This morning two gay couples were denied marriage licenses at the Rowan County courthouse in Kentucky.
The Courier-Journal reported:

 

Two couples were denied marriage licenses Tuesday morning at the Rowan County courthouse, the morning after the U.S. Supreme Court denied clerk Kim Davis’s request for a stay of an order that she issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

An intense standoff ensued as one of the couples demanded to speak with Davis.

Supporters and protesters of Davis had gathered outside well before the courthouse opened.

A gay couple was denied a license for the third time this morning.
