INDIANAPOLIS - A southwestern Indiana county clerk says she won't issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples because of her biblical beliefs and what she calls a lack of clear direction.
Daviess County Clerk Sherri Healey tells the Washington Times-Herald that at least two same-sex couples who've tried to get marriage licenses from her office have been turned away since U.S. District Judge Richard Young threw out Indiana's ban on same-sex marriage on Wednesday.
Healey says there's a gray area between Young's ruling and an advisory from the state attorney general's office, so she's waiting for something more precise.
She told one disgruntled license seeker that the U.S. "was founded on the biblical principle of one man and one woman in marriage." She says that's what she'll follow until she hears otherwise.
A judge still has not ruled either way in Attorney General Greg Zoeller's request for a stay in the decision that upended Indiana's ban on gay marriage.
The Hoosiers Unite group plans to visit Zoeller's offices Friday and present him with more than 8,000 signatures asking him to stop his appeal of the ruling.
