Kim Davis, the county clerk of Rowan, Kentucky, on Saturday closed her office ahead of a rally protesting her refusal to issue marriage licenses to gay couples.

A few dozen people took part in the protest, which came a day after Davis asked the Supreme Court to stay a judge's ruling ordering her issue marriage licenses to all qualified couples. The order is scheduled to take effect on Monday. In her emergency application to Justice Elena Kagan, Davis asked for “asylum for her conscience.”

“[Davis] holds an undisputed sincerely-held religious belief that marriage is a union between a man and a woman, only,” Davis' lawyers argued. “Thus, in her belief, SSM [same-sex marriage] is not, in fact, marriage.”

Among those protesting were Camryn and Lexie Colen, who got their marriage license from Davis in February. Camryn Colen is a transgender man.

The Colens said that they reluctantly came forward to help the cause.

“She just saw a straight couple in love,” Camryn told the crowd. “She should see everybody like that.”

Davis' office is open for a half day on the last Saturday of the month, according to the AP.
