Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis is now refusing to issue marriage licenses entirely, to avoid having to issue one to a gay or lesbian couple.

Davis argues that issuing marriage licenses to gay couples goes against her religious beliefs, however multiple courts have ruled that she is not free to impose her religious beliefs at work.
