Same-sex marriage

300 people rallied to support jailed clerk Kim Davis

About 300 people gathered outside the Carter County Detention Center in Grayson, Kentucky, on Saturday to support jailed Rowan County clerk Kim Davis, who has repeatedly refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

Supporters, some of whom travelled from other states, rallied with signs like "No to Sodomite Perversion" and "Kim Davis for President," ABC News reports. Davis, who has been jailed since Thursday, would be released should she choose to comply with a federal judge's order to issue the licenses. The clerk has cited religious reasons for not issuing the licenses, saying "God's moral law" conflicts with her job.

Her husband, Joe Davis, has said she'd stay in jail "as long as it takes."
