    Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who refused to issue same-sex marriage licenses, walked out of jail on Tuesday after the U.S. district court judge who found her in contempt said he was satisfied licenses were being issued in accordance with a U.S. Supreme Court decision.

    U.S. District Judge David Bunning ordered her release after six days in jail, saying she "shall not interfere in any way, directly or indirectly, with the efforts of her deputy clerks to issue marriage licenses to all legally eligible couples."

    If she tries to interfere, "that will be considered a violation of this Order and appropriate sanctions will be considered," Bunning said.

    Her lawyer, Mathew Staver, as well as Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee were at Davis' side in front of the Carter County Detention Center, listening to supporters sing, shout and wave flags.

    “Kim is someone who is loyal to God and is loyal to her job and her people. She plans to be back at work this week,” said Staver.

    "Kim Davis cannot and will not violate her conscience," Staver said.

    As an Apostolic Christian, Davis says she believes a marriage can only be between a man and a woman. She has refused to issue any marriage licenses since the U.S. Supreme Court in June made same-sex marriages legal across the United States.

    While she was jailed, the county's deputy clerks issued marriage licenses to several same-sex couples.

    Why do I have a feeling that she will be back in jail in pretty short time?

    This will not go well for Huckabee. As a public servant, there are legitimate ways to deal with laws you feel are unjust. Pretending they don't exist isn't one of them.

    I can't despise the job Obama's done as president and then turn around and give her a pass for exhibiting the same behavior.

    How are we not back at square one?


    Either this hypocrite issues marriage licenses to gays or doesn't "violates her conscience", she can't do both.

    I wish more people in government would go to jail for being terrible at their jobs.

    I find it interesting that for a case where there is no component of attractiveness involved, in nearly every type of discussion of it that I read, hear, or watch, someone brings up the fact that she's ugly. I don't recall another case where this was brought out so often where the person involved wasn't claiming some sort of status based on their attractiveness.
