FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) – A Kentucky clerk of court wants the state to issue marriage licenses online so he doesn’t have to.

Casey County Clerk Casey Davis says same-sex marriage violates his religious beliefs. He stopped issuing marriage licenses following the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling that legalized gay marriage.

Monday, Davis tried to meet with Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear to ask him to call for a special session of the state legislature so it can pass a law allowing people to purchase marriage licenses online, similar to the process of purchasing a hunting or fishing license.

Beshear was in Louisville meeting with Humana officials. But his staff promised Davis the governor would meet with him.

A spokesman for Beshear said the governor would have to evaluate Davis’ proposal.
