Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis says her office will not be issuing any marriage licenses at this time.
She said she made this decision based on her Christian beliefs and because she does not want to discriminate against anyone.
This issue arose after Friday's U.S. Supreme Court ruling invalidating a ban in all 50 states on same sex marriage.
The state Attorney General has been contacted by the county attorney's office for an official opinion.
Anyone wishing to receive a marriage license should contact a surrounding county until a decision is reached on the legal repercussions of this matter.
