to support her. They chanted slogans like “Thank you, Kim; Thank you, Kim” in front of the jail house and prayed the clerk could hear them.
They hailed her as a Christian hero saying “God gives his hardest battles to his strongest soldiers.”

James Yates and William Smith Jr. became the first same-sex couples in Rowan County, Kentucky in Kim’s absence. They paid a fee of $35.50 to get the license and it was their sixth attempt for the legal marriage.
