LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The clerk in Casey County, Kentucky says his religious beliefs won't allow him to issue same-sex marriage licenses.

Casey Davis says he is willing to accept the same consequences as Kim Davis.

He says he's fully prepared to deny marriage licenses to gay couples. So far, no gay couples have come in to request a license since the Supreme Court ruling.

"We've had people call," Davis said. "We've had e-mails. As far as a same-sex couple coming here, no sir, we've not had that. Our deeply held religious beliefs need to be accommodated for, that is what makes our country as special of a place to live as it is."

Davis says he hopes state lawmakers will discuss that when they meet in January.
