Demonstrations Continue at Rowan County Courthouse


Demonstrators are still protesting outside the Rowan County courthouse, expressing different opinions on Clerk Kim Davis’s decision to withhold marriage licenses from same-sex and heterosexual couples.

Mount Sterling minister Penny Stinnett is backing the Rowan County Clerk. She says people have traveled from all over the state to support “Biblical marriage.”

“Well, we’re standing out here in support of Kim and her right to not offend her beliefs of a marriage between one man and one woman. We have a constitutional right to defend her and her beliefs just like they have rights to come out here and stand in protest. And so we’re coming and standing on the Biblical marriage right that we have.”

Erika Seagraves wants Davis to step down as Clerk. She thinks the Supreme Court’s ruling should be upheld by state officials, regardless of their personal beliefs.


“It’s the law now so, she’s not doing her job and our founding fathers definitely said that there should be a separation of church and state.”

The lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union was filed in U.S. District Court in Ashland and seeks an injunction against Davis.
