ASHLAND, Ky. (Christian Examiner) -- Federal prisoner Kim Davis walked into the Kentucky jail cell wearing an orange jumpsuit and holding a Bible.

"When I went back into that holding cell I hit my knees and just prayed, just cried out for God to give me some peace and assurance that all was going to be well – and I prayed and I sang," she told me in her first digital interview.

It was September 3 – the day Mrs. Davis became the first Christian jailed as a result of the Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage. Federal Judge David Bunning ordered her jailed for contempt of court after she defied a federal court order to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. He denied her request to accommodate her religious beliefs by simply removing her name from the marriage form.

"That's all I ever asked for," she said. "I didn't ask for them to jump over the moon and give me the stars and pull the sun down for me. I asked a very simple and doable accommodation."
