Kim Davis Gives Her Point Of View On Marriage License Issues

Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, who was jailed for almost a week for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses with her name on them, spoke to ABC's "Good Morning America" about her treatment on Tuesday. She said, "I've not been hateful. I'm just a normal person that has been touched by the grace of God and his mercy." Davis told interviewer Paula Faris that she hasn't "always been a good person" because "when I didn't live for God I didn't live for him. I was living for the devil." She was referring to being married four times and having children from "adulterous" relationships.

Today, Davis considers God to be in charge of her life. She stated "My constituents elected me. But the main authority that rules my life is the Lord." Davis says she's good at the job and wants to stay at it. She also said she has homosexual friends who understand where she stands on the issue. She shared "We don't disagree on this issue and we're okay because we respect each other." Davis said she's been called "Hitler" and a "hypocrite, but what's worst is when someone tells her that "my God does not love me or that my God is not happy with me."

In addition, Davis responded to someone who said they finally felt "human" after they received their marriage license. Davis stated "I don't think dignity is guaranteed in the Constitution but something you find within yourself. I feel really sad that someone could be so unhappy with themselves as a person that they did not feel dignified as a human being until they got a piece of paper. I mean, there's just so much more to life than that."
