Kentucky clerk jailed for defying court orders on same-sex marriage
Sept.4, Frankfort A Kentucky official has been jailed for contempt of court after she repeatedly refused to issue marriage licences to gay couples.
Kim Davis said that her faith in Christianity did not allow her to sign the licenses.
The judge said that Davis could go free if she allowed her deputies to grant the licences, but Davis refused.
US District Judge David Bunning said he had "no alternative" but to jail her, because issuing fines would not change her mind.
The US Supreme Court declared gay marriage legal in June.
