US clerk jailed for blocking gay marriage released

This Carter County Detention Center photo, obtained September 4, 2015, shows Kim DavisThe US county clerk sent to jail in Kentucky for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples praised God and thanked her supporters Tuesday after a judge ordered her release. Kim Davis, a born-again Christian, was jailed last week for contempt of court after refusing to issue licenses due to her opposition to same-sex marriage, which the Supreme Court legalized across the United States in June. The 49-year-old Davis — who has argued that she should be exempt from following the law because of her religious beliefs — has become a heroine for millions of Americans, and rekindled a thorny debate about gay marriage.
