Kentucky clerk Kim Davis to return to work

Many will be watching a rural Kentucky clerk’s office Monday, Kim Davis’ expected first day back at work after a judge jailed her for refusing to grant marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
    
The Rowan County clerk who believes gay marriage is a sin became a hero to many conservative Christians after she stopped issuing marriage licenses following a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that effectively legalized gay marriage nationwide.
    
She was jailed for five days after U.S. District Court Judge David Bunning found her in contempt of court for refusing his order to issue marriage licenses.
    
In Davis’ absence, her deputy clerks have issued marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
    
Davis hasn’t said what she’ll do when she returns to work Monday but on Friday, her attorneys filed an appeal seeking another delay in issuing licenses.
