This Carter County Detention Center photo obtained September 4, 2015 shows Kim Davis, who was sent to jail for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licensesHundreds rallied Saturday as a show of support for the US clerk who was sent to jail this week for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses, local media reported. Kim Davis, jailed since Thursday for contempt of court, refused to issue the licenses due to her opposition to gay marriage, which the US Supreme Court legalized across the United States in June. “You play a role in this moment of history and may God bless you and God bless Kim Davis,” Mayor George Steele told the crowd at the rally, according to local broadcaster WKYT.
