Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis paused as she spoke Tuesday after being released from the Carter County jail in Grayson. Davis, who was jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, was released Tuesday after five days behind bars. U.S. District Judge David Bunning, who ordered Davis jailed Thursday for contempt of court, instructed her Tuesday that she was not to interfere with the issuance of marriage licenses by deputy clerks. After she was released, one of her attorneys, Mat Staver, said, “Kim Davis cannot, will not violate her conscience.” He declined to expand on that statement.
