This morning, Kentucky’s Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis yet again refused to provide a marriage license to same-sex couples.

Last night, the U.S. Supreme Court declined a petition from Davis for an emergency stay on a court order, requiring her to immediately start issuing marriage licenses to all eligible applicants, including same-sex couples.

One of the couples, David Moore and David Ermold, have been together 17 years and were denied a license in a viral video in July.

8 a.m.: David Moore and David Ermold arrived at the Rowan County Courthouse early this morning for a marriage license.

Video emerged this morning of the couple inside the country clerk’s office and their interaction with Davis.

"We are not issuing marriage licenses today," Davis exclaimed.

"Under whose authority are you not issuing licenses?" the couple asked.

"Under God's authority," Davis responded.
