The Supreme Court demanded that this Kentucky county clerk issue same-sex marriage licenses. She refused, citing 'God's authority.'

A Kentucky county clerk's office denied two same-sex couples' requests for marriage licenses Tuesday morning, just hours after the Supreme Court ruled against Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis' request to be excused from issuing the licenses. Davis, an Apostolic Christian opposed to same-sex marriage for religious reasons, seems to be sticking to her call to "stand firm," even if that means defying the law. She said Tuesday morning that in refusing to issue any licenses, she was operating under "God's authority." Watch:

Davis, who has stopped providing licenses to both gay and straight couples, could face daily fines or even jail time for denying the marriage licenses.
