A Kentucky lesbian couple in Rowan County faced yelling Christians on Monday as they as they applied for a marriage license on Monday.
After Kim Davis announced on Monday that she had returned to work but would not interfere if her clerks wanted to serve same-sex couples, CNN’s Martin Savidge spoke to Shannon and Carmen Wampler-Collins, who were seeking a marriage license.
“We’re here to make Rowan [County] a better place for the teens growing up here,” Carmen explained. “We want to make it safe for them.”
“I grew up here,” Shannon pointed out, “and never in my life expected that I would be able to do this here in my hometown where I grew up with my family.”
Moments later, the couple entered the clerk’s office and were met by a rowdy crowd of Kim Davis supporters.
“Your sin is going to be your demise!” a man yelled. “Because he loves you, he is calling you to himself today… You can’t satisfy yourself, only God can satisfy your needs!”
“It’s an oxymoron!” the man continued. “It is a lie from the pit of Hell that destroys those who participate in homosexual sodomy, and destroys nations that approve of that! So young ladies, today God is calling you to himself!
But against the protests of Davis’ supporters, Shannon and Carmen left the clerk’s office with a marriage license.

Trump impersonator hilariously previews the president’s Mount Rushmore speech
On Friday, musician and Trump impersonator J-L Cauvin posted a video satirically previewing the president's Independence Day speech at Mount Rushmore.
"The Democrats want you to wear masks, but we don't need masks," said Cauvin, impersonating Trump's New York accent. "Everybody's feeling great — stop coughing! Everybody's feeling great. So healthy. Such great health."
"Democrats want to kill you and silence you," he continued.
He then delivered a parody rant against removing statues, which sources report Trump will make a central point of his speech. "Thomas Jefferson, that's another one they hate. Everyone makes mistakes, but he had African-American girlfriends!"
WATCH: Trump advisor trashes Dr. Fauci — while pushing coronavirus conspiracy theories
White House economic advisor Peter Navarro pushed several conspiracy theories about the COVID-19 pandemic as the administration attempts to deflect blame for America responding to coronavirus worse than any other developed country.
At one point in the interview, MSNBC's Ali Velshi had to ask, "What are you talking about?"
Navarro harshly criticized Dr. Tony Fauci, who is one of his colleagues in the administration.
And he tried to blame the "Chinese Communist Party" for the disease, saying "they spawned the virus, they hid virus, they sent hundreds of thousands of Chinese nationalists over here to seed and spread the virus before we knew."
‘Gaslighting on a massive scale’: Doctor warns Trump is lying us into a COVID disaster
On CNN Friday, Dr. Celine Grounder tore into President Donald Trump's ongoing falsehoods about the coronavirus pandemic.
"No matter how many times public health officials, especially like Anthony Fauci, speak the truth, what does it do, Doctor, when the president continues to lie to the public in face of a public health crisis?" asked anchor Kate Bolduan.
"This is gaslighting on an enormous scale, and means until people eventually get sick or their family members get sick, the communities hit hard, they won't believe it, and then it will be too late," said Grounder. "The problem is there's a lag period from the time that somebody's infected and starts to develop symptoms a couple days later. We don't see people get severely sick and need to be hospitalized and in ICUs until a week into disease, and talking about probably one to two weeks of lag time from the time somebody's exposed at least before you start to see hospitalizations and then another couple weeks before you start to see deaths."
