Casey County, Kentucky, clerk Casey Davis says he will not issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples based on his Christian beliefs (video below).
Casey says he will accept the same consequences as Rowan County clerk Kim Davis, who was held in contempt of court and jailed for ignoring a federal court order and a landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling.
"Our deeply held religious beliefs need to be accommodated for, and that is what makes our country as special of a place to live as it is," Casey told WDRB.
It is unclear whether Casey and Kim are related.
Meanwhile, Kim and her husband have become Republicans, reports Reuters.
"My husband and I had talked about it for quite a while and we came to the conclusion that the Democratic Party left us a long time ago, so why were we hanging on?" Kim told Reuters in an interview.
Kim has reportedly altered marriage licenses so that her name, title and name of the county are removed from the documents.
She, however, does not see a problem with her alterations.
"I don't think there should be much of an issue, and the judge didn't have any problem accepting the licenses that were issued when I was incarcerated, which had been altered, so I don't see that there should be an issue," Kim said.
