Watch County Clerk Refuse to Issue Marriage License to Same-Sex Couple

Subscribe to TheFW on

The Supreme Court may have ruled same-sex marriage is legal, but that doesn’t mean everyone is abiding by it.

A same-sex couple in Kentucky looking for a marriage license on Monday was rejected by Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis — and the whole incident was caught on video.

David Moore recalled the episode on his Facebook page, writing, “We were denied a marriage license on Monday, July 6 at the Rowan County Clerk’s office.”

A police officer was even summoned around the 9:30 mark and it appears that people behind Moore and his partner get helped before them.

Davis is already staring down the barrel of a lawsuit filed by the ACLU for refusing to obey the law.

Davis is not actually seen on camera until after the 11-minute mark and even then it’s only for a short time because she asks not to be shown.

Davis’ decision to deny the license is part of a trend around the country where officials have not cooperated with the Supreme Court’s decision.
