It didn’t take long, but one woman has decided that America’s marriage equality laws don’t apply to her.
The US made a huge step forward this year in equality for same-sex couples when it legalised gay marriage, however, one clerk in Kentucky, who is apparently on her fourth marriage, has decided that the law doesn’t apply to her.
Due to her religious beliefs Kim Davis, 49, is refusing to hand out a marriage license to a gay couple, even though there is a federal court order for her to do so.
She appealed the order to the Supreme Court of the United States requesting that her religious freedoms should exclude her from doing that part of her job. However the court refused her request.
Ms. Davis was caught on camera refusing to give David Moore and his partner a marriage license.
