Local Clerk Discuss Same-Sex Marriage Licenses

An outspoken Kentucky clerk is gaining national attention for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses because of her religious beliefs.
The Supreme Court ruled in late June that same-sex couples were legally allowed to wed. Kim Davis says she is under God’s authority and feels it is against her religion to issue out the licenses.
Right here in Harrison County, clerks say the court has seen no problems with the same-sex marriage licenses. They are simply doing their job.
Harrison County Deputy Circuit Clerk Connie Ladner said, “We took an oath to follow the law and that’s what we had to do and that’s what we did. There are no personal feelings that anybody would share regarding that. I mean, whatever makes you happy, and we’re here to follow the law and that’s what we do.”
Since same-sex marriages became legal, Harrison County has issued around 65 licenses.
