We're going to turn now to Kentucky, and that county clerk at the center of the debate over same-sex marriage. Back to work today, after being jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, safing she's facing an impossible choice tonight. Obey god or obey the people she serves. ABC's T.J. Holmes is there. Reporter: Today, an emotional Kim Davis, surrounded by law enforcement, promising not to stop her deputies, who are issuing marriage licenses to same sex couples. I'm here before you this morning with a seemingly impossible choice that I do not wish on any of my fellow Americans -- my conscience or my freedom. Reporter: And then -- the first test. Davis staying inside her office, door closed, curtains drawn as Shannon and Carmen wampler-collins, together for 23-year-olds, got their license to wed. There's your receipt, and congratulations. Thank you, Brian. Appreciate it. Reporter: Their license doesn't include Davis's name or the county name. Instead these words -- "Pursuant to a federal court order." Ms. Davis hopes this good faith measures will be sufficient to satisfy the plaintiffs and the court. Reporter: The changes, Davis says, allow her to obey both her god and the judge. David, Kim Davis will continue her fight in court, but today, Kentucky's governor said even without her signature, the marriage licenses issued here are valid. David? T.j., thank you.
